By far the best Belgian White I've had. Not only could you distinctly smell the coriander and orange peel, but it mixed well with the wheat and barely unlike any other. Mouthfeel was smooth and crisp and it had a great citrusy taste that I found very appealing.

I believe the brewer kept it simple with their blend of yeast. It's a soft, hazy, and mild Belgian Wheat Beer.

A little too much spices for me, but better than OB or Cass when in Korea. I know this is not from Korea, but a lot of bars have Hoegaarden for some reason.
