3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice dark golden cloudy (that reminds me Maisels or Schneider Weisse) body with a honest head. Quite present aroma of coriander and buckwheat. Complex but well balanced flavor of fruits (mainly orange), spices and yeast. The final brings some hints of bitterness. This is definitely a non-ordinary 4 season beer you can share with beginner beerophiles.

The body is too cloudy and head is not persistant enough. Taste of spice is heavy but very good. a little bit acid at the end. Good experience and it's a sole beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange amber with a medium diminishing white head. I probably should have let it sit a little longer judging from the 'hazy' descriptions in other ratings - it just came in the mail ~7 hours earlier. Fruity aroma of bubblegum, banana, lots of wheat, coriander, spices, and a hint of pepper. Medium body with lively carbonation. Very easy drinking. Nice flavor of bubblegum, grapefruit, orange, banana, plenty of spice - ginger, clove, cinnamon and pepper to name a few, and lots of wheat. Somewhat earthy and musty. A very good beer. Big thanks to Rastacouere for this one!

Hazy dark orange, small off-white head. Aroma is yeasty with some spices. Flavour was spicy, misty coriander with a short finish. Medium body. Not bad. Bottle.

Hazy golden-amber. Persistent tan head. Aroma of buckwheat, coriander, caramel, bubble gum, & fruit (banana?). Medium feel. Earthy, lightly acidic flavour of buckwheat, coriander & fruit. Perhaps a little phenolic.

Copper/orange in colour with some small floaties. Aroma of fruit, yeast, malts, hops, and citrus. Flavour was cirtusy, hoppy and somewhat musty. Finishes with a medium hop bitterness.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden orange colour, with a LOT of sediment in the bottle. Aroma of fruit and spice dissipates quickly, as does the head. A bit of an interesting flavour up front, but it doesn’t linger. The aftertaste vanishes quickly. I’m wondering if this bottle survived the trip intact. (my friend picked it up for me in June)

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very spicy, a mix of spice that create a flavor explosion in the moutch when you first drink it. The main spice is coriander. Then you get the Wheaty flavor fallowed by the citrus finish. Not bad !

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 Appealing bouquet coming from a dark gold beverage. As it enters the mouth, you feel a mix of spices, definitely coriander, some citrus too that stays in the mouth for some time (you'd wish longer) Overall a very honest light summer beer.
