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.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with average white head. Aroma of orange peel and spices. Flavor is fruity and a bit tart. Lingering tartness in the finish. Very enjoyable and an excellent example of the style.

Gradevole blanche, ma un po’ acida per i miei gusti. Esempi di blanche come la De Namur sono sicuramente più interessanti. E’ comunque molto dissetante

chefseanjudd (28) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2014
Aroma is dough, citrus, floral, slightly bready. Pale yellow, cloudy with a strong and lasting white head. Taste is medium sweet, mild hop bitterness and a touch of sour. Medium bodied yet strangely thin, lively carbonation, dry finish. Overall a refreshing witbier without some of the more cloying characteristics found in other beers of the style.

Klassisches Weißes mit ein wenig an Gewürzen, ein bisschen Wässrigkeit, dazu ein wenig Säure und Vanille. Es gibt durchaus bessere, aber das hier punktet schon ganz gut mit seiner Frische.

McTapps (3574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 16, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a hazy white-vanilla colour with airy steady head and crisp body. Aroma of acid, hops and flowers. Taste of mild fresh hops, citrus, grass, ligth yeast, light wheat, acid and green nuts. Dry finish. Refreshing and nice - enjoyed it (but I don’t think it is a spectacular witbier).

Pepinis (24) - SPAIN - JUN 15, 2014
Cerveza de trigo belga con notas cítricas y especiadas. Levadura presente tanto en el gusto como en el aroma. Muy refrescante, de cuerpo leve y con buena carbonatación. El retrogusto es levemente ácido y astringente. Una cerveza con todas las características propias de su estilo.

cloudy yellow pour aroma of yeast lemons corriander wood taste is barley miso, corriander, clove. a bit sour. sulfur is strong with this one. Creamy palate. A bit too simultaneously sticky and watery. A bit overrated here just like Pierre Celis’s other masterstroke: the hoegaarden.

Blanche abbastanza buona, con tutto ciò che ci sia aspetta: coriandolo, leggera buccia di limone, molto fresca. Piacevole.
