3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
I believe this is a 2012 bottle.
Aroma has a medium citrus note with moderate coriander character. Moderately strong, musty wheat notes. Light tannins and funkiness with a bit of staleness.
Pours a surprisingly clear, pale yellow gold with a big, fluffy white head with seemingly never ending retention. Light lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is moderately musty and funky with medium citrus and coriander. Medium light acidity and light saltiness. Light tannins with moderate red apple cider notes. Faint bitterness.
Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall a decent beer, but I think the age has muddled the brightness I would expect in this style of beer. The cider notes are also a bit unpleasant.

1 finger head, cloudy orange. Coriander dominates the nose. Slightly sweet. Taste is nice. Very wheat heavy. The salt hit at the very end. Sweet and lovely spice. Quite sessionable.

Bottle, shared with AJ and friend. Pours hazy butterscotch, medium off-white head, dissipates fairly slowly and laces well. Aroma is wheat, lemon, a touch of cardboard. Flavor is wheat, lemon/citrus, a bit of salt, biscuit. Light body, high carbonation. Easy to drink for sure, but not a lot going on here.

Bottle shared at Ma Che in Roma. Big thanks to Colin for this one! Pours cloudy yellow with a fine, white foam head. Doughy pale malt nose with faint wheat, citrus. Very slight lemony tang in the flavor with more lightly doughy pale bread, wheat. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate sweetness in the finish with simple, doughy pale malts, faint lemon and banana. Very drinkable stuff.

Backlog of ratings. Thanks to someone at one of bu11zeye’s tastings. The smell is very wheaty, corn, fruits, and cereal. The look is golden in color, has an off white head, and is cloudy. The taste is sweet, fruits, grass, and ok.
