Being bombarded by all the summer beers that showcase wheat, grain and some sort of spice to a dizzying array of ho-humness, its as refreshing to the spirit as it is the palate to sip on the delicate refinement of authentic witbier from Belgium.

Its intentional cloud perfectly scatters its pale straw hues while building a long-lasting mousse on top. Popping with brightness, its highly perfumy scent embarks upon soft orange blossom, honeysuckle, candied lemon and bubblegum delicacy. Its light bready sweetness highlights a sense of candy and grain.

The floral nature of the beer dissipates over the middle and its spicy semblance balances to near perfection. White pepper, coriander, dried citrus and mint all tether through the grain sweetness and creamy breadlike body.

Mild herbal bitterness provides a clean, crisp and evaporative cooling that refreshes the palate as the wheaten body dissolves and allow the lemon-like acidity to prevail. Still plagued by its unweilding cereal grain, the finish is saved by a bready aftertaste and an afterglow of perfume.

12/18/13 On tap. Although this is a very nice beer, it's a bit of a let down on the Belgian front. I would say more floral than herbal, but the bitterness balance is perfect. Medium body, which is probably where my expectations flushed. The aroma has a slight citrus note that manifests vaguely on the tongue. Bottom line is the complexity in the glass demands my admiration. I wish it were 80F outside instead of 28F. Reality sucks. That's why we have beer.

Pours cloudy yellow/gold with thick foamy head and moderate lacing. Lemon/citrus aroma. Very mild coriander. Light tasting with orange peel and slight lemon. Not a very overpowering beer but is refreshing. It is something you can drink a few of on a hot summer day.

St. Feuillien La Blanche. The White. Witbier. 6.3% ABV.

Appearance: Cloudy, bright golden hue; large, pure white head, drifting down, yet looking good.

Aroma: soft, yet spicy. Fruity (lemon and orange). Sweet and lovely.

Taste: The smoothness of wheat, sweet fruit notes, low bitterness. Nothing but easy. Drinks down a dream. Light and frothy, refreshing as you get.

About all I need to say about it. Let's find out what the brewery says: "A summer seasonal Wit beer from the St. Feuillien brewery. La Blanche from St-Feuillien reflects a unique combination of white beer and triple characteristics, thirst-quenching, aroma, high density and bitterness.
The colour is slightly blonde with an opaque, cloudy appearance. Its head is creamy, white and compact. It has a distinctive aroma of wheat beer with a delicate note of orange peel. The body shows a contrasted blend of light bitterness which become more and more intense and the wheat beer thirst-quenching characteristic. This beer has an impressive lingering taste."

Well, there's always another way to put it.

On tap at Bottleworks.

Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of white head, good retention.

Smell is soothing clove and coriander, a bit of straw and a hint of yeast.

Taste is wheaty, barnyard up front, lots and lots and lots of hay. A bit of clove toward the end. The yeast is present, but overpowered by the horsey taste.

Easy drinking, smooth, and light bodied.

Great beer.
