GarrettB (998) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
September 10th, 2012 - My second birthday beer of the night was the White Ale. The smell reminds me of a strange mixture of plantains or unripe bananas, but then an ester heavy scent of artificial banana flavoring, like in the American candy Laffy Taffy. There’s also a clove note, but it seems to be more of an afterthought than a scent welded into the bouquet. The foretaste is spicy, with chili and pepper that peak at the beginning of the sip, but last through to the aftertaste, when this white ale curiously becomes a melody of peppered salami and the flavor of grilled corn husks. Strange flavors, though not entirely disagreeable.

Floback (523) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2014
On draft at the brewery/restaurant. Lovely hazy orange body with an inch of fluffy white head that retains well. Thick, sifting cascades of lacing on the glass. Nice nose of citrus and cream. Flavors include vanilla, herbs like coriander, orange peel. Medium carbonation and light body. Excellent white! Very refreshing and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
