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.

Hazy yellow with white head. Sweet aroma of citrus fruits & wheat. Medium carbonated. Sweet flavor of fruit and light spice with a crisp refreshing finish.

yespr (31090) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2008
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with a dense chalk white head. Aroma is citrus fruity, slight malty and dry wheaty. Flavour starts sweet with a light fruity note following. Wheat flavours go into a rather dry flavour. Finish holds a subdued sweetness to a rather dry light spiced wheat flavour. Nice.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2004
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, and even though the style is far from my favorite, this is a beer I really like and probably will have again, when the weather gets warmer.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Greyish orange, hazy beer with a decent head. Classic Belgian wheat beer with loads of fruit and added orange and coriander. Decent but nothing spectacular. 190304

Bottled. Hazy yellow coloured with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, coriander and cloves. Sweer citrus flavour with notes of coriander and cloves. Slightly bitter finish. A bit too spicy for my liking.

Bottled. Hazy yellow colour, big white head. Aroma is dishwater, acidic citrus fruit and yeast. Flavour is yeast, dishwater and slight citrusfruits. Quite standard witbier.

omhper (19333) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2003
Bottled. Pale orange and cloudy with smallish head. Orange, peach and curacao aroma. Pleasantly spicy and flavourful, is that seville orange peels which are so obvious? Medium dry and really well balanced with a touch of bitterish spices in the finish. A top wit!

Very hazy gold beer, little white head. Light crispy dry palate. Dry seltzer minerals. Papery tones. Meh!

Blond color, clean; too much foam. Deep aroma: malt, spices, banana. A bit sweet; boring.
