Pailhead (4414) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2013
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy citrus, orange peel, and a touch of spice Belgian yeast. It’s a transparent dull orange with a small white head that leaves behind a good amount of thin webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate citrus and faint Belgian yeast. The finish has moderate orange peel, light lemon peel, floral notes, and a hint spice. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Cloudy orange gold, light head. Grassy, flowers, honey sweetness. Bitter, sweet with some sourness. Lighter bodied, bit of acidity. Long aftertaste. Quite complex pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2010
On tap @ Rev. Pours cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pepper, and some spice. Good flavor, slight sweet - pepper and spices in the flavor. Good beer, I continue to be impressed.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Tap at rev... Pours a seemingly glowing tangerine orange with a quickly fading frothy white head... Assertive aroma of bright citrus notes, tangerine, and a touch of yeast... Flavors maintain that citrus profile which quickly develops into more of a hoppy earthy drying bitterness with some pepper in the finish. Outside of some prickly pepper, not much else in terms of spice. Carbonation pretty lively which seems to be a common trend... Not bad at all.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2012
Sampled at the brewpub. Cloudy gold. No head. Grass and yeast aroma. This is also a bit buttery as well as the above. This is quite malty and has some nice fruit. A bit of spice puts this over the top. Nice.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2012
I do love me some Spalt. An ale that is spicy from the hops and yeast rather than kitchen-cabinet nonsense. Spicy hop aroma and flavor, going quite dry with a light malty sweetness for balance. Nice stuff. Unnecessarily strong, perhaps.

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours a golden with weaker white head. Aroma has orange, lemon, spices, and grass. Kind of has a bubblegumish impression as well. Taste is quite fruity and is powerful in the orange flavor. Still spicy and grassy while containing something else, I believe clove. Peppery as well. Rather strong aftertaste of oranges and lemon. Medium bodied with a thinner texture. On the sweeter side. Overall, I’m pretty happy with this.

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy medium gold, average white head in our plastic go-cups. Spicy yeasty profile, bready biscuity malts. Solid.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2013
Draft at Mikkeller bar. Blond beer with a white head. Medium carbonation. Nose of herbs and spices. Spicy taste, notes of hoppy bitterness and notes of sourness in the aftertaste.
