A really nice Belgian especially since I wasn’t expecting much for some reason. Nice taste and a great finish! By far my favorite beer from this brewer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz draft at Drafting Table in DC. Poured a hazy, vibrant yellow color with a large foamy white head. Aroma was lots of lemon notes, some zest, lemon juice. Coriander. Flavor was similar too, lots of coriander, lemon. Nothing super special, but refreshing enough I guess.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a pretty good aroma of hops and wheat with a touch of citrus.
Appearance- A hazy yellow with a small white head.
Taste- This beer had a weak hop flavor that did not meet expectations.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation with a semi-dry finish.
Overall- The most disappointing Spoetzel beer I have tried. I am a big fan of this brewer and this beer just did meet my expectations.

I like it. No need for the ridiculous chunk of orange needed to drink shock top.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from a bottle bought at Champanes,
this ale had a light orange and yellow pour with a bunch of particles, and gave a small white, fizzy cover that receded to a thin layer and ring,
the nose had aromas of wheat, malt and grain, lemon and orange, some malt sweetness, coriander spice with a little pepper,
flavors of coriander and spice with some wheat and malt a little light fruit in the background, it had some sweetness,
the mouth feel was light and a little fizzy,
a light malt and wheat beer with spice that wasn’t overbearing but very noticeable, I think the coriander gave a pepper note on the nose, a little more beer aroma and flavor would help.
