Notes/Commercial Description:
Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

4.53/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a tulip glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle.

A - An excellent straw yellow with slight orange tint. A good amount of fluffy resilient head leaving lots of lacing.

S - bready, citrusy, spicy. In a word, lovely.

T - Slight bitterness but otherwise A nice light yet flavorful wit. lemon and orange come at you first, leaving you to take in the backing notes of spice and yeast. Very balanced. a slight hit of hops, but not enough to overpower the other flavorings.

M - Soft yet effervescent carbonation and a light mouthfeel make this one very easy on the palate, but it is slightly watery.

D - Great for having more than one, especially with its modest ABV. But this isn't one you want to disrespect by not savoring it.

overall - Just a hair below Troublette and above Ommegang Witte and Hoegaarden in my top Witbier list. I will definitely keep an eye out for this one in the future. A delectable brew.

09/19/11 At Rattle n Hum, NYC. Hoped this would live up to the hype. The claim that it is a 'bucket list' brew

Since Real Beer drinkers will live forever, there ain't no bucket list', but to consider oneself a real beer drinker, make sure you try this before you pay your last tab.

Worth more than these words.
