On tap in Belgium this beer of course reminds you of a typical Belgian Wit. Light yellow with that unfiltered cloudy appearance. Aromas of wheat and definitely orange peel. Similar taste with the only distinguishing feature of this one is it is a little hoppier than most. I like the style but nothing exciting stands out with this brew.

Nice mild wit. Not outstanding, would still be a welcome treat on a hot day. First pour was a fairly clear gold color. Subsequent pours brought up the yeast and the color was more a hazty straw gold. Medium size bubbly white head, a little lacing and average retention.

Aroma is fairly mild, a little spiciness, lot of lemon zest and some Belgian yeast.

The tast had most of the Wit elements..citrus, yeast, spices, but all fairly understated.

Mouthfeel is crisp and light...pretty typical for the style.

Overall a nice beer, very reasonably priced and comes in a can for summer drinking. Worth a try.

Pours a pale straw color with a sizable bright, white head. Visible particulate, including thin wisps, meander through the glass. Mild aroma smells of coriander, mandarin orange, and a dash of hops. The coriander is very prominent in the flavor profile, accompanied by orange and lemon. A small dose of hops sneaks through in the finish amidst a lingering wheat flavor. Perky carbonation combines with the assertive coriander to create a mouthfeel that is almost too crisp, yet slightly watery as well. Thin arms of lacing cling to the glass as the beer recedes.

Overall, this is a respectable, no-thrills witbier. The essentials are there, but they're a little out of balance, and the body is lacking. Probably would go better with a warm summer's day than an unseasonably cool spring evening.
