Tastes like the melding of Budweiser & cinnamon; I've yet to have anything from this brewery thats a sip beyond mediocrity. I'm hoping G-bot can change my opinion.

12 oz can into pint glass.

Hazy yellow orange, maybe a bit more orange than yellow. Very foamy, light head.
Lots of wheat on the nose with some great citrus notes. Light spice notes.
Lots of sweetness from the malts. Lots of wheat/yeast as well.
Light body, very easy to drink.

Belgians aren't really my thing but I thought this was a good example.
