12 fl.oz. bottle, gift from Eduardo Ruiz-Tagle. Pours a light hazy golden color with a minimal white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is clearly spice-driven. Not much malt, mostly neutral bready and grainy, and not much hops either, with a little citrusy trace and noble-hop-like hints. Seems like the cardamom and coriander are making up for whats missing from the Reinheitsgebot ingredients. Taste is fairly good, a bit too neutral and wheaty, with moderate sweet hints, touches of lemon and balanced spiced overtones. Fairly drinkable, well balanced. Medium carbonation, quick finish. A bit watery. Drank it back to back with a Hoeegaarden and it paled badly in comparison. Although thats likely unfair.

Mother-in-law brought back a bottle after a visit to Colonial Willamsburg. Hardly noticeable aroma. Watery, with slight spice and hints of coriander. An average summer day drinking brew.

Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a fleeting, white head. Theres no aroma here, but at least its not offensive. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and gentle carbonation. The sweet, biscuit and toffee flavor is flanked by a thin, watery, sweet finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

jjuf1853 (1301) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle received as a gift from family who recently visited Williamsburg. Pours a slightly hazed golden yellow with just the tiniest head that immediately disappears to nothing. Zero lacing along the glass. Looks almost like a pale apple cider due to the lack of head. Aroma is nice and inviting with an abundance of spice notes. Flavor is quite nice with the mixture of spices and some sweetness. Overall an interesting and unique beer.

On draft. Pour is hazy golden and with an off white head. Aroma of spices and light fruit. Flavor followed and was a bit sweet, lemons in there too. Sam Adams Summer like. Mouthfeel moderate to light and decent for a summer brew.
