Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a hazy, golden yellow body with virtually no head (some white foam). Notes of orange and spice are evident in the nose, as is expected with the style. Mouthfeel is crisp, smooth, and slightly tart, with a palate of bread and citrus. I have had stronger flavor profiles, though this beer does deliver on most of what it wants to do.

This white ale poured a very light yellow colour with a bright white smooth head. To the nose there are scents of ripe fruit, pineapple, yeast and lemon. First taste is smooth and creamy with flavours of spice, hopps and lemon. Palate is slightly yeasty with a bitter flavour that lasts into the palate.

Crushed with Jakebra. So we were cooking a pizza at the same time we poured this one, and I thought the brew smelled like pizza. So I left the room. But it still smells like pizza. Don’t know what kinda spices they put in this, or if their orange peel evolved into a pizza smell, but it’s definitely there. Sucks.

Slightly hazy golden beer with a lasting white head. Strong spice aroma, coriander, cardemum, spruce and a touch of citrus. Dry and way over-spiced flavour.

Pours a murky dull orange with no head. Interesting very spicy aroma.... lots of sweet/hot cardamom, coriander, vanilla and orange. Flavor is exactly as the aroma indicates, except maybe a tad lighter. Tastes like a cardamom/coriander soda... semi-sweet. At first feels heavy in the mouth and then as you swallow it feels like there is no body at all, super light, sparkling soda carbonation. Odd beer... overly spiced for sure... reminds me very much of Coney Island Albino White and Wolavers Wit.

Extremely light, somewhat spicy belgian. Hard to believe there’s any alcohol in there. Minimal nose and taste, but I feel like I could drink 30 of them... If I had to.

This golden pour has a small white head. It smells of banana and tastes much the same. There is a little bit of spice in there that grows as it warms. It is smooth and drinkable.

Pale gold body with a fine white head. Zesty aroma consisting of coriander, bananas, and steamed buns. Palate is light and oily up front with good carbonation leaking through. Very nice flavor. Some citrus, yeast, and spice for sure. Finishes clean and crisp. A good example of one of my favorite beer types.

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Distinct coriander aroma and flavor. Otherwise a nice spicy, drinkable wheat beer.

3.2

Draft at Dixie’s on Grand. Pours a hazy, yellow-orange body with a dense, white foam head. Aroma of malts, yeast, citrus, and coriander with a hint of banana. Flavor is more of the same. Light to medium bodied with a lively fizzy mouthfeel. Finishes a tad watery with banana and coriander notes. An enjoyable beer for a hot summer day.
