4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shot its cork out when loosening the cage.   Pours translucent golden, HUGE fluffy white head, copious amounts of carbonation, with super sticky lacing.   Wonderful aroma of spices, corriander, oranges, lemon zest... quite citrusy.   Forwardly wheat like, light citrus flavor, with a spritzy mouthfeel.   Other spices seem to be present, but subtle compared to the citrus.   Finishes light, with the aformentioned spices and a bit of a malty aftertaste.   Tasty!

Ooh la la! Very nice and bright golden color with a medium head. Aroma is very grainy. Wheat, spice, malt, and touches of fruit on the mouth. Splendid little brew!

Wow... what can I say? Wonderful spicy aroma with a hint of allspice, sweet, honeyed flavor with a noted alcohol bite, beautiful golden color, nice mouthfeel. Should also note almonds and walnuts, apricot overtones and citrus. Complicated and great.

sweet honeydew aroma. refreshingly sweet, with the taste of apple, honey, and a pleasantly warm and slightly dry finish. a delicate beer that is easy to appreciate. rather dainty.

On tap at the Ginger Man in Dallas. A good example of the style. Has a bright gold color with a small head. The aroma is alcohol and some sour apples. The taste is bananas, vanilla and some ginger spice. Nice, but not great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney, citrus aroma with hints of banana and pineapple. Yellow/gold color with off-white, lasting head. First pour is almost all head. Let the bottle breath for a minute or so and be careful with the first pour. Excellent lacing. Moderately sweet, tons of carbonation. This has the mouthfeel of champagne. Belgian wheat taste and high in alcohol. Good but not my favorite style.

Had it on tap. Golden color. Not sure if this is how it was susposed to be, but there was very little carbonation like it was flat. It was very smooth with a spicy and sweet flavor. Lightly bitter and alcoholic.

Golden/honey color, white head. Aroma from yeast, fruit, malt and some honey. Flavor is malty, mild at first, some floral touches. Turns spicy after a while. Finish is bitter and fruity. Complex and very nice.
