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.

4.58/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Very honest hazy straw color pour as sediment lofts throughout the glass.

A delicate soft spicy banana scent is most notable, mashed with wheat and a touch of lemon. It has a very earthy feeling to it when held to the nose. Not too sweet and not too spicy, just right.

The most noticeable thing about the taste is that it's not sour or tangy, whereas I think a lot of brews in this category fail. It's full of wheat flavor while not compromising anything else.

On the palate it feels nice and smooth with silky fizzed smack.

I picked this up in a very small beer shop downtown and now I wish I had at least grabbed another. It's a great interpretation of the Belgian wheat style.

4.31/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a hazy light yellow gold with a white head on top. Some small visible carbonation as well as sediment in stasis in the body. Spots of lacing on the sides of the glass.

S: Real nice belgian qualities as soon as you take a sniff. Solid yeast profile along with the orange peel and coriander. Wheat comes through giving it a grain like quality.

T: Balanced mix of malt, yeast and fruit character in this one. Starts off with a pale malty flavor mixed with a slight banana. Mild orange comes in to pay a visit but doesn't overpower. Light hopping adds just a touch of bitterness. Backend lingers with banana like yeast.

M: Light on the tongue despite feeling creamy on the mouthfeel side of things. Crisp and very refreshing finishing that is clean and not muddled.

Overall this is really a perfect example of the style. Very easy drinking beer that retains a complex flavor profile. Top of its class.
