Admittedly, the fine folks at the brewery argue that the influence behind this Belgian-style wheat ale is as much American pale wheat as it is Belgium, but the light flavor profile reveals distinct Belgainesque character, charm, and drinkability.

Bright yellow and moderately carbonated, the beer casts a milky appearance and allows the beer to look whiter in color. The milder than usual carbonation releases a dainty white head that caps the beer loosely and laces lightly as well.

Aromas of musty wheat with mild tartness pulls just ahead of the perfumy yeast character of coriander spice, clove, and a tickle of white pepper. Fruit esters of orange zest, mild lemon, apples, and papaya weave into the semi-malty sweet scent and balances the spice well.

Light flavors of malted wheat bread, pilsner floral sweetness, and light raw grain provide the foundation of flavor. Light layers of citrus fruit and soft spice layer on the malt and grain with notes of lemon, orange, apple, and almost-banana. The soft spice turns light herbally bitter to finish; taking the shape of lemongrass, mint, and vanilla.

Light in body, the beer's grain and malt blend continues its consistency as the mid palate brings mild acidity, light mineral taste, and slight grain derived astringency. Minty warmth and fleeting malt textures allow for a clean and refreshing mouthfeel.

Though the beer carries more Belgian witbier attitude than pale American wheat, the beer is a fine complement to the heat of summer as it quenches the thirst as well as any.
