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.

11.2oz bottle with a date on the back. Uniquely shaped glass with some etching on the neck. Kinda cool

Wheat, barley and hops are all nicely balanced with the yeast. Not much coriander or orange peel like the label states, but for me that's a good thing

Cloudy beer that drinks good. Not a favorite, but a standard

From notes 5/26/13: Pours a glowing and cloudy pale straw producing 1.5 fingers of white, short-lived, finely foamed head that lave a thin wash and motes of lace. Aroma is composed of spice, yeast and wheat notes of fruit, clove and coriander with hints of lemon and faint grassy hops and a little phenolic mustiness. Taste is wheat, bready malt, coriander, lemon and some orange with spice, pepper and a hint of mixed hoppiness in the finish. Mouthfeel is moderate to heavy bodied with a silkiness that is disrupted by a high level of spicy carbonation.
