Bottle from Premiere, not the freshest thing on the shelf. Decent wit, though I would liked real orange peel, not flavour added. Good drinkability.Smooth mouthfeel.

Bomber. Pours hazy orange straw colored with 1-finger white head. Nose is limey citrus, orange zest, coriander, malt. Tastes spicy, with big coriander, limey citrus, some mid-palate yeasty notes, and orange zest in the finish. This is a solid white ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
My Bottom Line:
Potent sweetness and boastful coriander spiciness don milky, whipped cream-like aspects in this over-the-top Imperial Witbier/Double White.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the cloudy beige.
-The carbonation is prickly, yet the body feels way too sugar heavy.
-I like coriander, but this is just too much.
-Dry this up a bit and it might become drinkable. As is, it drinks like a Barley Wine, and that just doesn’t work with such a spicy, fruity profile, imho...
