this one surprised me. when i read spring fever i think of a real light summer easy to drink beer. this one had a bit more depth then expected. yo, to you boneheads, thats a good thing. nice nose of light fruits apples and bananas. reminded me of hefe weizen with a more spice and yeasty belgian stink foot thing going on. push the dust under the carpet and keep drinkin, slightly warm alcohol as the beer warms in the glass and the room, good and interesting. lets try that again.

On tap. O beautiful orange colored pour. Smells of yeast, spices and fruits. A very floral mouth feel flavor. Rather yeasty in a hefeweizen sort of way but with a belgian yeast flavor. Really heavy mouthfeel and rather warming from the alcohol, but a rather enjoyable beer for desert.

MrDick (347) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 1, 2005
When I first poured this into the glass and took a lungful of aroma, I didnít think that this beer would taste very good. Mild citrus and floral aroma was present, but it was hardly apparent. The first couple of sips werenít overwhelming little floral and citrus with the necessary spices. But as the beer warmed, the flavors became more complex and pleasant. The coriander is definitely present as is lemon and orange. Quite a nice beer just give it some time.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2005
22 oz bottle. Light copper color with a thick, small head. Aroma of mostly candi sugar and sweet malts dominate the nose. Taste is mostly coriander and black pepper. Sticky sweet and malty with a sweet hop bitterness, yeast and anise. This could be very good in time.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2005
22oz bottle. Copper and orange hue with a small to medium sized white head. Big syrupy sweet nose of ginger, coriander, soap, chlorine and sweet jolly rancher candies. Buggle gum malt flavor, with some spicy bread and tea flavors. That strong coriander and ginger soap flavor is overwhelming at times. Has a little toasted or burnt orange peel flavor as well. Like drinking potpourri.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - APR 12, 2005
A fine example of this style. Pours a solid amber color with a nice head that left a bit of lacing down the glass. Aroma is nice coriander and a bit of butterscotch, and strong enough to cut through the reminant of a cold Iím fighting. Flavor is very nice. Definate coriander and some other spices that I canít disect right now but itís very complex. Palate is crisp and well carbonated. Overall this is a great example of the style and worth seeking out.

earendil (3) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2005 does not count
beautiful dark-golden color, fruity boquet spiked with coriander, and a great subtle malt flavour rounded out with coriander and the yeast esters.

TChrome (1425) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Beer pours very dark golden with a diminishing off white head. The aroma is belgian ale consistent with esters, yeast, and lots of coriander. Flavor is very spicy, lots of coriander, some yeastiness, and orange. Finish is dry and spicy consistent for the style. This is good but maybe too heavy on the coriander.
