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.

Kita (996) - Koper, SLOVENIA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy straw color with large rocky white head, good lacing, with tiny traces of yeast sediment and sparkling appearance. Aroma of wheat, citrus, coriander and yeast. Taste starts light sweet grainy malty with sudden citric following and a bit spicy mouthfeel, while finish is surprisingly bitter for such style. Medium to full body, slick texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Very refreshing brew, but a bit too sour for my taste...

Bottle bought in Brugge last Christmas. A hazy golden/yellow coloured pour with a healthy white head on top. Typical Belgian spice, citrus, yeasty aroma. Tastes similar, spice, yeasty, citrus fruit, some orange in there too. A very good example of a Belgian Wit.
