look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

looks like a wheat beer cloudy, straw coloured but tasted sickly sweet. no bitterness just nasty there's light refreshing beers and there's nasty beers this one was nasty.

I know I didn't give it a full review but this is one of the only beers out of hundreds I didn't like.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured out of bottle into a wheat beer glass with a very frothy head containing very small bubbles.

Appearance-very light color as expected for a Belgian Wheat, but i was hoping for something with a little more color.

Smell-traditional wheat type smell, had a slightly sweeter smell than one would expect for a beer but overall satisfying.

Taste-a nice crisp wheat taste to begin with a very smooth middle that was quite satisfying, you get a small, light bit of orange and malt on the end into a very subtle aftertaste.

mouthfeel-tasted a little flat on the carbonation (probably due to the fact that that it was not a chilled glass) overall very full giving off the different types of flavors as it moves through the mouth and throat.

overall-very nice beer, extremely satisfied considering the price (paid about $8.50 for a six-pack)
