Belgian witbier tasting notes 4

St. Bernardus Wit was the last witbier remaining from my recent shopping excursions. Time to hit another specialty store for more.

The most interesting thing about this wit is that it was created with the assistance of Pierre Celis, the man responsible for resurrecting the style some decades back. It is bottle-conditioned, highly carbonated, and pours with an enormous, dense, and long-lasting head. More sour than most, considerably more wheaty, well-balanced, and subtle in its flavorings. It is the anti-Weinhard's. I really liked it but if I were tasting it alongside other witbiers I'm not sure I'd even identify it specifically as a wit.
