3/5 rDev -17.6%
Hazy pale yellow with a 3 finger foamy white head, with decent retention and spotty lacing. The aroma has lemon, yeast, coriander, and a small amount of biscuit malt.
The taste has light sweetness and light bitterness. The lemon, coriander, yeast, pepper, and biscuit malt combine to make this a well balanced beer, but all of the flavors are lighter than I expected them to be.
Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Not much aftertaste, and finishes somewhat dry. Basically this is a middle of the road Belgian IPA. Decent, but not memorable.

3.03/5 rDev -16.8%
Poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a cloudy straw/white color with 2 fingers of fluffy white head. Patchy webbed lacing and very low carbonation.
N: Orange zest, clove, coriander, lemon, wheat and some Belgian yeastiness.
T: Lemongrass, wheat and some doughy bread upfront. Mid-palate is full of bread and Belgian yeast. Finishes wheaty with hints of coriander and orange zest.
M: Light bodied, smooth and crisp.
O: The wheat and lemon really dominate the flavor profile. This is a rather simple beer. I'm not very impressed. It seems the "White IPA" is a failed style.
