Appearance - This is a shiny straw color with a nice, pure white, lingering head.
Smell - This has a very rich yeasty nose with lots of wheat kind of like a hefe. It also has a lot of white spicing in there like fresh pepper and especially coriander.
Taste - The spices are just as strong at the taste and the yeast is there in force. It picks up some light banana which again reminds me of a weizen.
Mouthfeel - This might be medium-bodied but just barely. The carbonation though is terrific. It's very light and lively on the tongue.
Drinkability - This was quite the drinkable ale. It's on the light side of the style so if you're looking for a heavy-hitter you'll be disappointed, but overall this was a pleasant drink.

Picked up the Brewers' Picks mainly for this, though I like the Titan and get the Collette pretty regularly. Figure I'll just suffer through the three Denver Pale Ales in there (just kidding, actually looking forward to trying those again, as well).
Poured from a bottle into a goblet, light amber, really no head to speak of, just a thin sheen of small bubbles across the top and a modest collar. Totally clarified, light effervescence.
Smells sweet, yeasty, definitely get that Belgian yeast and some spice. Bottle says noticeable hops, but I'm not noticing it as much as they seem to think I should. A little boozy. Flavor follows suit, with more hops, biscuit and malt presence. Definitely sweet, with a nice boozy edge.
Overall, why did they take away the six packs, again? Seriously, this stuff's really good, worth getting the brewers' picks to try it if you haven't. Recommend if you like their Collette and Orabelle.
