On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: The body is slightly hazy with an orange hue, the head is short with poor retention, thin density.
Aroma: The aroma is strong of solventy orange, perhaps coriander. and hints of banana.
Taste: The flavor matches the aroma, dry with coriander and hay, hints of banana.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Iím not a huge fan of the style and this does nothing to help me like it more.

boxofrane (2149) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours fairly clear orange with a medium sized white head, carbonation in the glass, and some light yeast floaties. The aroma has the best attributes of a witbier with plenty of pepper, coriander, orange, spices, and a little Belgian yeast. The taste has a nice bitter punch that is well balanced with the citrus and spiciness. Pretty solid.

Vir4030 (517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Pours a cloudy off-white out of a bottle. Nose is the distinctive belgian banana citrus alcohol. Mouth has more hops, a little bite, thereís the IPA. Interesting that the nose hints to very little of the bitterness and the flavor contains almost no belgian notes. The nose part is very nice, but I donít like the balance of the flavor so much.

Kind of confused me, I got a six pack and one day I thought it had some nice Belgian ale qualities with just a little extra hops, but then the next time it seemed like a hoppy IPA with a hint of Belgian ale qualities.

ICEatALAMO (944) - Troy, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle. The pour is very light in color. The aroma is mostly that of a belgian, little hop aroma. The taste is not much if an ipa at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adnielsen (9279) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle @ Gregís house picked up in the Midwest. Pours a somewhat hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. A bit piney, spicy hoppy, citrusy, coriander, spiced aroma. Fairly spicy hoppy, herbal, light citrusy, a bitffloral flavor. Solid.

JDBaker11058 (1316) - Maryland, USA - JUN 26, 2013
Appearance: hazy orange gold, with a creamy white head and decent lacing. Aroma: bright citrus hops assail the nose, followed by a subdued whiff of coriander, white pepper, and a bit of yellow rice. Taste: slightly sweet, with a pleasant wheaty twang and a hint of passion fruit, then citrus and floral hop bitterness floods the mouth. Finish: dry and suprisingly bitter, with the citrus hop notes competing with a bit of yeasty spice as it fades slowly. Notes: Definitely a White IPA by style, rather than a Belgian Ale as indicated here. I prefer my IPAs as IPAs, and my Belgian Whites as Belgian Whites. Even so, this was a decently-constructed beer with an effervescent and refreshing palate. NoVA Brewfest 2013.

Draft. Didnít do a whole lot to get me excited about it but this isnít one of my favorite style beers. Fruit, clove, wheat flavor/aroma. Has ok look and mouth feel

deaconmike (391) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Cloudy orange color with fluffy head. Belgian yeast, spice and hops in the aroma. Taste is somewhat sweet with lots of orange citrus coming through and nice hop bitterness. Medium bodied beer, smooth drinking. A really enjoyable Belgian IPA.

Fruity wheat nose. More fruit on palate also strong wheat flavor. Not getting the classic Belgium ale flavors but it is a solid brew.
