Bottle from brewery, hazy light amber beer, skiff of white foam. Aroma is banana, coriander, malt. Taste is honey, spice, coriander, and a hint of black pepper, with a little hops bite on he end. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation subdued. This is nice for a Belgian.

KyotoLefty (9716) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 22, 2016
Bomber. Orange-gld, almost clear, with lace. Spicy nose, honey, oranges, nice Belgian yeast. Sweet malty flavor, spicy and peppery. Fully, silky body. Honey comes through. Very interesting spicy, peppery finish that appears to be only from the yeast.

jgb9348 (5989) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Relatively clear orange and light copper coloured body with a faint, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of honey, flowers, yeast, coriander seed and a touch of curacao. Medium-bodied; Slightly malty flavour with some honey, yeast, bread, grain and a bit of a citrus note - not too much going on here, and aside from the sweetness, nothing as for complexity. Aftertaste is sweet - honey and caster sugar with a touch of fruitiness and a light coriander seed freshness. Overall, not too great, but a welcome variance from the IPAs that Ive been having here in Honolulu. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from ABC Stores (Lewers Street between Kahlia and Helumoa (under an underpass) in Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii for US$10,95 on 28-December-2015 sampled a day later in my hotel room here in Waikiki on 29-December-2015.
