Light colored for an altbier, yellowy-orange with a nice poofy head ... looks like a hefeweizen. The flavor is also uncharacteristically lemony-citric for an "alt" with an almost yeasty tinge. It’s good, but different for the style. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Appearance: clear, bright golden color, high carbonation, fat, fuzzy, slowly settling, snow white head.
Aroma: yeasty, softly citric, lemony, and clean, rather spare, actually.
Taste: brief, not quite bitter hop appearance leads the way on the palate, a quick spritz, then it’s more emptiness, with just a touch of malt, and a hint of sweetness. Body is light, finish rather blase’, and all ’round it’s a forgettable affair. You’ve got to applaud the organic angle, though, and it’s drinkable, and tasty, but too simplistic for me to get excited over.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 Certainly a strange one. Has a cloudy light gold color with very little head. The aroma is peaches and a slight lemon. The flavors are initially surprisingly sour with a lemon drop quality. A friend agreed that it tasted like hard lemon candy. Also has a touch of bubblegum at the end. Interesting, but not particularly impressive. Had this agian, similar experience, but a little less of the sour candy character. Still, nothing special.

I can see why this is not considerd an Alt - no real Alt qualities. Light orange, hazy appearance, thick, clumpy white head. Aroma is very yeasty and slightly corny. Yeast falvor is prominant and dominant. Decent mouthfeel. Slighlty disappointed. npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2004
Golden, with a white head.
Bready malt nose with soft apricot hints.
Biscuity malt flavor, grassy hops with a solid bitter kick.

Light hazy golden yellow pour. Low head amount on the pour. Smell is of heavy fruit. Citrus pours out in the smell. Taste is citrusy and a little bitter. Smooth after taste with a great feel on the palate. Little yeasty for me, but a good beer. IslandHaole (1268) - Misawa, JAPAN - MAY 29, 2004
This bottle is the one with the Green label with ORGANIC across the top. Clear golden, small white head. Slight grassy scent, probably more there but my nose is a bit stuffy tonight. Slight grain/toast flavor with a crisp hop follow. Reminds me of a Kolsch. Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Pours with an unusual tart, citrusy (pineapple), crackery aroma reminiscent of Piraat. Flavor continues in much the same fashion with biscuity, fruity malt and citrusy, grassy hops. The grassy hops really take control of the finish. The body is a clear golden color with a thin off-white head. Not bad at all. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2004
(Bootle) Pours a cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma of yeast, wet grass, and hops. Flavor of hops, dark fruit, and yeast. loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - APR 17, 2004
Hazy golden color with a medium white head. The aroma and flavor were lemony, grassy, sweet, with some hops bitterness at the end. Soft, small bubble feel. Nice.
