Crisp and clear light golden under a thin foamy top. Lovely light blonde aroma with a vague chocolaty kiss and orange zest. Smooth crisp wheaty base flavor with a great complexity of chocolate covered orange and honey. drjay44 (3957) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 28, 2015
750 ml. bottle. 6.3% ABV per the label, so the recipe is slightly different from the origional. Pours a medium, well retained, tiny bubbled white head, with slight lacing, over a slightly hazy straw (SRM 2) body.......nose is heavy vanilla, cardamom, light floral honey, base cereal malts, hints of wheat, minimal herbal hops with citrus notes, balance to the tea and honey.....taste is semi-dry, with heavy vanilla, strong cardamom, light honey, hints of white colored fruits (pear, apple), strong citrus with orange, lemon tones, finishing with hints of herbal bitterness.....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, no astringency, carbonation makes a slightly creamy mouthful. The honey was used with a light hand, and the tea, with appropriate spices, was more dominant. Hops were quite hidden and the malts were just there. The result was an interesting SHV beer that is an easy drinker, with slightly too light beer characteristics, which is its only flaw. The ABV is too high for a "session" beer but it is very easy to enjoy. BJCP 9/3/16/4/7 argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Draft. Small white head atop hazy straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, some cardamom, black tea, light wheat. Taste is moderately sweet, orange, bread, some berry, light wheat, tea. Light-medium body, light effervescence.

10 oz. pour at brewery. Cloudy straw yellow. Amazing nose that isn’t quite earl grey, but a sweet bergamot, vanilla note. Wheat base, but a nice creaminess to this giving it a round mouthfeel that the sweeter vanilla and honey elements work well with, tea like tannic bitterness. Great mid-day beer to have with an early lunch and enough bitterness to cut through a rich salmon BLT. Thought this would be a gimmick, and while I guess it still is, it worked for me.

Tap. Pours hazy light yellow with white head. Aroma lemon, honey, floral, very aromatic. Taste is very floral, herbal, apricot, jasmine. Okay. 3fourths (9386) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Turbid orange-yellow with a short head. An unfiltered wheat beer as the base, infused with Earl Gray, the nose is an immediate orange creamsicle Bergamot note, opening as it warms and showing more depth and beauty. Fuzzy edges of marshmallow, quiet diesel smokiness, orange pulp, perfume and flower blossoms. A odd wort-y / grainy note creeps in as it opens, and combined with the marshmallow and creamsicle character I start thinking of Lucky Charms cereal. Yep. The wheat provides an expected creamy texture, and the strongly tannic tea leaf astringency in the mouth pushes back against the malt sweetness, but both are rather forceful, and rather than balance they clash. Overall a fun beer to smell, one of the few gimmick beers from Fate to actually smell like more than just it’s ingredient list, but the biting astringency limits me to a small glass. cubs (10745) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2013
On tap @ Fate. Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Lemon poppyseed bready, honey aroma. A lot of honey and vanilla in the flavor. Refreshing. No cheese curds offered. brokensail (16696) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 7, 2013
On tap @ Fate. Hazed golden pour with a white head. Really, really, sweet vanilla aroma. Sweet, sugary aroma. Slight floral notes, maybe some tea. Flavor is tons of vanilla. Candy, sugar, and pale malt. Grass, lemon peel, kind of meh.
