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

Pours hazed straw yellow with no head - barely a thin wisp of a cover.

The smell is of doughy wheat tang with orange/lemon peel and a hint of coriander.

The taste is of candy sweetness with doughy wheat. Lemony with orange peel and coriander being pretty subtle for style. Some pepper in the rather fizzy/watery finish.

This is a worthy attempt and a rather decent brew, but seems a bit lacking compared to some others in the growing popularity of the style.

Pours a non-threatening light golden colour that is neither completely crisp nor completely cloudy in appearance but leans toward the former, which it kind of shouldn't. Head retention is average and lacing leaves some marking on the glass.

The aroma is a nice blend of orange, lemon and wheat. Simple but direct and effective.

The flavour is a bit more Belgian-like: citrus hits you again (to make the flavour much fruitier than the aroma would lead on) along with the wheat, but some of the Belgian yeast notes come through in each sip here along with a but of a sugar cane flavour in th back of each sip. Mouthfeel is very light bodied, possibly too light bodied as it seems a touch watery.

This is a pretty good shot at the style. A bit cloudier appearance with a heftier head would have been nice, along with some more carbonation in the mouthfeel. That said, those "flaws" really weren't that and just gave this one a bit more of a middle of the road feel than it should have. Worth a try.
