look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured out of a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Clear Golden Color – little lacing and head

Aroma: Citrus, subtle herbal/spicy scents

Taste: Strong wheat malt flavors to start, with subtle bitter orange throughout. Light hints of coriander to finish. Bit of a dry, bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation but smooth.

Overall: Decent summer wheat beer. Not a very complicated brew, with the base flavors coming from the wheat profile (sweet malt) with more of a bitter orange taste than sweet. This combination makes for a balanced taste and light hints of spice (coriander). Not a bad choice, but not my first choice either. However, the lingering after taste is actually pretty awesome and makes you want more!

12 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip (bottled on 6/6/13)

A: Pours a big 3 finger head.

S: Nice wheaty head that smells almost like a saison.

T: Refreshing. Very wheaty. Just tastes like a wheaty pale ale, which I guess it is from the style, but this is my first one in the style. A bit like a stronger saison. Quite a bit of farmhouse in here.

M: Nice and smooth, with only a bit of crispness.

O: Not bad, but it isn't really my style, but it is much better than regular APAs. I didn't finish it but I could see me finishing it if someone brought it some place. I made beer pancakes with the rest of it and they were delicious.
