Bomber poured a clear orange with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of tropical fruit, coriander, light orange and a hint of toffee. Palate was medium bodied and creamy smooth. Flavors of toffee, light fruittiness and light coriander with a smooth lightly sweet malty finish.

Golden pour with a nice head. The aroma is super fruit and spicy. I got lots of fruit loops, orange, coconut, lemon, grass. Similar notes in the flavor, fruity, spicy, grassy, a good deal of coriander. Sweet, spicy finish with a touch of alcohol warmth.

Sammy (11078) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2008
Hit the spot Grand Cru although one-dimensional corriander, it is drinkable sweet-spicey, with above average carbonation. Still very drinkable supporting yeast,decent looks and yeasty smell. Thanks SuzyGreenberg (Ed Bottomley).

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 (5665) - 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 (4854) - 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 (5543) - 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 (8537) - 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.
