On tap @ Congregation Long Beach. Hazy golden pour with a white head. Nose is spicy coriander and sweet malt. Lemon zest, orange peel, and some banana. A touch grassy. Flavor is pleasantly sweet. Good doughy malt. Yeast, banana, and orange. Light coriander, some white pepper, and a hint of lemon and grass. Not bad.

prawlie (1186) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle into a pint glass. Yellow and slightly cloudy, bubbly head that doens’t hang around long. Lovely citrus and spice wit aroma. Nice, smooth, wheat, light citrus, coriander. Very Hoegaarden, but perhaps a little more refined, and more spiced.

3fourths (8238) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy soft gold body with a fine white head and active effervescence. Strong coriander and wheat expression in the nose with a quieter orange peel note. Dandelion, bread and honey malt. The grains of paradise seem more like a generic spice or maybe like anise or some kind of aquavit herb mixture. Herbal and perfumy and soft and creamy and a little sweet and a little acidic and a little soapy.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw, very thick and hazy, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Heavy spiced nose, lots of grains of paradise and coriander.   Spicy and spritzy on the tongue.   Wheaty, thankfully not all that mealy either.   Perhaps a touch at the very finish.   Much spicier and thicker than most.   That’s a nice change.   Strong spiciness, but not bright (if that makes sense).   Becomes more mealy as it warms.   More body than most.   Very respectable, and better than most that’s for sure.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Batch 16: Whitened blonde. Tightly-packed frothy white foam exhibits superb retention. Clean and elegant aromas of cardamom, lemongrass, white pepper, sugar cookie/ginger bread. Faint whiff of airy phenols and flowers. Fine and creamy carbonation. Initially well rounded and slippery with grassy wheat and lemongrass accompanying a pronounced saliva-inducing lactic tartness. Subdued, predominantly floral hops take a backseat to the artful spice medley. Despite their intensity, the tastefully incorporated spices never overwhelm and perfectly compensate for what would otherwise seem like a hollow center. As the tartness gives way to the continuously unfolding spicy richness, a phenolic burst cleanses the palate with a stiff dryness. Highly quaffable due to the sparkling clean attenuation and plethora of elegant subtleties. Wheat-derived twang prevails throughout, though a dainty pils malt toastiness breaks the monotony as it scratches at the tongue and beautifully contrasts with the slicker textures. Some starchiness creeps in as well to augment the body. Finishes potently spicy yet dry and clean as a whistle, with a hint of sugar cookie and lemongrass swirled with a flowery hop signature. It’s always difficult to find a witbier that excites. Most breweries attempting this style tend to cover up the uninspired base beer with excessive spices and foul yeastiness. But this has the huge spice component AND the base beer is rich with detail, nuances, and is cleanly attenuated. And at a very reasonable price of $4 a bomber (not a smashing deal by any means, but much fairer than the vast majority of bombers out there these days), I’ll be quaffing this by the boatload. A positively memorable rendition.
