COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional witbier has been developed under supervision of the father of Hoegaarden and Celis White, master brewer Pierre Celis. This beer has been bottle-refermented, which lent it its specific taste.

JonMoore (1904) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a murky yellow colour with small white head, quickly gone. Aroma is coriander/vanilla and malt. Taste is great; light spices, citrus. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, wheaty finish. Excellent.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 21, 2004
Cloudy pale yellow. Firm white head, 1cm tall, rocky. Creamy coriander aroma, lemongrass and well-defined malt. Yeasty palate with traces of must and grass. Subdued wheat. Nice lemon flavors. Refreshing and quaffable. While I expected it a bit tastier, the texture is great, well carbonated and a well built medium body.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Cloudy and hazy pale golden color, spicy, earthy citrus aromas, nice white creamy head that sticks to the sides of my glass. Fresh lemons and mild spice flavors, crisp carbonated mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry with a touch of orange, great for the style, a very drinkable and refreshing brew.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Beer pours quite dark golden for a wit with a dissipating egg white head. Aroma is pretty right on, with notes of coriander, yeast, and a bit of rum soaked raisins, which was unexpected. Flavor is really nice. Quite dry, with a bit of wheat and spiciness. Very refreshing. I could do with a lot more of these during the summer here in Texas.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2004
Yellow with grey tones, cloudy. Acidic aroma with citrus and spice tones. Round vanilla note. Round sweet flavor. Citrus and spice notes. Malty with a bit of a fresh stony note. I dig this one

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Has a nice cloudy pineapple yellow color and not much head compared to the other St Berny’s. Like them however, it smells like fresh bread, granted this has more of a sweeter simple side to them. The flavor is a very nice smooth citrus and malt flavor. Reminds me heavily of lemons and the smell of fresh cut grass. Definitely an ideal summer beer.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Pours a golden orange with medium white head. Aroma is fruity, some spice, wheat. Initial flavor is acidic and acidic, then grainy, vanilla, with a medium body and a solid wheat finish. Very smooth. Could use a bit more spice.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2004 I was really impressed with this wheat beer. What is amazing to me is that this beer although deffinitely a wheat beer still retains a strong Belgian character. The nose is espesially wonderfull, fild with fruitiness, whiskey-esque, and citrus. The drink is the definition of refreshing and light, but not like a lite beer. No the taste is complex and compelling from start to end. I’ve nothing but good things to say about this brew.

This is pretty darn refresing wheat beer that I really liked. Lots of of foam and good on the nose, decent bite, just not much in the aftertaste

Poured a hazy yellow with a large white head. Fruit and yeasty smells (oranges, limes). Tastes like it smells.
