Medium yellow in colour with a slight amount of haze. Very yeasty aromas along with notes of sweet orange and black pepper. The flavor is very much on the sweet/fruity end of the wit beer spectrum, with a clove and yeasty hefe undercurrent. The blending of the two styles doesnÂ’t quite work, as the similar phenolic aspects of the two styles become a bit overpowering on the finish. A nice try though, and still very drinkanble.

A - Pours a cloudy straw color with two fingers of quickly dissipating head.

S - Aromas of coriander and a small amount of citrus.

T - Tastes of wheat, some faint citrus hops and spices, mostly coriander. Flavors balance well. They aren't too exciting, but not bad.

M - Pretty light mouthfeel, but I guess appropriate for the style.

O - A pretty easy drinking, if not particularly interesting, wheat.
