adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburís Fort Collins. Cloudy yellow orange appearance with a spidery, off white head. Aroma smells a lot like candy necklaces / bubblegum / smartees. Creamy mouth feel. Some bitterness but not bad. Flavor is sweet and candy like. A lot of pineapple and passion fruit. Strange cookie but not unenjoyable.

Drake (8980) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a very hazy orange color with a thin frothy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of heavy spices, citrus and floral hops, pine, as in almost spruce tips, pale wheat. The taste is wheat, spice, citrus hops, candied fruits, mild stone fruits. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, decent balance. Iím sure Iím going to rate this way above the average, but this is hitting the spot for me.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a great, bright, turbid golden canary color with a frothy finger of off-white head that laces copiously all over your motherís face. Nose is limey citrus, white peppery and coriandery spice, honeydew, malt. The smell is great. Tastes fruity, with orange marmalade, honeydew, mild spice, and a dense and complex finish. This is indubitably one of the best beers Matt has ever brewed, and I would drink this with a fox, I would drink it in a box, I would drink it on a hill, I would drink it while banging a woman who is on the pill. I would, I would Sam I am!

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - Abercorn St - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy medium golden, little to no head. Aroma has some coriander accents, a touch of yeast. Flavor has some nice lemony accents, a touch of coriander, some light bubble gum. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Dependable, as most Saranacs are.

Is there peaches in this beer? Because it sure seems like there is peaches in this beer. In fact, Iím gonna go ahead and call this a peach beer.

kramer (5089) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy and cloudy yellow body with a small frothy white head. The nose is an all out assault of coriander with a little orange peel and yeastiness. The flavor is much the same, loads of soapy tasting coriander and not a whole lot else. Light bodied and soft with gentle carbonation. Not the best Wit, they overdid it with the coriander.

EithCubes (5086) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Nose of citrus fruit and roses, faint grapes and strong (fake) peach. Yucky pale yellow-golden, just dingy, with a tight rocky beige head. Taste is bone-dry and strongly bitter, touch of perceived sweetness from the strongly artificial peach. Crisp, aggressive full body, no malt development, astringent and rubbery in the sharply bitter finish. Dumper.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5078) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky pale yellow color with a large fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tart and tangy citrus, cactus, pine and a bit of pineapple. The flavor was dry, tart and sour lemon, cactus and an underlying astringency. Long dry, tart and sour lemon finish. Medium body. Decent.

jgb9348 (4842) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Hazy golden coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of coriander seed, curacao, full oranges, lemons and a lot of yeast - strong. Medium-bodied; Very strong coriander seed flavour coupled with a good orange and lemon flavourand some honey sweetness. Aftertaste shows a very pungent yeast kick followed by some subdued sugars and thatís about it - a lot of coriander seed and curacao, but itís minimal at the end. Overall, a decent wit at best, too much coriander seed flavour and a bit too much oranges, both in the form of a full orange and in curacao. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Stop & Shop in New Paltz, New York on 30-August-2014 sampled a bit later in the day here in New Paltzia.

Pours hazy gold into a shaker. White head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Sweet tropical fruit and strawberry aromas. Sweet summer fruit and bitter/sour seeds in the lasting finish.
