3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2008 Pours a light cloudy straw color with nice carbonation and little to no head. The nose is of malt and citrus with a light touch of sweetness comparable to honeysuckle. The flavor is of bread dough and spice, perhaps some clove along with light citrus. Very light and clean on the finish with just a slight hoppiness. The taste and palate do not deliver what the nose promises but still nice. Overall a decent summer beer.

Smells very much like Blue Moon, with cloves and butter. Aroma has light citrus and coriander. Refreshing and light body, but tastes good enough. Lightly bitter herbal finish. Cloudy yellow.

Bottle: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Aroma, coriander, citrus, light bready notes. Flavor, wheat, citrus, some coriander again, some yeasty/bready notes. Smooth, with a bit of a floral quality towards the end, not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, whitish yellow pour. Pungent aroma of pimento spiced salami and adhesive. Definitively different. Notes of wheat and orange under the salty topsoil. Green olive hints pervade the flavor to a similar degree. A quiet hint of coriander shoots for the standard a little. Apple tartness. Fruity esters of pear and pineapple. Starts to get a little sweaty with warmth. Yeast puts a word in. Clean palate, with a bit of sourness that slowly sharpens. A unique, kind of peculiar example.

Not bad... Pours hazy straw into the glass with an initially decent head.... sudsy lace. This stuff looks like liquid smoke, no kidding. The yeast hangs in a cloud in the middle of the brew. Pumpkin pie spices and yeast to the nose. The flavors are light, a bit dry, and of yeast and spices. Crisp dry mouthfeel and a spicy finish let this go down easily. Good carbonation levels accentuate the body (light and zesty). Nice for a hot summer night.

Pale gold color pour. Very spicy nose but the flavor is considerably lighter. Pretty good stuff.

Just a little heavy handed with the coriander. Nice beer, though. I would choose this over the lighter and less interesting blue moon. More of everything. Ugly label. Good beer.

I thought this one smelled a bit better than it tasted - nice swet, spicy floral aroma. While the flavor wasn’t bad, it seemed a flinty and harsh. Seemed almost more like an American Wheat with a few Belgian characteristics. But I enjoyed it, for the most part.
