This wonderful wheat is slightly sweet and spicy from the coriander and candied orange peels that are part of this traditional Belgium recipe. Simply delicious served with a slice of lemon.

This is cloudy golden brew and it is absolutely laden with coriander citrus character. It is not altogether bad but very much one dimension in the vein of something like Blue Moon or Leinenkugel’s beers in the same style. It is lightly sweet with some cookie dough malt character with perhaps slightly overly vigorous carbonation. I think a beer like this will have it’s fans. Like, if you brought it to party, someone there would think it was great but to me it is just not nearly subtle enough to qualify as a good wit.

Pour at the RBsG 2014 Schlafly Brunch (Maplewood, MO). Pours a hazy gently darker orange golden hue, a bit dulled, loose bubbles with some lively carbonation, frothy whitish head atop stays as a loose ring, laces minimally. Aromas are nice, a firmer coriander bent with gentle spice, orange rind and juice, flaked wheat. Some more citric bite meets that strong coriander feel. Initial is spritzy, dry and bubbly with some firmer coriander, mellow orange peel and bread. A smaller body shows more orange rind and juice, touches of grain, gentle dryness. Backend is a bit lighter, gentle crisp/dry element cuts through. Finish a touch dry, tart and lemon/orange play. That firmer coriander feel tapers out and becomes a bit more manageable.

Nose is a perfume and coriander explosion like laundry detergent fragrance. Pour is a light yellow, cloudy. Taste is floral, mouthfeel is thin and light on the carbonation. Ok I guess.

The appearance of this beer is a cloudy golden with a large white head, and the aroma is mostly sour and not pleasant blends lemons, wheat, and yeast. The taste is shockingly plain with a slight sourness and a touch sweet; indeed, the palate is almost more prominent than the taste due to the thin texture and light body, but the soft carbonation and abrupt finish do nothing to save this beer. I’m seriously disappointed in this one.

Orange lemon fruity taste. Poured from 12oz bottle at flannerys. Tart beer. Decent for the style, which I normally hate.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and spice. Taste is lemon, orange, coriander, yeast, and wheat. Pretty decent.

Its a serviceable drink, but lacks in flavor and depth. I like wheat beers, and its not bad at all, however I felt I was left wanting more complexity. I would probably not buy this again, but it was a good experience.
