12oz bottle - Pours a cloudy light yellow with white head. Good smell - floral, lemon, green tea, grassy notes. Hoppier than I expected. Decent smack of citrus, but smooth, ala a wit. Herb-like.

This is a tough one to judge. Not getting a lot out of the nose. Pours a hazy, very light straw with decent lacing. A bit of hops, light citrus, and a hint of something else. Assuming coriander, but if it wasn’t listed on the crowler, I doubt I would have known.
There is not much to this, and unfortunately I am paring it with a thai pizza that overwhelms the tastes of this beer.

This is a little different. I would characterize it as a helles hopped up like an IPA. The aroma is rich and piney. The body is light and crisp. Their is a strong citrus note that tastes like pineapple to me. The finish is pleasantly long. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

Hazy yellow pour, big white head. Aroma is very herbal, some green tea, soft minerals and some citrus. Thin mouth feel, soft carb. Clean bitter finish. Light biscuity malts, citrus zest.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Body looks like a witbier. Cloudy golden body with a minimal white head. Nose is honey, lemongrass, citrus, orange peel. Flavor is more of the same. Hops more pronounced in the flavor. Decent but not my bag of tea.

Ghostrider was one of those purchases I made solely because I thought it had a cool name and great artwork (although the name made me think of the shitty Nicolas Cage movies). Luckily Ghostrider proved to be worthwhile for more reasons than its awesome bottle... and much more enjoyable than the movies. Pale yellow body and white foam. Aroma has coriander, yeast, bready malt, and citrusy hops. Flavor follows the nose. Taste is a nice mix of spicy and sweet with a clean finish but minimal hop bitterness. Ghostrider definitely leans more toward white ale than IPA. In this case, I’m definitely okay with that.
