Truly a witbier in color. Not big on the taste. More like a cider than a beer. Suppose it'd be refreshing to some.

Definite apple flavor. Nice beer for a low abv or fruit beer. Taste is good.

Corsendonk Apple White is light, refreshing, and a great beer to drink on a hot summer day. Its very smooth/clean on the palette and the apple flavor doesn't taste synthetic by any means. Keep in mind this beer is MUCH, much better on tap than from the bottle. So, If you happen to come across this beer on tap and want to switch it up, don't think twice - jump on it! You'll be thankful you did.

This stuff is quite lovely in the tall Maredsous glass with a big pile of foam on the bubbly pale golden brew. The smell is musty and cidery. Mouthfeel is quite spritzy and soda-like.

The first sip is like the last-- sweet and fruity. The apple flavor is quite good. It reminds me of the Mexican sidra, only sweeter. This doesn't really taste much like cider since it lacks the bitterish edge or even the acidic tang that is more appealing. I fail to detect any beer qualities except for the handsome, persistent white foam.

I don't quite know what to make of this. If you call it a fizzy apple drink with a light touch of alcohol, it's quite good. If this is supposed to be some kind of beer, much less a Witbier, it's hard to make the case. Whatever this is, it's quite a tasty but sweet soda-like brew. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Ibis Market in San Diego.

750 ml was poured into a wine glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a two finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy golden straw yellow with good clarity and lots of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Apple, vanilla, bready malts.

Taste: Light apple, vanilla, bready,

Mouthfeel: A little dry, medium to high carbonation, crisp, refreshing, chewy, and light bodied.

Overall: I like where this beer is going for a witbier, it this falls short with no spices or citrus qualities.
