Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is very mild with some malt, spice, and slight citrus aromas. Taste is much the same with lemon zest, spice, and tea flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has some interesting flavors and a fairly subdued aroma until the beer warms up.

Slightly hazy straw/copper in color. Nice thick foamy white head.

Nose is heavy on spices. Cloves. Some floral notes. Interesting but odd.

Taste is off-putting. Lightly spiced water. Almost like an astringent, watered-down tea flavored with pear and nutmeg. No semblance of hops or malt.

Mouthfeel is watery.

Just not a good beer at all.

Very light yellow in color, almost like lemonade. The smell is of citrus and coriander or allspice. A light white head but it feels very bubbly on the tongue. Refreshing with a slight spiciness. A really nice Belgian White. I'll definitely enjoy drinking the rest of the samples in my Beer of the Month Club.

Poured from an ice-cold bottle into a room-temperature pint glass. This is my first beer from Cisco Brewers out of Nantucket, Mass.

Appearance - Very light amber in color; decent 2-3 finger head initially but it evaporated pretty quickly; weak frothing; appearance is probably this beer's weakest characteristic.

Smell - Amazing; I've never smelled a beer like this before; tremendous, spicy smell; smells like orange zest, cinnamon, black pepper, flowers.

Taste - Slightly bitter at first (like a sour Blue Moon) but as soon as my palate adjusted to it I could taste the spices, particularly the orange-zest, black-pepper…enjoyable overall.

Mouthfeel - Very comfortable; easy on the palate.

Overall - I really like this beer; obviously a wit beer; a sophisticated blend of spices; very light on the palate; a beer meant for mass consumption on a hot day. Very nice...
