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 @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Hazy pale amber with a thin white head cover, strips of lace. Taste is wheat and malt with light yeast that moves toward light bittering before adding citrus and coriander in a short finish. A light, cleansing, delectable brew.

Pours a very light, pale, hazy yellow with a large foamy white head. Strong aromas of Belgian yeast, coriander, orange peel, lavender, some hay, and a bit of white wine. Has a fairly light body with a soft carbonation, very light and refreshing. Taste has a medium sweetness with a nice citrusy bitterness along with that familiar Belgian flavor.

Ysok02 (203) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
Belle robe trouble et belle mousse crémeuse mais nez discret, levuré et fruité, bouche aqueuse et manquant de complexité.

Lots of toasted malt, toasted wheat and banana. Low hopped. Plenty of yeast and some citrus tang. Hazy unfiltered look, sweet grass flavor.

Geiserich (3564) - Linz, AUSTRIA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle from saveure-biere.com: Aroma with citrus, citrus peel and spices. Very hazy yellow color with a nice creamy white head. Flavor has some fruitiness of citrus without sourness, more a dry citrus peel and spice note. Good.

Freaky_tiki (705) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Final bottle from 6 pack sampler is the wit & it seems to confirm that this style is not my favourite. It’s cloudy in the glass. Sips bring shrill flavours of tart orange peels, lavender hand soap & coriander spicing. As a reviewer below observes, the soapy notes take me out of the experience. Won’t have this again. Love this brewery; don’t like this beer.
