33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a white head. Spiced and belgian wit like wheat aroma. Mild orange fruity and citric too. Dense ginger soapy flavour, coriander sure - but there is a lot more to it, nutmeg too. Mild sweetness and light flowery wheat accent. Ends quite flowery - like eating a bouquet - a well - perhaps just a flower or two :) Different but not unpleasant.

Bottled. An unclear light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is of ginger, coriander, and citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of ginger and a boring coriander not. The body is thin.
