Cloudy golden yellow pour with a nice thick, fluffy white head. The perfect looking Witbier. Aroma is light and pleasant. Lemon zest, sweet dough, white pepper. Very refreshing taste. Slightly spicy on the front end, followed by oranges, honey, and coriander. Finish is dry and clean. Flavor is slightly more subdued than I expected but it’s still very delicious. Overall, this beer is great. The biggest drawback for me is the price and availability. I’ve only come across the beer a handful of times and when I do it’s usually around $5 a bottle. Delicious, but not worth the $5 price tag to buy regularly.

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.

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.
