3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a decent wit, and I enjoy both the name and the label right off the bat. The pour is hazy golden with 2-finger white head. Nose is orange zest, white pepper, hops, pale malt. Flavor is orange zesty, limey, with white pepper, hops, and pale malt. Very smooth and quaffable from beginning to end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Poured clear, very pale golden with lots of rising carbonation and a fizzy cap of white head. The aroma was decidedly spicy, but I had trouble placing ’em.. some mint, spruce, and jasmine perhaps?.. sweet backing of pale malts and honeysuckle.. interesting. The flavor followed suit with bright, lively spices first and foremost (think I may be on to something with the spruce).. minty and refreshing finish.. pale backing left a little honey at the end. Medium-bodied and again spicy on the palate.. high carbonation made it a little hard to drink at times.. still quite an experience overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow golden with a thin, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of fresh ground coriander, orange zest and some white pepper. Body starts effervescent and lightly sweet and pretty heavily spiced with some bitterness from the spices near the finish. Pretty decent pseudo-witbier/spiced ale.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.
My god. Sorry guys but I thought this was really bad. Lemon yellow with a thin white head. Stale vegetables and farrrrrr too spicy. I really can’t drink this without pulling a face. Very medcinal in the finish. Dumped.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at the Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a hazy gold/straw color with bright white head and some nice cobweb lacing. Cool looking brew. The aroma starts with some sweetness that has an apple angle to it. Then it becomes lemon, hay and a bit of sweet and tart cherry candy. The taste rises up quickly with mild tartness, apple sweetness, some building malt sweetness and noble hop bitterness. The noble hop notes grow to midway and into the finish along with lemon, mild ginger and residual zestiness. Great full flavored hot weather brew.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. The bottle had a 2-inch layer of yeast at the bottom. Hazy amber beer with a cream colored head. Mineral and light spice aroma with a bit of dirt. Strange ginger spice flavor with malt and some pineapple. Medium body. Pineapple lingers with mineral notes, grain, and ginger.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle. Jasper, AB, Canada.
Hazy orange colour with small off-white head.
Mint (toothpaste), herbs, malt, some spices and some toffee sweetness in aroma.
Spices, mint, herbs, malt, pepper, subdued bitter hops and some toffee sweetness in flavour. Quite interesting brew allthough the toothpaste in aroma and flavour causes some mixed feelings.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice phallic label art! I wasn’t sure what to make of this beer. Is it trying to be a witbier? It is quite spicy with some ginger, coriander and citrus notes, but the malty sweetness comes over the top and kills it. I didn’t hate it, but I don’t think I’d go back for more.
