Bottle. A- Cloves, coriander, pepper, spices, lemons, wheat, funk. A- Golden color, clear liquid, minimal head. T- Tons of spices, coriander, cloves, wheat P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, spiced finish. O- I liked this beer and I didnít like this beer. A bit of funk on the aroma and heavy on the spice. The palate was very spice forward as well. Other than being a little strong it was a pretty good wheat. Certainly not a favorite, but drinkable.

12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Although, couldnít you have found one of those neate swing-tops in the photo? Pours a hazed pale yellow with a bone white head. Notes of wheat, banana, straw, coriander, dried apricot, and grass. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a dry, wheaty mouthfeel. Good job to Millstream and the Johnís Grocery Bier Guy on this one!

12oz bottle, picked up from Brennanís during my stay in Madison for GTMW. Shared with local beer guys. Totally hazy whitish yellow color. Thin white head. Some lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of creamy, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Good herbal, kind of zesty aroma. Mild spice, more of a nice herbal aroma. Nice belgian wit yeast. Moderate sweet taste, kind of zesty, lighter bitter. Pretty impressive white ale. A lot better than expected, definitely above average.

rondphoto (2269) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 27, 2014
bottle @ Johnís Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Cloudy lemon color with lots of tiny sediment dots, thin head cover, small loops of lace. Taste and aroma are both wheat and spices, joined by orange and lemon citrus deep in the palate. Easy to drink, reasonable.

fiveacestx (634) - Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle - bright yellow and cloudy pour with a medium head. There appears to be some sort of sediment floating around in the beer (is that supposed to be there?!). Light hint of lemon peel taste. Medium body and sweet and dry on the finish.

Hazy yellow with withe head. On tap at the Cedar Rapids airport. Aroma of citrus, banana and spice with a little pine. Favorable and bitter, like the Aroma. Kick this up a couple ABVs and it would be awesome...

12oz bottle 9/28/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-Pours a murky yellow with a white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, and coriander. Taste of the same with spices coming more forward on the back end. This light bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth.
