I bought this on sale, but it was still kind of pricey. Good looker, great head. Not a ton of taste. Some citrus comes through, probably more orange peel than coriander. No tartness. They recommend this with risotto or chicken, and it probably will work better with food than alone. It reminds me a little of Estrella Damm Inedit.
Lively (nice streams of tiny bubbles) golden liquid with a taller off-white head. Sweet somewhat stale malt scent, with floral hops, honey, hay and hints of alcohol. Soft, smooth feel. Light sweet malt and grain flavors in the start. A bit of tropical fruit and some floral hops. Really not very complex. Simple mix of a saison/Belgian ale. Looks and feels good, but no personality. 4/13

Poured in a large Bordeaux glass. Light hazy gold in appearance with a fizzy head.
Mild floral of aroma, with slight hints of citrus fruits. Very soapy on the palate, but refreshingly zesty and light on the stomach. MaBeer1972 (2060) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine & More in Milford CT. Poured into a goblet. A hazy straw color with a fizzy off white head. Classic fruity-citrus Belgian yeast flavors with a light honey sweetness. Dry bready finish. Body is on the lighter side making this quite drinkable. sinfull (1655) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Hazy , golden color. Big , white head. Aroma of yeasts, fruits , and malt. Sweet , yeasty taste . Good , although a little bit boring. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a large foamy white head that retained well due to the vigorous carbonation level. The nose is pretty light and delicate, some Belgian yeast derived fruitiness, light coriander, bready maltiness. The flavor is pretty poor though, it’s a bit thin and has a bit of a soggy grain finish. Just a hint of coriander and even less of hops, there just isn’t a whole lot of complexity here. Light bodied and thin with fizzy active carbonation and a bit of a lingering pale malt finish. Not so good, this one. At $4 a 25 oz bottle at the local grocery store, it was worth a chance though.

Lighter bodied belgian ale, flowery, herbal, bordering on saison. Some lemon citrus notes in the taste, some what dry and chalky finish. Voodoo (668) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Pours a very transparent gold with a large head which disappears quickly......aroma of slight earthiness, citrus......taste is lemon citrus, yeast, earthiness, wood notes, nice mouthfeel, just a touch of sour in the end. I’m not a Belgian fan but this is interesting. superspak (5603) - Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass; B335 0245 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep golden color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and hebral/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian pale ale. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering. BrewBoxer (2636) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a tan hazy color with a yeasty lemon taste . Boozy tasting but not afterwards . Easy drink in masked Belgian. Decent
