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.

Draft in a tulip glass

A - Cloudy gold amber in color. Head dissipates somewhat slowly but stops disappearing and leaves a 1/8" head that is retained until the glass is drained. 4/5

S - Some banana but very heavy on cloves (at least more so than most Hefs that I have had). Somewhat malty/bready and a slight pine note. Hint of citrus. 4.25/5

T - Definite clove and some banana. Slight astringency with a slight piney finish. Some orange peel is noticeable as well. 4/5

M - Moderate carbonation that finishes smooth. Somewhat chewy in the beginning. 4/5

O - Nice complexity here. Piney finish was a bit of a surprise since the pine note is different than most Hefs that I have drank. Pine works well with the banana and clove flavors. Throughly enjoyed this beer. 4.25/5
