. This style is a Belgian wheat beer spiced with coriander and sweet orange peel. An unfiltered golden colored ale with a fruity trappist yeast. A crowd pleaser. Great beer to pick up your spirits after mowing the lawn. Or to get your head working better after a days work in the old cube farm.

Tempting aroma with a darker than expected appearance, changing taste of muted floral notes and a sticky mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Growler. Pours a clear light amber color with almost no head. Nose is rather spicy and slightly sour. Taste is almost a little smokey, which is weird and off-putting. Do not like this one.

Hazy orange. Great lacing. White head vanishes. Coriander is prevalent if not over powering. Nice beer with a bit of kick. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2012
Draught in Raleigh. Pours golden-orange with a small white head. Aroma is wheat malt, coriander, bit of yeast, some sweet fruit notes. Flavor is mainly wheat malt and coriander as well, sort of witbier-ish. Hint of funkiness, though not very saisony really. Nonetheless, enjoyable.

My favorite for the night, fragrant aroma, light clear golden color, no head or lacing, clean and fresh, some alcoholoic notes and grapes

TURDFERGUSON (3930) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Draught at The Pit. Light orange with a small fast fading head. Nose is pretty faint, some grass, yeast, light bready malt. Flavor is similar. Drinkable, but not much of a saison. Very dull and lacking character.

Sucked a few of these back at King’s, Raleigh, while immersed in the molten sounds of the mighty YOB. Cloudy pale gold pour with a very thick head and a pretty lively carbonation. Soft yeasts and bready malts in the nose, with doses of dry hops and spice. Full, smooth mouthfeel with just a bit of playfulness on the palate. Taste is dominated by the same yeasts and malts familiar from their tripel, and really comes across more like a biere de garde. But I thought it was okay overall.

on tap at Aviator Taphouse. 03/04/11. Good aroma, sweet, spice. Grainy, bready, little funk and spice, Lemon, oregano, coriander, banana. Little hazed, golden orange color, good head and lace. Tart sweet flavor, Medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, dry finish. Good, has it’s own signature, wheat gives it an extra boost.
