COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditionally cloudy, this Belgian style "White Ale" is brewed with coriander seed and dried orange peel, producing a beer light in body with a refreshing citrus and spicy aroma. Because this ale is unfiltered it is best enjoyed when chilled and poured into a glass.

Pale, slightly hazy yellow, white foamy head, little retention. Aroma is pleasantly yeasty, with clove, banana, and pineapple hints. Taste is slightly tart, a bit if citrus, with hints of yeasty sweetness coming through, and a clean crisp finish. Carbonation is average, body is light, but a tad thick. Nice light sessionable beer.

Aroma is clove, coriander, yeast and banana. Taste is light sweet graininess with a fairly well balanced bitterness with slught clove aftertaste. Pretty crisp and easy drinking but not very complex. Appearance is a cloudy straw body with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

A bit boring overall. clean and crisp on the finish with a light spice blend and a tart citrus ester profile. Pours a bright yellowish hay colour with a thin soapy white head. A bit boring and light overall. Super easy to sip on

BrewGoblin (461) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
The great thing about this particular brew is that itís sexily above average. I could drink a tonne of these. The aroma is redolent of wheat, citrus, papaya, pineapple, mango, cereal and honey. Head? She scoots off like there is no tomorrow and leaves not a trace. Clear and light gold, body quite thin, this sweet slurp could be sessioned heartily at a momentís notice.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours a hazy light amber with no head to speak of. Aroma is of wheat, peach, and tropical hops. Tastes of wheat, honey, peach, and citrus. Has a light body and is almost flat, but has a very refreshing peachy aftertaste. I found this beer to be very peachy, but I like different.

650 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with light head. Aromas of orange zest, coriander, and sourdough. Soft similar flavors, again with something doughy going on. Additional herbal/floral notes.

Pours hazy, pale straw gold and with a fat head of white foam . Some is creamy some is loose and it falls slowly but doe not leave too much lace. Nose is sweet wheat with honey and a nice citrus. Bright lemon peel and some fresh orange. A leafy hop herbal that turns grassy as the beer warms. A bit of cracker that you can smell . Drinks dry and crisp with wheat that appears thin tall and golden to the palate. A sweetness behind it that is light honey. A slight bitterness and a lovely bit of citrus fruit. That fresh orange really takes the drink. Itís puts the lemon to the side which stays only for a mild tartness. Finishes dry and with a light little aftertaste where the herbal kicks up once more. I like it very much. Refreshing, crisp and with a smooth mouthfeel that is creamy and has a soft few bubbles in it.

(can - 12 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Mild aroma of wheat, coriander and some very very subtle orange zest. Dry wheat in the flavor at the start and thatís about it. Lacking the spice or orange that I caught in the aroma.
