I really dig this beer. I’m a novice as it comes to beer but this is my favorite Wheat Ale I have come across.
It pores a extremely hazy but bright gold, with a finger length head that dissipates quickly.
I would almost want to describe this as closer to a pale ale. The only thing setting it apart is the carbonation.
The aroma is very mild with hints of spices and wheat and the taste is mild as well, but the carbonation carries it well. It’s a subtle and easy drinking ale.
Will be purchasing again!

Decent beer that seem to be mimicking a hefeweizen. I can only recommend this if you can't get a hold of an authentic German hefeweizen. Cheers! C (75-79) score range

Well crafted Belgian Witbier. Extremely florescent looking with a very bright, neon gold glow.

This is a very pale hazy beer, almost lemony in color with a thin white head. I has a nice beery aroma, not very strong. Mouth feel - carbonation. It tastes okay, but not outstanding. It's quite drinkable but I've had better Belgian whites.

I'm not sure I've got the right beer, here. The label on my bottle is similar to the one pictured but is cream colored rather than silver. It says Original Belgian Wheat Beer arched across the top, and Wit - Blanche below the Hoegaarden in the middle of the label
