12oz bottle, best by 4/20/2015. Consumed 8/31/2014.

A- Hazy straw yellow body. Cloudy with a big fluffy head with good retention time and bunches of lacing. [3.75]

S- Coriander, wheat, slight tartness and yeast. Nothing too complicated but better than your run of the mill wheat beer. [3.25]

F- Clean, crisp wheat, coriander, lemon, other spices, Belgian yeast. Very easy to drink. Different flavour profile than most other beers I've had lately, which is nice. [3.75]

M- On the thinner side but seems about right. Flavourful, well carbonated with a slight fruity yeast aftertaste. Easy to drink. [3.5]

O- Solid witbier, probably the best mass-marketed one out there. It drinks well, no off-flavours and is executed solidly with the extra spices. Works well for me. [3.75]

Final score: 3.625

Excellent wheat beer. Great aroma with hints of banana and citrus. Easy drinking with delightful after-taste. One of my favorites!

One of my favorite beers. Great flavor of orange peel and coriander. A little pricey, but worth the buy.

I saw a lots of good review about that beer so why not give it a try.
Very nice color. lots of carbonation a very nice look to it.
The smell is like banana or orange but I will say more like banana a little bit of citrus behind.
Very nice easy drinking definitely lots of carbonation.
U can feel the orange and the citrus behind after u taste it. Not bad at all.
If u are in North America is an alternative to all that Budweiser Molson or Coors Light if u are whiling to spend some extra money.
I definitely recommend for Summer or Autumn.
Give it a try if u haven t tried it. U won t be disappointed.
