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.

Poured this cloudy, golden brew from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint glass, noted a quickly dissipated 1/2 inch head that left a little white on top while I drank this beer, but no lacing to speak of. Very little aromatics, I had trouble getting anything other than the grain in the nose. Tasted clean and crisp, with the wheat front and center, some grassy flavors in the finish.. Very light in the mouth, an easy drinking beer.
All in all, I'd have to say this is a beer made for summer.

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.
