Cloudy golden color out of the bottle. Good head for a wheat beer.

Subtle smell, but very sweet and citrusy with a hint of spice.

Like the smell, the taste is extremely sweet. Lemon, wheat, very smooth. Finishes with a tiny hint of spice. Very traditional Belgian.

Very good beer, exactly what it is supposed to be as a Belgian wheat. Highly recommend as an easy drinking, lighter beer.

Pours a cloudy straw golden color with a big 2 finger white foam head, great lacing.

Smells of wheat and spice, clove coriander with slight banana, clean.

Tastes of spicey wheat with coriander, slighty metalic on the palet with nice bannana finish. tiny bitter lemon.

Mouth feel full of frothy bubbles.
