If you are looking for a twist on the Weizen style, look no further. The citrus from the orange and coriander goes very well with the clove/banana/vanilla of the weizen yeast and develops a complex aroma.
The taste is just as good, but the biscuity from the carawheat gives it a mellow taste, and the buckwheat adds complexity.. Although I am not exactly sure what the buckwheat contributes to this beer, I added it as an experiment and I think the other flavors overpowers it.
