Wheat beers are not really my fav style, but I'm trying to find a place for them. These kids are a good start, and are perfect for hot summer weather.
Pours a pasty white fizzy fluffy 1+ finger head fades semi slowly with tons of soapy lacing, fairly hazy golden pilsner like color.
Nose lots of wheat, Belgian sweet malt characters but white malts, wit like spices with faint coriander like, touch of citrus and orange peel light Belgian wit like yeast aromas.
Taste brings more of the same but first some light esters from the yeast, bit of a pear and light apple like, then wit flavours, lots if wheat, light spices with coriander again, faint orange peel and citrus zest, a light bready toasty biscuit like wheat too. Finish is drier but a bit sticky, lingering citrus zest, coriander, and what flavors, nice lingering citrus slightly spicy hop bitterness.
Mouth is med to lighter bod but nice fluffy carb.
Overall nice Belgian wit like beer, pretty typical though but nothing too special. Still a tasty beer made in the USA, a nice Belgian wit. Again, not really my fav style either but hits well in the hot summer heat wave we're in.
