3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Cakey spices abound in this creative take on a Weizen, as clovey phenolics met cardamom and lush wheat.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy white.
-Eggy, sulphury angles were found in the nose, but never were bothersome.
-Flavor profile is a tad sweeter than your average Weizen. Better attenuation (and quieter spices) might make this more drinkable.
-This is quite powerful in the flavor department for a "Blanche". I’d like to know how the typical lover of the style/colour reacts after trying it.
-Carbonation is fierce, helping the spices in appearing restrained in the flavor profile. They are quite prominent in the aroma though. Perhaps too much so?
-I’m looking forward to trying this from a bottle. Might even express itself better.
On tap at the Mondial.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (341ml) courtesy of GregClow. Pours a hazy yellow/pale gold with a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of grain, chili pepper (oddly enough), pepper, wheat, citrus fruit and floral and herbal notes -- it’s somewhat odd and not great. Flavour of citrus first followed by wheat, herbs & spices. A bit watery. Average bodied. Odd aroma, slightly dull flavour and not on style -- just O.K.

Appearance: hazed , almost milky golden ale with medium white cap.
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: lighter in body. Plenty of ginger in this one , slight citrus on top, soft yet watery finish. Refreshing mildly tart brew. Bit more of body would not hurt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Veiled pale gold topped by a lasting white hat. Citrusy (lime) and tea-like, herbal, spicy nose with chamomile, cardamome and ginger notions. Abundant carbonation lends a mineral, slightly acidic side that blends nicely with the citric aspects to make for a quenching ensemble despite the fair amount of residual sugars that bring it more into lemonade territories. Light on the palate with watery edges. A nice hybrid tweak that I’d prefer with slightly increased yeast character and a bit more subtlety on the spices, but already a fine refreshing summer ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy pale yellow color ale with a large foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of coriander and light orange peel is satisfying with an OK wheat malt base. Taste is also a nice mix between some wheat malt with notes of spices including coriander. Body is a bit fuller then average with good carbonation. Nothing earth shattering but nicely drinkable.
