neuromatt (1154) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
Batch K10284, bottle #362/465. 750 mL bottle from the brewery, served in a Trappist glass. Pours clear orange-golden with a small amount of fine sediment that remains suspended. The head is small, off-white and fades quickly to a thin remnant. On the nose, there are notes of grass, citrus, coriander, honey, caramel, flowers and a touch of herbs. The flavour is moderately sweet up front, with notes of honey and coriander. Through the middle, a dryish wheat component starts to come through. The finish is moderate in length and dry with coriander and orange peel notes. Overall, this is a decent wheat ale, but nothing special. The malts are quite simple and there is a slightly harsh quality to the finish. 2011-12-07

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2011
On tap at Samís, Durham, after the Bells takeover event. Had this just after the Sweet Potato stout and it was a nice changeup. Poured a hazy light orange with a decent froth, but there was something about the almost opaque, sorta sedimental look that suggested some kind of traditional ale. The nose with honey buttressed that impression initially, but then sharp hops and ripeness came on strong. Mouthfeel was just medium and could have used a pick-me-up. Taste was quite satisfying, bitter and sweet in a balanced fashion, kind of like Imperial Oberon.

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Tap at Caponeís. Hazy golden pour with a larger sized white head. Grains with citrus. Some bread with spices. Lighter honey, but thatís fine with me. Nothing really stood out.

Draught at Caponeís: Aroma of malt, fruit, dry, dry-wall, yeast, grain, and a hint of honey. Poured yellow/gold in color with a small, loose, creamy, white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly spicy. Tastes of malt, honey, light hops, grains, slight fruit, slight dust, and slight citrus. Light to medium body. Thinish, dry texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, grain, honey, dust finish is dry. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 1, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2011 On tap at Samís. Cheers to BBQ. Pours hazy golden with white head. Nose is bready and sweet. Mild sweet orange peel. Not really like a wheat ale or a wit, exactly. Is it the name that makes me think of wedding cake? Interesting and refreshing. Fairly subtle, but I really like this beer.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle number 94/203 thanks to womencantsail. Pours with a lightly hazed golden body with a white head. Aromas are strongly spicy. Big time coriander, cumin, celery, belgian yeast. Smells like chicken stock. Candied orange peel. Flavors of light umami, beef bullion, coriander and candied orange peel. Odd. Lively bubbles, medium bodied.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 18, 2011
A: The beer pours amber in color with a nice, tall, white head. S: Sort of a bland nose, I find. The spices are definitely there. Itís heavy on the coriander and orange peel notes. I donít get a ton from the honey, though there is a bit of floral character. Plenty of bread and cracker malts, though. T: Sweet, pale malts with a light biscuit and cracker flavor make up most of the flavor. There is a good amount of floral character as well as a strong flavor of spices: coriander, pepper, and orange peel. Thereís something slightly savory about it. M: Medium in body with a rather high level of carbonation. O: Not the greatest nose, but just sort of bland more than offensive. An okay beer. Nice to try, but not amazing.
