2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy dark golden yellow color that appears almost orange in the glass with golden banana colored hues when held to a light and a half finger fizzy white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Minimal lacing. Visible carbonation bubbling up.
Sweet citrus aroma with hints of earthy, bready yeast, subtle spice and crisp light fruit. I was expecting more of a zesty peppery/coriander presence but it’s more grassy with hints of straw and apple. Pale malt.
Medium bodied with more of a spicy character up front than the aroma suggests along with a crisp earthy hop presence. Slightly dry with hints of earthy grass and straw. Subtle bready yeast with slight alcohol sweetness along with hints of apple and pear. Very faint lemon peel/citrus presence toward the dry finish.
Overall, this beer was really off for the style and just didn’t taste very good. Thin, kind of bland and not worth the hefty price tag. I really like Baladin a lot but this was a disappointment.

Bottle. Pours a hazy slightly pale gold with a white head that dissipated completely. Aroma has a sweet wheat note with some light fruits, pears and apricots, with a bit of backing spice. Flavor was sweet with apricots and wheat with a bit of pear coming through and a growing spice note. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice and pungent wit aroma, head dissipates quite quickly and mouthfeel is a little light, but the finish is clean and dry as it should be, it is well made. I like this beer.

Typical lemon and coriander notes paired with an unexpected note of cardamom. Very light flavor with a light citrus-y-ness. Refreshing.
