3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft this beer poured a hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma was musty citrus and pepper. The flavor was tangy, spicy and had notes of pepper, ginger and coriander. A bit musty it turned sweetish towards the long peppery citrus finish. Surprisingly full bodied. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 On tap at the Monroeville John Harvard. Pour is almost orange, cloudy like an unfiltered wheat. Very nice looking with very little head, just a creamy girdle. Aroma of a good spiced wheat beer, lots of spices whamming the olfactory. Initial taste is very spicy also, Comes across like a highly spiced wheat beer of some sort. Very low creamy carbonation. The spices in this brew make it a bit one sided. Leaves a palate that is mostly the taste of coriander. Some pepper can be detected. Cannot taste any fruit or lemon peel in this brew. I like wheat brews but this seems to come across as a wheat imitation. Not nearly as enjoyable as Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere or Yards Saison. You would not know this was a 6.5% beer when drinking it, it is well hidden.
