Can, courtesy of martin00sr. Pours hazy pale yellow with airy white head. Clear, strong aroma of fruit, citrus, flowers and hops. Rough, estery and grainy flavour, with hoppy notes and distinct touches of citrus. Boozy aspects of sparkling wine. Rough aftertaste. Nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, 5.5%. Faint lemon peel aroma, the coriander seems to be hidden behind it. Cloudy pale yellow colour. Fizzy, unstable white head. The flavour is citric and yeasty with a little paper. Vinous aftertaste, like cheap champagne or white wine. Also a rough bitterness in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12/13/13 can, drunk 2/17/14
White head fizzles away to nothing almost as fast as I can pour, while the beer looks a cloudy peach with some bubbles rising.
Doughy nose shows off lemon sponge cake-like notes of malt and yeast combined, with strong coriander spiciness drying the finish. Other than the doughiness from the yeast, the aroma seems pleasant, if somewhat underwhelming.
Fizzy yet firmly carbonated, the spices don’t dominate the flavor, but do assert themselves quite well, lending lots of black pepper notes and citrus dryness. It balances the lightly sweet pale malts and the yeastiness also adds some light fruitiness. Nice and dry overall, with enough carbonation to make it very quenching. Good stuff, not reinventing the wheel here, but extremely drinkable.

12 oz can. Misty yellow orange with a brief head. Nose is wheat, lemon zest, vanilla and coriander. Crisp, clean and eminently quenching especially after an hour of snow shovelling. Taste is lemonade, green banana and coriander. Simple, classic wit with a Cigar City tropical twist. Cool stuff.
