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.

Bomber bonus from Steve, thanks hopdogggity dog. Pours orangeish gold with a bright white ring. Nose is slightly coriandery. Taste is sweet and slightly hoppy, peppery with some coriander. All in all ok.

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.
