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.

Tognetta (189) - Campinas, BRAZIL - MAR 9, 2015
Paladar diferenciado, acida e cítrica (laranja), esse estilo é difícil de acertar, mas a marca não foge da tradição, otimo exemplar. Paladar sedoso, aftertaste na medida.

ninecats (249) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle at Turisten, Ljungskile. Hazy pale yellow, two finger white head quickly dissipating, creating a lid on the surface. Aroma of juicy, musty funk and citrus, a subtle yeast tone, berries, slight spicy and a bit woody. Taste is initially sour, with citrus and oranges, making room for more spices, like coriander, yeast hints. Later more sweet rounded fruits, like banana, appear, likely from esters. Ends quite dry with a lingering sourness and phenolic feel. Light to medium body, medium carbo, quite round mouthfeel despite its fresh and drinkable character. A most delicious wit!

Excellent blend of citrus and spice. Smooth mouth feel and fantastic aromas on the nose. Very refreshing for the summer.

CRock (92) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
One of the best wits that I’ve had. It’s crisp and refreshing. The two most important attributes of a beer.

Meni vähän ohi mutta maukas olut, pitänee uudelleenreitata tulevaisuudessa.

Aroma bem suave, coloração clara e bem leve! St. Bernardus nunca decepciona.

Moravius (740) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 20, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Beerbaboon, Berlin-Charlottenburg. - Sattes Gelb, milchig trüb. - Nase schwach zitrusfruchtig aber kandissüß, angenehm hefig und mit den typischen Wit-Aromen: Orangenschale, Koriander, Anis. - Antrunk schlank und mild hefig mit Weizenmalz, blasser Frucht (Limone, weiße Trauben) und einem Schuß Koriander. Sehr mild säuerlich, keineswegs aggressiv. Gut rezent, spritzig, leicht trockenes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang sehr milde aber ausreichende zitronige Herbe und ein Hauch von Kellerluft. - Angenehmes, mild-erfrischendes und sehr rundes Wit.

drdisque (611) - Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2015
On tap at Bangers & Lace during St. Bernardus tap takeover. Very smooth, frothy and complex wit. The head melts into the body of the beer. Significant wheat notes, but not harsh at all. Very soft mouthfeel. Sweet and slightly spicy in all the right places. Outstanding wit.

ElManana (832) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - FEB 13, 2015
Pours cloudy yellow with a big white foamy head. Aroma of coryander, citrus, orange. Taste is coryander, oranges, yeast. Too much spices, I prefer Hoegaarden.
