This is an attempt to duplicate the Belgian White style by an American brewery (Ommegang) that is owned by a Belgian brewing conglomerate (Duvel). Confused? Yup, so am I. To start with, I wasn't all that wild about it. The spices certainly did come out, but that's all there was to it. The body of the beer was almost non-existent. If I want to taste nothing but orange peel and coriander, I'll eat an orange and some coriander. It was OK tasting, and it'd be better if it was in the dead of summer, but it just needed something more, as it was the body was too weak. Sterkens or Hoegaarden would've been a better choice.
