Beer trading has become an increasingly popular hobby for many craft beer lovers. Trading allows us to get our greedy little paws on liquid beauties we otherwise would have to travel to obtain. I began trading a while back and it has become a frequent, but expensive, part in my life. If youíre interested in trading, which I highly recommend, check out The Beer Exchange to get started. I received this beer in a trade today along with some other beers I cant get in my area. I donít recall discussing it with the trader so I am just going to assume this was an extra he decided to throw in at the last minute.
The can describes it as a Belgian Style Cream Ale brewed with spices. If I hadnít read the can I would have assumed this was some sort of wit with a healthy addition of spices based on the way it smelled. Up front, I got a good amount of bittery citrus notes on the nose which leaned heavily on the sour lemon side instead of the more common sweet orange. I picked up other yet undecipherable spices in there, as well as a good dose of wheat.
Ermalís has a cloudy and hazy pale-orange appearance. I poured my 16-oz can into my New Belgian pint snifter and the head topped my glass with about two fingers before I could pour out the entire can. The head dissipates quickly leaving behind a micro-thin lacing that sticks around for the entire glass.
A big punch of lemongrass and an odd peppery sting were very noticeable on the palate. In the middle there is a slight grain and wheat sweetness with lots of straw and hay. It is hard to notice much after the big wallop of lemongrass and citrus at the front. The back end gives way to more of the peppery spice on top of grassy notes, a strong herbal bitterness and faint coriander.
Overall a very drinkable beer! Belgian wits (although this claims to be a Belgian Cream Ale) are not on the top of my favorite-styles list, but I can down a few of these. There is definitely a nice, welcoming twist on the Belgian wit style (Belgian Cream Ale styleÖ whatever) that Warped Wing brings to the table with this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow, generous fluffly head. A little bit of banana and spice on the nose, and some graininess, reminiscent of a tripel. Taste is less so - this is also very much a cream ale, which serves to mute the more interesting aromas and cover them with a somewhat full and watery, but not terribly effervescent mouthfeel. Comes across as an underachieving beer. Interesting concept, but doesnít totally deliver.

Location: sample on tap at tap room

Nose: faint, but certain aroma of cereal and yeast esters. Banana. Touch of clove.
Taste: Lightly roasted cereal. Cloying ester presence, but not too much. a bit of grain
Body: Light but creamy. Yea, clichť but correct.
Parting thoughts: a nice beer. not sure if Iíve had a Belgian cream before.

Nice, clean taste. Not overly sweet, the cream adds a lot to the beer. Awesome cams, the artwork is some of the best Iíve seen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild aroma of yeast esters, pours a cloudy light amber with a quickly fading thin white head. Mild grain flavor, with a touch of perceived sweetness from the yeast esters. Light bodied, easy drinking, but not my favorite twist on the Cream Ale style.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden beer with a loose white head. Light orange and spice nose. The first taste I get out of this beer is water. There is some stale orange peel citrus and a spice note that I like, but in general this is not something I want to drink again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Spicy slightly yeasty aroma and an orange, cloudy appearance.
Tight effervescence on the palate. Plenty of spice but a bit watery. Maybe just not my style.
