12oz bottle drank out of my weizen glass. never heard of this company before. the bottle came in a six pack for $8.99 at the local grocery store.
A- the pour yields a hazy golden colored body with a small bright white head on top. the head has average retention and leaves behind a few small spots of lacing.
S- the smell is very heavy on the clove with a little bit of coriander shining through as well. the malt smell is pretty weak, with a little bit of cereal grain. there is also a touch of yeast. not what i was expecting at all.
T- the taste starts out with more of the cereal grains that i could smell and is quickly followed up by yeast. the taste is also very heavy on the clove with a lesser amount of coriander. some honey like sweetness throughout.
M- the body is on the thin side. the carbonation seems about right.
O- this isnt one of the better examples of the style. i dont think ill be picking this one up again. there are many readily available ones that i like much more out there.

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.
