2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I had Cisco Grey Lady at Franks Italian restaurant in New York.
The appearance is a cloudy yellow with a thick, airy white head. The aroma is light and spicy with some sugar syrup. The flavor is sweet, almost mimicing a shandy. I did not enjoy this beer at all.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Reviewed 6/1/2009 (bottle 53degF):
Pours a very clear, very pale yellow colored body, looks like a cider. Small wispy head, white in color, very quickly diminishing. Effervescent aroma once swirled, some citrus and light fruit, like pear. Some funkiness too. Some funky taste, drying. Malty sweet, with a pretty clean finish. Not very flavorful. Waiting to warm. Funky fruity flavors, not my thing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is deceptive. Mostly yeast and bread. The thing looks terrible. Very cloudy brownish yellow. Then you taste it. All kinds of things come at you at once. Spices, citrus fruit, banana (that’s a fruit, right). Very dry refreshing finish. Very good.

22oz bottle. Bright yellow, clear. White fizzy head with big carbonation. Spicy aroma. Not peppery, but sweet. Big coriander, some lavender, lemon, honey, sweet roasted corn on the cob. Flavor is a bready body. Full alt character. Some honey flavors as well. Medium body. A nice American Wit. 13 sept 08

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a murky yellow with heavy orange tints when held to a light source, thin head disappeared within one minute, hearty carbonation of tiny bubbles. Aroma of oranges, yeast, wheat, malt, and notes of coriander and pepper- very, VERY, interesting! Hits the mouth with a high-thin-body, malt is there but you are taken for a journey to the land of sweet fruit (young pineapple and mangos come to mind), middle continues that journey just fine, finish thanks you for the sip you have just taken and gives you a token to take another sip along with a note of lavender (that’s harder than HELL to create, trust me) along with a solid, crisp finish. The Granholm and OBAMA voters give it a 5, but I give it a 9 !!! It is near perfect for the style, if you don’t agree, please ship one in the top 10 to me. Thank you. You will get nothing back.

Bomber - Pours a golden amber in color with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma is medium of bready yeast and somewhat malty sweet with spices and citrus. Flavor is quite citrusy with plenty of bready yeast and coriander spiciness. Finish is somewhat malty sweet. I like this...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Barcade: Hazy golden with a fading white head. Evident coriander in the aroma- bright with a lemon like citrus note and clean wheaty character. Light & crisp body- flavor has apparent Wit spices of lavender and coriander. Dryish, not much residual sugars. Decent example, just simple.
