3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Shirlington, VA location. The appearance was a cloudy, sunshine yellow, very light with virtually no head. Aroma of citrus and corriander with the corriander being the predominant. Front palate of citrus-laced yeast with a wheat middle and finish of corriander and something else - nutmeg or cumin maybe? Couldn’t put my finger on it, but delicious just the same. The body was thinner than I had expected, which made the beer drink even more quickly than I had hoped and oops, I had to have another. Very refreshing and light version of what is becoming one of my favorite styles.
Draft @ brewpub: Poured a hazy yellow with a nice white head. The aroma was wheat and citrus. The flavor was sweet citrus, banana, clove, wheat and spice. Overall, an easy drinker. Dogbrick (13398) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Sample at the Downtown location. This beer is a hazy yellow color with a thin white head that disappears relatively fast. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of mild spices and citrus. Light, clean body with a fruity and spicy character along with a touch of hops. The finish is zesty citrus and sweet spices. Decent overall. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2009

Sampled at Virginia Beer Festival. Pale hazy straw color. Wheat, coriander, and citric orange nose. Flavor matches. A textbook example of one of my favorite styles. Well done. Capitol proved to be one of my favorites of the day.

Enjoyed at the Capitol Hill Brewpub. Pour is a very cloudy straw color with the thinnest head. Aroma is lemon and coriander as is the flavor. Commercial description said it had orange peels but I found lemon. Quite a nice zesty summer beer. Very refreshing on a July day. Drake (14045) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2009
