A seamless network of tracks, the covert trolley system of the 1920’s 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!"

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Appearance: 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.
Nose: 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.
Palate: 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.
Final Thoughts: 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.

small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. cloudy thick dark yellow body, aroma: light yeasty, banana, vanilla and strawberry quik. if: moderate sweet light acidic. ff: light sweet moderate acidic; average duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, moderate astringent finish. Estranho dulçor e backbones maltados, totalmente alheios ao estilo. O sabor geral não é ruim, mas o desvirtuamento parece amador. Há um sabor adstringente, mas não o azedume de limão e levedura permeado por dulçor de banana e baunilha que sugerem os melhores exemplares do estilo. Mais uma bola fora da barrel trolley.10 s

Bottle. Pours a very cloudy brownish-yellow color with a small off-white head on there. Nose is heavy on the wheat with a little banana and very subtle hints of orange to it. Taste is slightly sweet, but feels a bit heavy and feels fairly average. Not all that great.

N3lson1 (312) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Drank from a pint glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. A nice sweet flowery aromas followed by a subtle spiciness of coriander. Golden yellow color with moderate cloudiness, and a thick white head that dissipates at an average rate. A nice sweet initial taste on the tounge that give way to a slight spicey flavor on the tounge with a dry sweet finish.

Pershing (485) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Cloudy yellow with a thin head that diminishes quickly. Fair amount of visual carbonation. Aroma of spice with some banana. Thin mouth feel with a watered taste. Lingering spice finish. OK for a summer selection though.

BrownALEx (310) - Portland, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2014
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.

larryLSB (451) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - JAN 12, 2014
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.

maddmatt639 (311) - Pacifica, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
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

unclemike (2402) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 22, 2013
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.
