COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This wonderful wheat is slightly sweet and spicy from the coriander and candied orange peels that are part of this traditional Belgium recipe. Simply delicious served with a slice of lemon.

Appearance: Dispenses a lightly hazed, yellowish straw-hued body with a small-sized, white head. Smell: First, the spicing of coriander is quickly apparent in the nose. Then, in glide some notes of soft wheat and citrus fruits. Taste: Upfront crisp white wheat taste with a light level of sweetness and minor background hint of fresh grain. Orangey citrus character and fruitiness. Plenty of the added coriander spice character, though not quite as forward as hinted at in the nose. Drying on the finish thanks in part to the crackling carbonation. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A decent brew from Charleville that would make for a fine mid-Summertime refresher.

Bottle @ PapsÝ. Tasted blind. Pours clear golden with a small creamy white head and lacings. Nose is sweet and yeasty. Vaguely vinous. Flavor is herbal with some brett and medicine. Very dry and tasty.

In bottle, hazy lt gold, fleeting lacing. Nose smells like a summer wedding, orange and rose petals. Yummy hop and orange flavor, I think this is a very nice summer beer. People who need blasts of flavor will be disappointed, but I like the friendly flavor.

boFNjackson (4143) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle... Poured vibrant, cloudy, pale yellow with a big, white head. NO LEMON! Nose had some strong yeast esters, berries, and earthy grass tones. Lots of carbonation, wheat malts, crackers, berries, yeast esters. Some spice, coriander and citrus. A nice drying finish that was quite quenching.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle from seymour poured into a weizen glass. Pours hazy pale golden with small white head. Thin small bubble lacing, medium body, smooth texture, medium carbonation, and light citrus aroma. Taste is citrus, light spicy yeast, hint of pepper, and some coriander. Pretty good.

ben4321 (4015) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 3/28/12

Aroma: The nose has a lot of wheat malts with a good bit of spice and some yeast
Appearance: It pours a slightly unclear yellow color with a small foam of white head
Flavor: The taste has some mid-plus sweetness, with a little spice, and a later light tartness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it is not watery at all, with a soft carbonation, and a cleanish mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Overall, this one isnít a bad offering at all. Everything didnít work perfectly, but I found it to be plenty good enough, and it had some interesting components as well.

Seymour sent me two beers from St. Genevieve, Iím guessing he had no idea that my daughterís name is Genevieve, sort of awesome.

Pours a hazy golden color with a very small (almost no) head even after an aggressive pour.

The aroma has a really excellent orange and floral expression. The beer smells a bit on the sweet side but itís really pungent and nice smelling none the less.

The flavor is again very orange forward, but itís nicely tart and not overly sweet. There is a good spicy bit with some coriander and light cinnamon.

The mouth feel of the beer is painfully watery and just too under-carbonated, I think this would be a gem of a witbier if they could figure out how to get some bubbles in there.

seymour (1454) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2012
Tasted from 12oz bottle into nucleated pint glass. Appearance, aroma and flavor were all true-to-style Belgian Wit. Mellow wheat mouthfeel, citrus, coriander, faint clove, very fizzy, a little bready, tart, crisp and refreshing. Compared to classic examples, this one was a little less chalky and more acidic, better head retention from the oats. Not much, but a hint of Berliner Weiss sourness. Good stuff. Iíll definitely buy this again.

bottle thanks to tizzlejizzle. gold with a white head that dissipates fast. nose is heavy on the lemon, citrus, faint spices, and wheat. easy on the palate, flavor is dominated by clove/spices, watery, lemon, and a wheaty finish.
