This Belgian-style wheat beer is light and effervescing, a classic refresher. Unmalted wheat, Belgian yeast strain and the use of corriander and orange peel combine to make a true style whitbier

Aromas of banana, subtle citrus fruits, and floral hops. Hazy straw-colored hue with a mostly lasting, white head. Flavors are light and subtle, somewhat earthy and somewhat fruity, with traces of Belgian yeast. Light and very refreshing.

DiarmaidBHK (4242) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Pours lemon juice colors with no head The lemon mixing with the other ingredients definitely funks things a Up but its a bit funky for the style. Not much on the tongue. Clean finish if not a bit watery. Meh!

Velkyal (320) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours a very pale cloudy yellow, topped with a frothy white head. The nose is dominated by coriander and lemon. Tastewise, a firm biscuity base gives way to a light grassy hoppiness and a long dry finish. Light bodied and refreshing.

Light bodied. Cloudy yellow goldish color. No head and no lacing that I could tell. Banana, some spice and sweet candied sugars. Odd wit, a bit more clean then I would like in one, but okay to drink.
