10/5/2010: Thanks to Shorts Brewing for giving me a shout on their Twitter page. I made a twitter for my blog a few months back, but its kind of a pain to keep updated. Plus the phrase “tweeting” kind of makes me feel funny ha. Oh and yes this beer is in a tulip. Short’s breaks rules with the ingredients the brew with, so I felt the need to break a beer rule myself.

The last spiced wheat beer I had was White Magick of the Sun from Voodoo Brewing, and it was way over-spiced. The nose of Nicie Spicie is well…nice; Lots of citrus and pepper. Flavor has a great balance to it and I would describe it as “juicy” for a wheat. Lemon and Peach are in the mix, and the peppercorn/coriander gives it just a little bit of heat. A lot of beers that use wheat have this hay-like flavor, but no sign of it here. Very nice crisp/bubbly/creamy mouthfeel. As is the case with most of Short’s Brew’s, this one was very unique and worth giving a try!

Picture of the day: Wow, very odd phone charger. What is wrong with people.
