3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle. Slightly hazy, golden body with a creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, spicy and a bit weird. Flavor also starts a bit weird. Fruity, spicy, coriander and something undefined. Feels a bit artificial without necessary be that. Like a freaky, funky Saison? Tastes actually a lot better after a few classes, when I starts to be familiar with the weirdness. None of the flowers are particular strong, but more like sneaking around with your senses.

Bottle pours a cloudy, pale yellow color with a foamy white head. Orange zest and coriander aroma with a faint hint of malt. Flavor is mostly ginger with a few other subtle spices. Interesting, but too much ginger in the flavor for my taste.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy amber with a nice rocky head. Smells of lemon, coriander, crisp malt. Tastes dry with a nice coriander/citrus undertone. Finishes dry and semi sweet. A wonderful beer!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well, it looks like what it is - a lager, with straw colour, and a witbiery haze. Orange, coriander nose with lemon zest and bready pale malts. Very lemon/lime zest flavour. Tangy. Pithy bitterness, probably too much. Some orangey hop notes, doughy pale malts. Interesting brew, but for me some balance issues with too much of the wrong kind of bitterness, overly harsh spicing, and weak malts that couldn’t hope to back it all up.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle from Casa de Oro Liquor. Hazy yellow with a big and fizzy white head. Nose of spice, bananas, carbonated lemonade and citrus. Flavor was lightly spiced with a very refreshing and crisp finish. I really liked this brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(From 8-3-08 sampling, thanks to Thickfreakness for sharing) Murky non transparent yellow with orange rays, light carbonation, odd aroma of menthol, pepper, and nutmeg. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is very weak, has a rosemary note on the end. Odd one.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz. bottle, split with a friend. Consumed on 8-3-08. Pours a clear gold with a touch of orange and a lot of fluffy, white head. Surprisingly yeasty aroma, given the lack of haze. White grape juice, salt, and lemon-sour scents. Smells of the sea. Sweet, simple, and accesible taste. Citrus and coriander flavors. Refreshing. Frothy and fizzy in the palate. Light body. Albino Python White Lager is not bad, but it’s not good either. It’s just not interesting enough for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Thickfreakness for busting out this legendary gem! I heard that he had to make out with a crippled midget stripper with herpes in order to be entered into a lottery to win a shot at this beer. However badly it burns, just know that it was worth it.
Smell is of rosemary and vicks vapor rub. Chock full of bright menthol eucalyptus. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Taste is mild and dry. Bland wheat flavor with more minty, rosemary flavors than anything. Could use a touch more malt flavor and less herbaciousness, but still an interesting brew. Thanks dude!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Pours a fizzy, pale yellow body with a small, bubbly, white head.
Smell: Very aromatic nose here, smelling of pale malts and spicy hops but mainly displaying notes of ginger, peppercorn medley, cloves, citrus zest, flowers, and with a particularly strong note of fresh fennel.
Taste: Pale, pilsnery maltiness with a hint of tangy wheat and a light sweetness. Faint graininess. My my, they really emptied out the spice cabinet here, there’s flavors of ginger, cloves, lemongrass, cracked peppercorns, and a strong, licoricey fennel taste. Spicy hops with a restrained bitterness. Finishes rather crisp, with a lingering licorice and ginger.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Somewhat fizzy carbonation.
Drinkability: Pleasant, spicy lager that’s plenty tasty, though I could use a tad lighter carbonation.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is a little spicy with an odd scent. Color is a pale hazy yellow with good carbonation and ok head. Taste is like the aroma. Stating with a lighter body it goes down a little sharp. Finish is odd, its medinciny and a juniper like taste. I don’t like it at all.
