3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Rattle N Hum. Poured a hazed brown color. The coriander was big. Fairly citrus and floral aroma with a caramel malty base. Big coriander spice flavor that covers most of the malt and its sweetness. The spice helps give balance but then almost goes too much the other way. Medium to full bodied and warming.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at RnH. Pours deep amber brown with a thin head. A rush of coriander in the aroma, citric hops and a light malty sweetness. The coriander really helps to bring out hoppy flavors that aren’t as prominent in the other WWWW varieties. Light sweet malty notes as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very sweet and malty. Rich grain flavor with a bit of tang and spiciness (provided by the coriander, no doubt). A little sour-sweet juiciness. Good, but a little too sweet for me to really love it.
