Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance- The beer is served a lightly hazed yellow-amber color with a one finger head of white foam. The head fades rather fast leaving a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell –The aroma is somewhat lighter overall with some notes of a bready and biscuit malt mixed with some spice of coriander and clove. Along with these smells comes a bit of grass and hay as well as a touch of light fruitiness.
Taste – The taste begins with a slightly drier biscuit malt flavor that has a decent hit of hay and grass right from the start. Along with these tastes comes some yeast as well as some spice of coriander and clove. A bit of citrus orange and lemon peel tastes come more toward the end and with a little bit more yeast and spice one is left with a sorta crisp and nicely spiced Belgium taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is light and crisp with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the style the feel is good and makes for a nice easy drinker.
Overall – A rather decent Belgium wit. Flavorful and crisp with a nice easy drinking feel.

This is a beer, an average wit style beer. It's very nice to sip on while watching tv. Very sippable.
Not much of a head on the pour. Has a straw coloring and allows light to come through it well. You can smell the spices in the beer before you take a sip, really good. But the taste isn't as good as how this beer smells.

All in all this is a good and clean beer. I like it as a wit and it does its job.

If you like a wit this is a great refreshing example of the style.

Big, bristling foam that leaves a thin veil in the St. Bernardus globe. This settles down to a very wheat and malty brew. It's almost rich, and definitely more robust than the typical Witbier. Intriguing funky aroma with a whiff of fermenting cider.

Very spritzy on the tongue but mellow and even fruity. Overall, this tastes more like a light Saison, with the big fruity and yeasty flavor. The spice is not so noticeable, though it's the same orange-coriander combo of the style. Some Hefeweizen estery notes and a dry, yeasty finish. Tremendously drinkable and more complex than I expected at first sip.

It cost ten bucks for the 750 ml bottle, which is silly for a Wit, but then it's imported from Texas. Purchased at Liticker's Liquors in San Diego, and I'm sure their Adelbert's beers have been on the shelf for months if not a couple years, but this one has survived in very good form.

Poured into a Stone flute. Big pop when pulling the cork, but no gushing. Pours a light straw amber with golden notes and a three finger, large bubble head that still had good retention and thick lacing. Aroma of coriander, mild caramel malt, apple juice, saison style yeast. Flavor is coriander, bready malt with a hint of caramel, saison yeast, mild wheat, light orange and lemon citrus; finishes semi-dry with citrus peel, clove and coriander bitterness. Light bodied with peppery, active carbonation, nice mouth feel. A spicy wit that has characteristics of a wit, tripel and saison; wit malt and wheat, tripel intensity of spicing and a dry, saison yeast flavor. I thought it worked quite well; more intense than a typical wit, but with interesting yeast and spicing. Perhaps a bit overspiced for the ABV (a tripel would have had more intensity of other flavors to counter the spicing), but overall reasonably balanced and flavorful. I stumbled on this year old bottle on a trip and don't expect to see it again, but I'd like to try other ales from this brewery. I wouldn't be surprised if I scored a fresh bottle more highly, but even so, this has held up well with no visible age flaws.
