look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

a cloudy light yellow pour, half inch of head.
smells like your typical wheat beer - coriander, orange peel, bready yeast tones.
tastes just like it smells with a slight hint of sourness. nothing really special about this one.

light body, high carbonation makes this very refreshing.

it's hard to honestly be impressed by a beer that's taken me so long to actually try. my brother in law left half a 12pk here, so i figured why not! not very unique, and not that different from most witbiers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Cloudy golden color out of the bottle. Good head for a wheat beer.

Subtle smell, but very sweet and citrusy with a hint of spice.

Like the smell, the taste is extremely sweet. Lemon, wheat, very smooth. Finishes with a tiny hint of spice. Very traditional Belgian.

Very good beer, exactly what it is supposed to be as a Belgian wheat. Highly recommend as an easy drinking, lighter beer.

Pours a cloudy straw golden color with a big 2 finger white foam head, great lacing.

Smells of wheat and spice, clove coriander with slight banana, clean.

Tastes of spicey wheat with coriander, slighty metalic on the palet with nice bannana finish. tiny bitter lemon.

Mouth feel full of frothy bubbles.
