Found this bottle in local liquor store.

I never knew this brewery existed! Color was almost clearish yellow with generous white head. Not as cloudy as I would have liked, but still nice to look at. Bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom. Smell and taste was wheaty as you would expect.

Overall it's definitely not the best example of this style, and way better beers can be had. Low abv, easy to drink. I could see why many people don't like this one, but to me it's "good", not great. I'd buy it again.

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.
