Bottle. Hazy yellow color with a minimal foamy head. Starchy dough-like aroma wih a trace of lemon. Off-sweet bready malt flavor with notes of light citrus, pear and lychee, though overall character was kind of pasty and starchy. Yeast notes of underripe banana. Light lemony zip on the finish. Medium bodied with light carbonation. The pasty/starchy aspects of this beer combined with the inflated price basically ruined it for me.

Nothing fancy, nor special. A good brew with a decent head/flavour overall. Donít go out of your way to try it, but donít pass it up if you have the chance to try it!

Pours light tan with some minor cloudiness, minor head. Floral aroma of hops with some warmth akin to cinnamon or coriander. Light body with a slightly acidic citrus note. Somewhat spiced. Very relaxed, refreshing, and drinkable.

very refreshing, smooth, tasty, different from other beers - almost distinctly different. Well worth seeking out and trying. Cleanses the palate and leaves no aftertaste.

Has a orange flavor to it which taints the flavor of the beer. Has little floating things in the beer which could be anything and didnít enjoy the taste of them. Liked the abundance of bubbles tho. Cost way too much to be a bad beer. Im gonna drown my sorrow in some more beer.

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 wasnít 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 doesnít strike me as coriander even though it is listed as such. Dry chalky finish. Mediocre wit.
