2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale yellow body, awfully clear for the style, with a modest white head. The aroma has some wheat flakes to it supported by lemon and coriander. Kind of thin. It tasted of citrus juices, soft malt, and light spices. Drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear golden color. Hear was white with decent retention and some lacing. As one would expect, the aroma consisted of orange and coriander. Minimal sweetness on the tongue with nice malty cereal grain, citrus, and coriander flavors. The beer was a bit thin and lacked the yeastiness I had hoped for.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Light yellow with a smallish white head. Lemony, citrusy aroma was faint but good. However, this was thin and lacking in flavor or complexity.
