The thyme has a nice balancing character between the coriander and lemon peel.

Poured into a "Young's" pint glass @ Sir Edmund Halley's in Charlotte, NC.

Clear clean beer w/a soft mellow head and thin lacing. The malt is present and pleasant, another reviewer mentioned a cereal taste - and I concur. There's a slight bitterness from the hops and a lot of bread. It's a very good example of the style and I look forward to having another... in just a minute. Check it out.

Pours cloudy, light orangeish gold. Thick, tall, white head fades after a while to a lasting cap and good lacing.

Smells yeast Funk, spices, citrus, malts and hints of fruit.

Tastes bready malt, side and light fruit. Fades to a bitter citrus peel and coriander. Dry finish with a short spice and light bitter linger. Medium body and fizzy lower carbonation

Starts off great, but far too much thyme in the finish.

Pours a hazy light yellow gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, fruity and sweet. A medium to light bodied witbier. The malts are fruity, cereal and sweet. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. Crisp and clean, slightly citrusy. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
