Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium-sized white head. Aroma and flavor of wheat, mild banana and fruit, coriander, orange zest, a bit of pepperiness. Finish is a bit sweet. Mouthfeel and carbonation are light. Nice and summery but awfully mild.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Got a 6er of this for a fathers day gift. Pours a bright hazy gold with medium foamy white head. Minimal aroma - slight dough with lemon zest. Flavor light and sweet, pretty plain dough and sugared oranges, lite carbonation, could use more. Overall, pretty weak.

12 oz. Like it says, pours a hazy gold with white head. Spicy and aromatic. The citrus is quite refreshing on a hot day. Lightly hopped, clean crystal malt. The spice predominates, but isnít overwhelming.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden body with a white head and slim head retention. Aromatically wheat and coriander but still a bit mute. Light husky and grain with citrus under tone sweetness. Mild soft body with a light sweetness and hint of spice in the finish. Rather average.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle from emacgee- thanks again, Ethan! Pours a light, bright yellow color, just a little cloudy in the thickest part of the glass with a small, bubbly white head. Aroma of coriander, pepper, lemongrass, citrus peel, and sweet, bready malts. Flavor of coriander, lemongrass, sweet malts, pepper, straw, and minerals. Light-medium bodied, with sharp carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. Decent Belgian white, and a slightly different than normal take on the style.
