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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle-pours a big white head and hazy orange/yellow color with small floaties. Aroma is pepper, some clove, coriander, wheat, fruit, yeast. Taste is pepper, tangy orange zest, some sweet grain/wheat, herbal. An interesting beer that grew on me as I got further into it. One suggestion: do 12 oz bottles or with 22’s I suggest a swirl to get the solids evenly distributed. Thanks jwc215 for picking this one out.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy dark golden color with floaties and a small white head. The aroma was moderately sweet, coriander, herbal, wheat, and a touch of fruit. The flavor had an almost out of control herbal presence. Pepper, coriander, other spices, yeast, wheat grass, some malt. Taken in moderation these flavors work well, but this is too much thrown together.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy golden amber coloured body with a thin white head and a tiny bit of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of coriander seed, curacao, wheat and a bunch of honey. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive maltie/wheatie flavours tucked into the coriander seed and curacao freshness. Aftertaste shows a bit of the wit, but also a bit lost in transition. Overall, a good beer - not showing enough good characteristics to make it a ’must try’, but good to sample for me, none-the-less. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Ramsey Liquors in Ramsey, New Jersey on 19-January-2009, sampled on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 28-February-2009.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber at Zeno’s. Pours gold with bunches of floaties, thin white head. The aroma is tangerine, lemon, coriander, some light toast. The flavor is spritzy lemon and orange, with a whole lot of coriander and pepper, and some yeasty sourdough bread. Not bad, but the spices are way overdone.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz bottle given to me as a Christmas gift from my brother-in-law and sis. Pours a clear golden color with tons of visible floaties swimming around inside tons of carbonation despite the fact that this was the first 6 ounces of the bottle. I wonder how much more sediment is actaully at the bottom of this one? Aroma of tons of pepper and spice, oranges, coriander, slight wheat. Body on this one is rather dry with a light to medium mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Flavor is much like the aroma and very forced...very peppery and spicey, grainy and yeasty. Hmmm....it’s only 6% ABV so do I force the rest down?? Hell it’s my Friday night so why the hell not, just hope all the pepper and spices don’t give me heart burn.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle- aroma was real peppery, some phenols, but mostly an unpleasant spice. Thankfully, the flavor was quite nice- dry, coriander, a well done wit that was extremely satisfying.
