Poured out of a 12oz bottle. Light yellow, cloudy, unfiltered morning piss color. Smells like ripe apples, banana, and chlorine? Smells good overall. Flavor is sour bananas. Where is the sour coming from? Fermented white grapes and wheat. But after the 20th sip, itís growing on me. The mouthfeel is silky, but still sour. Overall, i wonít have it again, but if nothing else is around, itís a good brew over many others.

Pours amber and cloudy with a white head. Smells of cumin, ginger and concentrated citrus. Tastes spicy and doughly with coriander and lots of spice. More going on here than I would have expected. Well done.

bottle said best before 1/6/07. It was still wonderful! I really needed some summery beer and stumbled upon this. Pours cloudy yellow almost looks like a ginger ale. with the aroma of fresh baked bread i was reminded of a nice euro bakery. This has a amazing citrus Zest taste and has a very refreashing feel.! Perfect for the hot season!

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 11.2 fl oz bottle at Waldo Pizza KCMO. I actually drank two bottles of this, and for those of you who know me, and know the beer list at Waldo, thatís saying something. Pour is a hazy yellow orange with a good sized white head. Aroma is lemon and orange citrus is spice and coriander. Taste was extremely zesty, with more of the citrus fruit and Belgian yeast sugar sweetness and a nice sourness to the finish. There is great body for a Wit, and the finish is snappy, a perfect palate cleanser. This beer really blew me away. Perfectly refreshing, perfectly balanced with the pizza. All in all a great beer.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 Incredible wit. Pour was a cloudy white with a thin one finger head. Aroma of yeast and spice. Taste was nice and strongly spiced and creamy. Medium carbonation. Coriander and citrus that are perfectly balance. As I finish this I realize this is the best wit Iíve ever had.

Nice hazy peach color.Little head, fades away rather quickly. The beer smells fruity a peachy/pear smell I would say, but this is not very pungent. There are definitely fruit flavors in this beer, but they are rather weak. The beer is smooth. The beer is very creamy and smooth. I like this better than most Witbierís I was just expecting a better taste from St. Bernardus. Donít get me wrong, you should try this beer they make a fine product. The malty taste is great and this is a decent brew.

My follow up to the abt 12. From bottle pours a nice hazy dark yellow with a fair amount of head. Not the strongest flavor but good.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy yellow color with an average head. Aroma of yeast, mixed spices, and a little bit of citrus. Full flavored, with a nice spicy kick along with banana notes, grass, and a little bit of funk. Nice and full mouthfeel. Definitely one of the best witbiers I have ever had.

Pours a cloudy straw blonde with a medium white head. Smells of wheat, citrus, and some lemon and orange. Very refreshing smell. Taste has big wheat characters as expected. Good dose of citrus fruits and a little spice as well. Very crisp taste, I gulped this brew down quite fast. Good wit beer from a solid brewery.
