COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with divine inspiration and a combination of pale 2-row, raw wheat, and oats, this ale is steeped with a complex blend of spices including coriander, Curacao orange peels, and Kaffir lime leaves. It is hopped with Centennial and Czech Saaz for a citrus flower finish. Beneath the bright white head, the cloudy golden body holds a surprising depth of flavours with pepper, grapefruit, and a vibrant acidity. Serve at 6 C. in a tumbler. Unfiltered. 19 IBUs.

Bouteille 660ml, courtoisie de Blankboy. De couleur dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (citron, léger de bananes) et épicées (coriandre, moyen de clou de girofle), de blé et avec des traces de gomme balloune. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et légèrement croustillante ainsi qu’une texture moyennement crémeuse et aux petites notes aqueuses. Goût de levures fruitées (citron, léger-moyen de bananes) accompagné d’un goût épicé (coirandre, notes de clou de girofle) et de traces de gomme balloune lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de blé légèrement asséchant avec des petites notes de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec des traces de levures épicées (poivre doux). Post-goût moyen, aux notes sèches de blé, avec un goût de levures fruitées (zest d’agrumes, notes de pelures de bananes) et très légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

ilovedarkbeer (2332) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle at bu11zeye’s. Yellow hazy golden wheat color with a small fluffy white head. Nose is hairspray lemon and the bathroom cleaning chemical ’’scrubbing bubbles.’’ Tastes about the same and there might even be a bit of onion. Decent lasting finish and mouthfeel. OK.

Boutip (4850) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Oakbluff: Poured a light yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of light wheat malt notes with some coriander and loads of lime. Taste is a mix between some light wheat with light coriander and orange peel with loads of lime. It almost felt like drinking some kind of lime-flavoured spritzer. Body is a bit light but mot beers from this style have a light body with some good carbonation. I think this beer could have improve with more wheat malt and coriander ad maybe slightly less lime.

(650ml bottle) Pours a thin, creamy white head with a cloudy golden body. Nose of wet cardboard, lemon and grain. Flavour is light, smooth and almost milky sweet wheat finish. Tastes more like a German than a Belgian?
