12oz bottle, best by 010316
A - foamy white head slowly fades atop a tangerine colored ale
S - earthy, wheat, yeast, spice
T - yeast, orange zest, peppery coriander, wheat, earthy hops
M - lighter body, moderate carbonation, finishes peppery, zesty, and semi-dry
O - pretty average Belgian white. More of a disappointment than anything.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Semi-clear with finer flecks, golden amber, with fine, foamy off white head of medium retention, though completely gone before finished. Smell denotes oranges, orange peel, sweet bread, banana, touch of coriander. Taste strongly favors orange peel, and after that coriander. Pale malts, yes, wheat character somewhat weak, or balanced-out, which is also reflected in mouthfeel. Extremely light and subdued peppercorn in the back, but otherwise a fairly clean finish. Nothing is so strong or interesting to make me seek this beer out again, although I certainly wouldn't scoff and one offered. Medium-bodied, watery, higher level of prickly but variable carbonation, almost spritzy, crisp, but should be smoother I think. Still good, though.
