Not bad for an American effort at a Belgian White. Color is pleasingly opaque yellow with a head thatís just a little too disperse. Nose of light coriander and citrus (orange) and quite easy to drink despite the very slight astringency. The flavors are quite interesting, a mellow yeasty breadiness overlayed with a bit of malt and some nice spice and fruit from both esters and orange peel.

I really wasnít into this beer. When I think of a wheat beer usually a hefeweizen comes to mind. This reminded me too much of Hoegarden. It just was not my style.

I liked the unfiltered feel of this beer, nice color, very white fluffy head that lasted. I donít usually enjoy wheat beers but i liked this one. Light orange flavor, (had it with and without orange slice). Good beer for a big brewery!

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2005 on tap with an orange slice at Tracks Bar & Grill / orange juice with some champagne, then it becomes too acidic. yeah, but itís actually decent however plain it is.

On tap with and without the orange slice. Spicy with orange notes. Interesting. I will be exploring this category more to be sure.

On tap at local bar : light golden with average but fake head.Aroma and flavor is of citrus, some hops and wheat. Thin to medium-bodied, this is actually not bad, considering itís made by one of the worst breweries in the world.

I liked this light beer a lot....good taste, even better aftertaste, Good switch up for us at college, kind of a step up from cheap light beers.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Tap: Hazy cloudy yellow med head gone quickly. Light refreshing citrus aroma. Flavor has almost a dry citrus kick to it with almost no aftertaste. Has always been a safe play when nothing else is available at your local.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 Pours a cloudy orange, nice white head. Aroma is bitter orange peel, and the flavor stays pretty dominantly the same, mostly orange peel canít really taste the coriander when on draught but the spices are more evident in the bottled version. So many people diss this beer and obviously itís because itís brewed under coors, personally I can drink the hell out of it all the time, with an orange itís even better.

On draft at Panininís on the OSU campus - skipped the orange wedge. Cloudy, muddy orange colored beer. Thin head and no lace. Refreshing to drink - almost an energy drink - orange citirus notes and a hint of nutmeg?
