Light brilliant golden lemonade color with a touch of haze. Low white head, slightly sticky. Creamy rich taste of cream and wheat with medium light malt. Smoothe rich and delicate with florals of cherry blossom and finishes flavorful with sweet orange and lemonade notes. Tingly tangy epravescant finish with a bread yeastiness and a very slight touch of warm spice. Yeast notes finish long with little to no sweetness or bittering aftertaste lingering. This is a great example of a belgian style wheat beer. It reminds me of some of my favorites that are so hard to find in North America: Vedett White, Brugs. They them if you can if you like white bark and compare for yourself.

Light, citrusy, hints of pepper and a little too much orange peel.
I'll revisit it on a hot day....might just be missing sunshine.
