Notes/Commercial Description:
We’ve shaken up traditional tastes by brewing a spiced Belgian-style wheat ale with real orange, lemon and lime peels,and then added a little coriander spice to the mix. This uniquely-crafted and award-winning ale is unfiltered to create a brew that is naturally cloudy with a light golden color and a smooth, refreshing finish.

A step up from the junk stuff,
and a good anytime go to. Refreshing
in the summer and a reminder in the
winter that warmer weather is coming,
without being over light or island
style. Always good, I never have any
guests that complain or refuse one.

Have always been curious about this beer. A lot of people (undeservedly, I might add) give this beer low scores merely because of who makes it. I decided to pick it up at the local Fastmart. Here goes:

A: OK, but somewhat lackluster. Beer pours a cloudy yellow, which is normal for beers of this style. The head was also nice and fluffy, but it quickly dissipated and left no lacing whatsoever (I mean NO lacing). Usually Belgian ales - especially low-density ones - leave a ton of lacing due to protein-synthesizing yeast. Not so with this beer.

S: OK, but somewhat muted. Can detect coriander, spice, white pepper, lemon and orange. However, to my surprise, the smell only lasted for a couple minutes after opening the can! Not as strong as I would've liked, but oh well.

T: Bordering on good-to-OK. Has a nice citrus flavor, and I can detect lots of spices. However, the beer lacks that bready characteristic that's typical of Belgian ales (i.e., the one produced from Belgian yeast). It feels somewhat less robust than it should be. Otherwise, this would be a good brew.

M: Somewhat lackluster given the lack of a bready character. Otherwise OK.

O: An OK representation of the style. Would much rather have an Allagash White, though.
