Essentially like UFO white, except much better. Spices complement the beer well and bring it together.

Draught. This is a nice session brew with a big flavour to keep it exciting.

Still wrapping up notes from the 2011 Midwest Brewers Fest. Tawny yellow color beer. A little bit of head from a small bottle pour. Nose has some bubblegum ester and some yeast to it. Nice Belgian dubbel flavor of light malts and more ester, no distinctive hops. Just settles in very well as a session ale.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Slightly hazy light golden color with a medium white head, decent retention. Spicy yeast aroma, with light fruitiness, fresh bread and some herbal notes. Sweetish light malt, some citrus flavors, low bitterness and faint spicy snap. Light-med body, pleasant and easy to drink, refreshing and quite OK.

The beer pours decent with a golden hazy color, white head and well carbonated. The beer has little sediment and almost no lacing. The smell is definitely wheat and citrus notes with some mild spices on the back end. The taste is decent with a nice crisp wheat taste instantly and some citrus, almost corriander flavor, and possible a honey taste. The mouthfeel is okay with a crisp wheat flavor that lingers on for a while. Overall, this is a nice summer beer from Smuttynose but nothing you slam on your breaks to stop and get.

Nose full of citrus. Soft malt. Hardly any phenols. A soft malt flavor with some cracker like notes. Dry finish. Not very tart. Ok. Very consumable. ---Rated via intercellular device

VT (2526) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
355 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is oranges, pears, spices. Flavor is orange, unripe pear, wheat, coriander, salt. Finish is very dry, very bitter (floral and herbal notes, mostly). Light body, watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. An alright, refreshing, very dry session ale.

napes22 (6) - New York, USA - AUG 24, 2013 does not count
Advertised as a Session Ale with Spices, but I didn’t taste all that many spices. The beer almost seemed watered down and a little mild.

Bamsen78 (5668) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with small white head. Clear aroma of hops, malt with touches of citrus. Bitter, hoppy flavour with a sweetish malty flavour and a subtle roasty note. Grainy aftretaste. OK but a little dusty and a trifle unbalanced.

MiP (16083) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle. Coriander and peppercorn aroma. Clear golden colour. OK stable white head. The flavour is a little watery, has some rough bitterness. Sugary and bitter. Not as spicy as expected.
