What makes this a Belgian Hefeweizen? I thought Hefeweizen referred to German wheat beer. Not trying to be nitpicky, just curious.

I just cut and pasted from their website description. It would have to be the addition of coriander and ginger (like the Belgians). Germany is not allowed to add these according to the German purity law. "Hefeweizen" just means wheat beer with the yeast still in the bottle (not filtered). I don't think it has to be German.
