Wow what a surprise to see and drink at a small hotel bar. A nice crisp delightful tasting beer. A beer to recomend to those stuck on the big 3 TV commercialized alcohol laden water drinkers.

This ’perfumy’ beer deserves to be more widely available than it seems to be.

Rather enjoyed this beer from the draft. Had a great looking color and was cloudy. Good sweet flavor, but not overpowering any other aspects of the beer. Good overall balance and a good summer treat. Not bad for a specialy macro brew

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle - 3.2% ABW. Pours a very cloudy and murky golden almost brownish. It has a fizzy white head that quickly disappears completely.
The aroma is yeast, corriander, wheat and some musty fruitiness.
The flavor is pretty subdued for a wit. There’s sweet malt and wheat with some yeast and spiciness but it’s pretty far in the background. It has a slightly bitter finish. There’s some unpleasant acidic mustiness. The mouthfeel is pretty watery and undercarbonated.
Overall, a decent offering by macro standards, but pretty substandard for a wit.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 I first tried this on tap and loved it. Still good in the bottle. Pours opaque, color and vapors are of orange and white cholocate. Sometimes creamy, low carbonation, but far from flat. Good with a hearty dinner. Update: I just tasted black pepper! And I didn’t have any today, so it must be burried deep in the beer. Interesting.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I like everything about this beer, From the nearly Opaque orange color, to the subtle tast of orange peel. I prefer this beer to any other after a long day on the mountain bike. It’s the perfect settle-down beer!
I prefer this on tap to bottled.

On tap served with a slice of orange on the glass- Pours cloudy orange with a very short tan head. Aroma is of spices, yeast, and just a touch of orange peel. Flavor is about the same. Dry finish and light on the palate. A nice summer beer and it was the best available at the bar.
