12 ounce can. There is "canned on" dating on the bottom of the can, but its undecipherable/smudged to sh%t, oh well, they tried...

Pours super typical, wit beer, clouded and dull light tangerine,off white head, that stays a bit, but leaves minimal lace.

Potent nose of coriander, orange and cloves, nice.

Tasty, zesty, assertive and quite enjoyable Florida, USA take on the classic Belgian style. Cigar city knows what they are doing and its been showing in every can that I've been enjoying of this "Cracker" beer. On the palate the themes established by the sniff carry forward. More orange, more coriander and more cloves. Aggressive and peppery hopped up finish seals the deal.

Gotta love quality beer in a can...Well done Cigar city...

Picked up a 6-pack at Triboro Beverage. Another great beer from Cigar City. This beer tastes like it's straight out of Belgium. It's a lot closer to Hoegaarden than Allagash White. The Allagash has a lot of spice and fruit, but Cigar City has a slightly sweet candied wheat with mild vanilla. Basically is a more bready beer, but undeniably a wit. Give it a shot.
