Light, good carbonation, but funky wheat aroma (still trying to gravitate from IPA to wheat); you can taste both the sweet and sour as the description says. Excellent with a lemon and some seafood. I rarely give a 5 for palate, but this deserves it.

This is one of those beers Iíve had tons of times never really though anything of it other than itís refreshing, cheap and tastes good. Well I grabbed a pint can of it in France for the exact same reason but this time around I actually was kind of blown away at how good it it. For a macro beer, this one actually can stand up to many beers of the style. Aroma is peppery, spicy sweetness with a subtle sweet fruit aroma. Taste is spectacular. I had it out of the can and in a glass and honestly, the can was even better. Nice peppery spiciness followed by a bubblegum sweetness. Lots of fresh fruit followed by a nice refreshing wheat beer finish. Donít really know what else to call it. I donít usually get all charged up about macro beers or imports but this one is really good. I donít know if theres a difference in the European cans and the ones we get stateside but it was delicious and I definitely had my share while I was in Europe. Cheers

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, wouldnít call it thick though. It didnít 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 itís better, Iím still not impressed. The orange peel comes through more so now....Mouthfeel, itís quite carbonated, and itís 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!! Whatís 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.

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 Iím not in the mood for another.
