Little aroma. Some wheat flavors, as well as light citrus. Lightly spiced. Light body. A bit disappointing.

Nice to see a little more Belgium beer make it past the gatemasters at the LCBO. A Belgian-standard 330ml we bottle from my local. Pours as one would expect a golden-white with cloud with a half-finger of dense white head. Smells of wheat malts as one would expect, with, oddly, a little raw egg smell in there too, and some cilantro. The taste is very calm, no really big anything. Wheat malts, lemon citrus, cilantro, a bit of tang, Belgian yeasty goodness. Nice beer. Very drinkable.

Cloudy light yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, citrus, and coriander. Taste of yeast, coriander, wheat, lemon citrus, slight orange. Light bodied, medium carbonation, slightly dry finish.

330ml bottle from LCBO Danforth&Broadview, Toronto, ON. 5.5% alc./vol. Pours a cloudy deep straw colour with 2 finger of white head. Exeptionally long lasting head retention. Aroma of coriander and some hints of oranges. Taste is soft and has a dry creamy finish. Corriander is pronounced. Lively carbonation.

330 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours cloudy peach with white head. Smells tart, citrus, funky yeast some banana. Same notes on the taste with some spice thrown in. Really refreshing, this is a winner for me.

Poured it too cold. Killed the aroma. Citrus is all i detecct. Taste is citrus, also a hint of banana? Not as smooth as other wheat beers.

On tap. Pours a cloudy tawny color with light head. Aromas of lemons and coriander. Flavors of sharp citrus, coriander, and soft wheat. Nice.

zach8270 (3431) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2014
(bottle - 330 ml) Cloudy gold with a white head. Spicy and slightly flowery aroma with lots of lemon zest it seems. Citrus and wheat in the flavor with a dry wheat backbone and a fruity and spicy finish. Really nice.

33cl bottle at home. Hazy yellow with a medium white head with low retention. Light to medium body with medium to heavy carbonation. Medium sweetnes with some bitter and sour notes. Citrus, wheat, banana and herbs. An ok white beer but nothing special.

Trübe Optik, wie Bananensaft. In der Nase Banane, Hefe, Zitrus, PFirisch, erfrischende Säure. Am Gaumen Säure, Frucht, Banane, Weizen, Hefenoten. Sehr perlig, ausfüllend, erfrischend. Tolles Wit.
