wmubronco1992 (614) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy apple cider color. Large long lasting white head. Aroma is of wheat and orange zest. Delicate grapefruit flavor. Iím not sure I love the combo of white & IPA, but I agree that it seems to work pretty well in this beer.

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Nice beer. Good balance of Belgian yeast and hop aromas. Cloudy golden and dirty yellow colors with a good white foamy head. Crisp, clean and full palate with sustainable carbonation. Strong flavors to make this work. Spiciness from the yeast and grains complemented by the bitterness that leaned toward the citrus and piney end. Good.

ARH (400) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap poured into a shaker. The aroma is primarily citrus, some bubblegum, and white grape juice. Thereís a bit of a grass / resin note too. Itís a clear, yellow-orange beer with a foamy head. The head retention is decent with a creamy, puffy layer and fairly thick ring. It leaves, initially, a healthy, thick lacing for most of the drink - although about half way through, itís fairly sparse. It tastes medium bitter with a light sweetness to complement. A moderate amount of soft, but fizzy carbonation is noticeable on this medium bodied beer. The texture is kinda creamy, but on the thinner side. Lemon and grapefruit rind finish the drink, with a light resin, dry touch. The grapefruit sticks around in the aftertaste, but more of the rind / membrane, along with a fresh-cut grass. The aftertaste is not very long or strong, and itís relatively cleansing.

Jamesthebrit (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2014
Aroma is nice. Notes of coriander. Orange peel. A fruit lemon note. Almost a lemon lime orange thing going on. Appearance is nice. A good hazy orange color, nice white head. Taste is like the smell. Coriander is strong, some citrus notes. There are some hops in there that I think combine with the coriander to give it a dull finish. Light on the palate but hop bitterness comes through a bit unbalanced. Overall not a bad beer. The smell is the star with the taste being a little less balanced.

Pours a hazy copper with a foamy white head. Has a nice aroma that blends sweet yeast with citrus and hops. The flavor is a little more muddled, with a low hop profile, some carbonation, and an odd mix of sweet yeast and tangy citrus. Overall Iíd say I enjoyed this unique brew, but it could benefit from a smoother blend of its elements.
