Color- straw gold. Minimal head.

Aroma- wheat, spices including coriander and rose petal.

Taste- A lackluster and disappointing wit beer interpretation. Starts wheaty with spices and orange zest but finishes placid with a lingering staleness.

Poured from 355 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 9/2/2013.

A good beer for summer. Pour was a light yellow with a bit of a haze in it. The smell was mostly citrus and fruit, some banana which I thought was interesting. The taste is primarily that of wheat mixed with hops that have big citrus flavor. It was thin, but with the taste added for a refreshing summer beer. Found in the summer variety pack and was pleasantly surprised by it.
