3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
16th February 2013
Very hazy gold - amber beer. Good white head. Palate is airy and a little soft but with sharp fine carbonation. Creamy semi dry malt. Seltzer salty minerals. Like fruity tang underneath, trace of apple. Can’t really taste much of the exotic ingredients here. Comes over like a Belgian Wit albeit very smooth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared at the Craft Beer Co. - Clerkenwell, London, many thanks to Mike! Pours clear, yellow-gold with a good and sturdy white foam head. Lots going on in the nose, herbs and spices, coriander, doughy wheat, yeast. Medium to big sweet flavor with heavy wheat and yeast, faint lemon, white sugar. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly warming, with lots of sugary dough, yeast, white bread. It’s tasty stuff, if a bit sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly cloudy golden straw color with a white head. Aroma has a nice Belgian character to it of banana, mild coriander spiciness, and yeast. Fruity apple character with a touch of grass and white pepper. The coriander and yeast are more pronounced on the palate. Light apple flavor, decently fruity. Banana, a bit of grass, bread, and a light herbaceous quality. Not bad, but kind of watery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The marketing of this beer is unique, but a little bit silly. I didn’t pay for it. Hazy, blonde. The aroma has cilantro, other herbs, and general craziness. It’s all kind of muddled together in there, going nowhere in particular. More mellow on the palate, light body, with mellow spiciness and then the cilantro comes in late. Not that much cider character - they must have used a lousy one. Although from the description they used their own pressed juice, not cider.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very bizarre, full of apple cider upfront, with cilantro and other indiscernible spices. Flavour brings out notes of apples, some subdued spices, and no hint of the cilantro. The apple cider is basically what comes through here. Light palate, with no hint of the alcohol other than the warming effect. Decent beer – bizarre as always from Dogfish Head.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruit, complex spice and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy spice & sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & spice finish of moderate duration. My expectation where exceeded.
