Bottled from BevMo. Hazy yellow color upon pouring. Aroma is slighly sweet and yeasty. Quite a bit of spice and coriandor. Sweet yeasty flavor along with alot of spice. A little bit of tartness. Very crisp and refreshing, with alot of flavor. Slightly bitter finish.

Bottle, this was a pretty good wit. Had all of the standard "wit-ness". Nothing stands out, but it was definitely a solid brew and matched will with the sushi and spicey wasabi I was taking down.

Not a bad beer....but it also wasn’t great. It tasted sorta standard to me, nothing really distinctive about it. It was interesting to try, not bad overall though.

Well, this beer seems a bit overrated to me.... maybe I got a bad bottle. Pours dull hazy yellow with a small quickly disappearing head. The aroma is chalky, spicy and light sourness - the overall aroma is quite light. Medium / light body with a chalky feel and sharp unpleasant carbonation. Starts with a lemon-esque sourness along with chalky and grainly malt. The finish has spiciness that is accentuation by the carbonation - it doesn’t strike me as coriander even though it is listed as such. Dry chalky finish. Mediocre wit.

Bottle: Color is like dirty lemonade- dark and cloudy yellow. No real head or lacing to speak of. Aroma is light and airy of citrus, spice, and a little sweet. Has a nice taste of sweetness with some sour, wheat, and citrus notes. I liked on the whole, but its a bit pricey.

Bottle - first impression is that you’re drinking Lemon Pledge. No aftertaste, so it grows on you a bit.

From bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with thin off whtie head. Nose of orange peel, sour lemon, ginger and spice. Flavor is mostly sour, following the nose.

12 oz. bottle. Nice white head, gold color, and wonderful citrus aroma. The taste was simple, but very enjoyable, a citrus taste through and though. It was great with a thai chicken and grean bean with sweet chili paste meal.

12oz bottle, props to gputty! Murky dirty gold with a white head. Sweet orange rind nose. Unripe bitter orange flavor. Bleh! Not good.
