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.

Standard pint. Pours a very light straw color with a 2 finger head of stark white foam. The brew is cloudy, as expected, with a few stray bubbles in the brew, but it is generally calm. The aroma is dominated by coriander spice with a very nice creamy wheat base behind it. There is a more distant orange fruityness, but the spice is the main player here. Taking a sip, it brings what is expected from the flavors: lots of spicy coriander and lighter orange with a creamy wheat character. None of the flavors are too dominant, as they blend well into each other. Mouthfeel is very rich and creamy. It is moderate to thick with a moderate carbonation in there to make it a little lighter. There is just a hint of herbal hop on the finish that just plays lightly at the sides of my tongue after swallowing the brew. This is the first brew I have put on my kegerator, and it really was a good choice, though I should have done a half barrel and not just a sixtel, as this one will not last too long. It is very flavorful and easy to drink. I am happy with it for sure!

3.98/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A: Typical hazy pale yellow color. Nothing notable about 1 finger semi-soapy head. Really poor retention and no signs of lacing, granted it was serve in a pint glass.

S: Banana, clove, graham cracker malts, coriander perfumes, but fruit esters seemed to dominate.

M: Lighter bodied and creamier feel, but still refreshing with a moderately high carbonation level. Dry, crisp, and tart finish is superb.

T: Considerably more complex than the aroma suggests. Banana and cloves, floral hops, scant lemongrass tartness, white pepper and coriander spicing, orange pith gives it a dry and tart character on the finish. Slight metallic, but a definite medicinal character builds as well.

Serving type: on-tap
