harrisoni (13286) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle at Chriso pre-GBBF tasting 09. Hazy pale gold, some floaters. Lasting white head. Spicy aroma. Just too spicy, lemon wheaty. It’s horrible.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
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.

argo0 (11351) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 8, 2008
(22oz bottle) Hazy straw body topped by large white head. Aroma is medium sweet, clove, some coriander, pine needles. Taste is medium sweet, coriander, clove, some pepper, light orange. Finishes with ginger. Soft, light medium body. A very unusual lager -- kind of a cross between a saison and a wit.

bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Bomber from the Coop in Davis, CA. Hazy golden color with a decent white head. Aromas of flowers and spice. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is nutmeg? Along with some malt and hop bitter. Ginger? A pleasure to the nose, and pretty tasty in the mouth. Finish is semi-clean.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Bottle from Crown #19. Poured a hazy yellow color with an above average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate lemon citrus and spice aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet&sour flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this refreshing beer to a friend.
