phaleslu (6701) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft at Olives, served in a pint glass. Pours a hazed gold with a small white head. Notes of grassy, floral, spicy hops, caramel and pale malts, lemongrass, and some mellow tangerine-like citrus. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fairly smooth mouthfeel with just a little bitterness. Mild white IPA. Worked for me.

malrubius (1816) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from Save On. Hazy but not cloudy pale gold with white head. Very herbal spicy aroma. Mild fruity sweetness with excessively herbal spice bitter hop and coriander finish. Light body. Not sure if it’s a bad style or just a bad beer. Who would want to drink this? Why not an IPA or a white?

Emeister84 (1084) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Aromas of lime, flowers, and shortbread cookies. Hazy yellow-orange with a mostly fading white head. Off-dry, fruity, floral, and a slight bit bitter. Light bodied, smooth, and refreshing.

Fresh hoppy fruit scents and some floral white grape aromas. Light white head and hazy dark golden body. Fresh hops, dry citrus and wheat. Dry but refreshing on the palate

emacgee (4096) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2013
Pours a soft golden yellow with one finger of fizzy white head. Nose is weird, smells like spicy citrus gone overripe. I get combative yeast esters and hop bitterness with some old orange juice. Not appealing. Getting similar flavors. A touch soapy and definitely on the overly spicy/hoppy side (compounding of the two probably, especially in conjunction with the yeast character). Overripe orange flesh. Kind of a mess. Very dry and kind of sharp.

islay (1211) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 8-15-13. Labeled as "New Holland White Hatter WPA." Interesting aroma features champagne, white wine, white grape juice, green grape, green apple, and cleaning product scents. Unique smell. Pours a pale gold / straw with a moderate amount of thick, uneven, off-white head. Produces extensive, frosty lacing. Juicy, tangy, dry taste features a white vinegar flavor. Lower on flavor than I would prefer. Dry aftertaste. Medium body. Frothy in the palate.

Hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is mild hops and coriander. Flavor is mild fruity hops with spices. Notes of coriander and white pepper. Dry finish. Wife: 3.9

jgb9348 (4816) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a copper glow and a thin, half centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed, grass, flowers, apricots, pears, bubble gum, anise and a hint of earth - very nice and complex. Medium-bodied; Pungent light hoppiness with a good bitter kick at the end, some coriander seed freshness, a bit of yeast and wheat, some light curacao and lemon notes and a dry, grassy and herbal finish. Aftertaste quite complex with the dry and grainy flavours really coming through and a hint of bitterness still noticeable from the hops. Overall, a good blend of a wit and an APA - not horribly hoppy, but dry and grassy, showing the wit side, and very nice for the summer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Lebanese Taverna Market in Arlington (thanks Kev!), Virginia on 26-June-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 20-July-2013.
