    This was a great beer. It pours a cloudy metallic gold color, with a huge frothy white cap which lasts a few minutes and laces well. The aroma is nicely balanced with notes of wheat, coriander, cloves, and light sweet bubble gum and banana notes at the back of the nose. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little creamy. Flavor is sweet wheat and banana followed by a herbal light bitter finish.

    Cloudy yellow pour, fluffy head, minimal lacing. Spicy and lemon aroma. Flavour is the same with citrus fruit. Orange peel becomes more evident towards the end. Just the right amount of sweetness. Medium body and carbonation. Ok for a witbier

    Pours an average amount of foamy white head and a has a hazy orangey golden appearance. Lacing is quite weak. Aromas of yeast, oranges, grains and citrus hops. Flavours are very citrusy, some wheaty notes as well as oranges and hints of lime. A little bit of spice comes through. Lively carbonation. Full bodied mouthfeel. Very good and easy to drink.

    4-pack from the LCBO. Pours a cloudy beige-yellow with a massive white head and some creamy lacing. Nice wheat, orange aromas with notes of citrus and coriander. The taste is pretty mild though with a little Belgian Ale yeast and the spices-orange in the background. I like St. Bernardus and I like Witbier, but this is nothing to crazy. Better than lots, and it changes at every sip. A little lacking in the flavours.

    Opaque light yellow with small white foam head. Aroma is little citrus like, some wheat. Taste is not too outstanding, normal witbier. Aftertaste if fresh, citrus, some orange. (Utrecht 201312)

    Had this one, a bottle chilled in my fridge at home. Poured out into it’s original St. Bernardus goblet. Looks murky, unfiltered, just as a witbier suspects. Aroma is fresh, citrus and fresh hops are present, along with a bit of breadiness. Flavour is sweet with a sour finish that hits the spot. Really good witbier!

    Hmm some polarized reviews here, similair to hoogardeen, not really much of a higher quality. I feel some reviews are biased to high being as this is a less known belgian brewery (for non-beer drinkers) that has alot of hype. The beer is cloudy, more wheat and grass than many wits. Really nicely balanced with a slight floral hop note that brings a liveliness to the mouthfeel. The standard coriander seed/ orange/ lemon with a added touch of green... maybe parsely or radish leaves? Pretty good.

    I had this at Buffalo Wild Wings on Roanoke, VA on 11/11/2010. This beer lives up to the St. Bernardus brand. I am not a huge fan of the wits but this one is quite nice and a low abv. I would have it again. The aroma is lemon and grass and the flavor tracks the aroma nicely. Lacing is decent and head retention is frothy and above average. All around enjoyable beer - well done.

    I may have gotten a bad bottle. But this one was a huge disappointment. A golden yellowish colored beer. Big frothy white head has some hang time.. Settles into a nice lacing. Hugh amount of sedimentation. The aroma is lemony. The body is light And the taste is weak, nearly bland. In that was the disappointment.
