Huge orange aroma with subtle spicing. Smells a bit like a Christmas clove orange. Flavor is medium sweet with more orange and baking spices. Superb.

Pours a golden orange, very exhuberant white head with nice lacing. Aroma is strong lemon, orange, coriander and various spices. Taste is initially bitter with a sweet finish. High carbonation has the beer dancing on your tongue and enhances the finish.

Tap GLB. Aroma is sweet with banana and cotton candy. Taste is similar. Nice body and smooth but has the gummy taste. Some citrus and light bread make it better.

Bomber; thanks Alex!! Pours clear dark gold with thin white head; big dose of coriander, orange peels and lemons; smooth, light texture with a touch of ginger; easy drinking with oranges and just a little yeasty character; maybe a little spruce too; not to complex and definitely heavy on the coriander, but quite nice overall

(22 oz. bottle (stamped "110309") from Louís Beverage Barn) Pours cloudy golden with a tall off-white head in my weizen. Aroma of citrus and spice. Mouthfeel smooth, refreshing. Flavor of citrus-orange and a building spice-coriander note towards finish. Spice-coriander aftertaste. Not a knockout but a pleasant, refreshing witbier.

On Tap at the Long Trail Brewery. Cloudy Golden Color with white head. Citrus aroma. Citrus taste with corriander and alcohol burn finish. This beer is pretty much the same as the belgian white but the coriander is more potent and the stong alcohol finish.

Pours a clean orange-yellow with a touch of white head. Pleasant fruity aroma of strawberry, orange, bread, and bubble gum. Flavor of wheat, orange, and strawberry. Thereís a touch of sweetness with just a hint of citrus hops in the finish. Light and crisp body. Damn tasty and enjoyable.

Bottle/22 - Pours a hazy golden yellow in color with a small white head that fades to a thin covering over the beer. Aroma is of wheat malt, lemon, orange, bready yeasts and slight of coriander. Flavor is slightly sweet with plenty of citrus (lemon/orange), some coriander and some clove/banana. Finish is short and dry with a lingering sweetness. I liked this one...

On tap at Colter Bay in Buffalo. Iím a big Long Trail fan, but I gotta say, this is the worst of the Brewmaster series so far, IMO. Perhaps itís just cause Iím not as big a fan of the style as I am of the coffee stouts. It had a nice yellow pour with a decent head. Taste was slightly fruity, but overwhelmingly spicy at the end. Citrus, coriander, pepper. The finish started to get offputting after awhile, and I quit after 2 pints. I might drink it again if itís the best beer available, but Iím not going to rush out and buy a bomber of it.
