Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a light to medium golden amber. Healthy three finger white head with good retention and massive lacing. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt and surprisingly, coriander or clove (the bottle says it is unspiced). Spicy. Flavor follows, quite sweet malt, wheat, Belgian yeast. Finishes with slight hops and sweet wheat. Nice flavors, and fits the expectations of a fine Belgian meeting a fine witbier. Flavor is slightly attenuated, probably due to the lower ABV than a typical Belgian ale. Medium bodied with some creaminess. A very interesting take on a wheat beer and hopefully this will be brewed again in the future.

A: Pours a medium straw yellow to pale golden yellow in color. The beer has a finger tall dense and creamy off-white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a very thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of wheat with some light notes of candi sugar adding sweetness. There is a lighter amount of lemon citrus along with the aromas of banana and clove.

T: Sweeter than I expected and sweeter than a lot of other beers in the stye, likely from the introduction of the candi sugar. Moderate flavors of wheat with light notes of banana, clove, and lemon citrus.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Very smooth.

O: Refreshing and I can see how the slightly sweeter version of this style would be very enjoyable in a hot Tokyo summer afternoon. Glad I got the opportunity to try this limited edition version of the beer.

Pours a straw color with a nice glow to it and a moderate pure white head. Notes of hay with a whiff of bubblegum in the nose, with a touch of clove on the finish. The taste is similar- hay, some cereal grain, some bubblegum, a modicum of spice, and an additional touch of fruit. An interesting take on the style, and there is definitely a house taste of St. Bernardus here. Quite enjoyable.

4.2/5  rDev +3.4%

A: Pours a pretty golden color, slightly hazy with a foamy white head on top made up of lots of very fine bubbles. Great head retention lasting for the entire time it took to drink the beer. Pretty lacing streaking down the glass.

S: Light wheat and citrus, a bit of orange and orange zest. Underneath the citrus is some nice Belgian yeast and spice, a little bit of clove.

T: Lots of bright citrus upfront, more orange, similar to the aroma, as well as a bit of lemon zest. A great level of spice on the flavor profile, some clove, coriander, and a bit f white pepper.

M: Light to medium bodied with high carbonation, giving it a really nice mouthfeel. Easy drinking.

O: Surprise, a great beer from St. Bernardus!
