This wasn't my favorite, it wasn't great, but it wasn't too bad.

Bottle poured into weizen; three finger off white head.

Straw golden, hazy colored, yeast turbid....just how I like it.

Smells: like a Belgian white should.

Tastes: Honey, ick!! Coriander, oats, and a hit of citrus

Mouthfeel: a little watery for my liking.

This was an ok beer, I don't think I'd have it again.

Serving type: bottle

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.
