3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an very cloudy orange color. Lots of sediment and white flakes floating around. One finger or so white head. Little retention and light lacing.
Aroma is orange zest, wheat, coriander and yeast. Meh.
Taste is very wheaty. Lots of banana. I taste some coriander. Did I mention banana? Slight orange zest, and white pepper.
Mouthfeel is full bodied. I don’t know that I could drink more than one at a time. It hides the alcohol very well. It has an weird chewy finish.
Overall, it’s okay. My bottle is almost a year old. A fresher one might be better. Okay, it would probably be better. Despite that, I would probably be willing to try it again, but I don’t know that I could recommend it. Someone mentioned that it reminded them of sour, and I would agree. It’s not terrible....

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy copper color with asmall hea d. Aroma of yeast, coriander, floral with citrus and fruit. Taste of citrus, fruity, mild malt sweetness bit of grain. Mild bitterness and a bitter-sweet finish. Fairly light body, smooth and well balanced as there is no hint of the 9% ABV. Nice beer from a regional brewer.

Hazy. Really fruity. No head. Banana. Surprised by alcohol content. Light body. Well done.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Snifter shows me a murky gold color with low carbonation. Nose is Belgian yeast dominate with orange, coriander and peaches. Flavor is sour orange peel, wheat and some light citrus notes. Coriander is subtle. Medium, nearly syrupy mouthfeel with a nice long sweet finish. ABV is completely masked. The aroma really made me what to drink this. The flavor is slightly off with the sour note. After one snifter, I had enough. Still drinkable and perhaps a fresher bottle gives a better result.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Banana/lemon, coriander, and malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow color with minimal head. Very sweet banana and malt flavor. Mild acidic/alcohol finish. Somewhere between a witbier and a tripel - not bad but very sweet.

Cask at the brewpub. It poured a cloudy golden color with an off-white head. The aroma was malty and yeasty. The taste was malty, citrusy some tartness, a little banana and corriander. A very good Tripel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 10/4/11
Aroma: The nose has notes of orange, citrus, corriander, other spices, and yeast
Appearance: It pours a somewhat cloudy golden-orange color with a fizzy white head
Flavor: The taste is rather sweet and fruity, lots of orange, with some more subtle yeast/spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, with a little tingle, and a decent finish
This is a fairly sweet and orange example of the style, with a slightly sour, citrusy feel. It is a solid beer, but I thought it could have been a little better. It felt a touch overly sweet to me, but I thought it still worked pretty well. I don’t really know how to feel about this one. My opinion changed a few times as I was drinking it, but I settled here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy orange with a slight, transient white head. Aromas of zest, yeast/spice, kandi and perfume! Maybe that should be floral. Med body, almost. Flavor is orange, arguably coriander, indeterminate grain, and yeast. Floral, kandi and perfume seem to be gone quickly. There is no trace of heat. Deadly lawnmower beer. It has that nagging taste usually found in tripels. Tripels - it’s a love - confused relationship. Anyway this one fits right in as the orange fatigues out somewhat. Nice drink.
