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.

Some citrusy flavors along with some light spicyness. Not a beer I fell in love with but I might pick up another bottle at some point

kidmartinek (4670) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Slightly cloudy straw yellow with a 2 inch dense white head. It’s the color of cream soda. Aroma of bright wheat malt, and orange peel. Medium strength flavor, thats is sweet malty and citrus. A really strong citrus beer. It taste like theres a half of an orange squeezed in there. Dry palate and finish. A little watery. Average lacing.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Smells spicy sweet, yeasty with a little orange. Dirty appearance witha rusty orange color. The spicy-ness comes out more in the taste as corriander, and of course very orangey. Overall a yeasty fruity beer, not bad, not great.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Nose very flowery with citrus and some pepper notes. Nice strength, filling the room. Body is a cloudy yellow with large fluffy white head. Tastes of peppery fruit with some wheat.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2008
bottle - Pours hazy light yellow with a citrusy, yeasty aroma and a lasting white head. The flavor is of wheat malt, mild hops, citrus, a maybe a touch of spice. It’s light and finishes surprisingly bitter for the style, but it works. Enjoyable.

gueuzeisgod (113) - Graham, North Carolina, USA - APR 21, 2008
Pours very hazy, almost milky (from the unmalted wheat). Nice fruity yeast aroma, some standard clove, banana, orange peel, a little bit of ’ginger ale’. Similar to, but a bit of a departure from the standard Weienstephan characteristics. Mouthfeel is soft, just a bit of carbonation bite on the tongue. Really delicious, only drawback is price, preventing this from being an everyday drinker.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2008
[bottle] Pours a hazy yellow/gold with massive rocky white head. Aroma is lots of spices and clove-y wheat. Mouthfeel is fantastic - light but rich at the same time. Flavors of lemon zest, wheat malt, bready yeast. Awesome beer.

ABUSEDGOAT (2588) - California, USA - APR 16, 2008
Cloudy yellow, moderate head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is fruity with notes of spices, yeast, pale malts. Medium bodied, quite sweet. Nothing special IMO.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 8, 2008
Bottle. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of corriander and oranges - just like a witbier should be. The color is an unclear dark orange and it has a fine head. The flavor is very fresh lemony to start off before the corriander and oranges hits in the middle, just to give way for a rather hop bitter end which is very nice for a witbier. A orange dryness lingers for quite a while both on the palate and tongue. I must admit, that this is the best witbier I’ve ever had.
