3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Rakuten. I thought this was a weizen but it turns out it is a Belgian Pale Ale brewed with Einkorn Wheat. It was a bit of an odd beer, it poured a nice golden copper with a thin quickly dissipating head. The aroma was candy like with citrus notes. The flavor was sweet and tasted a bit like oranges. Some people thought it was sour, some thought it had sorachi ace & someone else thought it was made using Brett... I think it was probably just the odd wheat used in the brewing coming through, quite interesting & unique.

Bottle from Ashburn wine market. Pours peach with a small white head. HD a bit of a Heineken skunk nose at first but that faded into a slight fruitiness. I Get some coriander on the tongue. The finish has some bite to it. Solid.

Whole Foods, Bowery 37.5cl ($5): Pours an ever so slightly golden with a white head. Aroma is fruity, herbal, and even a bit metallic. Taste is herbal tea like, but a lot sweeter, with a hefty malt backbone. Some lingering pretentious candy taste. Reminds me a bit of Turkish delight. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Present; BBD: June 2013) Pours a cloudy amber with medium, white head and floaties. Decent retention and lace. Aroma is yeasty with notes of dust, green fruit and spice. Also malty hints of cereal. Medium body, medium carbonation, oily texture and a slightly acidic finish. Taste is fruity, sweet and acidic with not much bitterness. Special but not unpleasant. Girlfriend says: "It’s a bit metallic at first but the fruityness covers it nicely."

Delicious beer. Citrus zesty and coriander spicy aroma. Hazy gold color with a low white foamy persistent head. Sweet zesty citrus flavor with a very mild bitter finish. Smooth, silky, creamy mouthfeel with a mild alcohol warming. Salute!
