I bought this on sale, but it was still kind of pricey. Good looker, great head. Not a ton of taste. Some citrus comes through, probably more orange peel than coriander. No tartness. They recommend this with risotto or chicken, and it probably will work better with food than alone. It reminds me a little of Estrella Damm Inedit.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a large foamy white head that retained well due to the vigorous carbonation level. The nose is pretty light and delicate, some Belgian yeast derived fruitiness, light coriander, bready maltiness. The flavor is pretty poor though, it’s a bit thin and has a bit of a soggy grain finish. Just a hint of coriander and even less of hops, there just isn’t a whole lot of complexity here. Light bodied and thin with fizzy active carbonation and a bit of a lingering pale malt finish. Not so good, this one. At $4 a 25 oz bottle at the local grocery store, it was worth a chance though.

Pours a very transparent gold with a large head which disappears quickly......aroma of slight earthiness, citrus......taste is lemon citrus, yeast, earthiness, wood notes, nice mouthfeel, just a touch of sour in the end. I’m not a Belgian fan but this is interesting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass; B335 0245 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep golden color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and hebral/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian pale ale. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

There is orange in both the nose and the taste, with a hint of coriander (a very small hint). It pours a beautiful golden color with mild head, and is incredibly smooth. The hops are overshadowed by the malts, giving the beer a sweeter, less bitter quality.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a white head. Smells initially lemony before giving way to some semi sweet malts, yogurt, banana hints, floral/grassy. Tastes dry and spicy with some chamomile notes on the finish. Enjoyable.

Bottle on sales at BOTW. Pours a hazy yellow/orange with some floating yeast. It has a big foamy head that rings the glass as it subsides. The aroma is very typical of the style as is the taste. It has a nice refreshing quality and is quite easy drinking. Thin body.
