Trying the Dirty Blonde...that's how I like my blondes!!! Anyway...the beer pours a cloudy yellow with thin white head that is not lacing. The smell includes orange zest and floralness. The taste carries much the same as the smell but has a nice wheat base to it. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall it isnt a bad beer.

I must "down-rate" this beer because it is labeled as a Belgian white, but comes across more like a nut-brown. Very sweet, caramel, roasted malt and nut flavor. I was convinced there was a bottling-line mix-up, but it has the hazy appearance of a wit, although a bit more golden-hued than straw-colored. I struggle to find the orange and coriander amidst the cloying sugariness and roasted grain flavors in this brew. If this were a nut-brown, I'd probably give it good marks.

Poured into a weizen glass. Color was a slightly cloudy golden color with a 2 finger bubbly head. Head quickly started to dissapate, but switched to a thicker foam as it went. Fair amount of carbonation rose from the bottom. Didn't cling at all. Aroma was slightly grainy, but also seemed a bit sour. Flavor came across as a very watery fruity flavor. A hint of banana, but all was on the thin side. Felt overly watery in the mouth. Needed a little more chew, but was nicely carbonated. Overall not terrible, just seemed a little off.

12 ounce can, without freshness/canning date info.

The poor is hazed medium tangerine, fine bubble off white head, leaves some fine lacing on the glass.

Sniff reveals just some faint wheat malts, and a very faint fruitiness.

Slight drying in the finish. Forgettable little brew, would be decent on a very hot summer day with a light lunch. Besides that situation not much chance I would go for this one again
