renffisch (760) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
500ml bottle thanks to ethereal, even though i’m not so sure i’m that grateful :-) you guessed it, it wsn’t mine. Gorgeous smell of heavy clove, apples and a lot of spice but thats where the disaster starts. Taste offensive! Strange metallic mix of whey, coriander, earth and water... why?

Fin (7267) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2008
Cask at the Royal Oak Beer Festival, Oakley, Bucks/Oxon border 03-05-08 Hazy warm golden in colour with a white bubbly head. The burnt orange peel in the description is the first thing that I picked up, Loz on the other hand got the cloves immediately. I really liked this though I felt that the spices and particularly the cloves contrived to make this feel quite medicinal. This is really quite interesting, as wheat beers go its not very subtle the citrus is a bit full on at times but I found it very moreish and most enjoyable.

johndoughty (3875) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Slightly hazy with a very definite hoppy bitterness. Some traces of fruitiness. Pleasant and easy to sup.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle from Nelson Wines, shared with renffisch and tashi. Hazy gold appearance as you’d expect. Strong aroma of orange peel, apples and cloves. A bit like sniffing a good applie pie! Orange and coriander are the strongest components of the flavour and the finish is dry with a definite pineapple flavour showing through as well.

downender (6151) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle conditioned. Hazy golden-orange colour with a short-lived, moderate white head. Slightly hazy with plenty of carbonation. Aroma of ginger, coriander mace, yeast and citrus. The flavour had more spice, pineapple and a pine resin, dry finish. Very enjoyable.

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
Bottled. A hazy orange colour looking very much like certain ciders. The aroma has citrus fruit, coriander and hints of ginger. The taste has oranges and tons of spices. Pretty authentic wit taste in my book. Nice tasty and spicy.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2008
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Kris Wines.
Tongue in cheek it may be but it’s actually pretty decent. Cloudy orange yellow with a reasonable perfectly white head. Freshly squeezed orange aroma with a bit of yeast and delicate hints of the coriander showing. The coriander is much more to the fore in the flavour with some slight apple but not in a bad way. Full on citric hop finish. Refreshing and enjoyable.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Bottle at Toms Ultimate Glasgow Tasting : Poured a yellow with a white color head. Aroma is fruity citrus with hops and pine. The taste is fruit with a mild hops finish

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2007
