JohnQPublic (387) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Draught @ Ebenezer’s. Pours cloudy pale gold, thin fizzy head. Aroma is lemon zest, crisp wheat and a bit of yeast. Taste is sweet, crisp wheat, a bit of spicy yeast to fill out a very clean beer. Bit of banana on the dry finish. Coriander and lemon zest bitterness is very restrained. Light to moderate carbonation over a medium body.

Bottle. Aroma of delicate coriander and spicing, and very lively citrus and melon notes. Intriguing grassy-herbal notes pop up upon warming. Flavor follows suit, all the flavors are so lively, bouncing into one another, but in a good way, like little bubbles of flavor having a party in my mouth. Moderate carbonation, dry finish, leaves all those fruity notes lingering. Excellent.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Pours hazy grapefruit with bubbly white head. Aromas are of peach, white grape, with some lemon lime citrus. Flavor is sweet and citrusy with some yeasty spice and sweet malt. Nothing breathtaking, but expertly balanced and crafted. Palate is a little on the light side, but crisp and refreshing. Dry finish. I’d take this on a hot summer day over any other beer ever.

RSRIZZO (1984) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Aroma is just a sour scent. Color is a hazy pale yellow. Carbonation is good with a nice loose head. Taste is mild, sour and orange. Stating with a light body it goes down with a crisp yet smooth feel. Finish come on with a sour twang with a little coriander and a hint of orange. Overall I think its a nice brew but not as good as I though it would be.

Headbanger (3986) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2008
750 ml(courtesy of RSRIZZO)-Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sweetness, citrus, and wheat. Taste is of wheat, spices, yeast, and finishes with a dryness. This light bodied brew is decent but I was expecting more. Still a nice wit.

kosko20 (352) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Same as the St. Bernardus Wit??? Nice aroma of pine, small hints of orange and lemon. Looks good, cloudy pale golden with thin white head. Not much flavor, slightly bitter but very refreshing with a smooth finish, slightly dry.

Taste 7/8. Looks: cloudy golden body with a very thick white head. Aroma: Candy sugar, wheat, bananas, citrus. Taste: Light bodied version of the aroma. Nice carbonation, lively taste. Easy to drink. Nice occasional.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 22, 2008
bottle. Hazy yellow pour with a thin fizzy head that clears away quickly but does leave a nice rim. Aromas of some earthy sticky sweet grains, some fruity notes. Flavors of sharp yeast, sweet wheat grains, some chunky sweet muffin notes, and some hints of citrus fruits. Pretty smooth and even on the palate, with a bit of a sticky oily finish. A decent brew, but one of the less impressive offerings from St.Bernardus.

Drake (13488) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2008
11.2 oz bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville. Best by 1/28/10. A very hazy orange-brown pour with a huge head that quickly disappears. Earthy, complex aroma with stone fruit, cinnamon and spice notes. Taste is wheat, yeast, caramel, bread, spice. Full bodied.

33cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, easy to drink, yet complex, cloudy, good head, very good brew, one of the best Belgian White, a topper!
