Very cloudy golden color with a nice smooth white head. Smooth aroma, some yeast and fruit were detected. A hint of hops as well?? Malty taste. Some spice and citrus. Very complex. All around a very nice brew. Definitely worth having on a nice warm day. Bought this bottle at Whole Foods in Vienna, VA.

hazy golden color,medium sized head that lasted for some time before fading to a nice lace.Fruity yeasty aroma with a light citrus and spice.The flavor was Spicy and citrusy with a decent amount of hops a little bitter but not to bad.Fairly spicey all around.Very nice brew it's not exactly what i was thinking it might be but,it still was decent and well worth trying again,but the chances of getting another one are slim since i've been holding on to this one for awhile with little success of procuring another.Still if i had a choice the Westy 12 wins out over this brew.

Poured a cloudy golden color with a thick fluffy white head. Very herbal in the aroma with a touch of fruit. Flavor is spicy with herbs and hops. I drank half of this and poured the rest into the cream sauce I am making with pork chops. Hope it works.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a medium size rocky head and little lace. The aroma is somewhat musty and floral. The flavor is rather bitter in the finish. I'm really not sure what it has going on in the front. The body is light and somewhat carbonated. Overall, it is OK. It is quite balanced.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a sort of dark, golden blonde, with a huuuge head. Smells musty. Not much going on for aroma or flavor, and the palate seems a bit watery. Sorry, but it was hard for me to get excited over this one.
