Big 750 ml bottle at Rob and Beki’s in Pace, Florida. Thanks, Rob! Pours cloudy and yellow, almost white in color. Smells of yeast and slightly of tart apple. Tastes tart, lemony and slightly spicey. A very fine example of the style.

Pours a cloudy orange with about a finger of stark white head. Aroma of lemon peel. Interesting taste, very light mouthfeel, almost watery, but ends with a nice taste of orange and banana with a slightly bitter aftertaste. I’m not a big witbier fan, but I am a fan of Bernardus, and they do not disappoint with this.

bottle poured a hazy golden amber in color with tons of yeast at the bottom and producing a thick two finger head of white foam backing off to a thin layer. aroma has sweet yeast, grains, lemon tarts, citrus, and some grass. mouth feel is thin but the texture is interesting, thick and thin at the same time. flavor is wheat and grains put against some sweetness. citrus and lemons make an appearance in a desert like way taking things in another direction with spice and grass. one of the best wits i have tried with many layers of flavors to offer.

(Bottle) Hazy custard color with sudsy foam. Smells yeasty with strong lemon, lemon verbana, and orange as well as more subtle mint and cilantro. Mouthfeel is spritzy, solid, soft, smooth. Flavors start off with pumpkin & yam sweetness, then progress through herbs, perfume, and honeydew before yielding to lemon custard at the end. One of the more complex witbiers.

It pours a cloudy yellow with a orange edge, and struts a fine white foam. Tart fruit greets the nose, orange, spice, and a slight grassy character. In the mouth, it comes cross soft and quite refreshing. First a slight malty sweetness with a mild orange, the medium carbonation playing the tongue. Then it shifts into it’s more tangy spicy notes, leaving the mouth with only a subtle spiciness.

A nice Belgian white ale, but this style is not my perference. The taste is fruity and light. The palate was good, but the taste is too fruity for me, almost like a cider. Reminds me of a less banana-ie version of Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat.

A very tastey Witbier. The bottlee has been redesigned for this year, and is just marked as St. Bernardus Wit. Aroma is lightly sweet with some coriander. Pours with a creamy, white head with excellent retention and good lacing. The body is cloudy and very yellow. Taste is very good, clean, and spicey, but a tad bit too dry for my taste. Very dry mouthfeel but with nice playful carbonation. A very good offering from St. Bernardus.
