3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can, consumed on 2-17-15. Sharp, tart, lemony, salty, slightly sour, almost briny, yeasty aroma. Quite nice smell. Orange peel scent. Pours a hazy, cloudy brass or yellowish gold with a moderate amount of off-white head. Light effervescence. Pretty good lacing. Looks good. In the final pour, it’s opaque from cloudiness. Very wheaten, yeasty, milky, dry taste. Tastes more like a hefeweizen than a wit except for the citric tartness. Lemon and a touch of dry spice in the flavor. Slightly mineral. Dry finish and aftertaste. Light to medium body. Fillingly frothy and grainy in the palate. One of the better wheat beers I’ve had. Seems more German than Belgian in influence. Complex and well above average for the style.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear straw color with a thick white head. Aroma is primarily sour with a touch of spice. Medium body, plenty of carbonation, the wheat malt is strong, but there’s a bit of the Orange and coriander coming through. The sour taste persists through the finish. Good beer.

From a can poured in a glass. Flavor is wheatey with intense coriander kick. Definitely an American interpretation. Pretty good, nice clean refreshing finish. Good, but unexceptional white.
