Here’s one I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed yet. Glad I checked.
This pours a clear gold with a cottony cap of white clouds.
The aroma has a pleasing orange-lemon-citrus note to it, and a hint of coriander.
Tastes clean and clear, with a refreshing quality. It’s a wheat beer? But with an English ale yeast? I liked it. Easy drinker.

Pours a hazy orange body with a small white head. Aromas similar to Belgian witbier but differs slightly due to replacing Belgian with California yeast. Sweet wheats with a lot of camomile and touch of coriander carry beautifully from the nose to the palate. Smooth texture and herbal tea finish make it even more exciting. Good stuff!

Bottle I brought to share at drewone's tasting.

Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, floral, spice, herb, and citrus-like aromas. Taste is much the same with herbal, spice, and floral flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earthy bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with an interesting earthy ingredient presence that comes through slightly better in the smell.
