Got this from my BOTM shipment. Golden in color. It has a hazy or cloudy look to it. The bubbly white head shows up but fizzes away quickly. Strong citrus notes; I'm mostly picking up lemon. Kind of grassy notes as well. An acidy bite to it at first. Definitely citrus as the main attraction. I get the feeling of spices but am not advanced enough to pick any out specifically. A very fizzy mouthfeel upfront. But it seemed to lose some carbonation as I got further along and seemed borderline flat at the end. Like I feel about a lot of beers, I think this beer could hit the spot at the right moment such as after a hot day on the golf course where something thirst quenching would fit the bill. Probably won't pick this one out again but will try some others from Shmaltz for sure.

Pours a murky honey yellow-orange with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spice, mint, herb, and pickle juice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, herb, and pickle juice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of herb 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 with odd but interesting mint and pickle juice qualities that I wasn't expecting.

Bought a bomber from Windham Wine & Spirits in Willimantic, CT. Poured into a pint glass. A bit of bubbly foam and lots of carbonation. A pleasant enough white ale with definite coriander spice in the swallow. That flavor lingers on a bit too much for me, burning my throat after a while. Overall, it is definitely an interesting spiced beer, but I'm not sure I would be jumping at the gun for a try of this again.

Very heavy gold...lots of carbonation. White head. Coriander and pale malt. Not as fruit forward as expected. Clean and grainy. Grass and yeast. Some really pleasant sourness. Tart and soft. The beer has a moderate bitterness and a lot of spice flavor. Great on a summer day.
