From the back label: "25/07/19"

Appearance: It has a big fluffy white head with decent retention. The head leaves a lot of lacing. It has a cloudy straw-colored body.

Aroma: There is a light bit of coriander aroma and a touch of what smells like pepper and tobacco leaf.

Taste: The flavor is mostly this creamy tasting wheat and coriander mush. It has a slightly floral character and it is extremely mellow.

Mouthfeel: It is smooth and easy to drink.

Overall: It's an outstanding beer with a pleasant and gentle character. I would absolutely buy this again and I would highly recommend it. It is more on the smooth side of Belgian Witbiers rather than those that trend towards the fruity or tangy. I really enjoyed it.

Thinner, lighter, and less flavor than some other brews. Better options exist.

You will not find a better beer for the price. I want to take this beer to a Holiday Inn and get it pregnant. If you are into Belgium beers, boom!

Excellent brew when fresh and cold easy to drink several sweet wheat aroma and the taste is excellent as well. Spicy on the nose and back of the throat. Love the lacing on my glass. Think I shall have another.

Pleasant experience. Refreshing and mildly interesting for a bottom shelf brew. Nothing out of the ordinary going on. Good year round but would recommend on a hot day.
