Notes/Commercial Description:
This traditional Belgian-style wheat ale is brewed with the addition of freshly ground coriander and curacao orange peel. Hops are outshone by the wonderful floral aromas that dominate the nose of this dry and quaffable beer.

A: opaque pale "creamy" yellow
S:intense clove, pineapple, pepper, yeasty dough, mandarin peel. very nice.
T: full, complete and long lasting with a nice dry finish. Complex. fruit cocktail. Blood orange. But the flavour is fleeting... after 5-10 minutes there wasn't much there but dryness.
M: crisp, dry. Medium carbonation.
O: This would be a delicious summer beer! I think it would be perfect with Indian food ...

Appearance. Pours a light straw with some light haze and a thin white bubbly head.

Smell. Belgian spices and white pepper, bready yeast, some dry toasted wheat and dried orange peel.

Taste. Oranges and Belgian spices, some toasty wheat, bready yeast and saltine crackers. Tastes better than expected from the look and smell.

Mouthfeel. Light+ body with medium+, fairly lively, slightly prickly carbonation. Works well.

O verall. Very easy drinking and fairly refreshing. The flavours were better than the smell led on.
