2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at multiple locations. From 12-oz bottle pours a clear light golden pale colored brew with a fast dissipating head that leaves behind a film top and white ring. Aroma of Golden grain malt, a hint of coriander/orange spice and some floral hops. Taste is light bodied, average carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, seltzer water and a hint of grassy hops. Finish is light, crisp with minimal golden grain aftertaste. The 2014 vintage had more grapefruit and lime zest flavors that reminded me of Graf’s 50/50 soft drink of the 70s.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12/27/14. 12oz bottle from Hy Vee, Davenport. Hazy golden pour with a small off-white head, mild lacing. Surprised by the aroma... not even a slight hint at tart. Wheat, malty, salty. Wheat beer flavor, malty, a bit of salt and spice, not sour in the slightest. Disappointed. Not good.

Generous fluffy white head wow. Great lacing. Smell lager beer smell grain white pepper coriander. Bready sweet salty taste some lemon in the finish. Refreshing and a bit different for a hot day. Nice mouth feel nothing offensive. A bit bland by the end of a 16 oz can but enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours a semi-hazy golden yellow color with only a slight head. The aroma is weak with a hint of grain. This flavor is weaker than I expected but interesting nevertheless. There is a weak grain flavor with a lingering dry after taste. Certainly worth a try.

Sample at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Orange-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing. Aroma of citrus, yeast and slight spice. Light-bodied with flavors of tart citrus, bready malt and yeast. Subtle saltiness in the background. The finish is fruity with a short citrus aftertaste. Barely average overall.

16oz. can from Zipp’s Liquors. Light citrusy nose, some spice. Medium dark straw/orange color. Light sweet fruit juice, with some citrus zest, chicken stock, bready, and very tiny coriander. Thin body. Not much tartness. Kind of a half-hearted take on the style. No real spice/salt tang.
