great witbier and one that really exemplifies the style. This is a heavily spiced beer- the spices are easily the most dominant part of the flavor in this one. It's not bad, but it takes some getting used to. Would recommend.

Pours a light honey and blond color, with little head but good retention that remains as a thin white lace throughout.Look is also hazy. Fruity smell that reminds me of peaches. Taste is malty, spicy, fruity, bready, with a very smooth finish. There is little to no hops bitterness. Feel is light bodied with a medium carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. A very fine wheat beer that I will definitely buy again.

Probably one of the best American Belgian Style beers I have had the pleasure to drink. Went very well with my fish dinner.

Appearance: Clear honey to orange color and pours with a white foam top.
Smell: Banana, fruit, and clean earth.
Taste: Complex with two distinct tastes that I enjoyed. Initially, yeast, mild hops, and fruit. Then a light spice aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Light and carbonated
Drinkability: A very smooth beer with a great complexity. Goes good with salmon. I will definitely add this beer to my rotation list.

Serving type: bottle
