COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A gentle mixture of elegance and redolence for any occasion.
Northern Michigan spiced wheat ale. A 50% mixture of premium two-row malted barley and malted white wheat makes golden wheat ale balanced with Ahtanum and Cascade hop varieties. This ale is spiced with fresh grated lemon and orange rind, coriander, and black peppercorns. It’s truly a fermented wonder of the Short’s Brew formula family.

Draft @ Hopcat...pour was a light gold with a small white head. Notes of earthy hops and citrus are apparent with the peppercorn making an appearance as well. I was actually expecting the peppercorn to be subtle to the point of nonexistence but I was proved wrong. Body was crisp and refreshing with flavors of light wheat, light citrus and pepper. Good brew though I couldn’t pick up on the coriander notes whatsoever.

On tap at Ashley’s. Poured gold with no head. Aroma had notes of citrus peels, cinnamon, peeper and a touch of coriander. Flavor began with sweet grain flavors before spices listed above kick in. Pepper was quite dominate in aftertaste.

5oz sample at brewery 7/2/09-Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of peppercorns and citrus. Taste of the same with some coriander and citrus. This is a different tasting light bodied brew but still very well balanced and quite drinkable.

I had this on tap at MBGSF 09. It was a light orange color with a white head. Aroma was very nice, spicy, like the name states...but really it was a bit citrusy and had a lot of pepper, clove and ginger to the nose. It tasted malty and had a lemon citrus flavor along with all of the spices. Very nice.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 At the brewery in May. Orange gold color with citrus and pepper aroma. Strong lemony citrus and spice, malty flavor. A bit of a nice peppery finish. This one is underrated at 3.1. A nice summery beer.

Growler shared by Rogueone. Pours clear amber with a thin tan head. Sweet malt aroma with yeast and lots of spice (cinnamon, clove, ginger). Malty flavor up front with a bit of tartness, pepper and the aforementioned spices. Finishes sorta thin. Good overall.

Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a growler. The beer is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of pepper and wheat with a touch of malt. Light body with flavors of peppery wheat bread, malt and mild citrus. The finish is lightly spiced and fruity and the pepper lingers a bit. Interesting and above average overall.

Growler, courtesy of GodOfThunder. Pours blonde with a white ring of a head. Nose is pepper, lemon, wheat and yeasty. Peppery flavor leads off, oranges, wheat, lemon, a pepper heavy finish. Light mouthfeel. Different, but quite drinkable, I like the combination of pepper and lemon with the wheat. It works well.
