Pours a clear golden color with a thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are excellent. Strong orange peel and coriander aroma. Pretty much a malty taste. No bitterness from hops. Slightly spicy coriander taste at the end. Okay beer. Somewhat watered down. Would drink if available but wouldn't seek out and would probably drink something else if there was a good beer selection.

It beats some of the Macro Belgian Whites out there (ahem! Shock Top ahem!) but then again that doesn't speak that highly of this brew. Honestly I would drink again but I wouldn't pick it up anywhere.

Not sure what the guy below is talking about it's not a Belgium pale ale but more of a Witbeir. Mixed and matched this at the House of 1,000 beers.

A - Well it looks mildly hazy bright yellow in color with just a 1/4 inch of head that fizzes out rather quickly. Looks Dull.
S - Well it does have a distinct sourness to the nose which smells inviting not too many venture into this just making another bland Hefeweizen. Another smell opens up to more orange and coriander smells.
T - As other said really dull taste. Doesn't really venture too deep in any direction be it sour lemon, coriander spice or even orange peel taste. Heck hardly any sweetness I can't even taste any orange flavor.
M - Light and very fizzy even for the style. Still hangs heavy on the palate.

Overall very light if any Witbier flavors make this a very lackluster take on the style. Avoid.
