COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THE ALE: This ale has a well-rounded aroma of citrus notes, clove, and apple. It is refreshing and soft, with balanced hints of bitter orange peel and coriander. It finishes dry and clean, making it perfect for pairing with lighter foods such as mussels, salmon, and chicken. THE STORY: Naked Nun was named to mark the time in Colombia when Del was robbed by bandits while hiking down from Cerro de Monserrate. They took his wallet, watch and every stitch of clothing. After hiding for a while behind some sheep, he finally got the attention of some local nuns, who were nice enough to give him a blanket and bus fare to get back home. Technically, he was the naked one, but Naked Gringo just didnít have the same ring to it!

I really wanted to like this but it was just average. There was a lemony aroma mixed with wheat albeit very faint. Lemonade color with a white fizzy head. This became more cloudy at the end of the bottle. The taste was witbier light. Some wheat and grain elements with a little citrus. No hops recognized. Light and pucker mouthfeel that left me wanting.

Large bottle in Fl. Lemon aroma, kinda like a cleaner. Very frothy. Bit of tart but also sweet. Simply not noticing coriander or so called spices. Overpriced

tapthis (225) - Baytown, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Has a dull yellow color with a 1 inch head when poured. Very little lacing but great bubble taste in the mouth. Tastes of wheat grass and has a lemony citrus flavor that sticks around in the aftertaste. Mediocre mouthfeel.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Bomber from Specís - Memorial in Houston, TX. Hazy yellow pour with a white head that faded pretty quickly. Aroma is yeast, clove, and yeah I get the apple as well. Some more of that prickly mild tart apple on taste, lively carbonation. Decent.

Big foamy white head that lasts forever. Nose of mild citrus. Flavor of light mixed fruits, perhaps lemons, banana, grapefruit and bitter-root. Has a bit of a spice finish to it with some washed out coriander and cardamon. Very dry. Clearly a well made beer, but its not very exciting either.

750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Batch No. 033. Bottled on 12/02/14. 5.8% ABV per the label. Not barrel aged. Pours a thick, gradually collapsing white head, with some lacing, over a slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) highly effervescent body.....nose is light citrus (orange) coriander, base malts with wheat cereal, no hops......taste has hints of sweetness to start, with coriander, citrus notes, wheat, base malts, minimal herbal hop notes, becoming dry, with mild finishing hop bitterness......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. moderate acid. This is obviously a different beer than was originally described, with a significant change in the recipe resulting in a much higher alcohol. It is a pleasant beer and falls within the style but lacks some of the spice nuances in both aroma and flavor. This is probably a function of yeast choice or fermentation temperature, which should be higher. BJCP 7/2/13/4/6

Nice spicy yeast aroma. Pours a nice golden color with a bit of head. Taste is a bit sweet with some bite. Good level of spice. Not too wheaty. Nice light mouth.
