2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at L’Inox. Pours cloudy pale golden in colour, with minimal white head. Aroma and taste sem like a whitebeer, but with some funk. Can’t say I’ve had anything like it, and not sure I like it...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank on site on September 25, 2009, on tap (20 oz). Dark brown cola, thin head. Aroma of barley malt and sweet nuts. Taste of roasted malty nuts, a little watery, a little alcohol finish. For it’s style, it is too easy to drink!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma contains notes of yeast and brewmash. The flavor is sweet with notes of honey, citrus, and cardemomme, and with a very dry wheaty end.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale peach hue is topped by a gentle off-white ring. Buckwheat honey comes up as the most obvious ingredient once you know it’s in there. Curacao, coriander procure a multi-spiced interesting wit base with limited wheat presence. A bit sticky sweetness, tart old honey bite with interesting clover undertones. Light creamy texture, moderate carbonation. Good take on the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Coriander spiciness and cardamom earthiness to the generally sweet orange-wheat aroma. Opaque milky yellow-tan with low white head that recedes to ring. Orange peel and spices are very apparent in the flavour but never overwhelm the soft wheat character. Pleasant spiciness lingers on the tongue. Mildly tart in the finish. Medium-light body with pleasant, fair carbonation. Sampled at the brewpub with Oakes, Rastacouere and Ungstrup.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy peach juice colour. Pithy (grapefruit), spicy, nutty aroma. Reasonably full body. Lots of pale malt and orange flavour with a kiss of honey and background spiciness. Pleasant, wit-like, summer fare.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Honey, coriander and orange peel hug amorously, draped in herbal, medecinal living sheets. They roll around and smile at each other in the lemony fruitiness, not bothered by the turbid, near-opacity of their murky yellow surroundings.
Lemons tag along the wheat-like cereal character, and offer a very quenching nature. Much less spicy than the aroma, more towards the subtle earthiness, searing dryness and a leaness of body which makes it easy to drink.
Why shy away from eclectic experiences which only wish to pleasure you?
