A nice straw colored beer with a small white head. Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. Has a great citrus flavor that goes well with the Belgian white style.

Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a very foamy 2-3 finger white head that was full of popping bubbles and faded in about a minute, leaving minimal spotty lacing. I was hoping it would be cloudier looking, but this did pour from a can so that had to be a factor.

Smells of lemon, Pine-Sol, wheat, toasted grains, coriander, cracker and husk; decent smelling at best, this is an aroma for a hot summer night since it's more quaffable than one to inhale and ponder - it's pretty basic.

Tastes of lemon, dry citrus hops, orange peel, pine cone, wheat, toasted grains, spices like pepper and coriander, dry salty cracker, mild funk and husk; the citrus and spices are much stronger than in the nose, followed by a kiss of caramel and then earthy and yeast notes that trail off dry and clean. There are more spices with possibly clove in the mix, and they blend nice with the hops, malt and yeast.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp and almost watery, with a light body, mild fizzy carbonation, and a clean finish that has a blend of spices and malt or yeast. Overall a good summer session brew, but not one meant for a snowy night in January.
