3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
651mL thanks to someone at our tasting! The pour is a hazy, light yellow, glowing in the glass. Thinning head. Aroma is all apples. Really not looking so hot from the get go. Taste is very nice: massive white pepper, dry and spicy citrus, potpourri herbal, heavy sage. Fresh and bitter rather than medicinal. A nice surprise after hearing from Travlr how awful it was. Would really benefit from a none acetaldehyde nose.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of spice and orange. taste is a confused jumble of incompatible spices. Evil.

Tried at a UPick6 Tasting of Voodoo Brewery. Bottle Pours a clear Orange/yellow a few floaties. Has a big bubbly white head which diminishes quickly. Fruity, spicy aroma – peppercorns jump out, but the other spices are restrained. Sweet, tangy, spicy flavor. Yeasty/Malt and pepper finish. Not for me really, Drinkable, but I won’t buy again.

I thought this was a very nice beligain white. The tsatse had a little corriander and spice but not enough that it was overwhelming. Very tasty.

22nd March 2009
Cloudy amber beer with a very frothy white head. Head is grapefruit bitter with pepper! Palate is crisp and dry. Starts with bitterish orange and coriander. Some semi sweet wheaty malt follows, then sweet orange as the beer froths in the mouth. Some creamy malt and then a dry finish with some grapefruit bitterness and quite a bit of pepper. Interesting well joined up beer.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz Bomber: Beautiful clear, golden orange with a thick, boisterous head! Lots of sweet and spicy notes in the aroma. Distinct berry and citrus notes (sweet) and pepper (mild) for the spicy notes. Malty, light to medium bodied with a slight dry (spicy) finish. Nice mix of sweet and spicy but nothing too outstanding. Enjoyable and drinkable, but nothing outstanding. A bit too light bodied. Seems like they added a bit more spice instead of making a more full bodied white ale. Worth trying if you come across it but nothing to go out of your way for.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite - Jersey City, 12/1/10
Aroma: The nose is very Belgian yeasty, lots of spice, some citrus, other fruits, and dough
Appearance: Another gusher from Voodoo, I’m going to start calling these guys the gusher brewery if this keeps up, and the pour is a cloudy orange with a foamy, lasting, white head and some lace
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, tangy citrus, lots of spice, and some doughy malts
Palate: This beer feels fairly fizzy on the mouth, its a touch thin and has a fairly short finish to it
My first rating of December, that wasn’t really worth noting, but I noted it anyway. This was another mediocre brew from Voodoo. There isn’t anything particularly terrible about their beers, but they’re just not that interesting, and the quality of the product is just alright. Decent, but not particularly exciting stuff.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. Bottle, poor into a pint. Pours a clear yellow with lots of floating spices and yeast. Has a big bubbly white head which did stay awhile, nearly til the end. Leaves a soapy like lacing. Has a good aroma of fruits and spices. Very high carbonation. The flavor is pretty good. Nice mouthfeel. A LOT of spice. they say they use 12 varieties of peppercorns.. well, you can taste it. In fact, it’s big time in the finish. It is nearly overwhelming. I don’t think I would ever buy it again. Just to much spice.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A-pours a murky brownish yellow with particles floating around. its quite ugly looking, hope it tastes better.
S-not here, extremely soapy fruit esters, hints of stale grain, light soapy orange peel. not good.
T-the taste follows the nose but not to the degree of offensiveness. light notes of toasted grain up front, soapy juniper berries and orange peel, faint notes of yeast and slightly bready in the back.
M-oily slick feel to it with a light amount of carbonation and murky rough finish.
D-this is a relatively poor attempt at the style and not only tastes bad but looks bad as well. soapy and murky, sweet with no spice and little to no yeast flavors.
