Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick white head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of orange peel, coriander, cloves, some lemon and some wheat.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some oranges, coriander, some cloves, some lemon zest and wheat.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Sweet, spice, and everything nice is given in this very approachable Belgian-style wheat beer. Spiced the the usual suspects, the beer is crisp, perfumy, and distinctive with that wine-like Belgian twang.

The pour brings about a golden body with yellow tinge to its highlights. A delicate and creamy froth floats the beer with a quiet and confident retention. Speckled lace dots the tulip with each swirl. The beer is very inviting to the eye.

Strong perfume emits from the rim with a boquet of coriander, dried Curacao orange peels, and natural yeast honey-suckle notes. The spices wrap around estery notes of apples and lemons for a very delicate but pungent set of aromatics. Mild candied sweetness, grain, straw, and a light butter and yougurt-like twang helps to prop up the spice and fruit.

Light powdered sugar sprinkles upon the tongue in informs the the palate of the supple sweetness of the beer. But like powdered sugar, the sweetness evaporates quickly and leaves the taste of soft wheat breads in its place. Its spicy middle palate is soft with coriander and orange peel but also brings life to the natural lemon tartness, a tinge of buttermilk and apple sulfur notes herein. Other peppery notes a lightly rye-like and earthen just before the beer shows a mild soap taste in finish.

Delicate on the palate, the beer's effortless and creamy weight floats the beer over the tongue and ushers in a highly refreshing finish that's decorated with minty-warm alcohol, light grain, and a playful prickling spice.

I can see any place called paradise offering up an elixir such as this- it captures all of what it means to be a Belgian wheat ale, but doesn't back down from the raw farmhouse essence of the style either.

A: Pours a slightly hazy and glowing straw color with not much of a head at all. Not really what I'm used to in a wit.

S: A sort of musty wheat smell at first, with a hint of lemon peel, coriander, ginger and orange. A definite tartness in there as well.

T: Definitely a strange flavor for a wit. Bready and citrusy upfront with some pale malt, lime, and a backbone of aspirin. Finish brings a touch of wheat and some pound cake. Interesting, but definitely not Dieu du Ciell's best.
