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.

Bottle. Orange/lemon peel and wheat malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Mildly sweet orange wheat malt and lightly bitter lemon/orange peel flavor. Clove in the finish. Body on the light side. Nice flavor but very light.

Pours a very clear yellow color tinted orange. An egg shell white colored head that dissipates quick. A zesty citrus aroma. Almost orange soap like. But probably the nose is the best area here. At first sip it’s a quiet lemon flavor. Almost like a dirty water thing. Then gets really thick and foamy. In a really off putting way. After the dirty lemonade feel starts to go a huge pepper spice hits hard. Not the normal peppercorn feel though. Much spicier. The feel really lingers on it dominates any other flavor. It doesn’t work with this brew. Not the best.

Pours slightly hazy, golden yellow, wee bit of thin white head, little thin lacing. Aroma coriander, orange peel, lemon grass, sweet bready malt, faint fruity esters. Taste subdued compared to aroma, spices coat the tongue, orange and lemon peel, more spice, dominated by coriander. Mouthfeel thin, medium carbonation, spice bites at the tongue, mostly dry finish. Overall ok, very spicy, needs more fruitiness, pretty drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2016 Rerate. Bottle shared with koleminer20, out of Dumpster Day box #1. Aroma is light, light orange, mostly wheat, some coriander and peppercorn. Appearance is dark golden, white head. Taste is...not there. Might be light peppercorn, mostly wheat and nothing. Nothing happening here. Mouthfeel is medium body and almost no carbonation, slight spice at the the end. Overall, yikes. Swing and a miss.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Bottle: Deep golden color, nearly amber with a wispy, white head that’s gone in moments. Aroma is a random hodge-podge of kitchen rack spices. Peppercorn is definitely discernible... Coriander is there, but not as heavily. Also get a nutmeg or spicy cinnamon-like note in there? Other random clashing of leafy & ashy spiciness, along with an intense, fruity spike that smells of bittersweet oranges & mild Lemon Pledge. Orange & lemon definitely more forward on the palate. Still getting a moderate solvent note, unfortunately, like lemon cleanser. Mid-palate is another clusterfuck of spices & flavors; coriander, clove, ash, herbal hops, bitter citrus rind, cinnamon, malty & toasted bread. Peppercorns come in hard & grow too powerful towards the end. The finish is nothing but peppercorn, like sucking on a pepper mill.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow gold with rapidly settling, small white head. No lace. Aroma is lemon and lime, strong citrus (reminiscent of cleaning product), some coriander, spice and sweet wheat in the background. Flavor is strong lemon, lime, orange, mildly sweet, fading into a mild and sweet wheat and coriander finish, hint of peppercorn/black pepper. Could use more wheat for flavor and body. Soft carbonation, medium-light body, and lightly chewy texture.

From a bottle. Lives up to its name, definitely spicy. Quite light, and refreshing. Not my thing, but interesting.
