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.

330ml Bottle It pours a very cloudy golden body with a tight laced medium thick head. Its aroma is predominantly sweet but with hints of malt and citrus. Its flavour is a little less exotic with the sweetness coming to the fore a bit too much and masking some of the other flavours which include biscuit, and malt with citrus and the usual smokey bitter finish you get with Belgian beers.

Poura a cloudy golden color. Aroma of citrus, yeast, herbal and fruity. Tatse of citrus, yeast and fruit. Mild bitterness and a slightly sweet finish. Moderate body and well balanced. Although I am not a big fan of wit beers, this was enjoyable.

tom10101 (2213) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Hazy golden/orange with a medium persistent white head and some lacing. Aroma is of yeast, coriander, orange peel, minty touch, herbal notes and light citrus/tropical fruits. Taste is yeasty with spices (not overwhelming), orange peel/citrus and herbal notes. Light body (not watery at all though). Good carbonation. Heavily drinkable. Well balanced. Nice fruity touch. One of my favorite Witbier.

DandyWolfFloyd (614) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2014
A yeasty doughy and somewhat honey like allure. Color is a hazy gold, with a surprisingly absent head, only a thin white ring. Taste was of a lightly sweet, champangney-barnyardy, honeysuckle flowery taste. Palate feel was light of body, with a thin texture, fizzy carbonation, and a shortly subsiding finish. A good white, not the best. Not the best St. Bernardus either, but it was enjoyable.

From a bottle. Pours cloudy pale yellow with ample white head and effervescent bubbles. Smells like a summer meadow. Smooth mellow lemon and grass flavors, very refreshing. Solid wheat beer... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I am loving wits these days. This one is really good. It is cold, it is cloudy, and it feels good on my sore throat.

Opaque light yellow with small white foam head. Aroma is little citrus like, some wheat. Taste is not too outstanding, good witbier. Aftertaste if fresh, citrus, some orange. (Utrecht 201312)

330ml into a tulip glass. Pours a nice cloudy lemon-brown with reasonable creamy looking ivory head. Aroma has all the coriander and orange zest expected of the Wit style. The taste is spices (particularly coriander), orange & lemon zest, banana & an unwelcome faint hint of wet cardboard. Mouthfeel is very good for the style, full-bodied & creamy. Overall, pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
