When i saw a box of this on the floor unopened at a local liquor store Imperial Beach i knew i had to jump on it before it slipped away. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tall weizen glass. This created a vigorous white foaming and was a glowing whittish yellow with plenty of sediment seen. The smell was mild with minor notes of coriander and yeast but overall very subdued. The same can be said about the flavor and how average it would compare to the style. I guess my assumptions were wrong being that this was the infamous St Bernardus on the label but overall average and worth tasting on another hot scorching day.

Very light, cloudy pale golden color. Small, fizzy white head. Wheat and spice aroma. Crisp and thin mouthfeel. Goes down very easy. Fruity esters and yeasty taste, some spice notes. Good Belgian wheat.

On draft at Sunset Grill in Allston, MA. Pours very pale and cloudy with no head. Rich wheaty aroma. Nice wheat flavour that gets more interesting as it developes. This one started off not very strong, but seems to grow in stature as it goes down. Nice.

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 Full of sparking, yeasty, wheat goodness. Like Hoegararden deluxe!!!In my humble opinion, the best white beer in the world. If you can get it, try it. The debate should fun and damn delicious.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 26, 2007
On tap at Stone. Bright hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Good strong orange, clove, and bready aroma. Crisp citrus taste, mild spiciness, and a bready finish.

after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2007
330. Pours cloudy dark straw colored with a positively towering thick bubbly platinum-blonde head. Plenty of irregular lace down the sides of the glass as the beasty-big head settles. Huge lemony nose, very little wheat sour there. Watery and extremely neutral flavors on the mid palate and the finish...starts out beautifully and then goes nowhere.

Habanero (4668) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2007
Bottle: Pours hazy and pale yellow with an off-white, mostly dimnishing head. Nose of banana, yeast and fruit. Flavour of wheat, citrus fruit and coreander. Smooth and light bodied. Slightly bitter finish. Enjoyable.

[Sampled in 2005 at Carlsens.] One of the best witbiers ever. Has some more ingredients than Hoegaarden, ex. yeast palate is more powerfull and the mess of different spices as coriander and oranges is nice. Complex and "abbey"!!
