I really do love wheat beers, and this one was a Belgian white. But it wasn't what I was hoping for.

The beer poured out a cloudly, yellowish color, more so than other whites I've tried - it didn't look to appealing to me. As far as a scent or odor - I couldn't smell one - nothing, nada, zip - I almost inhaled the beer trying to smell something from it.

Mouthfeel was worse than what I've experienced from other beers and the taste was just marginally better than other Belgian beers I have tried. I did get to taste the orange flavor and the coriander and all that - but it just didn't impress me.

Overall, I think I'm being a bit generous on the rating - maybe I picked up an old bottle or something. I'll give it another try, but not after I partake of others I enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

pour is a light golden yellow with a tight white head. The nose has a ton of yeasty spice, light pepper, coriander, light lemon. Not quite as dusty and spicy as the nose, a bit more lemony and sweet. Still, strong balance and not sugary. Dry finish and strong carbonation, lightly champagne esq. The strong zest and yeast characteristic seem to slightly mute the overall flavor but still a nice refreshing beer.

[Best served in a Weizen glass]

The pour was a medium golden yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white sudsy head that receded rapidly, down to a layer of thin puddles and a medium collar with some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was of a straw malt and a soapy yeast with notes of citrus (lime), wheat and a bit of coriander.

The taste was lightly sweet and quite yeasty from the beginning with a decent wheat presence, a good dose of citrus and a bit of spice towards the end. The flavor lasted an average time following the swallow with the wheat lime flavor left to linger.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a slight dry yet watery texture and a moderate carbonation.

Overall a tasty Witbier with a nice lime citrus twist...

This is another of tone77's many bottles to keep me busy when not actively engaged in The CANQuest (TM). I am reminded that it has been over four years since TheChauffeur1 and I visited on our month-long journey. Wow, time flies like an arrow while fruit flies like a banana!

From the bottle: "Beer of the Conch Republic"; "Belgian-style ale brewed with spices & Key Lime"; "Head south. You've made it. The Southernmost Point. The Conch Republic. Home of the Sunset. You're as far South as you can go in the Continental USA. Now the sun, the sand and the ocean waves are calling your name. That slower-paced, sun-drenched lifestyle is patiently standing by. And the distinctive all natural flavors of coriander, orange peel and Key lime that grace this white-wheat ale are waiting for you to pop the top off and dive right in."

I greatly agitated this so as to ensure anything that may have floculated would be in suspension. It also meant waiting for it to settle so that it would not explode on me, but now I (and it) am/are ready to go. The pour produced a finger of foamy, bone-white head that simply could not last in the face of today's humidity. Color was a murky orangish-yellow, reminiscent of freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Nose had the spice of the coriander and the citrusiness of the orange and lime as expected. Mouthfeel was medium and I got an unexpected tartness on the tongue as though the fruit was not interacting well or they had just used too much of it. Either way, I know that I have had more refreshing examples of the style. Finish was dry, but kind of bland and boring, without any real snap to it. A once and done, sorry.

Poured in weizen glass, chilled

A: cloudy dark yellow with a one-finger head that melts down into microbubbles--attractive
S: Belgian yeasts (with pear) dominate
T: Decent, benign Belgian wheat; not complex and not flavorful, but still appealing in the pear and apple flavors that exist.

A wheat-beer hater would not know this is a wheat beer--kudos!
