COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian style white ales have a long history of unique ingredients, as brewers experimented with spices discovered during the spice trade. For our hazy brew we found a refreshing combination of crisp wheat, the tangy sweetness of tangerine & orange peel, and the subtle spiciness of coriander & grains of paradise. Cheers!

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a cloudy, dark gold with minimal head. Aroma of corriander and orange citrus. Taste is light sweet. Citrus and...this tastes like fucking fruity pebbles. I cant get that out of my head and now its all i taste. Light bodied with a relatively thick texture. Lively carbonation but not too long of a finish. Overall, not bad. Reminds me of how a blue moon should taste.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy orange with a two finger white head that fades into a ring of bubbles after a minute or so leaving a slight amount of lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and biscuits with a bit of hops in the background. Taste is dulled down citrus (orange and tangerine), biscuits, malts and a hint of hops. This would certainly benefit from a boost in the citrus flavor. I hate to say it, but I would recommend adding a slice of orange to the glass when drinking. Abrupt finish with a very slight malt aftertaste. Thin palate but a decent body and average carbonation. Not bad, but not great either. Certainly not an exemplary white ale, but blows the macro Blue Moon types out of the water.

Keep passing this up in the grocery store but it keeps calling me back. This is a smooth yet slightly hoppy ale with hints of orange in the finish. Only available in the STL metro area in a variety pack. This would be a good beer to drink with grilled fish glazed in a citrus marinade/tropical fruit salsa and cilantro.

Moderate coriander and maybe allspice aroma. Hazy yellow color with a small white head. Sweet beginning that fades in the finish. Palate is thick in the end.

My last new bottle to try in the 2012 spring variety pack. Poured into pint glass a hazy orange-tinged golden color with white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast and citrus spices. Taste is much the same adding coriander and other spices. Light body, moderate carbonation, yeasty sweet finish. Refreshing and easy drinking.

Bottle. Has a warm and wheaty taste and aroma. Smooth and mellow overall, but a bit boring. I swear I’d assume it would’ve had a higher score. Solid brew, can’t hardly taste any yeast but it’s there. Good spring ale. 5.5% alcohol.

12oz Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden orange with a large (2-3 finger) white rocky head that receded slowly, down to a medium cap which lasted throughout and produced fair spotty lacing. The aroma was of a grain malt, light floral hops and a moldy yeast with notes of citrus (orange peel and tangerine), banana and coriander. The taste was lightly sweet and rather yeasty with a touch of tangerine from the beginning, becoming a tad spicy with a hint of banana and a mild citrus peel bitterness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, with a spicy yeast taste fading quickly off the taste buds. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a somewhat mild carbonation. Overall this brew was OK in taste and drinkability, but nothing overly special... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

12 oz bottle from the Spring Thaw sampler case. As whites go this one could compete with some of the top contenders from Belgium. Impressed with the crisp and citrusy tastes and the clean finish.

Bright, hazy golden-orange with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, bread, and spice. Taste is yeasty and fruity and a little sweet. Light-medium bodied. Refreshing. Not bad.
