Faint fruity aroma, pours golden with a thin white head. Tastes fruity, smooth, mild nutmeg aftertaste, an interesting beer. Try it.

Bottle. A- Baby powder, coriander, orange, spices. A- Golden orange color, slightly hazy liquid, minimal white head. T- Strong notes of coriander and nutmeg, slight orange, wheat. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- Not your usual Belgian Wit. A ton of spices, especially the nutmeg and coriander. I’m not sure how much age was on this bottle, but I don’t think it was too fresh, hence the lack of citrus notes and more of the spices. An odd aroma of baby powder when really wasn’t too bad. Not my favorite Belgian White but a worthwhile beer at the least.

Smells like sour Sapporo. Tastes like oak and vanilla. A little sour. Strange. I'm not sure what style of beer this is trying to be. Unique and weird. Strong nose.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a mug. The appearance was a nice looking hazy/cloudy yellow to orange color with a fairly decent one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. The lacing was there and slid right on into the body. The smell had some decent Belgian styled spices with a light coriander, nutmeg, and orange peel. The taste ends up being somewhat sweet and spicy with a nice lightness running all around. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Overall, not a bad witbier, its just a tad above average to me and worthy of having again.

Pours with a thick, velvety head two fingers deep. Pale white-yellow with some filaments. Smells spicy. First impressions are orange juice and strong yeast flavors. Subtle nutmeg and herbal notes. Decent body; very smooth (almost flat) on the finish. Interesting.

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have orange and lemony citrus, coriander, additional spices, pale malts, crisp, clean, just not very exciting.
