COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pilsner and wheat malt provide the backbone of this deceptively light ale spiced with fresh orange peel and coriander seeds to produce a rich, clean flavour. Belgian yeast creates its hazy white appearance with a crafted sweet citrus aroma and reserved hop freshness.

Honestly I was hoping for a little more flavour and complexity to this beer, however the pilsner malts don’t contribute strongly to overall flavours. There is some sweetness in the palate of this beer, mostly expressing orange aromas. Some spice present. Not my favourite but it shows some promise for this brewery.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a brief white head. Grainy aroma with wheat and oranges. Watery. Thin and grainy with orange and coriander.

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 30, 2013
330ml stubbie. BB 13/12/13. Poured a translucent/hazy straw/pale lemon colour with a few white bubbles for a head. No lacing. Low carbonation as seen by small and medium sized bubbles forming a few trails. Aroma of yeast plus subtle spice/coriander, all with an underlying sourness. Taste of light spice/coriander with a bit of acidity on the back palate plus a sour after-taste. Light body, bordering on watery. A short light sour finish.

A bit simple and low-brow but works well enough as a straightforward crowd pleaser. Concentrated orange lends some sweetness to the palate but otherwise there’s not a heap happening. Some buzzy fruit tingle flavour as well but this doesn’t prevent some cloying on the finish.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours hazy straw with a small, rapidly dissipating head. Nose shows cidery notes, citrus peel, cinnamon, banana, cloves. Not sure what this is aiming for, hefe or wit. Reminiscent of T58 yeast. Big doughy yeasty notes. Flavours include more cinnamon, wheat, cidery notes and little else. Could use more carbonation. To make things worse, the last two slabs we got of this were infected.... Not a good track record.

Maris (914) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2011
From a 330ml bottle on 14/12/2011. Pours a pale cloudy yellow with a big head. Has an aroma of banana and spices. The flavour is curious. There’s quite a bit sharp spiciness against a lemony, orange peel background, but not much else. Has a short, abrupt finish.Not a good example of the style.

mkel07 (2520) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2011
330ml bottle. Light amber in colour with some haze and a big rocky white head as expected. Well carbonated with orange and coriander in the nose. Clean crisp mouthfeel and cleanses the palate well. Light in the mouth with a citrus backdrop.

Bottle - Cloudy pale orange brown. Pure white head. Medium carbonation. Sweet and earthy. The orange peel and coriander is evident. Moderate bitterness.
