A strange tasting brew. Taste like clove and maybe ginger with fruit to boot. Become pretty tolerable after about half a bottle.

pours a hazy gold with little head. some fruit in the nose with a yeasty wheat. sweet malt with more fruit in the flavor. can't quite put my finger on what i'm tasting at the finish. A pretty good belgium wheat.

was rather surprised by this beer after picking up a 6 pack. Let it settle in my home kegerator for 2 days, then cracked one open. None of the things I dislike about regular ales. I liken it to hot-apple cider flavors mixed with a mild ale. very drinkable. I may get a 1/6bbl for my kegerator soon

Draft. Strong banana, some clove. Not as smooth as the better Belgian Whites. Enjoyable, but mid-glass started taking on a less clean finish.

Hazy yellow color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor were that of tomato juice and rotten peaches...absolutely disgusting. Decent bubbly, crisp feel.

Hazy oragne/golden body with a dense, white head. Smells clean with fruity hops, wheat and tapioca. Mouth feel is thin bodied and mild. Taste is blueberry, wheat, slight citrus, yeast, and white peppercorn. Aftertaste is nearly non-existant, just some residual blueberry. Overall, an interesting flavored (blueberry!), readily available beer. Shared a pitcher of this with jgb9348 (see below) from a fresh keg at the Cinema 'N' drafthouse in Arlington, VA.

Hazy orange & gold colour with a 2 centimetre thick white head. Pretty nice looking, though! Smells of pepper, blueberry, yeast and citrus. Tastes of blueberry, wheqat, white pepper and a subtle hoppiness. Some maltiness in the palate with a bunch of spicyness. A fairly strong flavoured wheat with some odd tastes, but very interesting and unique. Good from Coor's as well, because it's probably one of their only few 'quality' beers. Overall a decent wheat...I don't think i'd consider it a white, but it wasn't great and it wasn't horrible. Worth a try, because most likely, it is available to you! I shared a pitcher of this with JonR888710 from draught at the Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse in Arlington, Virginia.

was a refreshing beer.. not the same spice flavor as some other belgian whites, but I enjoyed it.. served with an orange slice, which complimented it well.

Yellow tint and not very cloudy. It also has a quickly diminishing head. The smell is spicy. I taste a little coriander. It is sweet, very smooth, and boring. There is too much of a lager-like aftertaste to me. One thing I'd like to mention though is that it tasted much better warmer and toward the end of the glass.
