3.1/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Hazy, golden yellow color with one finger of head that fades quickly with little lacing.

Aroma: Wheat malt and some citrus, mostly lemon and orange peel and quite a potent phenolic and dish rag combo note.

Taste: Crisp wheat malt with more body then I was expecting, fading into a kinda-non-descript tart/citrus back end with some soapiness. Finish is lingering and fairly drying.

The Rest: This reminds me more of a German-style Hefewiesen then anything Belgian. It lacks that funkier Belgian yeast characteristic. Regardless, its pretty decent and easy drinking.

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.
