look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle. Thanks to VinnieVanGogh for picking this up for me.

A- Pours a light hazed golden yellow color. Hard pour gives a one finger white head that shows poor retention. Some light streaks of lace on the sides of the glass.

S- The front of the aroma is mostly coriander, lemon, and orange. Wheat notes come through as the underbody. Ending of the aroma is light malts, pepper, and hints of alcohol. A very nice smelling beer with a touch of Short's to it.

T- Front of the beer is mostly citrus forward with the orange and lemon that slowly gets a spicing added to it with pepper and coriander. The middle of the beer showcases the wheat with a hint of bready malt as well. This wheat flavor goes to the ending of the beer with a last hint of citrus notes, light alcohol, and a balancing of spicey hops to end it out.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is a little light but not as much as other Short's beers. Citrus, pepper, and wheat are left on the palate. Aftertaste is sweet alcohol mixed with wheat, pepper, and hints of coriander. Light alcohol drying on the palate. Flavors were a little wheat forward until the hops in the backing balanced the beer out. No off flavors were present when I was drinking this beer.

D- The drinkability of this beer is good. A nice summertime beer that is a little spice forward but still not over the top. The ABV isn't too high which means a sixer can be easy to drink.

Notes from 8/11/10

Pours a cloudy golden brown with relatively little, quickly dissipating head.

Huge aroma of pepper and coriander, with faint hints of citrus zest.

The amount of pepper in the nose had me worried, but I'm loving it in the taste. As with the smell, pepper and coriander dominate, with the citrus zest more apparent than in the smell. Nice Belgian style spicing with a bit of wheat taste coming through.

Crisp light mouthfeel with the pepper tingling the tongue.

Very drinkable, even with the spiciness.

I cracked one of their summer seasonals, Nicie Spicie, which - like most of their brews - defies easy definition. It's basically a spiced wheat ale, with orange zest, lemon zest, coriander and peppercorn. None of these come through in any dramatic fashion, aside from a little citrus-ey coriander, but it is interesting, regardless of my aversion to spice and fruit beers.

It pours a deep yellow - kind of like extra Vitamin C in your first visit to the powder room - with virtually no head to speak of. Bright and clear, with a hint of lacy yeast at the bottom of the bottle, it has a very mild fruity nose and rolls over the palate with the aforementioned citrus spice. Thin in body and clean in finish, this does go nice with lighter dishes and drinks very easy, despite some mild astringency. The fruitiness is not extreme and it may appeal to some fruit beer drinkers without offending the sensibilities of those who are not.

Unfortunately, the "drinkability" is probably its most generous characteristic as I've certainly had better efforts among wheat ales, fruit beers, and from Shorts in particular. While this may have been due to a slightly aged bottle, this one was a bit of a disappointment.

A- Pours a hazy golden yellow with a very thin white head. Head is gone in a flash leaving behind a few bubbles and pretty much no lacing.

S- I first thought this some was some sort of witbier since the nose is fairly close to it. A bit of pepper, yeast, lemon and coriander are the things I'm picking up the most.

T- This one really follows the nose well. Lemon, coriander pepper and yeast dominant this brew. I'm diggin this one.

M- Fairly light in both body and carbonation.

D- Other than Shorts IPA's this one is really doing it for me. I like it.

A: color is nice, golden with amber hues. not much head or lacing to speak of. what was, dissipates very quickly.
S: heavy heavy on the lemon and peppercorns. they actually truly dominate, and i like the variation of the style by adding the peppercorn. i guess if you really dig, you can find the orange zest hidden, and the spices also do the same, at least on the nose. the more i sniff the more i just feel overwhelmed by pepper. im rating high because its refreshing to find something a little different that actually works.
T: all of the above, but the pepper backs up ever so slightly, and the orange actually pulls through a little more. im not sure if i actually like the way it tastes, but again i have to admit its interesting and will score well again. i like the fact that the citrus is more up front on the palate.
M: its zestiness is refreshing and potent at the same time. the part i like is the little bit of heat the peppercorns give it in the back of my throat, but overall its a little on the flat side.
D: it gets a little easier to drink after a while, when my palate gets used to the peppercorns. pretty enjoyable.

Yellow to golden and slightly hazy but almost clear. Not a ton of head but ok lacing.

Smells like ginger and lemons with assorted other spices, notably pepper. Very good.

Tastes much like the smell, kinda wheat beer like with lots of lemon, a touch of ginger, plenty of pepper. A tasty brew that would go great with food!

