Spending some time in southern Illinois a few years back, I got to sample some of the regional brews, with this baby easily being the most memorable. It is close to the classic witbeer formulation, but with a subtle difference that is hard to describe - more full bodied, perhaps? Whatever it is, it most definitely works. Great citrusy flavor on top of a refined malt. This can be considered to be the American answer to the great Belgian Hoegaarden. And did I mention how cloudy it is? Can't beer a real wheat beer without being cloudy!

As I understand it, this is only a seasonal beer - summer, of course - and boy what a session beer for a hot humid American summer day! I could see being at an all day 4th of July picnic knocking down a six-pack (or two, if not driving!) with no problem. I just wish it were sold outside of Missouri and its bordering states.

pretty neat little belgian ale here. very summer. pours a hazy small headed hay color with a nose of belgian yeast, wheat malt, and citrus. sort of pollenated feeling flavor, yeasty and bright, orange and spice. mouthfeel is nice too, pleanty of bubbles and a moderate mody, this side of medium. cloudy mashy finish lends well to the experience. nice beer, more suited to july than january, but a nice brew
