COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
On the basis of ancestral recipes, this relatively light blonde, remains faithful to the principles of the monks who populated the old abbey of Belgian. It refreshes intelligently, and will charm the thirst in hot weather.

My thoughts were that this looks like a typical Belgian Style Wit. Cloudy in the bottle and a creamy head to match. I found the typical esters and fruity diacetyl profiles too and just became a bit bored of it all. Not too bad as a refreshing beer but not a great performer either.

Orange/amber, no head. Quite weak aroma from yeast and fruit. Flavor is fruity with some citrus. Some spices and bitterness in the finish.

Choos (595) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2004
Aroma is peppery with pineapple. Appearance is cloudy darker than gold blonde. Fairly large head that didn't last with some lacing. Sweet pineapple flavours that quickly give way to hop bitterness. Fairly thin though medium carbonation which works well.

TheBeerGod (5218) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Pours a clouded dirty blond with a small off white head. Nose is light spice and fruit with a hint of hop bitterness. The taste has some malt sweetness and spice but also has some bitter notes to it. The bitter parts to not carry through to the finish. Creamy, dry finish. Maybe a slight floral note as well. Decent beer!

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2002
Clear gold under an off-white, medium size head - some lace. Light sour fruit, hops and faint popcorn aroma. Medium bitter start, very light almost bland middle and back to a mild bitter for the finish and end.
