2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy light yellow with thin head that trys to hang on with each drink. Smells of wet hay in an old barn. Tastes has some hint to some spices but overall just a dry bland wheat flavor. Drinkable to some extent but not anything that I would care to buy more of.

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.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drank from a pint poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours golden, with little carbonation and little head. Aromas of orange. Tastes very watery, with a bit of a kick in the end...

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap from the Sheraton hotel in Steamboat Springs, Co. Pale yellow with a white head and some lacing. The aroma has wheat and coriander, the taste has wheat and is moderately spicy, with some lemon. The taste is light sweet, the palate is quite watery with a short dry finish. Classical and unimpressive.

Gentle orange and coriander aroma. Hazy light orange color with a light fluff head that settles a moderate head. Soft orange coriander taste that goes down smooth with a slight tang. Refreshing and delicious.
