Tried this Belgian Wheat on tap and it was Delicious. What a great alternative to Blue Moon. I really feel this is a relaxing sessionable beer. I would suggest this to anyone that is looking to have a mellow relaxing Belgian Wheat. Great unfiltered look, with a slight orange hint, great head, and smooth mellow taste. Overall I am going to purchase for the house.
