I'm not much on coriander so it will reflect on this review. Cloudy cream head pour. Citrus and coriander. N oddly bitter saison buying liked the originality. Didn't taste any fruit more floral outlay. Not bad but not that great either. Will recommend to my coriander buds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice cloudy golden hue. Yeasty smell, not so strong. Nice flavor, Deven in North, not strong. A little wreak, but good for style and a hot day. Lovely.

Skinnyviking (9243) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2015
66 cl. bottle at home. High and long lasting fluffy chalk white lovely head. Cloudy thin looking light yellow body. Dusty straw dominated aroma with fruity notes in the background. Dry an pretty acidic flavor of lemon, grapefruit with dry notes of pine. High carbonation. Long acidic bitter finish. Quite different from my expectations and, therefore, a nice surprise. Alcohol level seems just right.

Very pleasant, drinkable, goes down easy. Maybe that's just because of my state of mind at the moment...

Leighton (20131) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Cask at the Liberty Bounds, JDW - London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a creamy head. The aroma holds doughy white bread, light yeast and hints of lemon peel. Light to medium sweet flavor with Belgian yeast, doughy white bread, faint spices, citrus rind bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more doughy malts and moderate bitter citrus rind. Good effort all around.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 26 November 2013. Poured a light amber colour with a light haze and a tight, white head. Aroma of soft fruit, Belgian yeast, cereal and banana essence. Citrus hop on the initial flavour with notes of candy sugar and cereals. Finish was a bitter hop bite, balanced with brown sugar, orange peal and passion fruit. Unusually tasty beer to find in JDW.

BeerViking (4515) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Cask at the Michael Balcon JDW, golden and very lively, with a big tight white head. Aromas of lemon, banana, freshly turned earth and a little spice. Full bodied for a golden ale, with warming alcohol over a spicy, and juicy-dry fruity body. Delicious, and a definite credit to Adnams.