Mouthfeel is slick, spicy, tangy and medium bodied. You get a bit of a tang from the spices.

Drink is quite good. I'd like to have this brewery available to me all the time.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Sam Adams pint glass. It poured a hazy, pale golden color with a thin white head to it. he head was scattered and thin, but remained well into drinking it.

The aroma shows a lot of zesty citrus to it. The lemon and orange zest give it a fresh but rindy like quality to it. The coriander adds to the citrus while the peppercorn is more reserved and only offers a hint of spice.

The taste shows more of the peppercorns through the flavor. They give it some spice up front but it turns more peppery in the finish. The zesty citrus is present throughout the beer as well. It has a bit of a bitter rind like quality to it, but it's on the sweeter side overall. The finish mixes the fresh citrus and pepper which seems a bit odd but yet good.

The mouthfeel is on the lighter side with moderate carbonation. Drinkability is decent, it was an interesting beer for sure. The peppercorns went together with the citrus better then I thought they would. It was pretty refreshing as well, the citrus especially tasted fresh and bright. Pretty good beer overall.

thanks to jdiddy for this one.

poured cold and aggressively from the bottle a murky sunlight gold to a dogfish head shaped pint glass with a hint of a head that lasted shorter than the time it took to identify its color.

aroma citrus, orange zest and great big black peppercorns. interesting.

very spicy, oranges, lemon, yeasts. very enjoyable, nice for the season.

light bodied, smooth, highly carbonated.

drinkable - very.

Acquired from tburkhart, courtesy of the Under 100 IV BIF so a big "Thank You" goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light cloudy gold color, with a very thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains coriander, lemon, orange, pepper, light malts, wheat and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with sweet citrus flavors of lemon and orange followed by spicy flavors of coriander and pepper. Then some mild bready flavors come in from wheat and a thin malt character. The hops presence is faint but provides some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little smooth and a little crisp but kind of watery, light body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, this beer is exactly what it claims to but there are several others like it that are better.

12oz bottle picked up in MI a few months ago, newly rediscovered in the back of my refrigerator. It pours a like a somewhat dark pilsner, clear and golden colored, orange tint, thin foam that laces in chunks.

The peppercorn and coriander come through strong in the aroma. Behind these it's tough to pick out any hops or whatnot, but that's OK, I like pepper. And the taste is the same, strong peppery spices. Like a Chouffe minus its yeast and plus pepper. This is addictive stuff, I wish I'd bought a 6-pack.

Medium body and extremely tasty, easily in the top 3 from Shorts for me.

Bottle courtesy of mikesgroove, thanks again!

Pours a bright gold color, a little haze, and a very faint head that quickly vanished. Not the prettiest looking beer.

Aromas are of citrus, lemon, oranges, limes, and mixed spices.

Taste is pretty mellow. Light creamy malts, some spices, lemon zest, and some tartness. Finish is dry with light grapefruit hops.

Mouthfeel is ok, but thin on the finish.

Drinkability is pretty good. This is a refreshing beer, and would be pretty nice in the summer. I've enjoyed the Shorts beers I've tried so far except this one. I expected more flavor, this turned out to be kind of blah, with quite a few flaws. Not a bad beer, but not all that great either.

First of all, a huge thanks to erikkoppin for sending this great beer out to me. Cheers!

Appearance - Pours a ruddy straw/golden color into my Bell's Tulip. About a finger of stark white head is achieved with a moderate pour that dissipates relatively fast leaving slight lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell - Wow. Short's, how do you get a beer to smell so damn good. As the description states, and as it clearly smells as such, there is a huge hit of lemon zest and orange rind. The coriander and black peppercorns are definitely more subdued and only noticeable once the initial citrus aromas dissipate. I am sniffing this beer over and over again. Extremely good smelling.

Taste - Similar to the nose, however, the peppercorns and coriander are the first flavor my mouth distinguishes. However, the lemon zest takes over next but ends on a sweet yet bitter (oxymoron?) note from the orange rind. The flavors are very pronounced and easy to pick apart.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, slight dry finish from the citrus.

Drinkability - From the name of the beer I was expecting something a bit crazier. After reading the description I realized this might be an enjoyable beer. After now drinking the beer, I can definitely say this IS an enjoyable beer. Granted I don't think I'd put a six pack down of these, but I'll be damned this is a tasty beer that is extremely quaffable. Short's has done it again. Great beer.

A - This pours a hazy golden color, and has a small 1-finger white head. The head left decent lacing as it fell.

