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.

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.

La St.Bernardus Wit est une bière blanche non filtrée d'un goût doux et ample avec des nuances d'agrumes et de coriandre fraîche. Cette bière est créée en collaboration avec Pierre Celis, le 'godfather' de la bière blanche belge. Tout comme les autres bières de la brasserie, la bière blanche subit une nouvelle fermentation après la mise en bouteille.

This is a very solid Witbier!!! The body has a yellow tan color and lots of cloudy yeast making it darker than other Witbiers that I have seen. There are lots of little bits of yeast particles floating around inside as well. On top the head is thick and foamy with a creamy off white color. There is also a dusting of light brownish tan yeast on top of the head. This head has good retention and makes some nice slick lacing on the glass. The aroma has a full nose filled with wheat, yeast, light grain and some mild hops. Its flavor has a good wheat malt base with clove and spice notes mixed with some citrus light, fruity/funky yeast (apple and pear notes) and mildly bitter hops. It finishes fairly dry with a touch of spicy hops over yeast notes. The palate is medium bodied with a solid texture and nice soft yet active carbonation.

A cloudy yellow with a creamy white head that left think lace. Aroma of banana, clove, and wheat. The flavor followed along with banana and clove with a lemon backing. Light body.
