Poured in to a Hefe glass...beer was slightly hazy with a huge thick white head.
Smelled of lemon with a hint of Belgian Spiciness.
Taste was watery and light. Extremely faint orange reminded me of bighting into an under-ripe Clementine ( is there anything more disappointing?)
Did have the pleasant body and spritzy carbonation of a Hefe
Over all, I'm super disappointed! The beer looked amazing in the glass but failed to live up to those expectations! Would recommend as a small step up for
a light beer

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a whiteish/golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is musty, wheat, a bit of spice. Taste is spices, some citrus and wheat, very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall would probably be more enjoyable on a hot summer day, but a solid beer.

Poured into a trusty pint glass. A nice clean crisp light color with small head. You can taste the orange peel and peppercorn. Taste is about average at best. A mouthful starting taste that dwindeles as the more you drink. Overall a decent average white beer nothing spectacular but worth trying at least once

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. A pale yellow with a nice white foam that lasted a good while and left some lacing behind.

The smell was a bit earthy and muted. I could really pick out much.

This beer had a pleasant Wheatstone. I was a bit disappointed because the citrus and pepper did not stand out to me. There was definitely a hint of grassy taste and some banana bread as well

Overall this was a nice witbier, but I was disappointed that I didn't get much citrus/orange. I love the idea of this beer, but the flavored weren't very pronounced. Even still, a refreshing wheat.
