COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A seamless network of tracks, the covert trolley system of the 1920ís was the ticket to an American revolution, the revolt of Prohibition. Connecting underground speakeasies, mobsters teamed with bootleggers to distribute barrels of their precious brew. Let your palate travel the underground flavor network of this Belgian style wheat ale. Bright flavors of orange balanced by subtly spicy coriander make this unfiltered ale a reason to celebrate. Raise your glass for "This is a plea for beer!"

Little to no aroma. Cloudy yellow with no retention. Slight banana and clove flavoring. Palate is weak and watery. Maybe a good beer for the hot summertime.

This was in one of those mixed 9 packs from Cost Plus, cloudy light golden/straw colored with a minimal white head. Nose is faint, mostly spices, taste is pretty bland, carbonation is good, leaves the palate a little deprived. Overall mediocre, not quite a sink dump.

No retention and no lacing. Smells of semi-sweet malt and cloves. Tastes of wheat and lightly fruity malt. Not much to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Faint aroma, mostly of cloves with hints of banana and some spices. The flavor is very unusual though. Very faint with only the slightest hint of any of the spices that are in the aroma. The flavor disappears quickly. Very strange

Pours nice golden with light quick dissipating head. Aroma is light flowery. Tastes a little like honey.

DrSilverworm (5024) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
12oz bottle, from Jungle Jimís in Eastgate. Mostly clear but paler golden yellow color. Thin rocky white head. Pretty good, more full lace. Musty aroma. Dusty, basementy. Medium body. Kind of smooth, lighter carbonation. Aroma is pretty much just musty, dusty basement aromas, hint of super-rindy orange, minimal spice or peel zest, pretty much none at all of those latter two good flavors that I wish this had.. Just a lot of must, is predominate here. Moderate sweet, light bitter. Kind of spicy taste. Pretty bad belgian white. Why does it have to be so musty? Even those who love Blue Moon / Hoegaarden would be repulsed by this.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Pours hazy gold with white head. Smells of bread, little orange and lemon and yeast. Taste little lemon, orange and wheat with thin finish. Ok but not great.

jmagnus87 (2220) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of dank wheat with coriander and a little lemon citrus. Taste is light sweet. Corriander with a hint of citrus. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, its ok. Nothing super zpecial but drinkable.

Bottle. Lemon and light malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with large head. Lightly sweet lemon and wheat malt flavor with just a hint of coriander in the finish. Tastes like a mediocre wheat ale.
