2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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. It’s quite different in the flavor. No sweetness what so ever. Not even a hint, and it’s quite zesty and spicy. Almost like a wit gone bad? (Like in wild). It’s really hot outside today, and this is one of those it’s light to drink when it’s 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 I’m 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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy orangey golden colour with small white head. Somewhat dubious aroma; analytically interesting: fresh and spicy notes, orange cest, pepper; not really felicitous as composition. Taste has a coriander note in addition to the orange zest and pepper. The result is a bit to soapy and should be absorbed my more freshness and sweetness (an additional lemon and orange or even banana contingent?)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is hazy yellow with white head out of 12 oz bottle, aroma brings notes of orange, coriander, big wheat notes, the grains of paradise come in a bit, touch of pepper as well. Taste is a mix of very sweet fruity orange and lemon, hints of pepper and spice come through with some biscuit, finishing fairly sweet.

12 oz bottle...Another bold innovation turned commercial sucess for Shorts. The name says it all...a nicely (citrus) spiced (peppercorns) wheat that is subtley complex.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pour pale orange with a lighter yellow edge and a thin white head. Aroma is peppery fruit, mango and coriander with fresh pineapple dominating. Very thin on the palate and not bitter or dry. White pepper is obvious initially then coriander orange followed by zesty lemon pith bursting through. This fades almost immediately into a subtle citrus aftertaste of pineapple and grapefruit which lingers on the tongue and particularly on the roof of the mouth. An innovative take on a wheat beer that could be too sweet or over-powering for some.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin white head, over a hazy gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is lemon, coriander, hints of hibiscus and other floral tones...taste is cereal, lemon peel, orange, hibiscus florality, coriander, soap....mouth feel light, carbonation adds a foamy quality. Although tending in the direction of a Witbier this beverage is completely dominated by the spices and other additives. BJCP 7/3/11/4/6
