Beer typical of Belgium weizen bier. Slight fruity, banana taste but not overwhelming. Great head and smooth taste served with a wedge of lemon (not orange) in a true tall Weizen bier glass.

Very pale colour, really almost white. A good head that lives long enough.
Aroma is mainly citrus, with coriander and floral notes. Flavour has some acidity, but silky. Taste of citrus, floral notes, coriander, a bit hot.
One of the best anod more refreshing beers, wonderful as an aperitif or just alone in hot days.
