Outstanding first beer! Clean with a touch of citrus and floral in the finish. Nicely laced glass. Pared well with chicken quesadilla! This is a great beer to start your private adventure! Sláinte!

Pours a clear light amber with a very small white head and very good lacing. Smells a bit skunky, malt, some caramel, and a little dirt. Taste is of wheat, a little citrus, banana, and earthy. Ends a little citrus and fruity.

jmohno (1524) - Iowa, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Hazed pale yellow, Light head, foamy. ARoma is clove, lemon citrus, Maybe hints of banana. I remember this being more bublegumy than it is now. Its dry tart light and lemony, minerally almost diety. Use to like this more, havenít had it in years.

drpimento (3126) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Aromaís mostly yeast with a bit of spice. Colossal head that settles shortly. Flavorís like nose plus fruit and a little malt. Something about this beer rubs me the wrong way.

piscator34 (2344) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
On draft. Hazy straw gold in colour with medium carbonation. Assertive aromas of lemon peel, raw wheat, and coriander. Nicely balanced in the mouth between the citric lemon/coriander, the spicy white pepper, and the smooth wheat. Medium bodied with a bright finish. Tasty stuff. Itís been a while since Iíve had a new-to-me witbier that has tasted this good.

BeerCoff4025 (31) - Iowa, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Poured from bottle into tulip glass. Golden yellow, with little head but a lot of carbonation. Has some decent flavor, hints of bubblegum and spices. Overall, a little disappointed with the lack of punch to this one. Seemed like the bottle may have come a little flat. Would prefer to try again on tap.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear gold with a big white head and lots of lacing the glass, I did pour it rather aggressively though, the aroma has a ton of spice and fruit at first with the flavor being much of the same, bright flavor at first with lots of the wheat and coriander and orange coming through in the finish, slightly tart too which is awesome, good stuff.

Bottle poured a cloudy gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of wheat, yeast, coriander and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of wheat, yeast, coriander and light citrus with a crisp dry lingering coriander finish.
