3.28/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow, with lots of fat, slow rising bubbles and some modest suspended sediment. The head is small, white, and rather dense, and retains well. The lacing is thick and glass-coating.

Aroma: Wheat, citrus, and coriander dominate the aroma, with coriander winning out over the citric notes. There is a mildly sweet character as well.

Taste: Opens with a fairly strong flavor of bread-like wheat malt, and a little earthy bitterness. Citrus rind and coriander soon increase in prominence. A slight clove presence appears as well. Finishes with wheat malt, and a moderate earthy bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, with just a hint of carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: A very decent example of the style.

Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Serving type: bottle

3.64/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: hazy, straw colored with 1 finger head that dissipated quickly leaving a ring of off-white bubbles, medium carbonation and minimal lacing.

SMELL: citrus, flowers, bread and spice.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, sweet citrus, some spice, bread, very understated, very little hop profile, not much going on here.

PALATE: lighter body and medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is a good beer but nothing special, there are better Belgian White Ales out there so I would probably not buy this one again.

Serving type: bottle
