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.

"Oddly spiced and lightly hopped...not my idea of a good time. Very mellow citrus hops and an odd combo of ginger, herbs and generic tasting sweet malt. Blah..."

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
It has a hazy pale yellow color with lots of super tiny yeast partials floating in it. Up top sits a small one finger thick dull white head. It is thick, creamy and long lasting. This hang time makes for lots of slick spotty lacing all the way down the glass as I drink. The aroma has an odd but pleasant sweet spicy character like ginger and black liquorish. There are no hints of hops, just spice and maybe some light malt. There is a light malt base with a mix of citrus notes, black liquorish/fennel, light ginger notes and some hops. The hops have a complementary spicy, earthy and lightly floral quality it them. The finish is dry with a cool touch of spice lingering on the tongue. The carbonation is light but still quite active on the palate giving it a smooth slick texture.

Pours a golden color with white head. Spice, yeast, and raw wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more wheat.

The color of this beer is a cloudy golden with a large white head and lots of dark sediment floating throughout, and the aroma is a weird blend of bread malts and artificial lemon. The taste is also weird due to how you can taste the artificial lemon through the overall mildly sweet and slightly sour flavor. The mouthfeel combines a medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, sweet yet fairly short finish.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Taste citrus, slightly sweet. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.
