UDBeernut (2140) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2012
bottle poured into St. Bernadus Goblet a: straw yellow with a nice silky 1/2" head with excellent retention. Reduces to a cap. s: Lemon zest, orange, corriander, pepper, slight biscuit aroma t: clean taste, a slight yeast flavor. The pepper smell also transfers to taste. Don’t taste the citrus as much as I would have expected.

Turva,coloração amarelo opaca,espuma mediana deixando uma fina camada até o fim;aroma cítrico,frutado e de especiarias;envolta em uma boa base maltada traz um sabor um pouco salgado, levemente picante,trazendo frutas cítricas e coentro,banana quase não é notada,boa carbonatação,refrescante,boa drinkability. Uma Wit suave que não me impressionou,esperava um pouco mais.

the aroma of citrus and some spices with some shades of yeast... the taste is fruity and spicy with notes of lemon, clove, white bread and yeast... the aftertaste is sweet and dry...

Pajiza turbia, abundante espuma. Aroma a limón y cilantro. Carbonatacion y cuerpo medios. Sabor cítrico con toque espaciado. Buena muestra del estilo, aunque no destaca tanto como otras Bernardus.

Wow, I was not expecting this beer to be this good. St Bernardus makes quality Doubles, Triples and Quads, but add wheat beer to the resume. It smells very strong, almost offputting. Pours a cloudy golden colour. Taste is infidelity wheat beer, but with very little sweetness. Lots of carbonation Overall I was very impressed. First wheat that I had where there was very little sweetness to it. This is the only beer I would even consider better then Erdinger. Although, I still prefer the later. MB

Nice wit, similar to an hefe-weizen beer. Wheat, gently. Straw, grass, sun. Gentle aftertaste.
