Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is fruits and wheat. Sweet fruits flavours with a bit of citrus bitter. Good clean wit beer, well done.

Cerveza tomada hace tiempo de grifo en el kraken. On tap. Trigo belga. Rubio pajizo. Suave, facil de beber, fresca. Bien

I’m usually not fond of wit beers so this rating is pretty excellent from me. Very surprised by this one, I knew the Tripel and Quadrupel were classics and personal choices, but never experienced this one before. I can’t say it reaches the awesomeness of the other ones, but. It definitely was a pleasant drink, with unexpected personality. Similar in taste to the Tripel one, just less nose and lower abv... Pretty nice. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

Pours hazy straw yellow with white frothy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong coriander with lemon citrus and banana. Flavor starts slightly sour and ends up with almost sweet wheat flavor. Finish is spicy pepper. Body is light, slick, refreshing with lively carbonation. Tasty and refreshing.

Classy wit. Bit more carbonated than standard, but nice fruitiness and subtle wheat character prevails. Some not too pushy coriander and ultralight clove, some orange. Moderate sweetness with moderate bitterness in finish. Lovely, but nothing too fancy

330ml bottle pours pale tangerine with a fine foamy off-white head. Very subtle earthy aromas of wheat flour a little spice. Flavours of wheat, citrus, honey, floral characters and spices. Slight dusty grassy undertones. A perfect balance of sweet and savoury characters with plenty of depth.

This truly is the best wit beer I have had. The only thing lacking is the nose... what nose? exactly. Nice frothy head that fades to a nice head. Taste is sweetness and light coriander. No lemon. Chewy and floral. Thick on mouth amazing for abv. Sweet. Expensive but worth it.

Sweet peachy aromas as well as zesty lemony notes. Light yellow murky colour. Nice mellow taste with slight bitter aftertaste.

Gekocht bij Dranken Maes in Dendermonde op 10-10-2016. En geproefd op 24-12-2016. St. Bernardus Wit heeft een strogele kleur en ziet er wat wazig uit. Bij het uitschenken produceert het een normale hoeveelheid wit schuim in een gelijkmatige laag die zeer vlug neerslaat, het bieroppervlak wordt vlug helemaal vrij van schuim. Ook zwak wandklevend. Toch een middelmatige pareling te zien met middelmatig grootte belletjes. St. Bernardus Wit heeft een licht zurig aroma, ook fruitig met groene appel, citrus en perzik. Er is ook veel koriander in waar te nemen. De smaak is zoetig en licht zurig, de citrus en de koriander komen er ook in weer. In de mond is St. Bernardus Wit slechts medium volmondig, is hij niet droog maar geeft het koolzuurgas een te overheersende prikkeling, St. Bernardus Wit is wel volmondig van textuur, een eerder complex biertje. De nasmaak vloeit bijna niet uit is zoetig en heeft een zeer lichte zure toets, ook een wat lichte kruidige afdronk. Goed maar wat te prikkelend en geen volle smaak, wat een verschil met hun St-Bernardus Tokio.

Aroma is fresh and has citrus, banana, tropical fruit and some alcohol. Color is like bright and cloudy apple juice and there’s a good amount of carbonation/foam (also when pouring). Taste starts with a slightly sour apple cider like taste with a refreshing, dense carbonation and some citrus notes. Very fresh. There are also light wheat beer and ale undernotes that add some depth or body, but which are not overpowering. Palate is slightly oily, but not too much and the beer has a really fine, nice carbonated feel. I really like the apple cider taste in this since this sort of combines the sensations of drinking beer and drinking apple cider. It even has a sparkling wine or champagne feel to it. The inspiration from Hoegaarden can be sensed in this beer. An excellent beer from St, Bernardus again.
