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.

12 Ounce brown bottle poured into a mug

Appearance: Slightly hazy light yellow color with little lacing

Smell: Slight corn sweetness smell with a little hint of fruits

Taste: Very mild flavor of sweetness and a little bit of fruitiness. It is not an extremely complex brew but what flavor it has is pretty good and refreshing.

this beer pours out lookin like others of it's kind. hazy yellow body with half finger of off white head that fades rather quickly. smell is weak, some wheat and spice. taste is rather weak also. more of the spice and wheat. mouthfeel is thin and watery, decent carbonation. real weak beer, real disappointment. just go with hoegarden if you want to know what this beer is suppose to taste like.
