3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed from a 22oz bottle in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a cloudy/hazy straw-colored yellow, with a fluffy white head. The nose is remniscent of Hoegaarden, which was surprising, given the brewery’s asserted yeast choice. Coriander, pepper, floral notes, and perhaps just a touch of Abbey yeast esters come to the nose; very pleasing. The palate is slightly more assertive than other good examples of the style. Lots of yeast-derived flavors, big notes of pepper, the smooth character lent by the use of flaked wheat, and a fruity mid-palate and finish. Overall, I can see where the complexity and esoteric character of the beer would turn some off, but I found it compares well with well-known benchmarks of the style, and reflects a well-guided melange of creativity and brewing skill.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Jaxson. Pours out a slightly cloudy light amber color, not normal color for a white. Small lacing white head with an aroma predominately of coriander, citrus zest and spice. Taste is coriander up front, some notes of spice, citrus and a slight yeasty fruity note, I only found slight traces of any of these 12 kinds of peppercorns. Whites usually aren’t my style, but this one was enough off the beaten path that I could enjoy it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12/10/2008: Voodoo White Magick of the Sun has a fresh orange, light corriander, and wheat aroma that has just a touch of sweetness about it. The beer is hazy and golden orange in color. It has calm bubbly carbonation and a small foamy off-white head. The flavor is dominated by CORRIANDER and inscence-like flavors. This beer tastes like an insence store in my mouth! It is very herbal and has a VERY peppery finish. It has a medium body and average mouthfeel. Overall this beer is interesting, but I’m not sure that I really like it. II wonder if this beer is like what marijuana would taste like if you just chewed on it?!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Hazy light yellow ale with lots of yeast particles and little to no head. Fruity, grainy, spicy aroma – peppercorns jump out, but the other spices are restrained. A touch funky. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Sweet, tangy, spicy flavor. Honey and pepper finish. Kudos to dmschefke for providing the bottle!

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber. There is definitely pepper in this beer, it hits you right away. However, after a bit it was not as noticeable. Coriander was slightly noticeable and there are other spices. Fantastic take on a white ale. The mouthfeel was a bit creamy and the overall drinkability is great.

Man, they love the black pepper. Really cool take on the witbier deal with a great carbonation and heft in the mouthfeel. The flavor was just overtaken by the numbing spice of the pepper though. Not my cup. Thank You Voodoo. 2009 22oz.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear copper pour with some floating things. Huge, enormous, wild pepper influence on the nose. This is really strange and unlike any other beer in that sense. Pepper and coriander are more mild in the flavor but dang, that white pepper thing still really brings up the rear. A little spicy. Good and refreshing, I especially like this one for its singular nature..."it insists upon itself."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a clear yellow with lots of floaties in the body. Has a big bubbly white head which leaves quickly. Leaves a soapy like lacing. Has a good aroma of fruits and spices. Has a decent carbonation. The flavor is pretty good. Nice mouthfeel. Has a nice spiciness to it while being very refreshing. Has a medium body. The finish is good and so is the aftertaste. This is a super refreshing beer on a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy light orange color with small film of bubbly white head. Aroma is banana, yeast esters, a bit of sweet strawberry, and a pinch of coriander - more sweet than most usually smell. Flavor bit of a watery base, very fresh and smooth, sweet but grassy, nice berriness to it. Overall, more refreshing than many, easy to drink, and overall enjoyable.
