Bottle received as a gift from family who recently visited Williamsburg. Pours a slightly hazed golden yellow with just the tiniest head that immediately disappears to nothing. Zero lacing along the glass. Looks almost like a pale apple cider due to the lack of head. Aroma is nice and inviting with an abundance of spice notes. Flavor is quite nice with the mixture of spices and some sweetness. Overall an interesting and unique beer.

eaglefan538 (2892) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 21, 2014
On draft. Pour is hazy golden and with an off white head. Aroma of spices and light fruit. Flavor followed and was a bit sweet, lemons in there too. Sam Adams Summer like. Mouthfeel moderate to light and decent for a summer brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Mom brought this one back from a trip to Williamsburg. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-golden color with a small soapy white head that faded very quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was tangy and sweetish with notes of sugar, dry vague spices and a hint of golden fruits. The flavor was tangy and a bit sour with a touch of vinegar, vague dry spices, bread and a hint of must. Medium length tangy bread and spice finish. Medium body. Ok.

tcane7 (1664) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle split with Chris. Pours a cloudy gold with thin, quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is spice - cardamom, coriander, white pepper; wheat and hints of apple. I donít think there are any hops in this, very low bitterness. Medium body. Not bad at all

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Draft during summer 2013 vacation in Williamsburg at WAW. Hazy golden pour with off-white head. Tasted spicy floral, with coriander, GOP, hopcitrus, some definite peppery notes, and a smooth finish. This was a wheat ale on steroids, and was tasty.

Butters (3764) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Sampled at the Shields Tavern in CW. Cant really tell much about the color as it was served in a stone mug. Nice earthy must to it. Like a spicierversion of a blue moon. Almost a ginger quality to it. Must be the cardamum. The coriander is also fairly prevalent. Fairly refreahing.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Draft at AleWerks.Cloudy, dark amber. Aroma is wheat and slightly spiced. Taste ups the spice notes but is still mild overall. Wheat and toasted grains and sweet malt round out the flavor profile. Body is light to light-medium with a strong dense carbonation feel on the palate. Light lingering spice as well. Ends semisweet with more wheat, sweet malt and spices. Nice!
