Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
One finger of head on a clear, light straw colored body. The aroma is light and airy. Smells like sweet corn and candy. I actually like it though. The taste is mildly sweet with a nice dryness and a touch of fruit. The texture is light and bubbly with moderate carbonation. It packs some great flavor into a lighter beer. I like it.

KoRoBeNiKi (127) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Hazy yellow color with a slight white head. Aroma is spice (mostly coriander,) wheat, years, fruit, and coriander. The Coriander is strong enough to make an impression and make it very refreshing but not too strong to be overpowering. Very solid!

Andy_ (985) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2015
330 ml bottle @ Nordic
Straw yellow lightly hazy beer with dense white head. Aroma has coriander, belgian yeast, pineapple and fruit candy sweetness. Also light tartness. Flavor has coriander, citrus nad yeast. Palate is quite thin and foamy. Finish has long but quite mild bitterness. Aftertaste has coriander, yeast, citrus and lime. Aftertaste is watery. Adding in the sediment adds up the haziness and musty yeastiness. Quite mild in all ways and lemonadey.
