Pours copper. Light malty aroma with notes of wheat. Very smooth in mouth, not much taste, clean finish.

I picked this up as a M&M 6pack from Binnyís in Downerís Grove, IL in summer 2012. Pours a clear, medium brown/amber color with a perfect off-white head. Some slight scents of wheat and malts, but nothing overpowering in the smell. Taste is quite mellow and very light. You get some hints of raw wheat but that it is. The actual taste is fine, there just need to be more flavor behind it. Overall a weak beer that needs work, but I guess itís all about marketing it as a USDA organic in the end.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour was ruddy ice tea with two fingers of light khaki head. There was very little lacing, but the retention was a notable positive. Nose is old vegetables, wheat, yeast, grass, and light cloves. Taste is wheat, yeast, grainy malt, and an oddball (but light) tang that I canít place. Iím not crazy about this brew, though that is more the fault of the style. I can drink one though, still far easier than a Budweiser!

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Spicy, fruity and wheat malt aroma. Copper red color. Taste of caramel and a hint of banana On the thin side for something this sweet. Feels hastily thrown together, as if itís blend of caramel amber ale and spicy hefe rather than an original beer. Also has the visage of Palin on it...make of it what you will.

My favorite of the sampler pack case we picked up. Flavorful and spicy with rich candied fruit notes. Really nice

12oz bottle pours a nice deep clear copper with thin gold edges and thin tan head. The aroma seems to be a mix of spicy hops, mineral notes, some mildly roasted maltiness and then a vague sense of fruity esteriness. The taste delivers the same sort of modest spicy hoppiness mixing with various malts and a bit of roastiness. Midway some estery sweetness joins in as the carbonation erupts a bit across the palate. Decent enough.

Pours a clear amber with a foamy medium lt tan head. Aroma is malty...light sweetness and fruitiness. Flavor is fruity...almost like raspberry with some bready maltiness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively with a slightly fruity finish.

alobar (2730) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Minimal aroma of wheat and caramel. Decent lacing, but flavor seems watered down with hint of caramel, spice, and grain.

Bottle @ home. Hazy, burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Big spicy coriander, orange citrusy, a bit toasty, wheat malty aroma. Spicy coriander, orange peel, tangy, fruity, wheat malty flavor. A little overdone.
