Unfiltered Belgian White, flavored with coriander and orange peel, creating a sweet & sour taste.

Bottled. Poured a brilliant cappucino like head (which I’m sure would have stayed for hours if I could have resisted) that created lovely lacings down the sides of the glass as I polished it off. Not a very strong aroma, but pleasant and spicy. Upon tasting, I realised the spicy aroma came from a deliciously sweet clove flavour. Aftertaste is very doughy, like undercooked pizza base. I could only get this, though, by waiting a while between tastes (got distracted by the stove!!). A fairly metallic finish, but a nice round body. A very tasty beer, but I don’t know if I could drink this as a staple. Next time I might have to follow the instructions on the label LOL.

Pour is a bright yellow like lemon juice. Aroma is nice and spicy with a bit of pepper in there. Flavor is peppery and spicy with a lemony backbone. Very refreshing on a warm summer night.

Not a fan of white’s. This beer is too washed out for me, like a mammossa made with champagne and banana juice.

Review for bottled product, but similar experience with beer on tap.

Pallid yellow with a light, frosty haze and a large, foamy head. Light, dry aroma with a definite floral character... perfumed... sourdough in tow. Bitter, sour flavor with light acidity to follow. Floral notes in the sinuses. Creamy mouthfeel with a dry end. If anyone here besides me has consumed rose petals, this is quite similar. Pleasant, melancholy and (dare I say) gothic.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2008 Staple for the style. If SNPA is the textbook pale ale, this is certainly the texbook wit. Decent, enjoyable and well made... but not mindblowing.

I really enjoyed this one, served in a huge glass, takes awhile to drink, great taste, can taste the orange, with a bit of sweetness, great color, a bit white and amber combined, interesting appearance

Cloudy pale yellow body with average white head. Light grass, lemon citrus aroma and slight sour, lime flavor. Smooth body, sweet finish. Refreshing drinking beer.

This cloudy golden wheat beer poured with a nice white head, eliciting a pleasant spicy aroma. The flavor is a bit fruity and heavily spiced. This is a very refreshing drink that goes well on a hot summer day.

Although cloudy, I found the appearance appealing. Great head properties. Lots of aroma. A big bouquet of flavours across the palate - lots of fruitiness, yet quite smooth. Give me another!

By far the best of the summer beers. Crisp and refreshing. Goes great with seafood dishes.
