   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
htnicholas (50) - California, USA - SEP 14, 2013
From a bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a rapidly disappearing white head and no lacing. Smells of spices, coriander, lemon, and wheat. Taste is the same as the aroma but with a slightly metallic off-flavor. Finish is crisp but without any hoppiness but with a faint lingering grapefruit skin bitterness and a disquieting metallic tinge to it. The palate is very thin, relatively over carbonated, and has an absence of any substantive malt or wheat body. There is none of the inviting citrus overtones that I would normally expect from this style to provide balance. A very disappointing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ajnepple (5419) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 2, 2016
11.2 oz single bottle from Bottles & Bitters at Sloans Lake. Yellow, pretty clear appearance with a mostly dissipating white head. Aroma of citrus zest, spicy yeast, toasted grain and light hops. Similar flavor, adding moderate bitterness and a lingering, light dry finish. Nice.

AssKicker (265) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - NOV 25, 2016
Couleur blonde claire, assez trouble, et mousse pas trs coriace. Une "blanche" quoi. Au nez on est donf sur la coriandre, alors quen bouche elle est bien plus dlicate. Vraiment douce en bouche, pas amre, avec une dominante sur lorange pour ce qui est des armes. Un petit quelque chose de mielleux galement. Moi qui ne suis pas particulirement fan des blanches, jadhre pas mal celle-ci. Comme quoi.

Blueshawk (451) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2016
- trb-gelbe Farbe mit leichter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - gut wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Orange und vielleicht, mit viel Fantasie Muskatnuss und Koriander - gute Carbonisierung - geschmacklich wird das Ganze dann nur noch dnn und nichtssagend - im Abgang kommt dann noch ein wenig von den beschriebenen Orangenschalen mit einem leicht wrzigen Tick, aber nichts was ein besonderes Geschmackserlebnis darstellt Fazit: Seltsames, nach fast nichts schmeckendes, teures Gebru
