3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a light white head, only about one centimetre tall. Aroma of pale malt, coriander seed, curacao, grass and tons of nutmeg. Light-bodied; Strong yeastie and spicey flavour with a very pungent twang of sourness and a crisp wheat flavour. Aftertaste is quite complex with some almost brett like flavours, some light orange and spicey flavour, a hint of grass and hay and a very nice sour twang. Overall, much better than I expected and a very nice interesting beer with great complexity and a flavour profile close enough to the style, but far enough away to make it interesting. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York on 26-December-2012 for US$4.99 sampled at home in Washington on 04-May-2013.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a dull cloudy pale straw yellow with very thin white head that was gone after the first sip and left no lace at all. The aroma has a strong grassy aroma with lemon and orange notes. The flavor is a bit odd and reminds me more of a shandy than a wit, especially when palate is taken into account. Lots of lemon with a little coriander and some wheat grain. Spritzy carbonation more reminiscent of a soda than a beer. Not a fan.
