On tap at Vine St. Pub, the bartender told us it was a pilsner but upon first taste it was clearly not a pilsner. Hazy orange color, really cloudy actually. Smells odd, grains and something else but what? The flavor was spicy and wheaty, reminded me of a Belgian wittier almost. Not a bad pint and easy to drink but not my bag overall.

On-tap at Freshcraft in Denver. Served in a 10oz Nonic.

A: Hazy straw with a small eggshell cap that quickly falls to a patchwork film. Leaves a small amount of lace.

S: Very spicy and floral. I picked up well balanced aromas of coriander, clove, lemon and lavender, plus a bit of straw. The beer's strong suit.

T: Light and fairly refreshing. The interesting mix of spices from the nose flow into the flavor to carry this beer. They ride on a backbone a dry biscuit malt flavors. Finishes with lingering floral flavors.

M: The medium body felt a bit under carbonated.

D: This is a nice change of pace beer. I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it.

A hazy golden, almost liquid gold pour. A small, strong head appeared then declined. Looked good.

Wit beer aroma mostly. Coriander, flowers, some orange and habiscus. Some faint yeasty biscuit in the background.

Flowers up front in the taste. Mix herbs and coriander come through atop a layer of light malt. Orange zest and a sprinkle of clove finish the beer.
Seems a bit filmy and the carbonation does a good job of providing some zip, perhaps could use some more.

Brewed by Wynkoop for the Denver Art Museum's King Tut exhibit. Had this one with a green chili cheeseburger at the Cherry Cricket. Pours an extremely cloudy, hazy medium golden color, with a 1/2 inch of so of dense white foam. Aromas of pale wheat, wildflower honey, and some subtle Belgian spicing. On the palate, I get a good amount of coriander, honey sweetness and some light brown sugar. Very reminiscent of a Belgian dubble, actually. A pretty nice effort.
