Our interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer. Brewed with a generous portion of wheat and spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel, this beer is fruity, refreshing and slightly cloudy in appearance.

8 ounce pour at Allagash in Portland, Maine - a must!
Hazy pale straw pour with solid finger bubbly white head.
Aroma is a bit fruity and spicy - orange, juicy fruit gum, a touch of clove.
Taste follows with crackery malt, orange, lemon drop, a bit of clove, and a touch peppery - sweet and spicy.
Medium mouthfeel - soft and smooth, nicely carbonated with a crisp finish.

Very excited to have got hold of this, poured from 12fl oz bottle (355ml) aroma is coriander leaf and star anise. Pours much whiter than expected living up to the name, 3 finger white head in a chimay chalice glass. very pale straw hazy colour.
Taste was surprisingly mild, expected to be inundated with banana milkshake and wheaty goodness but went down very easily highly carbonated and light body. It's pleasant but I expected more from how revered this beer is.

12 oz bottle pkgd 12/11/23 into a nonic glass.
L: SRM 1 Pours a white hued yeasty straw pear color with a rocky & fluffy 1/2" bright white head that has excellent retention, fine steady carbo bubbles, very good thick lacing with large rhythmic banding lines and some backside sheeting.
S: Banana, wheat, yeast, light spice, white grape, very distant new leather.
T: Banana, pear, light clove, gentle sweet malts, lemon zest, a touch of powdered sugar, distant apple, wheat, yeast.
F: Gently brisk lightly bodied plush mouthfeel with a semi-juicy middle and a smooth lightly drying finish.
O: This beer drinks like a fluffy cloud with an amazingly soft mouthfeel. Lovely fruity aroma and succulent taste. Very refreshing and similar to Belgian-made beers. I would buy this again. It is outstanding in its style.

Great Belgian White for a domestic and ABV is not high but well restrained.

12 ounce bottle, thanks to Brutaltruth for this! Served in a Teku, the beer pours a slightly hazy pale gold color with about an inch frothy white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like coriander, orange peel, wheat/grainy malt and some bubblegum. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of some banana. No one flavor overpowers the others. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's smooth and has a good amount of soft zippy carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink! Thought this was a good overall brew, definitely worth trying!
