2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Poured cloudy pale gold with a quickly dissipating small white head. Aroma and flavor were dominated by a very strong, very odd spice profile: is that sage?! Also some coriander, citrus rind, licorice. Watery palate.

Bomber pours a cloudy yellow with a white head. Aromas of orange pale malts spices like coriander and lemon zest. Flavor is slightly sweet. Body is light and finish is semi sweet.

Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a well-hazed gold with a sticky white head. The nose is nice, showing some citrus and mint notes and a floral quality in addition to the spicy yeast and bready wheat. On tasting, the mint notes are more prominent, as well as some white pepper. Light tartness, almost like rose hips as well. Really tasty beer, this one.

Cloudy, white-gold with a big fluffy head. OK label and an interesting cap. Big, sweet, fruity tangerine aroma with health food store spices. Chemical, dry, starch water flavors with a little pepper at the end. Aftertaste reminds me of the way a new pair of sneakers smells - plastic, rubbery. Underwhelmed. New Leaf Market.

4/16/12. 12oz bottle. Clear golden pour (huh?) under a small off-white head that’s gone fast. Super spiced aroma, way too much coriander, with hints of citrus. Sweet citrus taste with orange and even touches of lime, again with bold spice character. Eh.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark golden-orange with a slight white head - light lacing. Fruit forward aroma with lemon and tangerine and a hint of yeast. Refreshing flavor, some lemony citrus notes, a touch of saffron spiciness, a touch of licorice. Mouthfeel has a very nice spritz to it. A nice summer refresher.

Had a chance to try this at the NYC craft beer festival. It does tend to be a polarizing beer. Definitely stands out as unique. Crisp, light refreshing, orange rind, coriander, grass. Finishes clean and has a slight sweetness to it.

Tart and fizzy with a white head. Citrus, banana, grass, yeast, and a lot of carbonation. Not bad, but not a standout.

Tasted at the NYC Craft Beef Festival. Hazy yellow pour, the nose caught me off guard. Smells like skunky, crystallized weed! Also some fennel, Good and Plenty candy, anise, yeasty, very complex!!! It’s light bodied with flavors of fresh mown grass, mint, sage, mouthwash (but in a good, herbal way) Very different and out of the box.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Lighten up people. This is the strangest beer ever, but I like to think of it as "unique"! Even though I usually drink Barley Wines, Quadrupels and Imperial Stouts, this lighter beer is one of my favorites because it also has so much flavor.
It tastes like tea (white or yellow) with lemon and a touch of honey. Doesnt taste like a beer at all, light, pale yellow grey color. Has undertones of coriander, malt, hay and caramel. Earthyness and freshness similar to French Verveine tea. It has very little body, but enough maltyness, fruityness and texture to make it interesting on the palate.
