Bottle from Beer world Kingston.... A nice lightly cloudy all day drinking ale. The pleasant hop alternates from yeast to hop and hop to yeast dominance several times during the delightful time frame of consumption. too bad its so damn pricey per bottle.

Bottle @ home picked up at Mile High Liquor Denver. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a nice, full khaki head. Quite potent, spicy and fresh, herbal, chewy herbal yeasty, just a touch citrusy aroma. Carbonation is a bit strong and zippy. Potent grassy, very herbal, fairly dry grainy flavor. Maybe a bit of citrus, but mostly a grassy, herbal flavor. Interesting and pretty tasty.

It’s hazy warm golden with a huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of wild mint. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of herbs, wild mint, malt, flower and the finish is slightly dry.

Gusher. It actually is a pretty solid beer. Mild bitterness, pleasant bready malts, English yeast character and some grapefruit,

Paid $5.90 for a 500ML bottle @ Bier Cellar, Portland, ME. Had to pour extremely slowly with the large, foamy head slowly gushing from the bottle as soon as the cap was popped. Weizen glass shows a hazy straw color with large amounts of carbonation. Aroma of hay, grass and citrus hops. Tastes just like it smells with an effervescent mouthfeel. Light malt provides a base to the grassy, citrus dry-hopping. Texture has a drying effect. Really unique and a bit odd; yet still has a refreshing quality.

500 ml bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, lemon zest and floral notes. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, lemon zest and floral notes with a crisp dry lingering floral finish.

New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($5.50): Pours a slightly clouded orange colour with a relatively loose white head. Aroma is king of musky and earthy: reminds me of some other beers, but I cannot exactly remember which ones. Taste is lightly hoppy, in a way similar to a rather restrained pilsner. A weird German version of a pale ale. Nothing all that great though. Reminds me a bit of a kellerbier or altbier.
