3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle poured into a Westmalle glass. Golden wit beer with a good initial but ultimately short lived head. Has to be said its not the most pleasant smelling wheat beer I’ve tried (that said its suggests its different from the norm). This is a pretty decent witbier, but I’d still rather have a Hoegaarden.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a pretty normal wit beer that had a pretty hazy color and not too much taste. There werent any spice notes or anything that made this different than a traditional Belgian white. Enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10
Aroma: The nose is light, malty, some spice, and some banana and lemon
Appearance: The pour is cloudy, yellow color, small white head
Flavor: Taste is medium sweet, some spice, pretty much no bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light, decent feel, a bit tingly on the mouth, smooth enough
A decent beer overall, and a solid example of the style. Nothing overly exciting or interesting going on here, just a solid beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A gentle haze of white and blanched straw fills my glass under a soft white blanket which melts into a border of fluff. No visible carbonation; instead I find gentle bread dough, fresh whipped meringue, lemon cream, and orange zest with a finish flourish of freshly ground cinnamon and white pepper. Yeast is a permanent impression underneath all her nose has to offer which brings me to all that her palate has to offer. Bright then creamy, lemon and orange are up front while bubbles tickle before leading me to soft doughy breads and lemon brightness in the finish. Her spice is very subdued, choosing to view the proceedings from my breath with white pepper and no cinnamon. Her whipped meringue mingles with the doughy breads, and each quaff refreshes just in time for the next. Clean, bright, subtle, soft, soothing, and refreshing, a gentle Wit if I ever did meet one.
Overall, I wouldn’t say the Steenbrugge Wit is the best I have ever tasted, but she is definitely one of the softest. She demands to be paired with succulent scallops and tender white fish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy yellow with a rather large head. Faint citrus aroma. Very lively with a distinct citrus flavour. Thirst-quenching but not very interesting.
