12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a hazy, particle laden, yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is wheat, coriander, allspice from the adjuncts, melon, light citrus peel, especially lemon....taste is slightly sweet with floral honey tones, wheat, coriander, herbal tones, light allspice, finishing with a light dry but lingering bitterness.....mouth feel, light body, minimal astringency, hints of acidity, low carbonation with light tingle. This is a nicely balanced beer, with the exception that the bitter citrus tones are a bit too strong. Also it is too herbal and overall a bit heavy handed. I would reduce the herbal additions, back off on the spices, and try again. BJCP 7/1/13/4/6 Tac (157) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Pours white head, hazy pale yellow color. Aromas of wheat malt and cereal with strong floral and citrus hop notes with some hint of bubble gum. Taste is somewhat sour with quite strong hop bitterness.

This ones pretty different. I have a little bit of a cold so I can't tell if it's a good or bad kinda different. The aroma is pretty unique. It smells pretty hoppy with some fruity overtones. It has a wheat beer kinda vibe to it. I think I'd give this one another shot.

The aroma is intensely tropical, displaying fruits like pineapple or grapefruit. The appearance is cloudy, sort of a home-squeezed lemonade color with a thin white head. The taste is totally out of balance and too fruity. This beer is what I would imagine mixing Blue Moon and Purple Haze to taste like. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Uber-cloudy pineapple yellow. Decent meringue of head. Looks very summery, like a saison.
The aroma is almost unlike any beer I’ve had before, although I can’t quite put my finger on it. Is it a creamiscle? Is it tangerine? Orange peel? Orange juice? Grains of paradise? It is spicy and sweet but also a little sour. And for some reason it gives me a sense memory of a scratch-and-sniff sticker. Okay creamsicle: final answer.
The flavor doesn’t quite hold up to the promise that the aroma made. It’s a little musty (possibly age). The orange and tangerine are still present though. It is more like an orange juice than anything.
Slick feel; medium bodied. You could probably make a mimosa with this stuff. It’s fruity and has a sweet, almost candy-like quailty. You could make a candle out of it, but I wouldn’t necessarily want to drink it all day. DocLock (10689) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a great, bright, turbid golden canary color with a frothy finger of off-white head that laces copiously all over your mother’s face. Nose is limey citrus, white peppery and coriandery spice, honeydew, malt. The smell is great. Tastes fruity, with orange marmalade, honeydew, mild spice, and a dense and complex finish. This is indubitably one of the best beers Matt has ever brewed, and I would drink this with a fox, I would drink it in a box, I would drink it on a hill, I would drink it while banging a woman who is on the pill. I would, I would Sam I am! sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from sampler pack. Pours amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is banana, candy sugar, floral notes, tropical fruit, and light Belgian yeast. Flavor is dry malts forward, light floral notes, light citrus esters, and faint toast; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation. snoworsummer (5697) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 21, 2014
From a bottle. Pours murky dull brown with a foamy frothy white head. Tastes like hops, dry apricot, spice, light pine and citrus. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet sugary oranges, peaches, apricots.
