A: A very slight copper color topped with a finger an a half of very bubbly head. Carbonation was easily visible. As the pour progressed small bit of yeast sediment could be observed entering the bottle.

S: Coriander, slight citrus, a little bit of sweet malt.

T: Just like the taste. Coriander is present which is typical in a Belgian wheat. The belgian yeast character is good and provides a nice spiciness. There are some sweet malts but its more in the background of the spicy and yeasty flavors.

M: Good carbonation adds to the mouthfeel and makes the beer quite filling but at the same time nicely refreshing.

O: A fairly decent beer that I was content to drink. Nothing astounding but worth the money.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a cloudy, almost opaque orange-tan color with a frothy, low profile, white head. Aromas of pepper, basil, coriander, and some sweet, tart wine characteristics. Flavors of roasted wheat, citrus highlights, some berry sweetness, and a decent spice blending. Very balanced and mild overall. Interesting brew. The aftertaste is tangy and spicy, which becomes a bit muddled as you progress through the bottle. Quick, clean finish. Not bad.
