3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Hazy yellow pour, thick white head. Aroma of citrus coriander, and loads of lemon. Flavor was quite sharp, the citrus bites! the coriander lingers in the finish, but the end makes the lemon taste artificial. Good wit though. Very refreshing.

Sampled at the brewpub. Cloudy bright yellow, pillowy white head. Aroma is wheaty and a little spicy. Nice fresh flavours of wheat, citrus, and coriander spice. Not overly sweet, which is a plus. A great summertime brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Niagara’s Best. Pours a clear apricot hued golden yellow with a thin white head. Little bit of lemon, citrus with a touch of hops. Medium bodied, nice wheat and a touch of malt. Finishes dry and crisp with a little grain carryover.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tapped a pale gold milky ale with a 2 finger frothy cap that stacked out of the glass. Moderate carbonation for the style.
Aroma had coriander overload ( and I suspect some fennel seed) which totally dominated the aroma.... Unfortunately the result of over use of these two spices combines with some sulphurous yeast phenols to creates a vegetal tone like "celery". No this is NOT DMS but it is an unexpected aromatic that results from overloading coriander seed.
Flavor was dominated by the spice, there were moments where the dry buiscuit wheat malt broke through but the spice power dominates the drink along with the hops...no hint of orange peel.
No off tastes, but needs work.

[2445-20090814] Tap. Some vegetation like raspberry leaves in the aroma. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Fruity hops flavour has a nice sweet finish and a mildly bitter yeast aftertaste. Medium body. Little bitter, better as it warms.
Overheard: "I can picture the beach!" -- while drinking this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009-08-14. Lightly hazy pastel yellow, small white head. Aroma of sweet lemony citrus, mild yeast. (6+) Flavour is lightly bitter, with a touch of spice? Mild yeast character, lingering bitterness in the finish. Average palate. Overall it is a bit mild. According to the brewer it is much hazier when first kegged, and I suspect that that would lend itself to a slightly more assertive flavour. As it was, much of the yeast had dropped out of suspension leaving a relatively clear body. Pleasant but mild. On tap at the brewpub

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at brewpub: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with almost no head. Aroma of coriander and orange peel is stronger then anticipated with some light wheat malt also coming through. Taste is overly spice with too much coriander coming through and limited wheat being perceptible. Body is full with limited filtration but carbonation is too low for style. Maybe a tad too much spice for the style and definitely lacking some carbonation – I will have to re-rate because there is element of an interesting beer in here.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had at the new brewpub in Niagara Falls. 19 IBU. Cascada is falls in Italian, not the hop used. Cloudy white with Caesar head, and leaving some lace representing the freshness of it. A bit woody aroma, surprisingly. Watery mouthfeel, overcarbonated, a bit of orange and wheat flavour. Not a good wit.
