Nose
Spicy, dusty and fairly malty.
Palate
Full-bodied and reasonably sweet, but with a grounding bitterness and a peppery, coriander presence that also brings some zesty orange.
Finish
Warming, chewy and peppery, with more orange. It starts bittersweet and turns more bitter.
Comment
A strong wheat beer with plenty of taste, but a bit too chewy and heavy for my taste and a little dull on the whole.

Nose
Yeasty. Curry spices (coriander seeds and sweet clove). Bit like a box that a long time ago contained incense sticks.
Palate
Drying. Bags of wheat and malty sweetness.
Finish
spicy, warming alcohol. Fairly short bitterness like orange peel and a touch of white pepper.
Comment
A good wheat beer with just the right balance of spices, but not enough of that something special to take it to the next level.
