I poured this from a bomber into an imperial pint glass, foregoing my New Holland High Gravity Series tulip since it only holds eleven ounces and I was not sharing. It settles well, with a typical white ale cloudiness and pillow like white head. The aroma is mostly spice, coriander in particular, with resinous hop undertones. It is difficult to detect much else behind the strong spiciness, which also overwhelms the taste. The mouth feel is creamy and soft, presumably from the oats. While I do not plan to revisit this year’s edition, I may try it again next year in case the spice is dialed back.

12oz bottle. Very attractive spicy aroma. Well blended and complex flavors. A surprisingly nice white that I could drink a lot of.

thedm (5067) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUN 24, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated hazy dark orange brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Pour on tap at Busters on 28th, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, grape, fruity esters, some spice, touch of earth, biscuit, bread into some slight dough. Taste was a mix of orange, white grape, some grass into bread, some spice, finishing slightly bitter.

Tap @ Taphouse at Ghent - Norfolk: What I like about this one is that they did their Belgian yeast thing, but then they put enough hops into it where it all just stays there in a big pile of uniqueness and tasty flavors. Very nice. Thank you New Holland for all you do for Michigan and the rest of us who don’t live there.
