Clearer than I expected. Light orange color, some head.

Strong wheaty smell. Slightly sweet and inviting. It makes me want to drink it which, i believe, is the idea.

Sweetness from the first sip, but not overpowering. Tastes wheaty with some sourness in the finish. It's good.

Full-bodied and foamy to creamy. Excellent mouthfeel for this style.

Very good beer and a nice alternative to the usual Belgian style whites.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub with the brewer Tim Butler. The Aphrodiasac gruit ale with a big dose of yeast, that now overpowers it in smell, in taste,and also bulks up the mouthfeel. Unfiltered, more head on a light brown body. This is the more popular version, but it is way too yeasty for me, and the sourness has all but disapeared.

Had a couple pints at DBA in Brooklyn. The hazy, pale yellow beer was crisp and very drinkable on the hot summer. The wheat was soft and subtle, like a good wit, but the spicing was bigger and crisp, giving the beer an American edge. So yeah, it's a departure from a Hoegaarden or Allagash White, but it's a tasty beer worth checking out.

A little bit unbalanced. The lavender is way overdone. Great beer for a Snake bite though
