COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
. 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.

Drake (8779) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bomber from Bestway, Greensboro. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a tan fizzy head that instantly fades. Aroma of bready malts, earth, heavy spice, coriander mostly with a bit of pepper. The taste is bready malts, dry fruits, dried fruits, spicy finish. Medium bodied, fairly dry. Solid.

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Orange pour with a huge white head. The aroma has some juicy orange character as well as some coriander. The flavor is similar. I get some pithy orange as well as some coriander and wheat. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Suttree (5225) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2011
Brownish orange, thin ring of foam. Faint aroma - lightly spicy, with subdued herbal notes. A bit sweeter and heavier than I was expecting - notes of citrus and cinnamon, plus some herbal notes. On tap, Flying Saucer, Raleigh.

emacgee (4112) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2011
Growler. Pours soft straw gold with one finger of frothy white head. Nose is muted, notes of spicy hops and moist bread. Lots of diacetyl/butter comes out with warmth. Flavor is no good, way too much of a bite and definitely some buttery notes with hints of corn and grass. Dry bitter palate.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 24, 2011
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.

TURDFERGUSON (3963) - 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.

maxwelldeux (3763) - 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.
