331 mL bottle, chilled and poured into a Duvel tulip, Best before September/2011 date stamped on the back.
Appearance- Pours a cloudy golden yellow colour with a nice two fingers of fluffy white head that quickly dissipates to a small ring around the glass with a little bubbly top as well, leaving below average lacing throughout till finish.
Smell- I’m getting lots of spice coming from the nose on this one, it also has a nice bready malt aroma to it from the wheat, also some notes of citrusy fruits although not overly strong or anything mixed with a mild hint of yeast in there as well, after all it is a wheat beer.
Taste- Very similar to a lot of other wheat beers out there on the market, but I found this one was not overpowering on any of the ingredients and it really had a nice balance to it. Again the nice spice flavours come to the forefront just like in the smells, but it is immediately balanced by that nice wheat flavour, and then the citrusy fruits kick in with another very mild hint of the yeast in there as well.
Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with average carbonation this wheat beer goes down very smooth and crisp, and an overall very refreshing beer although it does finish a little dry.
Overall- Very impressed by this one to be honest, I like wheat beers where that spice flavour is not overpowering and well balanced by all the other aspects that are supposed to be in a quality wheat beer, and this one really delivered on all those aspects. There is a nice spice presence right off the bat but it is quickly balanced by that great bready wheat flavour, hints of citrusy fruits and a perfect amount of yeast in there as well, very easy drinking beer that goes down smooth and crisp. Happy I picked up a few of these because I would definitely drink this one again.
