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.

ajnepple (1995) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pale yellow appearance with a white head. Aroma of crispy hops, lemon zest, banana, orange peel, and bready wheat malts. Similar flavor, adding a clove spice and light herbal bitterness (coriander). Nice carbonated body, smooth and easy to drink with a refreshing finish.

Jrwhitney6 (279) - - MAR 25, 2014
Beer of month club. Pours a very, very cloudy/hazy yellow -like grapefruit juice (not the pink kind). Nose of spices, and maybe even a little scented soap. Taste has some of the spice, but mostly is kinda boring. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

very light bodied beer, has aromas of yeast and slight peppers, the taste is of a bread and yeast but still finishes very smooth and drinkable

SrSilligoose (3223) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
stub bootle just fine pours a nice creamed yellow with big lasting soft soap white head. aroma of uncooked foury dough, soft creamed wheat. faint pear. taste is lemon grass, creamed somewhat soapy wheat. pear sweetness. unique. complex. but some weird flavor combinations. musty old fog forest and a soapy lemon zest. some soft, faint twangy lemon zested and soft banana cream pie as it warms. relatively clean and thirsty quenching or a parched bro. strange. beer. some neat aspects, but too many peculiar flavors. quite different than expected. big props to &e 4 this cred boostin iowa booster shot

I had it on tap. Interesting beer, and even when it wasn’t bad, it tasted a bit too pumpkinish to me
