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

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2009
UPDATED: APR 9, 2009 Highly quaffable beer that has too much flavor for a session. I was drinking this back to back with Struise Tjseeves (10% abv BSA) and they tasted remarkably similar, so, that should tell you something. Very nice sugars in this one with lemon and light fruits and snicker doodle type yeastiness that is champagne crisp. Glad I tried this one. I liked the Portsmouth, but this may be better.

The beer has a great, subtly cloudy color, which goes with a vague wheat flavor mixed with spices. There is flavor throughout this ale which gives it a high rating, for me in that Belgian tradition.

Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2008
draft at BT. 12 oz pour holds its head up well. Ara of mellow sweet grains and musty dust. Flavor is fresh without being too crisp, more full bodied then expected. Malts are pretty pronounced here with some creaminess I usually get from sucking the nitrous oxide from whipped cream cans in the supermarket. the non cloyong honey notes are a nice touch. Not bad stuff.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - MAY 25, 2008
draft at BT. Hazy orange in color with a little white head. Fruity malty spicy aroma. Honey sweet notes. Malty sweet grain flavor. Coriander orange notes. Creamy and crisp tasting. Dry finish. Medium bodied. Very enjoyable.

thornecb (6192) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2009
Pours hazy orange-amber into a snifter. Bright white head quickly recedes to sicken surface. Sweat coriander and wheat aromas. Crisp with bitter hops from front to back. Astringent hop to marshmallow finish.

3.9
BigBen2120 (687) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 17, 2009
12oz bottle purchased as part of a multi-12pack at Shaw’s in Derry. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow body with a short-lived inch of off-white head. Smells citrussy, slightly pulpy and pithy, with some lemon zest and hints of of grassy and floral hops. Tastes initially malty, with some pepper, lemon, orange, with some huskiness, hints of honey, butter, grass, and some slightly floral notes. Light and effervescent on the palate with a fair bit of carbonation, making this brew a fairly easy drinker. Not the best example of the style, the slight huskiness adds a slight astringency in my opinion, though this is still a pretty easy drinker. Not a bad summer beer.

nuplastikk (6633) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2010
12oz bottle. Orange tan color, looks filtered. Steady, creamy, off-white head. Doughy, sweet aroma. Medium bodied, a pretty awesome beer. Creamy, with doughy, sugary notes. Moderate but solid hop balance gives it a nice, sandy. Moderate spicing really mellows it out. Whereas most US beers that even get near spices go for the overkill, this one is smooth and refined. Almost like a Belgian Cream Ale. Worth seeking out.
