Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2008
On tap at the Green Dragon in Portland, OR--Bright orange-amber body with a creamy whitish head and lots of lace. Full-on floral nose. Soapy sweet, fruity flavor. Yum Yum Yum. Thin smooth, undeveloped finish but very nice.

JK (4441) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2008
From Skyview. Sweet but lots of hops. Coriander and lemon. Medium palate. This is an interesting combination of an ipa-like beer with a sweet Belgian ale. It is unusual and moderately successful. Extra poitns for experimentation.

badgerben (4401) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Courtesy of Skyview. Hazy gold color with no head. Powerful coriander aroma. Holy crap... this thing is so loaded with coriander, I have to strain the seeds out. Working past that, there is a lot of general spiciness, yeast and wheat flavor. Some vegetal bits on the finish. Dry.

Skyview (5209) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Picked up a 22-oz bomber via trade with 5000. Pours a hazy golden orange brew with a nice thick and lumpy off-white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of multi-grain golden malt, coriander, yeast and a touch of lemon zest. Taste is medium to full bodied, with a spicy golden grain malt flavor with coriander, cinnamon, candi sugar and yeast. Finish has a semi-sweet and thick texture aftertaste that lingers after the finish. Quite a coriander bomb that both refreshing and memorable.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2008
[1548-20080725] 1pt6floz bottle. Lemon grass hops and heavy yeast aroma. Hazy, dark orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Full grains and wet woody yeast flavour has a hint of spice. Boozy full body. Interesting but has a weird spice note.

IMtheOptimator (1161) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Poured golden with a frothy off-white head. Aroma has notes of spicy cinnamon, coriander, and some citrus. Flavor follows with sweetness and spiciness, with notes of cinnamon and coriander, and a touch of citrus. A bit of alcohol also arises in the finish. Didn’t blow me away, but was fairly complex and refreshing.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2008
2008-07-25. Caramel golden amber body with a modest beige head. Aroma is a melange of spice over light yeast and alcohol. (7+) Spice is quite assertive in the flavour. Sweet caramel tinged based malts underneath, dry, more spicey highlights. Bit of a bite at times. (7+) Smooth average palate. Very interesting, but I think it would be a bit hard to quaff in larger quantities. Bottle from Mabel’s Seattle Trip

(22oz. bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of cinnamon, coriander, candi sugar, iron, mango, floral, and passion fruit. Flavor of coriander, cinnamon, nutmeg, yeast, honey dew, and some citrus in the finish.

travita (3964) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Orangish amber in color with a light white head. Smell is yeast, candi sugar, spices, and some fruits. Taste is sweet, yeasty, fruits, and spices. Decent clean feel.
