3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours straw yellow with almost no head. Aroma of light lemon and a bit of honey. Taste is like a spiced wit, tastes like halls cough drops (lemon). Actually pretty good even though it tastes a bit medicine-y. Worth trying, especially since its not expensive. Better to try in the summer or on a warmer day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, rich orange-amber pour, minimal fizzy white head with some slight retention. Very strong spicy aroma, lots of coriander and ginger--reminiscent of a ginger ale, actually. Ginger is also quite prominent on the palate, along with noble hops and pepper. Long, gingery finish. Much fuller mouthfeel than I had been expecting and good, even carbonation. Held my interest. All in all a curious but quite pleasant beer, a bit dirty and garish perhaps but then again so is Coney Island...I also enjoyed the rather naughty label.

Aroma is of corn and spices. Appears a cloudy, golden yellow with a thick, bubbly head. Very apparent flavors of Ginger, barley, and maybe some carrot. Thin palate. Overall not horrible.

Not bad. Decent malt character, some citrus and cloves. Maybe too phenolic, same off flavors present here as in their pilsner.

Pours orange. If someone didn’t show me the bottle I would have thought it was a wheat. Was interesting to taste spices in a lager for a pleasant change. Would drink again. Very cool bottle too.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, no date I could find which may be an issue. I have had the bottle in cool dark storage for about two months.
Poured hazy golden color, quite a bit of frothy head that dissipated quickly to next to nothing. Aroma didn’t give me anything. No spices, maybe a little beer like smell, but nothing much. Taste was similarly disappointing. Little hints of spice, but muddled and not able to identify. Somewhere mid sip, I get a strange flavor that reminds me of potpourri or almost like a lip balm...waxy, vaguely fruity. Very odd. Not highly carbonated, slight tingle. Slight bitter after taste.
Not quite sure what to make of this. Reminds me of a witte but not getting the coriander and citrusy hops. Middle of the road is best I can do on this bottle, might try again to confirm the findings, but pretty unimpressed. At best an average plain lager from this particular pour.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint glass from bottle. A: carrot and cinnamon with slight ginger. App: medium golden with a 2 finger creamy, white head with nice lacing. T: pine, apricot, honey, lavender, lemon grass, and slight anise (licorice). P: low bubbles, but smooth and medium linger of slight ginger. Not my taste preference, but for the style, is very, very well done.

Buenísima white beer con levaduras de baja fermentación, es una pena que sea difícil de conseguir. Es aromática, estos aromas se acentúan progresivamente desde que la sirven. En boca te explotan las especias y deja un retrogusto herbal muy agradable. Con la pastorianus hemos topado
