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.

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...

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.

22oz bomber pours semi hazy deep gold with an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts, Belgian yeasty spices, tangerine, lime and orange peel. OK. The taste has sugary sweetness running into orange and lime peel kind of citrus tartness. This doesn’t really do it for me.
