Pours a foggy straw with two fingers of white foam. Head retention is good. Aroma yeast, herbal, spicey, dry hops with pilsner, wheaty, bready, toasty malts. Big aroma. Flavor profile is orange, yeast esters, clove, and wheaty, bready, toasty malts. Classically Belgian, clean wheat. Mouth feel is medium-thick, with a fuzzy, velvety, lightly grainy texture. Overall, a good, solid wheaty Belgian beer. It drinks smooth, with a lingering presence from the yeast.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

Look: Extremely pale and hazy yellow, almost like lemonade. Huge white head, easily 3 fingers even after having some foam scraped off to fill the glass.

Smell: Gentle citrus, bitterness that comes across as bitter orange more than hops. Light wheat malt.

Taste: Mild bitter orange and wheat. A sweet biscuit aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, mild carbonation.

Overall: Very quaffable and subtle.

Pours a slightly cloudy medium yellow with a well retained one inch white head that leaves good lacing. Smells and tastes of orange, wheat, yeast, cloves, lemon, spices and a slightly earthy quality. Light bodied (in a good way), moderate carbonation, smooth mouth feel. Overall an excellent example of the style and extremely drinkable.

Aside from the pleasant yet simple bottle design , this beer holds a place in Valhallah. This is the nectar of the gods. Never have I felt satisfied enough with a beer to rate it over a 3/5. This however , has changed my tastebud’s hopes. The balance of citrus and spices is masterful. I would recommend this beer blindly to any human with hopes of ever satisfying their beer cravings. I could imagine enjoying this beer while summiting a mountain, sunbathing in Boyton Beach, clubbing in downtown Miami, or grilling punta tracera after my 5 year old’s 3-0 win over his rec team’s rivalry game.
