4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle as a gift brought home from Virginia:
Hazy, light, golden colour with a thin, white head that consists of tonnes of tiny bubbles and stays well for a minute or so.
Spicy notes initially with some yeast and lemon coming through along with it. There is a strong smell of coriander that follows this and some bananas and orange peel.
Strong wheat and yeast flavours with some banana and clove to kick things off with. There is hints of coriander in the taste too along with a bit of citrus lemon and some orange zest.
Light medium with some spice and a citrus tang along with a relatively creamy and smooth taste, coupled with strong carbonation.
Miles better than I was expecting and I knew it was going to be a nice beer before I tried it. All the usual suspects are there for the style but they come together great and the beer is a cracker.

Hazy straw yellow color with a short lived white head. Strong spicy nose with lots of orange peel. Nice light mouth feel. Coriander, bitter orange peel, white bread, lemon zest, and some cracker maltiness. Refreshing and flavorful.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nose with some lemon cleanser and super heavy coriander, pours hazy pale yellow-golden with a soapy bright white head. Light but creamy body, refreshing, and yes, it’s coriander soup. Lemon cleanser, only vaguely scratchy, getting mild but pleasant contributions from the grains of paradise. No bitterness, medium sweetness, actually has sufficiently dense malt for style. For summer beers, it’s definitely got a niche, and there’s some good craftsmanship here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright hazy pale-orange. Nose is a little weak, but the right notes are there - coriander, orange, a little grass. Packs a bright orange-zest punch, quite sweet but not off-putting. Mellow coriander and grass taste as well, Belgian yeast is not on showcase by any means. Medium-bodied, a little too syrupy, carbonation is solid and finish is dry. Its 1,000,000 degrees outside so this beer is definitely killing it in the moment. That said, this beer is all oranges, if you want a little more yeast-funk try again.
