Ernest (6181) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (basement/cement), with notes of pepper, banana, apple, cotton candy, and alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. I have never liked the St. Bernardus yeast, being very much like damp basement/cement, and this is chock full ío that. Add in the cotton candy and apple notes, and this just isnít enticing at all to my nose...pepper and toasty malt are pretty much the only good points. Sweet and more boozy than the 6% would suggest. Not a fan, and Iím also confused why this is considered a witbier since it doesnít seem to have any characteristics of that style (other than being vaguely Belgian-styled). *shrug*

Ik drink al niet heel graag witbieren, er zijn er goede bij, maar dit is er niet bij. Ik vond het niet zo goed.

Golden with a creamy white head. Aroma is bread, coriander, honey, candi sugar, Belgian yeast. Medium bodied, sweet on the palate. Flavour is wheat, coriander, orange peel, Belgian yeast, heather honey. Delicious. Wish I hadn't spilled half my cup.

Jak dla mnie calkiem przyjemne piwo. Piekna i trwale wogole nie opadajaca piana. Jasno zlocisty kolor, chuczne otwarcie korka firmowego. Do tego mocne zmetnienie do zmiany koloru az na zgnilo zielonu. W zapachu fiolki i maki. Lakow warstwa zapachowa. Piwo tresciwe ale lekkie mimo to. Przyjemne deguustacyjne i napewno prestizowe. Butelkowane: 3 February 2012. Polecam

750 ml (corked and caged) bottled over 2 years ago from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe glass. The cork blasted off and hit the high ceiling. Orange and pretty clear with a lasting white head, moderate lacing. Aroma of wheat, sweet malts, orange peel, coriander, lemons, herbs, pepper and light spice. Similar flavor, medium malt sweetness and light hop bitterness. Average body, a little thin, with dull carbonation. This one is probably way past its prime.