S - Smells of light malts, coriander, nutmeg, peppercorns, and citrus form the lemon and orange zest.

T - The taste is similar to the nose. You get wheat and light malts first. Then, you get the spices. You can taste the coriander, nutmeg, hops, and peppercorns, which also add a little heat. The citrus notes come in at the finish, which is also slightly bitter.

M - The mouthfeel is good. It has a medium body and medium carbonation. It goes down smooth.

D - The drinkability is pretty good. It goes down real easy, and it is pretty refreshing. This isn't usually the style of beer that I drink, but I think overall it's a pretty good beer. I probably wouldn't seek it out, but I'd drink it again.

Poured into a pint glass
A: Aggressive pour with a swirl yields 1/2 finger of fizzy white head with poor retention. Cloudy lemon gold liquid. I'd like better head retention.
S: Citrus, coriander, subtle black pepper, phenolic yeast. Very nice, complex and delicate.
T: One of the least wheaty/yeasty wheat beers I've had. Pronounced lemon flavor. Black pepper is subtle at the entrance, coriander is in the finish. Nice though a bit bland. Bready overall. I'd like more black pepper or more hops to make it less bland.
M: Bright and smooth. A tad green/starchy is the only negative.
D: Good, I'd probably order again, but I would not buy a sixer.

poured in a MJ tasting glass.

Pours a hazy gold with no head, whatsoever. Not even a thin whisp of foam on top. Carbonation evident with tons of tiny bubbles (Don Ho?) flowing up the side of the glass.

Aromas of citrusy hops, citrus zest (lemon and (?) orange). Has an orange Gatorade aroma.

First sip is of thin orange gatorade, chalky, like club soda. (Must be a theme tonight.) Reminds me of orange alka-seltzer. A little medicinal.

Mouthfeel is thin, a bit watery. Again, much like club soda.

Drinkability is okay. Not what I was expecting. Very strange beer. Hard to even describe it as a beer. Not sure I would seek this out again. Would not drink if this was the only beer on tap. Not that special.

Reviewed from notes made on 10/24/10.

A: Pours a fairly clear gold with a slight amber hue into a medium sized snifter. An off-white half finger head burns off to leave a swirly film on top. Tiny carbonation bubbles move quickly from bottom to top of the glass. The lacing is a bit dull with long thick curves and big dots.

S: Nicie is heavy on the peppercorn with a healthy odes of the orange and lemon zest in my nose. I detect a little wheat and a bit of a bread backbone.

T: The citrus zest flavors steal the limelight with the peppercorn and coriander bleding into the citrus taste. The wheat beer base is present in the taste profile, but it definitely takes a backseat to the adjuncts. The taste is also pretty watery.

M: The mouthfeel is a bit thin. The body of the beer feels very light, and the peppercorn sparkles a little on my palate, but it really doesn't pop as much as I thought it might.

D: Is Nicie easy to drink? Yes. But it interesting enough to explore more? For my tastes, probably not.

A.

looks like a standard American lager. Straw colored beer. not much head. nothing really fancy.

S.

I'm getting the citrus zest and pepper smells. nothing really strong, but decent smelling. Maybe some other spice in there.

T.

Same as nose. The pepper, coriander, and some lemon zest. Some subtle grainy malt in there. Spicy taste lingers a little bit in the mouth.

M.

light bodied and low carbonation.

D.

decent. A decent tasting beer, not really great. Alcohol is low but Short's brews are hard to come by in Indiana. Light bodied makes it easy to drink.

Bottle poured into a weizen glass.

A- A gentle pour left a slightly hazy, golden-yellow body. A yeast pour really clouded it up. After both a gentle and a more aggressive pour on the second bottle, I only got about a 1/2-finger, white head that drops pretty quickly to a film. Carbonation was moderate. Sticky rings were quite good. Overall, nice body but disappointed with the head retention.

S- Lots of citrus initially (mostly lemon). Lighter, black pepper accents. Citrus turns a little toward a sour orange on further review. Peppery qualities are upped with a little warmth.

T- There's a nice interplay of citrus fruits. Lemon and orange combine and come off as a sour orange or nearly grapefruit-like. Pepper comes in just behind and really steps up with a little warmth. There's a toasted bread backbone. Citrus and pepper both come through the finish to leave a slightly puckering (though pleasant), clean end.

M- It's slightly grainy, which I call good for the wheat style. Lighter carbonation. There's a little citrus bite.

