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.

Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of spices and lemonpeal. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of spices, cloves, lemongrass, and more, leading to a dry spicy finish. A bit too much for me. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours golden with a rough white head. Lovely citrus aroma - and I believe I pick up some pepper as well. Medium body, a little sweet lemon and perhaps lemongrass. Dry finish. Very fresh and drinkable - would be a perfect summer quencher. 290111

9th October 2008. GABF. A very dry and perfumed spicy beer. Fairly hot as is spicy not alcohol) finish. The overall feel of this beer reminded me of the dry spicy mix you get in Indian restaurants, Unusual beer!

Theydon_Bois (16482) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass (drank Mar ’12) to a hazy gold colour with a thinnish white head. Smells of orange peel/zest, other hints of citrus and some peppercorn, corriander and a pinch of other ’unidentifiable’ herbs! Flavour wise a sour orange and to a lesser extent lemon dominates the mouth allied to background flavours of wheat and moderate spice. Also get the peppercorns again particularly in the finish however there was also a background ’sweetness’ to the beer which I don’t think overly helped the balance of flavours! Mouthfeel was light to medium in body, perhaps a little too thin and watery? Overall not impressed. Not a particularly well balanced beer and a little thin. Slightly ’spicie’ but not so ’nicie’ - they must have set themselves up for a review along those lines and I’m sure I’m not the first to quote that and I won’t be the last! Would not seek out this beer in any way shape or form in the future. I would imagine the only likelihood of me drinking again would be on a hot summers day as I guess it has ’refreshment’ potential in such conditions, but someone would have to gift me a bottle!

Bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. It pours a slightly hazy, golden body and a small, off-white head. Spiced nose with pleasant black pepper aromas, some citrus rind and a hint of malts. It’s full-bodied and smooth, slightly peppery-warming. The flavor has a nice blend of lemon, orange and black peppers, quite low on bitterness. Bitter, spiced finish. I like the blend of pepper and citrus, but it sort of stops there. 110129
