St. Bernardus has never done me wrong, so when I got the chance to try their witbier I had to jump at it.

Pours with a smallish white head and a beautiful bright, hazy, yellow witbier color. The nose is exceedingly warm and inviting -- lots of yeast, some tart citrus, and coriander. The palate first gives off cloves, then impacts the back of the throat with acidic tartness, before moving back to the front of the palate with some sweetish, doughy flavors. The mouthfeel is perfect for a witbier -- there's both a snap of acid and a rounded smoothness to this beer. Very refreshing and highly drinkable.

I'm so impressed with this beer. I like wibiers, and this might be the best I've had. It's a great combo of high, tart notes and earthiness. This stuff is expensive but worth a splurge every now and then.

This brew pours a cloudy pale yellowish-white color. The head is oh good size, and quickly recedes into a cap of lacing a centimeter thick. The aroma is very apparent. Lemons, oranges, corriander and more lemons invade the nose. Everything in the aroma is present in the taste with the addition of a refreshing tanginess. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side omedium bodied with lively carbonations and a smoothness that I don't recall finding in a witbier before. Overall, I consider this to be the best witbier on the market. If only it weren't so darn expensive.
