COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A gentle mixture of elegance and redolence for any occasion.
Northern Michigan spiced wheat ale. A 50% mixture of premium two-row malted barley and malted white wheat makes golden wheat ale balanced with Ahtanum and Cascade hop varieties. This ale is spiced with fresh grated lemon and orange rind, coriander, and black peppercorns. It’s truly a fermented wonder of the Short’s Brew formula family.

vyvvy (6359) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Sampled at Schlafly’s 2010 Repeal of Prohibition Festival - Pours clear amber with a white head. The aroma has blonde ale malt with lots of pepper. Thin clean body with sharp carbonation. the flavor starts with pale malt and tons of pepper. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of complexity due to the pepper covering up so much to my palate, but it is still enjoyable.

Strykzone (7254) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2010
Sampled at Schalfly Repeal. A very nice beer. Black pepper and more. Once the pepper settled there were some nice wheat notes and a bit of fruit. Finish highlighted the fruit. A very clean beer to drink.

Terminus (3669) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2010
tap at repeal prohibition festival at Schalfly in Maplewood, MO. lite orange heu with a small fizzy head. spicy nose (as you would think) with black pepper, cinnamon and nothing much-dominated by the pepper. black pepper dominates as well on the flavors. lemon and orange peal? where? maybe a hint of the orange peal, but nothing else. a pretty one-dimensional spiced beer that was probably my least favorate at the festival. really short finish which detracted from the overall pleasure of the brew.

dukefan (215) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2010
On draft at Schlafly Beer Fest. As others have said, lots of citrus, lots of black pepper. I liked it a lot more than other reviewers. It might have been the 3 oz. pour versus drinking a whole beer. But the spices were well put together - and not your classic Xmas or Pumpkin spicey beer. Unique, tasty and fun.

9th October 2008. GABF. A very dry and perfumed spicy beer. Fairly hot as is spicy not alcohol) finish. The overall feel of this beer reminded me of the dry spicy mix you get in Indian restaurants, Unusual beer!

nickd717 (4612) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 12, 2009
GABF 2009. Golden color with a small white head. Aroma is lots of spices - pepper and coriander especially, with orange peel and wheat. Flavor is wheat and orange peel and a crazy blast of spices that is a bit overdone. Loads of pepper. Body is medium and spices are prickly on the palate. Overall I’d say this is only average as the balance is just not quite there.
