I found this beer unmemorable and doubt that I would seek it out again. Unimpressive for a Belgian brew.

On Tap. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. White bread, light bubblegum. Lemon aroma. Light body, medium carbonation. Average, and a little thin. Wheat, yeast, lemon... Standard fare, but fine.

This was poured into a mug since it is a witbier and not weizen because weizens are for German styled weizen beers, not Belgian witbiers. Anyways, here’s the rest. The appearance was an extremely nice looking hazy pale golden yellow with a decent one finger to one and a half finger white foamy head that dissipates within about less than a minute. There isn’t much lacing. The smell has a super nice blend of coriander to orange peel leading to a nice sweet lemon-like lingering aroma just rolling all around underneath my nose. The taste was pretty sweet through the orange but gently lets in the coriander to add a very nice spicy element to the flavor. There’s a slight refreshing sweet to spicy aftertaste that ends up leading to a slight coriander semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation is right on par for the style and for me. Overall, in my opinion, this was a very nicely done witbier well worthy of having again and would love to have it again with a nice fresh seafood dish. I do have to admit, I am a bit surprised to not find as much yeasty/breadiness to this one, but honestly, I think I’m okay with that.

Draft: Pours a beautiful orangish-yellow with a medium white head. Aromas are orange and citrus fruits with some yeast and earthiness. The flavor is nice a clean citrus with some earthy spice. Coriander and cloves. Very nice summer drinker, with a full body and complex taste.

Mild floral and citrus aromas. Pours a cloudy golden with minimal head, looks great. Light sour taste. Light body, oily texture, and average carbonation. Overall not a bad white beer, a good one for a hot day.

Reimer96 (1167) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours a hazy golden orange with a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, orange zest, spicy phenols and coriander. Taste is a delicate balance of orange, citrus, coriander and light spiciness. Just needs a little more body all around.

Burnt yellow colour with a white head. Smell of coriander and orange with a taste to match. Translucent throughout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Straw yellow with very large head. Aroma- dank grain, spice and orange. Taste is similar to aroma. Orange peel, coriander, wheat, candy sugar and very slight bitterness. Don't love this style because they all taste so similar to me. It's plenty good and probably a top example for the style but kind of boring. Just my opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy, pale yellow with a big, frothy white head that laces nicely. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus and wheat. Sweet flavour with citrus, wheat and a light, dry, spicy finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

Aroma: Spicy aroma with hints of fresh bread underneath. Appearance: Sparkling gold with a rich white head that dissipates quickly. Taste: Light sweetness balance by a soft sourness at the edges. Palate: Light body, watery texture, soft carbonation, sweet finish. Overall: It’s a bit too thin for me, and the flavor is a little under developed. Not a bad beer, just nothing outstanding, either.
