Hazy lemon yellow color with a whipped egg white head. Spicey lemon/lime nose with hints of orange peel. Light crisp taste. Coriander spice, bitter orange peel, citrus, lavender and herb flavors. Subtle yeast taste in the finish. Not a bad version of a Wit. Thanks to Skyview for the bottle. islay (2820) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 18, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Strong, tart, yeasty aroma of orange, lemon, and garlic. Pours a sparkling, hazy, pale, yellow/gold with a large amount of near-white head. Produces thick, extensive lacing. Wheaty aroma features citrus, herb, spice, celery, paprika, and onion tastes. Intriguing herbal aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth, frothy, and soft in the palate. Summit Scandia won’t blow anyone away, but it is an interesting, well-made ale well-suited for sipping while sitting by a Minnesota lake on a sunny Saturday afternoon. brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Yeasy and husk grain aroma, with a smidget of orange peel, sprtizey grain taste with the thinnest touch of orange peel ,theres a slight psyche on immenent sweetness ,that instead becomes orangey dry bitterness,very light enen for this light style timjertson (27) - Waseca, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Nice thick head, lovely deep color, dark for a white ale. Cardamom really comes through, with the orange and other spice nicely in the background. A little heavy on the finish, but if you throw out the styles and just taste the beer it’s pretty fun. Wwell worth trying. BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2007
12 ounce bottle. Weizen glass. Pale cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma was of yeast and citrus. Taste was similiar to a wheat beer with notes of citrus, orange peel, lemon and sweet spices.

Cloudy honey yellow pour with lots of foamy white head. Spicy nose with a well blended mixture of the advertised spices with coriander most evident. Similar taste with a wheat finish. Stine (1793) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Clear diluted piss color. Aromas of light gin with lime tonic water or diet citrus soda. Tastes somewhat grassy with astringent notes, lacking the nuance of the spices that are hidden too well. Very dry. Artificial sweeteners, pear skins and nuts. Chalky and sour lime finish, surprising and lasting. Strange one.

Straw in color and hazy. Medium white colored head. Aroma is herbs and slight lemon and orange. Flavor is strong wheat with heavy spice notes. Spicy finish. I loved this brew coupled with a spicy barbaque sandwich. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 2, 2007
In the bottle at the Crescent Moon Sunfest. Pours cloudy light yellow gold with a thin white head. Unusual aroma of spiced canned meat. The flavor is a combination of yard mint and potted meat. Fairly good bitter finish. mybrainhurts (397) - North Dakota, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Cloudy, golden yellow pour. Thick and dense head plopped on top. Aroma of yeast, citrus fruits, and spicy grains. Flavor is lemony, tangy, and malty. A bit acidic and fizzy at the finish. Decent.
