3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub, Michigan Trip ’06. Nice cloudy white, frothy head. Very spicy perfume aroma - fresh. Taste is very sweet lemon (not citrus really) - more like lemon meringue - gives way to more perfume/floral taste - what an interesting original wit! I really enjoyed it.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught sampler at the brewpub. Hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild with notes of spice, wheat and a bit of tartness. Flavour is clean and fresh, with notes of lemon and yeast, but a bit bland. Needs more of something, but I’m not sure what.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 Draught. At the brewpub with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev. Exremely murky yellow-orange, looks like pineapple juice with a small creamy white head. Quite mild aroma, banana, sweet malt, mild spice and other fruit, some light dry grain. Sweet and fruity taste, some slightly bitter/funky spice (coriander, Jer?), lemon and quite thick candyish malt - finished very quickly, no aftertaste, very refreshing, if a tad simple and sweet - just right for a first beer after a long car ride.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly darker yellow body than the hefeweizen, small white head. Prominent coriander over mild yeast and barely there citrus. Sweet yeasty character, very light citrus coriander is far less present than in the aroma. Average palate.
