4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle into a nonic.
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a huge three finger billowy white head. The fluffy head sticky around for a long time and leaves huge clumps of lacing on the sides of the glass. This is what a wit should look like. Picture perfect.
The aroma just jumps out of the glass with lemon and coriander dominating. There are more subtle hints of clove, banana, and orange. There is a real sharpness to the aroma that I love.
The flavor brings forth tons of coriander and more orange than was present in the aroma. Fresh baked bread along with lemon provide support along with a delicate tartness on the tip of the tongue. Perfect soft wheat character along with abundant carbonation that is perfect for the style.
Overall, this is what every witbier should strive to be like. To me, this is the absolute defining beer of the style and by far the best wit I have ever had. I only wish I could get this close to where I live because I would go through cases during the summer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, capped. I need to start running through these St. Bernardus beers. They are all unique, and I seem to enjoy them a ton, but always seem to pass for no reason at all. Pale golden color with an active fizz head. Corn, and spice fronted aroma with a tiny citrus. Flavor is pretty close, though the coriander spice takes up the majority of the role. Lingering corny grain. A bit dry throughout. Not a desirable style for me typically, but this wasnt bad. Intriguing flavor. Very cool. Minty in the late palate. Fun stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle, BBE 15.10.17
Served in tumbler at around 5 degrees Celsius
The beer pours cloudy dark yellow with a medium head of foam, which dissipates relatively slowly. The aromas are primarily from spices, fruits and malts; coriander, citrus and wheat. The taste follows the aromas pretty much and is a bit sour, citrusy and yeasty. Overall a good rendition of the Belgian witbier, but in my opinion also nothing overwhelming.
