3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best by 15SEP13
Light gold with a solid cap of dense white foam. Smells of coriander, salt, lemon pith, some grain and a little banana and clove. Flavor is nice and floral from the start, some gardenia, sweet honeydew and sweet pear. Some grain and banana. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a wet finish. Nice beer, not quite the gose Iím used to, but nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gold Color, Medium Head, Some Lacing. Did not get any aroma in this one. Taste like sparkling seltzer water. Carbonated and salty. Did not get coriander at all. Some wheat sour on finish. Never had this style before, so not sure what to expect. Definitely different and weird but that is a lure when you try out different beers. Not necessarily very pleasant or enjoyable but drinkable and interesting so I want to try and explore a couple more beers in this style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a KŲlsch glass... this is actually a strikingly beautiful glass of beer, bright golden, perfectly clear with lots of tiny bubbles ascending into a big rocky white head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is mild & sort of clean... there is some doughiness to it, some lemon rind, and a good bit of coriander.
The flavor is crisp and very forward with coriander, perhaps a little too forward... but itís not an unpleasant flavor, and not one that eclipses the other flavors of the beer too awful much. The beer displays a nice level of soft bitterness throughout. The saltiness is really very low, as is the tartness... but both are detectable. Itís got a good light breadiness without being overwhelmingly yeasty. There is nothing especially exciting happening here, unless youíre a fiend for coriander... but itís all really well balanced and nicely put together... easy drinking but with enough flavor and subtlety to keep you thinking.
So what are people hating so much about this one? I canít find much offensive about it unless youíve got an aversion to coriander... which Iím sure lotís of folks have. But itís crisp and refreshing, itís easy to drink without any real flaws. Pretty enjoyable beer all together.

Described by Four Firkins as "Medieval Gatorade," so of course had to try a bottle of it. Clear golden pour with nice amount thicker white head. Taste was coriander and a bit floral. Finish was mildly spicy and salty. Consistent palate.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at New Bohemia served in a pint glass. Ordered only because it was the only decent happy hour option. Little to no aroma and, shockingly, little to no taste. Grainy taste not very memorable. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-amber color with a large fluffy-foamy orange-white head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was a bit tart, salty and bready. The flavor was tart citrus, coriander and salt - nicely mixed and with a pleasant subtlety - with an undertone of bread and Sprite soda. Medium finish of Sprite, salt and bread. Medium body. Pleasant.

Bottle. Pours a pale, copper orange body with a thin, white head. Aroma of corn and malts with a hint of citrus and coriander. Taste is similar with a bit stronger citrus flavor.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of slight grain, cracker, biscuit, hints of earth, slight salt but pretty little. †Taste is a mix of slight cracker, biscuit, spice notes, hints of grass, no salt or tart notes in there at all, finishing slightly bitter, dry. †Too bad.
