Bottle shared with IPFreely, DougShoemaker, Radek &friends at Coles Buffalo NY. Pours a slight;ly hazy light golden color. Aroma of funk & skunk immediate after opening bottle. Aroma turned towards light spice & pilsner aroma. Flavor consists of light fruit, coriander, belgian candi sugar & yeast. Crisp, nice to drink but not overly complicated or defining. Decent

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy/cloudy golden color with a moderate off-white head. Light wheat and spice aromas. Some hints of light fruit and mild citrus as well. Flavors are quite spicy. Mild pear and apples, mix with nutmeg and cinnamon. Alcohol also add quite a spice element. It shows a bit too much strength and not enough depth.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very slightly clouded gold and straw with a decent sized off white head. Nice, if not uneventful nose. Definite sugar and spices, and everything nices. Flavor is decent. Some definite fruit tones in there. Almost like drinking beer with a juice edge. A bit thin. So is the feel. Much thinner than I would prefer, but it is still a nice beer overall. It doesn’t kill it. This is an easy drinker. Too bad the body isn’t a bit more firm.
