1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
11.2 ounce bottle from Vintage Wines in Harrisonburg, VA, opened 5/6/11. Pours a hazy orange color with lots of carbonation and a large fizzy head that faded fairly quickly. Aroma of overwhelming corn and creamed corn, some other grainy notes and a bit of skunk. Very faint hops in the finish. The taste is bitter spicy hops and corn. Some citrus notes in there as well but this is pretty much like drinking corn. Medium bodied. Highly carbonated. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is grainy and slightly herbal with a hint of apples. The predominant grain is corn which is not good. The appearance is light amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with the corn dominating everything. The palate is smooth. I really wanted to like this one as I am a big believer in biodynamics but there is so much corn here that most malt liquors can’t touch it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33l bottle. Pours a fizzing cloudy light golden body with a fading bubbly white head. Aroma is not to inviting. Has notes of beef-stock, oranges, light citrus, wheat and something that reminds me of fried potatoes. Strange stuff this.. Lively carbonated and has quite a oily mouthfeeling. Flavors are light wheaty with some hints of yeast and a nice malty base. Ends in a light sweet finish. Quite alright, but not much more.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy straw pour with white sparkling head. Clean and lightly spiced almost like oragepeel zest, white pepper. Flavor is very sweet, but not cloyingly so. Almost like oversweetened lemonade? lavendar. Very bubbly. Not sure what to think about this. But I’m pretty sure it reminds me of a mix between a kolsch and a wit.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 2/28/11 from a 330mL bottle . Pours hazy bright orange with an average white head that recedes quickly to a bubbly collar of lace. The nose is wheat and grain malt with light cereal and some nuttiness. The flavor is very similar with tons of grainy cereal malt and just a hint of light hops bitterness. The body is medium and somewhat sticky with lively carbonation and a long nutty and grainy finish.

Bottle, thanks to Beerandblues2. Slightly hazy lemon yellow with a pure white head. Lemon, grain, light fruit, and lots of corn and grain in the aroma. Grainy, sweet, earthy, and very corny. Light fizzy body. Very odd.
