3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home via trade with pineypower, I believe. Pours a cloudy, light yellow orange appearance with a fluffy, off white head. Very floral, spicy potpourri, lemon zesty, spicy yeasty, very citrusy aroma. The aroma is a lot more spicy than I would like but itís ok. Big spicy, coriander, dry floral, lavender, herbal, dry grainy, citrusy flavor that finishes pretty smooth. Too spiced for my taste but it isnít bad per se.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. hazy gold body, short white head. basically a witbier, just like ernie said. musty perfume, orange jam (jelly? i already told you once), potpourri orange peel and sulfuric vitamin yeast in the nose. lean, dry, bitter texture and flavor. brash dryness with bracing hop acidity, totally unbalanced. okay, it doesnít taste bad, itís not the smell and flavor. itís how out of balance it is. thereís nothing here to make me want another drink. itís horribly bitter and rough for itís size. ugh.
