Not much of a good specimen of the Belgian Wheat style. Kind of bitter/sour and not in a traditional rich, yeasty Belgian kind of way. Disappointing. Not sur why it is otherwise rated so highly other than it might be a bad specimen from Mactoberfest.

Nice golden color, fruity and floral aroma. Flavor is hard to place - fruity but also a bit... musty? Hard to describe it but definitely enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours deep orange/golden/copper, slightly off white head, frothy, medium lacing. Aroma immediately spicey, cloves, cinnamon, hints of bubblegum and banana on the nose, paired with slightly fruity notes (nondescript), slightly tart. Highly carbonated, a lot more banana on the taste than the nose, tartness does not register on the palate - but the bottle is only six months old - some sweetness, quite a bit of wheat protein presence but clarity and Brett doesn’t account for it. . . Very faint caramel present, as with a lollipop character.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Smells sourly of spontanely fermenting yeasts, hints of urine but also with malty sweetness. Tastes like dry white wine, malt, mild pale ales and some cheese. Very complex and well-composed beer - I like it.

Hidden_Pooch (333) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
A better Belgian than Belgium can brew. Pours an unfiltered amber with a small head. Aroma is of grapes, yeast, and basement. Tastes of yeast, plums, candy, apples, and sugar. Has a medium body with tingly carbonation and a light vinous aftertaste. Very well balanced beer.

jdobbs (394) - New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a dark orange,honey color, small head, some lacing. Aroma is Belgian spices, clove, some banana but there’s a feeling of complexity here. Taste is yeasty with a complex spice feeling. A slight bitterness at the end which is awesome and great balance. A very nice brew!

BrewGoblin (347) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Superb Belgian from......Chicago? USA does it best (and worst) when it comes to beer. This Illinois beaut is no exception, glowing opaque copper with a crisp white foam. Smells of white grapes, sweet piss, honey, wheat, yeast, basement, raisins and earthy musk. Exceptionally smooth and tasty. Perhaps best described by a friend new to the style as "everything I like about the idea of wine without any of the bad shit I don’t like". A wee bit of spiciness and berries in the taste as well, very mildly bitter with an enjoyable dry fruity finish. Excellent stuff, this.

slowrunner77 (5805) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 4, 2014
"nice fruit and spice aroma. yeasty, but mellow. a touch of hops mingles with the spiciness and sweet in the flavor. quite good all the way around. well crafted brew. surprisingly, the weak link in a Sophie-Pere Jaques-Matilda tasting."

Bottle 33 cl.
Hazy orange, off-white. Sweet orange or tangerine, yeast, light spices and caramel malt on the nose. Sweet malty taste, with dry finish.

rjplumer (405) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Creamy yeast and coriander type of aroma. Burnt amber opaque color. Thin foam head. Potent at first taste as this brew means business but then softens and welcomes you in. Mild sweetness and has a deep complexity.
