Bottle at Chris-o’s Pre GBBF tasting and 2009 ... golden ... spiced hop nose .. grainy sweet lemon grassy hop. fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
Hazy blond color. Herbal aroma, rosemary and heather; this is not a good start. Dry mouthfeel, poor flavor, lightly medicinal, soapy. Forget… forget… forgotten! harrisoni (18436) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle at Chriso pre-GBBF tasting 09. Hazy pale gold, some floaters. Lasting white head. Spicy aroma. Just too spicy, lemon wheaty. It’s horrible. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
Well, it looks like what it is - a lager, with straw colour, and a witbiery haze. Orange, coriander nose with lemon zest and bready pale malts. Very lemon/lime zest flavour. Tangy. Pithy bitterness, probably too much. Some orangey hop notes, doughy pale malts. Interesting brew, but for me some balance issues with too much of the wrong kind of bitterness, overly harsh spicing, and weak malts that couldn’t hope to back it all up. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of spices (cinnamon and nutmeg), lemon / lime, candy and ginger. Flavour of all of the above, with spicy lemon dominating. Eccentric and interesting, but not overly enjoyable.

Cloudy copper pour. Honey spruce nose. Some resin. Taste is lemon malt. Light bodied. bhensonb (15091) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Bomber from the Coop in Davis, CA. Hazy golden color with a decent white head. Aromas of flowers and spice. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is nutmeg? Along with some malt and hop bitter. Ginger? A pleasure to the nose, and pretty tasty in the mouth. Finish is semi-clean. DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 2, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 Bottle. Beer of the Month club. Cloudy yellow-ish orange color with a quickly-diminishing bubbly white head. Spicy aroma with wheat, yeast, ginger, coriander, orange and lemon. Sweetish wheaty flavor with some citrus, a bit of bread and some spices (mostly ginger) that become more dominant towards the drier, slightly hoppy finish. Light to medium-bodied. I don’t really dig the spiciness, but still it’s an OK refreshing beer. Ratman197 (14680) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2008
