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.

12 Oz Bottle poured into glass
Look - Very pale and cloudy. Decent foam head fades away somewhat slowly leaving some lacing on glass
Smell - Unlike other Belgian styles, i get more lemon peel aroma then orange although similar because they are both citrus. Coriander and herbs are present. Can also pick up the wheat.
Taste - It is quite herbal and spicy. Coriander is the main flavor but its not overwhelming. The orange peel flavor gives it a nice sweetness and earthiness. The wheat beer is refreshing to me in the summer months. Carbonation is medium-low and drinkability is sky high. Smooth and slightly creamy. Delicious.

Overall, i was expecting this to be a great beer and it was. It may not be the best Belgian all in all and quite expensive but it was worth it. I give it a grade of A-

Poured into a Carlsberg glass. nice 3” of foam. Date stamp on bottle. Nice looking golden color. Quite fragrant with spice and clove flavors. A great summertime beer that you can drink with food.
