Bottle shared by goldtwins at a Bruery tasting. Pale golden, cloudy beer. Aroma is absolutely loaded with bright floral lavender, coriander, peach and soft wheaty spiciness. There is also a lot of character from the yeast in here... a very complex mix of phenolics and floral spiciness. Light sage and a zesty citrusy flavour. Soft lingering fruitiness as well. Rich wheaty texture with a nice spritzy texture. Very floral and complex... man, this is killer stuff. paiste2002 (186) - Saugus, California, USA - OCT 26, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 On tap at the Bruery. Pours a hazy golden color with a huge white head. Aroma is spicy, wheat, malt. Flavor is spicy, orange, malt and floral. A very balanced enjoyable brew, I’m glad they had a few bottles left. notalush (5955) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Thanks to goldtwins for sharing - effervescent, cloudy gold beer - huge herbal and floral aroma, with notes of orange peel, but nothing is overpowering - rich yet subtle - very full carbonation in the mouth - nice and dry, with flavors of citrus, melon and tropical fruits - slight herbal bitterness, with sage, and possibly rosemary - lingering white wine-like tannins in the finish - beautiful beer. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Poured a hazy light yellow color with a decent white head. The aroma was nice and strong. The aroma was floral, perfumey, and herbal. A good amount of spice as well with coriander, licorice and some lilac (or maybe it is lavendar) flowers. It smells like my shaving cream, but that is a good thing. Great floral andspice flavor with a light citrusy finish. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2008
On Tap at the Brewery, or Bruery if you want to be specific. Pours a very pretty orange with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and lucious, with tons of fruit. Taste is sweet and fruity, with some spice, extremely balanced and overall quite delicious.

750 ml bottle shared by goldtwins. Pours a cloudy gold that becomes mostly clear after a few minutes in the glass with a linen white head. Beautiful aroma of lavender, peach, dried orange peel, and some mild spice. This was probably the most aromatically satisfying beer of the evening. The flavor reminded me very much of a German Riesling with just a bit of spice. All the while, that lovely aroma continues to fill the nose. Lively and bright on the palate. Very, very nice. kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - SEP 20, 2008
On Tap at The Bruery. First Rating. Pours a beautiful golden yellow with white head. Aroma of biscuit, spice and citrus. This is a maltier and higher alcohol version of their wonderful Orchard White. Crisp and clean with bread, orange zest and spice coming through. Very smooth. A joy! mar (5456) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2009
