3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Colter Bay in Buffalo. Iím a big Long Trail fan, but I gotta say, this is the worst of the Brewmaster series so far, IMO. Perhaps itís just cause Iím not as big a fan of the style as I am of the coffee stouts. It had a nice yellow pour with a decent head. Taste was slightly fruity, but overwhelmingly spicy at the end. Citrus, coriander, pepper. The finish started to get offputting after awhile, and I quit after 2 pints. I might drink it again if itís the best beer available, but Iím not going to rush out and buy a bomber of it.

a really nice white ale, the only knock is the color is very clear, not hazy like most white ales. great citrus and coriandor zest and some spice, not like allagash, but its there. great finish, went down very easy and begged for another sip, would love to do it again.

22oz capped bottle, thanks Tom. Cloudy hay yellow with tight creamy lookin white head. Really medicinal citrus cleaner like nose. Bright citrus, soapy cleaner, lavender, orange peal, coriander. Really good and the only knock is that it is a bit soapy; but I really like this.

22 oz. bomber. Pours kinda of a hazy yellow. Nice to have a white in the winter. Too much perfume taste in this beer hurts it. Decent for the money though.

Draught at Brazen Head. Poured a totally flat, headless and lifeless cloudy urine color, but thatís probably a result of a dodgy tap. Aromas of wheaty malt, lemon, orange and spices. Sweet and flowery honey, orange and lemon flavors laced with a complex herbal package--coriander for sure, but also maybe fennel seed and ginger as well. Reminiscent of the Coney Island Albino Python. For some reason this one really kicked me in the head booze-wise. Too strong and busy for a session Wit, and too light and citrusy for a winter specialty ale, but an interesting concoction nonetheless.

pours a light golden color reminiscent of apple juice. There is a small disappearing white head and no lacing. Aroma is orange peel, peach, pineapple, jolly-rancher and yeast. Taste is slightly bitter but very well balanced overall. citrus notes and other fruits compliment yeast presence. Finishes soft but very pleasant. A fairly simple but happy and satisfying beer.

Another beer-basket gift from Bob--danke! Dark, malty-looking body frames a strange picture in a weisen tumbler.... body is rather clear with a foamy off-white head... fruity yet medium-bodied, somewhat malty fragrance--a bit off in some respects... thin, swift texture.... average effervescence.. chewy when held between the back teeth... an odd amalgamation of malt and wheat--defintely a unique attempt at a "winter" brew--an empty, almost lagerish aftertaste leaves the experience rather flat.... Long Trailís beers tend to have a light, fizzy presence; I applaud their attempt to produce something more substantial... not sure how this would session--I like my winters a bit more complex...

Cold 22oz bottle: Pours a cloudy bright lemon yellow color with a big, fluffy alabaster head that slowly diminishes and leaves lots of lacing inside the glass. Aroma is of nice malts and spicy yeast with distinctive lemon citrus. Taste is of nice malts and yeast well blended with lemon citrus. Crisp, light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Ending is of spice, lemon and sweet malt notes.
