Never had this beer before so to see it for 4 dollars a bomber secured my purchase.

A - Head isn't as exceptional as I expected but this is from a light pour so it fades to nothing. Color is a bright hazy yellow similar to pineapple juice.
S - Peppery coriander, with tangy yeasts and orange peels and just a hint of anise.
T - Kind of flat really orange peel is there but provides no zest. Coriander is spicy but really mild and anise is there which is thankfully minimal. Overall boring
M - Bubbly making this 4.5% beer a chore to finish.

Overall nothing I will run out and get again at least it was cheap. Taste like the Belgium version of Blue moon with less orange flavor...

Enjoyed this beer with my cousin Tim in Eugene, he bought it for $1 per bottle wholesale, I got to split the final bottle of 2 cases that he bought. It was a lovely session-y Belgian, perfect for a hot sunny day!

Looks true to style. Smells of a yeast that knows how to work the wheat and give fruit aromas. Tastes about the same, possibly with the coriander getting stronger in the finish. A delight on a hot summer evening with fresh foods and lots of herbs and fruits to complement the beer.

Reviewed in Roger Protz' " 300 Beers To Try Before You Die!"
Reviewed also in "Michael Jackson's Great Beers of Belgium" and MJ judged it "Appetizingly herbal, spicy (coriander dominant) and dry, especially in the finish."
I couldn't have said it better myself.
