Quite flavorful for how light it is. Nice peppery / bubblegum notes from the Belgian yeast strain pair well with the citrus and spices. Very complex and balanced. Very impressive.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 28, 2013
On tap at Wrigleyville Brewpub. Pours a slightly hazed golden wheat color with half a finger of white foam. Very faint smell of orange and some floral herbs. Flavor has spice and light malt plus some citrus and fruit. Body is light-medium with high carbonation.

kaser (2541) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Poured from draft at sheffields. Clear orange pour with white lacy head. Usually don't like Belgium beers, but like this one a lot. Very lemony aroma and taste. Sweet. Super easy drinking. Good summer beer

wchesser (1122) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2013
On tap at Frontera in ORD. Hazy straw gold with pretty good head and thick lacing. Belgian yeast nose with nice bright lemon lime hops and some clove. Taste follows and lime and green tea are there if you look for them for sure. This works really well. Great balance and terrific foil to the spice on the chipotle chicken sandwich with rajas.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at Alchemy. Filtered looking yellow-tan. Thin head. Really smooth and balanced. Nice lime dominated citrus depth. The tea shines as well, mellowing the whole affair. Vanilla, honey tones, very sessionable, clean, delicate...but still manages to have some of that spice bomb thing going on. Great palate, OK beer.

northropfrye (2148) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2013
On tap at Frontera Grill. Nice wheaty tone to this, belgian yeast is noticable. There’s a herbal sweetness here. Not bad.

dogfish120love (925) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Pours a cloudy dark orange with a white lacing. Aroma of a wit coriander, orange and other citrus notes, a subtle hint of creamsicle. Sweet, , buy not overwhelmingly so. Devoid of bitterness.

Ostomo517 (73) - Norton Shores, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2013
The vanilla nose jumps forward after giving it a swirl. The star of the show is definately the citra hops and lime zest, there is no beer possible to compliment Rick Bayless’ cooking

Dogbrick (7666) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Sample at the Clybourn brewpub. Hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that burns away steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of zesty orange, biscuit malt and yeast. The finish is mildly spiced with a citrusy aftertaste. Above average overall.
