Poured from tap at Berkeley Pyramid ale house, labeled as Belgian style white, a cloudy blonde with small white head. The nose was very soft with a little citrus and something like corriander and cinnamon. Flavor was mostly sweet honey, light spice of cinnamon, and sweet citrus. Very little carbonation, tang or malt-feel to this one. Palate is mostly sweet with a very small tartness, and the spice is very subdued. Overall the flavor is ok but the beer lack spiciness and carbonation as well as being too sweet. I would skip this one next time.

The menu card said this was a Belgian style white that included spices like coriander. Fine, I thought, so this is supposed to taste like Hoegaarden. I took a sniff and sip and said: apricots?!?!?!, a Belgian wit isnít supposed to taste like apricots! Then my dinner companion pointed out that I had also ordered Pyramid apricot ale and the ditzy waitress probably put the tasters on improper places on the laminated beer menu. Sure enough, thatís what happened. Cloudy, light orange color. Citrusy smell with a hint of yeast. Bitter, watery, with a hit of wit yeastyness. Some spice, but without strong coriander flavor or fullness of most wits.
