12 fl oz can served in a weizen glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a nearly transparent honey yellow color with a soapy white head of 2.5 fingers. Retention is surprisingly good and the head leaves nice lacing as it recedes.

S - Lemongrass, spice (coriander?), honey and spicy wheat. Pleasant but mild.

T - Spice forward. Clove and coriander open to lemon and a nice pale malt and wheat foundation. Loses its flavor towards the finish, which is watery. Disappointing, considering the nose and open.

M - Way too smooth and wet. Needs to be much more crisp.

D - Definitely a good offering, but far from anything special.

Humongous white head over yellow beer that's mostly clear but slightly hazy. Good lacing on the way down. Smells great - spices, coriander I think. The taste is also good, very smooth wheat beer flavor with spices. Easy drinking, a good session beer. The only real problem I have with this beer is the mouthfeel, which is really, really thin and watery. Not as good as Hoegaarden but pretty good.

This thing has a sudsy white head that goes away very fast and the beer is a lovely hazy golden color.
Yeast, coriander, and orange are the main characters in the nose and taste of this play. It seems a little watery which isn't good.
I could see downing a few of these in the summer time for sure after getting tired of Hoegaardens.
