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.

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.
