Orange, not terribly hazy. Little/no head. Aroma is of orange, light citrus, coriander. Flavor is clean and dry, moderately grassy and earthy. Good spice presence.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gloomy pear hued. Sandy, dense white foam. Crackery aroma with notes of coriander, cream, straw, and citrus. Hints of clove, dough, candle wax, melon, honey, herbs, and delicate floral noble hops. Yeasty and musty. Expansive creamy carbonation. Medium-light bodied. Starts tangy and citrus with some fresh hop flavors alongside notes of flowers and citrus. Empty finish of artificial sweetener and softened phenols. Lingering earthy noble hop presence with a touch of doughy pale malts and faint peppery undertones. Yet another boring and unimaginative wit, completely devoid of body and character.

Oregon Brewers Fest. Cloudy with a light golden color. Spicy, floral scents. The spices are well balanced on the palate and although somewhat light in flavor, it's still very complex. A nice summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
surprisingly milky golden, the color a whitewashed wall turns in the angled light of evening. head was as attractive and attention getting as a tight-shirted pair of bra-less perkies. aroma of a very well-sanded spruce board, or like the inside of an acoustic guitar, a bit of coriander and some green produce such as celery and bell pepper, light flowery notes like lingering perfume on a thin summer dress. very quenching grassy toast flavors appropriately awash in doughy yeasts and hints of orange. i'm not real ga-ga about the wit style, but i give this quencher at least one "ga" for sure.
