citrus, barnyard, skunky, amber, hazy, frothy, lightly bitter, medium body, creamy. Solid, middle-of-the-road for a mass-produced Belgian white.

Bottle @ Pony & Trap, Chew Magna. Basically a subdued Hoegaarden with less prominent spicy and fruity aromas/flavours. Hazy orange pour with a small white head. Many better wits out there to enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"still refreshing on a hot day, but we’re starting to lean towards macrobrew taste here. a lot of the same qualities as better wits, just in smaller doses."

No bad. Good color and thought the taste was refreshing. Good Belgian ale for a summer day. Thought the aroma was right on.

Bottle from whole foods. Appearance is inviting and cool. Aroma is wheat and yeasty. Palate is spicy and bubbly. Taste is a citrus wheat beer. Overall a refreshing beer with lots of flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

eduardovl (871) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml poured in a tulip glass. Enjoyed at Marriott Pleasanton, CA. A: Pours a orange to nutty cloud color forming a medium white aired head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacings S: Smell is sweet a bit weird. You can feel the wheat, the orange zest, the coriander, the yeasts but, there something strange here. Kind of smell of coconut soap or something T: Taste follows the nose, sweet upfront. Wheat, orange zest, coriander, yeasts and a killer unexplainable taste of coconut soap in the end. Very light bitterness (this one, expected :)) M: Light body, creamy texture. Sweet mouth sensation. No bitterness O: Medium drinkability. Not big deal [ BA Review @ 12/28/2010 ]

Can. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma is very citrusy and sweet oranges, very fruity. Taste is crisp, strong of lime and oranges, sweet, baking spices, light bodied. Easy.

Gutes Beispiel dafür, dass auch große Brauereien gute Craft Biere produzieren können. Herrliches Orangen-Aroma. Könnte ich direkt wieder haben.
