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. Itís truly a fermented wonder of the Shortís Brew formula family.

Pours a clear bright yellow color with no head. Aromas of lemon, orange, black pepper, and wheat. Taste is slightly sweet with lots of lemon and black pepper taste. Donít detect any hops. Not really my kind of beer. Very thin body and the taste is overpowered by lemons and peppercorns.

Very little head white head poured atop a clear golden thin beer. Smells of orange soda syrup, lemon, and pepper. I wish this carried through a bit more on the taste. Very light tasting easy drinking lightly orange and pepper taste. Ends with the pepper but less refined than in the aroma. If they were going for a light less filling fun beer than they did very well. This is a beer you could easily drink a few.

12oz bottle, shared by Jay. Hazy yellow orange color. Minimal white head, little lace. Jay is convinced that their is some bacteria used here, itís definitely got an acidic tart flavor, a funky yeast, maybe. Orange soda aroma, really zesty with all the lemon and citrus peel. Peppercorns are noticable in there too, itís a really nice medley. Jay was really surprised by how sour it was, but Iím actually enjoying that direction. Itís tart, and refreshing. Lighter, smooth carbonation, dry finish, with a slight acidic bite in the end that I donít really mind at all personally. This is the kind of quirkiness I like to see from Shorts.

Bottle. Poured a hazy, orange yellow, with little-to-no head. Smell is wheat, biscuit, baby poop, spice, and lemon. Taste is sour bread, grass, wheat, lemon, and infected bread. Light body and high carbonation. This beer is very boring and simple. Bleh.

Palme (3240) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2012
0.355l bottle from beermerchants.com This one pours a light cloudy honey-colored body, lots of packed unfiltered floaters and a small bubbly and quickly sidesticking white head. It smells fruity. Yeah, really bubblegum and sweet candy fruity. Gummy bears with some spicy tones. Hard to pinpoint, but it smells quite nice. Itís quite different in the flavor. No sweetness what so ever. Not even a hint, and itís quite zesty and spicy. Almost like a wit gone bad? (Like in wild). Itís really hot outside today, and this is one of those itís light to drink when itís quite hot outside. A bit thin and watery texture makes this a easy to drink and thirst quenching alternative to water. A hint of sourness in the finish and a light stingy peppery aftertaste. The aftertaste is actually so stingy that I have to re consider the quenching ability of this beer. Could just have been that Iím really dehydrated now.. 24.05.2012

I have had this several times, but never remember to rate it. Not bad, but a little too spicy to drink more than 1 at a time.
