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.

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.
