I was not overwhelmed tasting this in a bottle, but later had the good fortune to find it on tap at Touristhotellet, near Gothernburg. Blimey!! Utterly sensational on tap... Without doubt, the finest Belgian white I have tasted. There is some citrus in the taste, for me, but not too much. The malts are rich and pleasing. Wonderful!

bottle. pour is hazy yellow/orange with good carbonation and no head to speak of. Nose is very citrusy, spicey, and yeasty. Flavor is nice--coriander, orange, soil, earthy yeast. A well balanced belgian wit. Very nice on the palate....would love to try one of these on a hot, sunny day.

Poured deep yellow and hazy, the head on mine foamed up huge and then shrank down and stuck around for a while. Smells like oranges and spice with a wiff of wheatyness. Very nice citrus (I got mostly orange) and spice balanced with a really nice sweetness, a little bitter on the finish. It’s taken the top spot on my favorites list!

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2009 Bottle, 33 cl.
Aroma lemon, coriander and other spices, wheat, yeast. Medium body.
Taste spices and coriander come out ahead of the citrus, bit orange peel in it
one of the best whitebeers.

It’s hard to comment enthusiastically on a wheat like this where nothing is really out of the ordinary. To me, this is standard wheat fare in everything from color to taste, although I did enjoy it on our rooftop terrace on a hot sommer’s day. I find this to be overrated and my favorite wheat remains La Celisette and lesser brother Celis Wit.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2007 Long lasting small white head tops a muddy dirty dark yellow body (looks like the by-product of someone who’s been drinking too much St-Bernardus ABT 12). Citrusy nose with some bretty notes. Taste is very fruity (peach, mango, watermelon) and somewhat grassy. Thick malty and yeasty body with a doughy feel/taste. Hopping reminds of some classic pils although it only shows-up quickly in the finish. By witbier standards this is a pretty heavy beer (densely fruity). One of my favorite witbier.
