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.

Got this on tap at a Manhattan burger joint.

Poured to a slightly pale opaque orange color with little head--very nice to behold.

Smelled acidic, tangy and citrusy--it's about what I'd expect.

Tasted nice--slightly bitter to start with a smooth finish followed by a hint of sweetness. The citrus (especially orange) flavor comes out, and the bitterness is not overpowering.

For a white, it's unusually creamy and has substantial body, yet it's crisp and doesn't bite back. I'm happy with the mouthfeel.

Overall it's one of the better whites I've had--I'll enjoy this again.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Tasted On: 07-10-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap

Purchased: Received in a trade

Appearance has a hazy, honey-colored beer with a small white head that fades fast and leaves just a little lace behind.

Smells include fruity notes of bananas, coriander spices, and some barnyard yeast aromatics. Very nice nose

The taste is partly dry but also has some sweetness to it from the fruits. Flavors include green grapes, for a white wine taste, plus citrus fruit such as lemons and oranges.

The high carbonation makes for a prickly mouthfeel, with a body somewhere between light and medium. The finish is semi-sweet with green grapes, but also some tartness of lemon.

Overall a very enjoyable beer; it's interesting how the different flavors play out for a sweet and dry aspect at the same time.

Thanks to Treyliff for this one!
