1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Pours straw yellow with a faint haze and fizzy white head. Aroma has light banana and faint citrus. Flavor has some oddness going on.....almost taste like it has a hint of nutmeg, coriander, faint banana with a dirty, earthy, astringent finish that lingures. Watery with high, fizzy carbonation. Overall, I did not enjoy this. Not sure what it is about this brewery but I have not liked anything I have tasted from them.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Quite definitively the worst beer I’ve ever had, including my own terrible homebrews. Tastes like Martha Stewart’s bathroom potpourri basket.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
You know what’s cool? Craft Beers in cans barely even raises an eyebrow anymore. I saw several, and i didn’t even dawn on me that this was in a can. Real step forward, if you ask me. Anyway, citrusy, perfumey, oddly soapy. Fairly typical, but I liked it.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can - pour is a clear apple cider color - fizzy - kicks up a head that disappears completely within seconds looks nothing like a wit, but it doesn’t taste or smell like one, either, so at least they’re consistent - aroma of peaches, citrus vanilla and strongly overdone chamomile - kind of smells like a scented candle, really - tastes is lightly bitter and moderately sweet - thin flavor - mostly citrus, chamomile and a soapy hop character at the end - tastes like herbal tea - this is full of fail - the second beer I’ve tried from this brewer and likely my last.

12 ounce can. Poours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of florals, wheat, and citrus. Taste is malt, florals, wheat, spices, and citrus. Interesting take on a Witbier.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can pours like a pale lager and tastes no better, though perhaps more interesting. Aroma is floral, pleasant if a little too potpourri. Very thin.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20

Aroma is chamomile, flowers, light citrus, spicy wheat malt, grains of paradise, and earthy yeast. Flavor is light malt, huge spices and flowers with very low hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium-light carbonation.

Can at TPSA. This says it has chamomile, curacao, coriander, and grains of paradise in it. I will have to take their word for it on the last three, because drinking it was like being run over by a truckload of chamomile. Nose is floral -- chamomile. Tastes like chamomile tea. It’s good, just be aware than when they say chamomile -- they are NOT kidding.
