COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not sure what you just drank? Wheat beer? IPA? Yes, it is. This mysterious ale boasts aromas of tropical fruit, a playful bitter edge, and the body and mouthfeel of an American hefe. Big alcohol and rich white wheat make this unfiltered ale accessible to all types of pallets.

Psytron (1297) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Smell of hops and yeast. Cloudy amber colour, beige head. Aroma of hops, yeast, alcohol, spruce, pepper. Sweet with some bitterness. Oily. Flat but plentiful carbon.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2013
22oz bottle while visiting Albany, GA. Dark orange pour with a small khaki head. Big dank, wash cloth aroma, overly sweet, thick tangerine, esters, banana, and a mishmash of other garbage. Thick, sweet, boozy flavor - bitter, chalky, banana, too much orange, too sweet. Not good.

TheHOFF43 (1749) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle from Haskell’s. Pours a very dark our with billowing head. Aroma is fruity hops. Flavor is strong, smooth hops with lots of citrus. Grapefruit stands out. Finishes a bit sweet, not as bitter as I’d expect. Very solid.

rodenbach99 (3127) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
Item Nine est orangé. Sa tête est bien montée. Son nez est généreusement fruité: de la banane en purée, de la papaye séchée et des cerises de terre bien parfumées. Son goût est bien musclé. Les malts appartiennent à une armée. Les houblons transpirent l’américanité. L’alcool est au cœur d’un danger. Son corps est de bonne densité. Les bulles ne font que piétiner. La texture est un été bien huilé. Sa finale est une douceur dynamitée: l’amertume est un acte terroriste toujours acceptable lorsqu’elle se fait exploser. Une collaboration entre rodenbach99 et slovaksniper.

SpongeRuiner (691) - Michigan, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Boozy smell. Initial taste is tropical fruits. Oranges and tangerines. Then a booze taste comes in and pretty much takes over. Hop lingers on the tongue afterwards.

Martinus (2782) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2013
Clear golden colour, white dissipating head. Sweet aroma, alcohol, malts, honey and alcohol. Sweet flavour, bitter, malts, quite fruity. Bitter finish, notes of tobacco. Nice!

22oz bottle 10/5/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-48° in Snifter-Pours orangish amber with a big off white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, alcohol, and wheat. Taste of wheat, hops, citrus, and alcohol. This medium bodied brew is not too shabby and not sure what they were going for.

Bought this in one of my favourite bottleshops in the US, Steins Deli in New Orleans .. .hazy dead peach gold .. Decent foam .. Woah-- copper, masking tape, janitor bucket, swamp, and hops from the talkie era .. . Dirty mouth .. Truly off putting and a beer i am having a problem even getting half way with .. . . Did this come out ten years ago?... Tastes like Crocodile Dundee’s Asshole..... After a two week-long walkabout...
