The beer pours out into a Duvel glass a clear bright yellow with a thick, fluffy 2 1/2" white head that slowly recedes to a thin layer of foam that leaves patches of lacing. Sipping leaves scattered patches of lacing. Eventually the head recedes to an large island of foam, a circle of foam with patches and legs of lacing clinging to the sides of the glass.

The aromas include the wheat, a bit of malt and some light touches of honey.

The flavors include the wheat, some sweetness from the malt, and hints of earthy bitterness from the hops.

The mouthfeel is on the light bodied and slightly crisp from the moderate carbonation. The finish is medium length and begins with the sweetness fading away leaving the grains and dry bitterness to gradually close the show.

Overall while this is not an exceptional beer it is clean, refreshing and easy drinker. It would be particularly good during the summer and at a backyard barbecue. While, I don't intend to seek out another bottle, I certainly could be persuaded to accept another and am glad to have tried it.
