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.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours cloudy, hazy, murky orange color with thin off white head. I didn’t think I agitated the bottle but there’s a lot of goddamn particles in here. Aroma is yeasty, with orange and corriander, some sweet banana. Thicker on the tongue than others such as hoegaarden but with a light fizziness that is not unpleasant. Flavors are sweet and wheaty, yeasty, with orange peel and coriander. Finish is zesty and moderately acidic, lightly spicy. Pretty nice, loses some points for texture but everything is there, and good, and damn refreshing.

TheQuaffer (14) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Bottled from Ghent. My favourite Abbey brewery working with the Godfather of wheat beers, sounds like a good combo! A hazy orange colour with a good head. A spicy aroma & citrusy taste. One of the best wheat beers I’ve ever had!

Hazy yellow colored brew. Aroma is full of citrus. Very creamy and thick white, nice smooth malty flavor. Overall a nice white from St. Bernard.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2007
From bottle : Pours a very light cloudy yellow color with a big white foamy head. Aroma of vanilla, citrus and spices. Palate is a little thin i think. Taste is lime and spices, not much though, a little watery i think. But not bad.

Skyview (5411) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2007
By joebew’s recommendation we acquired a 1/6th barrel for our store party. Served on draught, pours a cloudy golden beige brew with a decent white head and great lacing. Aroma of sweet citrus/orange with wheat/multigrain malt with a touch of yeast. Taste is smooth, very lightly carbonated, medium bodied with flavors of wheat, citus/orange and a touch of vanilla. Finish is smooth, creamy with a decent citrusy and spiced aftertaste.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Pours a cloudy gold with a white head that doesn’t stay around long at all. Nose is a touch of orange with that hearty witbier fragrance and some yeast thrown in the mix. Flavor is great and thick with a heavy citrus/orange flavor that has a strong touch of spice there as well. Feel is nice with a decent level of carbonation. Way too drinkable. I want to be able to sip and savor this one, but it is so smooth and easy to drink that it’s easy to just go through one extremely quickly.

This great looking wit has a balanced aroma of citrus, vanilla, and wheat. The strong taste of yeast with creamy elements came forward right away. I enjoyed the flowing smooth taste with the spark of hops.
