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.

I'm a big fan of Belgian style wheat beers, but this one is just ho-hum. It's not terrible, but it's definitely not remarkable. Taste is grainy with a slight spice/bitterness to it on the backend. Very watery and lightly carbonated. Serviceable as a witbier but not one of the better ones.

I saw an add on youtube about that beer so I wanted to give it a try
The look is a golden beer with an opaque density.
About the smell, I can say that is bad. For me the smell gets a 0.
Now the taste is different than the smell. More on the watery side, but a good taste. I doubt about that this is a Belgium style. Maybe the appearance, but for the taste I will say it's more an American Blonde Style .
Overall he does good expect for the taste. A little bit too watery for me. U really can't feel the 5,2 ABV. If it was around 6 or 6,5 ABV, I would give a higher score.
So would I recommend it ? Sure, it's refreshing and doesn't have a bad taste at all BUT if you are looking for a Belgium style, there is much better. If you are looking for a smelly beer, this one is not for you. If you are looking for a beer that have some guts, this one is not for you either.
