UPDATED: JAN 25, 2006 Actually, a pretty good take on this beer type. Not Celis, but I’d still buy it again. OK, I’ve grown since I first had this. The beer is OK, but definitely not as good as I previously rated it. 12oz. bottle: This one pours a typical wit color. It is a cloudy golden color with a little bit of a white head. I also noted some sediment on the bottom of the bottle. When did this become bottle conditioned? The aroma is a bit more malty than I would like. The wheat is in there, but it is not as prevalent as the norm with this style. Also, the typical corriander and orange are hard to pick out. The wheat is there in the taste, but as the aroma, it is too subdued. Too much malt body to it. Fair.

Decent, an incredibly berryish flavor that gets pretty grody after more than one. I remember I found that out after drinking a six pack of these alone on the night of the homecoming dance.

This was my first experience with the Belgian white style. I still think it's a decent beer, but there are better examples of the style available. Nice, smooth, and fairly sweet. A beer that's very popular with the ladies in my experience. Good for a change, and relatively cheap.

Belgian Wits are typically light but this one is a bit too laid back. Cloudy appearance as expected with a fairly durable white head. Not much in the way of flavor however. Can't pick up on any spices such as coriander or bitter orange peel as would be expected. Refreshing, but a bit too reserved.

Terrible, terrible aftertaste, almost skunky. Yech!........................

Weak on aroma and flavor. Was that beer I just drank? Cloudy appearance is true to style, but not much else.

One of my early favorites as I started sampling craft brews. Now, it has less character than I used to think.
