3.35/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottle date of 5/12/12.

Pours a murky yellow with a 1 inch foamy white head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, celery, lettuce, and spices. Definitely some weird aromas going on here. Taste is of grain, yeast, spices, and a very slight vegetal flavor but nothing like the smell. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer flavor wise but the aromas of leafy vegetables are definitely quite odd.

A - Pours a hazy light straw color with two fingers of bright white head. Great retention and nice lacing.

S - Coriander dominates the nose, followed by Belgian yeast.

T - Taste is similar to smell with a slight amount of citrus acidity, wheat and some pepper. Nice.

M - Crisp medium mouthfeel.

O - Overall, this is a very nice, flavorful witbier. Very sessionable.

Celis White has a cloudy body that is somewhere between dull yellow and dull gold. The white head is large and solid looking, with a rocky top. The retention is solid, and ample lacing is left behind.

The aroma has a good bit of wheat to it, with notes of fruit and a hint of pepper. Pretty traditional and quite nice.

This beer is a well-made white. The wheat probably provides the most flavor for this one, with notes of bread and a little bit of twang. Orange and lemon both make an appearance, but without adding any sweetness. Coriander and general peppery flavors are more powerful in the flavor than the aroma. A hint of green apple comes through from the yeast in the finish.

Very smooth from the carbonation, with a substantial feel to the body.

This beer was left behind in my fridge after having some people over, so I didn't really have any expectations for it. I am glad that I tried it, because it turned out to be a well made witbier.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: a very dull yellow hue. very cloudy, as they do. billowy bright white head sits on top.

S: lemon, clove. there is a definite acidic smell here. maybe a little barny. there is an earthy and chalkyness from the yeast.

T: similar to the nose, the acidity comes across the palate in the form of limes and lemons. there is a minor bready, malty backbone, but oh so light. a little bit of ginger.

M: moderate amount of carbonation on one of the lightest bodies ive come across.

D: super light body with a decent amount of flavor certainly makes this drinkable. the tart acidity is a nice touch. from what i understand, one of the classics in witbiers. glad a friend made me pick one up.
