2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Haze of oranges under a white bubbly airy head which fades into a decent collar and decent layer of foam. Swirls with the same effect.
Blanched grains, white breads, and water crackers. White pepper and coriander in the back. Faint lemon zest along the edges. Sun-dried husked grains in the middle. A mild nose overall.
Chewy and sweet with orange and peach infused white breads with a husked grains and seeds crust. Lemon rind and pith in the back swallow. Peach and apricot in the middle minus the bread. Pervasive chewy bready mouthfeel – nondescript. Coriander and flower petals linger atop my tongue.
Overall not too shabby – average. A blend of American Wheat and Belgian Wit was my overall impression. I’d drink it again if offered but I wouldn’t actively seek the Barrel Trolley Belgian White out. There are far better examples of this style.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
No retention and no lacing. Smells of semi-sweet malt and cloves. Tastes of wheat and lightly fruity malt. Not much to it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s 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.

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.
