3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Can from Village Wine & Spirits in Athens. Cardamom, honey, some funk, and some other stink. Clear straw, thin filmy white head. Sweet & bitter in equal degrees / in mid palate, the funk rises into the sinuses / just a touch cloying in the finis, along with tiny bitter traces. Thin-medium body. Cardmom is interesting here (instead of coriander); it blends nicely with the farmhouse character.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz can. Pours hazy pale yellow with a collapsing white head. Aroma is extremely fragrant--I get floral notes (cardamom?), fruit (melon), a hint of funk. Taste is lightly sweet, spicy (clove), a bit sour, savory and finishes dry and lightly bitter. Palate is a little thin. Itís tasty and interesting but itís missing something.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap: hazy light yellow, thin white head. Wheat and clove nose. Flavor starts weizen-like with wheat, clove, a little bubblegum, honey and banana, then moves into a grassy dry finish. I liked most parts of this beer. It was a bit overly dry at the finish and I was hoping for some yeasty flavors to come through, still makes for good drinking.

Pour of hazy yellow gold with a nice white head. Aroma of big spice with hints of wheat and banana. Initial taste of sweet banana that moves into a spicy wheat of light pepper and clove. Med light body that is smooth with a sweet then bitter med linger of that same coriander spice. Over all good beer that leaves its mark of that sneak up spice.
