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.

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.
