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.

this is my go-to beer. Clear, light amber hues, light, inviting bubbles, beautiful and peaked head (pour after pour, every time)

The beer pours a nice white bubbly head that dissipates very quickly. The beer itself is a hazy lemon yellow that you can somewhat see through.

The beer smell is very citrusy with some wheat and spice notes. The citrus notes smell like a little bit of lemon with orange rind. The spice notes consist of coriander. The wheat notes also give it a slightly sweet smell.

The beer taste is similar to the smell. However, the citrus notes are more orange and lemon than orange rind. The coriander and wheat are also much stronger in the taste than the smell and gives it a spicier and sweeter taste.

The beer mouthfeel is very good. The beer leaves a nice lightly dry and refreshed mouth. The body itself is pretty light and very smooth with a bit of carbonation to give it some texture.

Overall, this beer is very good and definitely recommended for others, especially, if you're looking for something light that isn't hoppy. The beer is very refrshing and makes for a good mid-afternoon break.
