Appearance - Pours a slightly hazy straw with two fingers of bubbly white head.

Smell - orange peel, coriander, Belgian yeast (clove, banana), wheat malts, spicy hops.

Taste - Very flavourful and well-balanced blend of wheat malts, spicy hops, Belgian yeast and traditional orange peel and coriander.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes dry and crisp with the yeast lingering.

Overall - A well executed witbier. This would be perfect on a hot summer Calgary day but I will enjoy this on a mild evening here in Cowtown.

Aroma is wheat, citrus and strong coriander. The flavor is yeast, spices/coriander, wheat, slight heat and a sourish/tart finish.

A - Crystal clear blonde body with foamy white head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Citrus tangerines and grapefruit

T - No real hop bite. Thick sugary citrus flavors saturate with a super subtle roasted malt coming through.

M - Medium body with moderate/high carbonation. Sticky and syrupy.

O - I just don't dig fruity beers. If the clementine was an accent flavor to a really nice pale ale, that I could like. But this beer is one note, just as advertised. For those who enjoy beer like this, it may be great, but just not for me.
