3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, marked brewed May 2011 (from 2011 notes), poured into a pint glass. Some of the additional sediment in bottom of bottle added after the first few sips.
A - Hazy golden color, darker than a standard American lager, with a 1 finger of-white head. The head has moderate duration and leaves little lacing. Sediment (yeast?) in bottom of glass. Sediment suspended
Aroma: Mainly a moderately strong, fruity and yeasty. Hints of coriander. cloves & cinnamon in the nose The 7% ABV is partly apparent in the nose although mostly hidden upon tasting.
Taste: this is a surprisingly malty ale with a fine yeasty Belgian bent. a good bit of clove, and some mild tartness. Different from any beer I can remember and with very enjoyable flavor, finish and aftertaste.
M - medium-light body; well-chosen carbonation; semi-dry finish; lightly crisp.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the "World of Beer" in Cary, NC. This beer has a murky golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is of slight hops and some spice. The flavor is a nice blend of citrus and spice with some malt and hops. a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. A really good beer highly recommended.

Very nice light fruity smell, taste is a little more bitter and bold than a blue moon...more coriander perhaps? Not great and degrades a bit with time ..can?t place it...just a bit funky..think too much corriander...John says finishes with hay...I agree!