D- Great. The fruit and spice kind of land this beer between an American Wheat Ale (as described on the bottle) and a Saison. It reminds me a lot of a homebrew I've done a couple times based off of a Randy Mosher recipe for a Saison where I combine orange and grapefruit with grains of paradise. A good switch-up from a traditional APWA. Pleasantly surprised (as I took from the name that it might be more of a fall/winter spiced beer).

so i decided last night to break out 10+, thats right 10+ new shorts beers for a nice sampling with the family. turns out my and my brother in law were the only ones willing to go down this road, so long afternoon for sure. serve cold and consumed on 10/02/2010.

loving this one i had a soft spot for nice spiced beers and this one hit the spot for me. nice light brown pour fills the glass and leaves a nice and very sustainable top of light fizze head that gives it some nice depth.

the aroma is a very big blend, a kitchen since, or spice rack if you will as i am picking up copious notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, ample apple notes, brown sugar and touches of light citrus. at first you would not think this would work, but hell yeah it does. as i take the first sip I am struck by how well this is working for me. really nicely put together with light body that is crisp, clean and does wonders for keeping the large amount of flavor in check. starts with a healthy dose of citrus like flavors that roll into a spiced brown sugar and ends with a nutmeg and cinnamon led charge of nice spiced, holiday like flavor. smooth and dry finish with crisp cutoff only serves to perpetuate this.

overall this was beyond solid and something i was thrilled to be able to drink last night. hogged this whole bottle to myself.

Pours a medium brown with an off white head. Smell is initially quite odd; there's just so much going on and I'm not sure it really all fits together that well. The spices are together a nice touch, but I think the peppercorns get to be a bit of overkill. The hops are nice, though, and lend a nice touch in the flavor as well. The spices are a bit excessive there, and I find the pepper to be distracting (not nearly as good as it was in the Anniversary Ale 2009). Mouthfeel is a bit dry and spicy, and drinkability is really affected by all these factors.

On-tap.

Pours a hazy golden color with a one-finger bright white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of muted light malts with moderate amounts of a combination of spices - white pepper, nutmeg, and coriander. Also present are mild amounts of wheat twang and floral hops that intensify as the beer warms.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Light malt flavors with mild amounts of wheat twang kick things off. Joining in shortly thereafter are muted spices - coriander mostly but with hints of clove and spicy hops. The spices fade out allowing the malt and wheat flavors to carry through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I had no problems finishing my glass and could have another.

Overall this was a good enough beer but all of the flavors seemed somewhat muted. Not worth seeking out but not worth avoiding either.

Golden hazed body capped by a two finger white head. Retention is nothing to write home about, razor thin cap is left with little lacing clinging to the glass.

Aroma is a pleasant blend of spices, citrus and grain. Coriander and peppercorns provide a large portion of the aroma. Orange citrus scent and a grainy, doughy malt settle in behind.

Flavor combines many of the same characteristic which were identified in the nose. Cascade and Ahtanum hops in combination with the lemon and orange zest provide a substantial citrus flavor. The peppercorn is a bit of the wildcard, lends a unique spiciness to beer. Heat from the pepper provides warmth without becoming too hot. Subtle malt contributions, just a bit of breadiness.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finish is slightly dry though certain flavors tend to linger a bit.

I do enjoy this beer though it is not my favorite style. The flavors work well and are generally enjoyable. It would not be hard to enjoy a few of these in a sitting, though would not be my first choice. Personal preference aside, Nicie Spicie is a very well crafted beer.

Thanks, yet again, to malty as I work my happy way through all of the Short's that's piled up in the fridge & cellar. Reading the ingredients & spicing in this one, I'm anticipating 100% bliss or a fragrant train wreck.

Pours like an old Shasta Cream Soda, cream y orange. The smell is a wheat ale that's been hollowed out & stuff with a handful of Christmas spices; I'd like to say I can pick them out individually, but no. Just smells like a full spice rack.

Nicie Spicie comes out of the gates like a wheat beer, grassy, waving, probably seeded out on top. Then the wave of spice obliterates the hint of light prairie. The peppercorns crest the tsunami, & do a number on whatever follows, muddling up the balance of the spicing into a muddy Christmas pie of overkill. Coriander eventually pops its head up briefly.

Well. This is a one-and-done for me. Appropriate to Christmas time, perhaps this should be repackaged as one of the hundreds of YuleTime brews that seem to appear each year in Nov-Dec. This beer, well, I'm not a fan. The spicing is harsh & biting, where I prefer subtlety, & the wheat beer underneath is just about completely lost in the madness. Worth a try, but doesn't rise above the pack of spiced beers on steroids.
