3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a high, pillowy, white head. The nose is citrus and herbal, with an acetic undertone. Rich on the tongue -- the salt is almost an echo rather than a flavor, and I can sense the peppery bite of spice. The beer foundation to those notes is a solid wheat ale with just a bit of sour and sweet. Just different enough to be eye-opening, and very good.

On tap at SPSBF. Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has an earthy grain note with backing sweetness and light fruit that has a hint of tartness. Flavor is similar with sweet grains throughout and a hint of light tart in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malt, grassy hops, citrus, and some iced tea in the aroma. Flavor is malty with some lemony ctirus. Some hop bitterness and spice in the finish for balance. All in all a really nice effort.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a small white head that recedes to a film. The aroma is bready with a bit of peppery spices. The flavor is subtle with biscuit malts, mild pepper, and a hint of sour grapes. The palate was just a bit thin and watery and the carbonation was weak. Finishes short and unsatisfying. Overall: Might make a good lawnmower beer, as it is--meh

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy orange with no head. Light lemon, some spice in the aroma. Sweet, slight sour, saltiness I’m not used to (but balanced). Tastes of wheat, spice, lemon. Finished with coriander and then some saltiness, like sea salt.
Very pleasant, easy to drink. Definitely different but I like it.

The aroma is citrusy and inviting with spice and yeasty bread as well as hops. The appearance is copper with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a really nice drink.

Pour out of 500 mL bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma has notes of herbs, spice, salt notes, hints of biscuit, bread, yeast, some more salty notes. Interesting. Taste is sweet fruit, caramel, hints of fruity yeast, salty notes with a touch of grass and earth, very sweet honey and vanilla, touch of coconut, finishing sweet. Interesting but odd for the style.
