Definitive cloviness, though not overpowering. Hazy and extremely light in color - almost looks watered down. Nice flavor but overall it strikes me as too thin.

2015 bottle. A hazy light straw color with a foamy white head. Sweet light malt with a little orange and lemon and a hint of pepper. Taste is pleasant sweet malt with the same orange and lemon with a little coriander coming through. Totally refreshing and imminently drinkable. A nice soft medium body with plenty of carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old rating. Pours hazy, very light yellow, with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and sweet citrus with orange peel, as well as bubblegum and coriander. Full body, with quite fizzy carbonation. Flavour is sweet fruity yeast, as well as some light, grainy malts.

Aroma is full of the coriander spice. Spice spice baby!!...Appearance, I love unfiltered beers! This one is pretty. It pours an applesauce color, and being cloudy like it is, it looks like applesauce. Pours a super foamy head, wouldn’t call it thick though. It didn’t last long...Taste is not so good. The description above calls it "sweet and sour" and my thought is it leans more toward the sour. After the head goes away it’s better, I’m still not impressed. The orange peel comes through more so now....Mouthfeel, it’s quite carbonated, and it’s soft, and still sour....Overall, at first I thought I had a skunk, it was very sour. But my thoughts changed a little after the head went away, but my ratings reflect my average reaction to it. EXPIRATION DATE IS 20 MONTHS AWAY!! What’s up with that?

Classica blanche di ottima fattura. Sia al naso che al gusto la scorza di arancia prevale e il coriandolo ne fa da ottimo compagno. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Cloudy straw-orange body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Orange zest, light coriander, soft wheat, light cracker. Medium to light bodied, moderate carbonation, gentle sweetness through, clean, refreshing finish. Not overly complex, but well executed and enjoyable.

floydslip (226) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Cloudy straw colored beer with a thick foamy bright white head that lasts. Nose of orange, coriander, and pepper. Bracing citrus flavor hits immediately before subsiding into layers of spice and sugar with virtually no bitterness at all--it comes across as a really good shandy with some added spice. Crisp and refreshing, this is pretty delicious and about the easiest drinking beer out there (I finished the whole glass while writing this), but I’m not in the mood for another.

Dark Bottle, Tesco, Edinburgh City. Pours light amber with a thick, foamy head, subsiding slowly. Scent is medium wheat, but simple. Taste is a dense wheat and weizen yeast with a little hint of citrus, maybe coriander. Palette is light and simple, but not detracting. A good beer.
