Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint: glass. Pours a nice cloudy semi-transparent straw with really no head, but limited lacing. Smells of wheat and orange. Tastes of wheat with a slight orange flavor. Beer is overcarbonated, but very drinkable, with more flavor than most mass produced beers for still having a light body. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with about a finger of fizzy head. Head dissipates rather quickly and leaves minimal lacing.

S - Wheat, coriander, citrus. A little banana.

T - Same as above, with coriander, other spices, and banana becoming stronger. Sweet.

M - Heavy but not overpowering, a little oily, but in a good coats-your-mouth kind of way. Goes down smooth with medium carbonation.

O - Always a treat and never gets old. Of witbiers I've had, it's a little better than Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat and is topped only by Bell's Oberon.

I've really grown fond of wheat beers over the past couple of years, mostly because of Blue Moon, and here's why: pouring a cloudy golden brown, notes of orange and coriander waft off the thick head, mixed among the subtle scent of rising dough and bananas, typical of wheat beers. On the tongue, smooth and creamy, with the banana presence becoming more prominent, and a heavy body that leaves surprisingly quickly, leaving a warm, clean finish.

This beer is perfect on a warm summer day, but refreshing even in these colder months. Food recommendations include Thai food or spicy chicken dishes, and while it's delicious on it's own, I don't recommend it as a session beer, as the flavors tend to mute and weaken if you nurse it too long. Cheers!

One of the "1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die" -- #13 of the ones I've reviewed here.

This beer clearly has its fans -- just take a look at some of the reviews here -- but I don't get it. Pours a dark golden yellow which isn't unappealing by itself, but doesn't seem to suit the style (which is presumably a Belgian Wit, which is presumably lighter.) The head vanishes very quickly. Nose of cooked grain, a little citrus, a little corn/fritos, maybe a touch of spice but that's stretching it -- really not much more than say a Yuengling with some lemon juice in it.

Mouthfeel is odd, rather thick and gummy to my taste. Not much by way of flavor, does have a sharp finish that isn't unpleasant but I can't taste much of anything in the beer itself, certainly nothing I'd normally associate with a Belgian White.

Best described as a Belgian Wit made by a company that never actually tried one -- just read a little bit about them in other books. Like if the Cold War was going on and Romania tried to brew one, based soley on reputation and what they could discover in libraries. It's kiinndda in the style, but it's a really bad stab at it.
