Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Bitterbill on 12-04-2007

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 had this with and without an orange. With the orange, I primarily tasted the orange and very little of the beer itself. It was more like a soda than a beer. Without the orange, and overall, I found the beer less than average. I could taste the citrus and coriander, which gave it an earthy tone, but, unfortunately, it just wasn't all that great.

This is a decent beer for the price but it lacks something I expect in a Belgian White. I think it's lack of yeast flavor.

Well, this isn't a great "craft beer," but it's not as though it's undrinkable....as though all of us didn't grow up on PBR, Milwaukee' Best, Bud Light, etc. So, that said, this is a slightly below average beer, but very below average Belgian/Wheat. With the lemon/fruit smell and taste, leave this to the summer. I wold much rather see this served at a summer party as oppposed to Miller Lite, Coors Light, etc.

A - Light orange/yellow in color and hazy, it almost reminded me of pear juice; it started with a nice white foamy head and not overly thick, but dissipated almost completely; small amount of sediment
S - Crisp lemon and fruit
T - Nothing overpowering, or even dominant in flavor; easy to drink; some lemon, but generally weak if you are looking for big taste
F - moderate carbonation
O - You could easily drink 3-4 of these , can be refreshing if you didn't mind the lack of beer taste; it tastes mass produced, if that makes sense
