Michigan, United States

Notes / Commercial Description:
Nicie is an American Wheat Ale brewed with orange zest, lemon zest, coriander, and a hint of peppercorn. Orange-gold in color and light in body, Nicie is infused with the scents and flavors of fresh citrus. The subtle taste of coriander and spice of peppercorn makes this ale both refreshing and complex. Nicie is the perfect accompaniment to a summer day.

Pours a super clear golden hue with very little head. Nice spicy aroma that fills the nose. Really spicy and wheaty smell. Very interesting in the taste department. A little overly peppery I'd say, it kind of takes over the whole beer. A fair bit of sweetness and citrus, but only mildly noticeable with the pepper. Very thin and disappears pretty fast. Very interesting, but overall not the best.

12oz bottle into a wine glass

A: Pours clear, very light golden color with 3 fingers of white head - lots of lively carbonation. Amazing head retention.

S: Tons of spices (as expected) - peppercorn, ginger, lemon zest, coriander. A very light breadiness.

T: Again, peppercorn, but with a stronger citrus note than in the aroma. A fairly strong ginger flavor as well, reminiscent of a nice ginger ale. There is little to no malt or hop flavor.

M: Very light with lots of carbonation.

O: I wish it had a bit more to back up the spices, but this is a very nice summer beer (drank in the middle of winter).
