THIS is what beer should always taste like. Smooth, flavorful, but always crisp and refreshing at the finish. Very strong, fruity and citrus flavors up front, mixed with a heavy wheat body. The finish is pure summer hefeweizen. The Belgium people know beer like no other. I am in awe of this simple, yet powerful, brew.

Pours a hazy golden with particulates floating throughout and a large, puffy 2 inch ivory head that slowly dissipates, leaving little lacing.

Mustiness, pear, tangerine, and coriander form the initial aroma. There's lots of belgian yeast character. Lemon, floral hops, and a touch of horse blanket emerge.

Lemon, belgian yeast, and earthiness open the flavor profile, with a fairly beast malt backbone kicking in mid palate, with peppery notes closing out the finish, which is decidedly dry.

Body is moderate, with spritzy carbonation providing a refreshing mouthfeel.

Fruity, earthy, and dry, this is definitely a refreshing beer. It's a bit more earthy and dry than I prefer, but great example of the style.

A - Pours a hazy pale orange colour, thumb of head with solid retention and some nice sporadic lacing.

S - Heavy skunk, fruity citrus, orange rind, hints of spice with pepper, coriander and lemon on the finish.

T - Much like the nose, the heavy skunk unfortunately dominates, the sour citrus comes through alongside some funky yeast, with a lemon iced tea and hints of lemon drops with a peppered finish.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - I had read that there could be infected or skunky batch floating around the LCBO, and unfortunately I think I was subject to this aforementioned group. That being said, a flavourful brew was detectable amidst the skunk. I would give this brew another chance, but unfortunately I know my local LCBO likely won't be privy to another batch.
