Poured the clear golden brew into my Duvel tulip glass. It produced a nice white head, but it didn't stick around too long.

The smell on this beer was very nice. Bold citrus flavors dominate and are light and bright. At this point, I'm very pumped up about this beer!

Well, in the taste category, it falls short. Yes, I understand it's a light wheat ale. That said, I was underwhelmed by the lack of flavor, very little hops, very little malt, mild citrus. I was drinking this "thirst quenching" beer outside in 90 degree heat while cooking on the grill. The beer seemed to fit the moment perfectly, but just didn't deliver in taste, mouthfeel, or drinkability. I considered not finishing the bottle, but that would certainly be a waste of beer.

BOD 4/9/14. Slightly hazy golden pour with a nice head. Nice lacing and only normal retention. Nose of Belgian yeast, lemon, orange and spice - probably coriander. Light medium body with a somewhat slick texture. Above average carbonation that imparts a nice effervescence on the finish. Laid back flavor profile that is balanced and has a bit of complexity. It begins with tart lemon over orange, progresses to a bit of spice and ends with a light biscuit cracker. The finish is effervescent and leaves you with a light tart bitterness. A bit more flavor intensity and this would be outstanding.
