This is the greatest with food beer i have ever had. Paired with just about anything it is pretty amazing. It is probably the most solid all around beer i have ever had. Not the greatest but very very good.

This was a excellent Belgian beer with strong wheat flavor and a touch of orange. Medium golden color accompanied with mild flavor and bubbles. I would recommend drinking this by itself or with a pairing of food. I enjoyed the flavor very much!
