thanks nhorween. pale peach color. disgusting yeast chunks flying around. heady/foamy. smells just like the Hopfen. really flat. not a ton of wheat character. i’m actually liking it despite not having anything specifically positive to say about it.

750 via trade with Brewsandbbq. Pours orange with a 2 finger tan head. Nose is hoppy sweet, with some candi sugar and a touch of wildness. Taste is incredibly smooth and nicely sweet. Very balanced and quite nice. Gotta say this is good. Ithaca has been good to me and gotta say this does not disappoint.

2007 bottle, from Premier. Drank 9/08. Light gold w. slight haze. Thin white head. Nose is yeasty lemon, a kind of earthy brett funk, a little malt & alcohol. Flavor is light malt, a nice amount of yeast, slight bitter funk. A bit sweet in the finish.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a huge, thick, foamy, creamy white head. Aroma of orange, melon, lots of citrusy goodness. Flavor is quite similar, lots of citrus fruits and a spicy tang in the finish. Very flavorful and tasty. Nice beer.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of really nice sweet citrus and tropical fruit tones. Spiciness comes out more and more upon warming. Flavor ctirus with spices and sort of weird grains. Dry, bitter finish. Pretty good.

VERY HAZY YELLOW, NOSE IS SPICY, AND CITRUS WITH SOME BREADY NOTES flavor is wheat, citrus and sweet flavors, as beer warms it getts too sweet basicaly cloying and couldn’t finish.

A nice and drinkable Belgian strong. This one is heavy on the spices and hides the alcohol perfectly. Congrats for pulling this off...most don’t. Aroma was yeasty and fruity. Pour was a medium orange with a huge bubbly 4 finger head. Taste was very peppery and spicy. Yeast and spices dominate with a nice mouth drying sweet aftertaste. Well done.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2008
750ml Bottle (Batch E! 005): Aroma of grass, herbs, yeast, light fruits(peace & apricot), biscuity malts and light spices. Poured yellow/gold/light orange with a hint of peach in color and a large off-white head that shrank but lasted. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Small lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet, but overall is quite tame. Tastes of yeast, grass, herbs, white pepper, hops, and a bit of citrus. Medium body. Thinish, gritty texture. Lively carbonation. Finish is very lightly sweet and very dry.
