First impression of this beer made me skeptical, most likely caused by the label . It was purchased among two BYO 6-packs from whole foods.Long story short, this clean refreshing light bodied beer is by far the best Belgium white wheat i've enjoyed.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 11/26/2012. Pours very hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big lemon, orange peel, pear, banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, floral, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of malt and yeast esters with spices; and good strength. Taste of lemon, orange peel, pear, banana, coriander, clove, pepper, wheat, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, orange peel, banana, coriander, clove, wheat, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with malt and spices; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, crisp, and very smooth mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent witbier! All around great balance and complexity of flavors; and very smooth to drink. I really enjoyed this one; far exceeded expectations for sure.
