PanMarek (301) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Cloudy, lemony gold pour with thin foam. Mild spicy nose. Taste was lemony and thin. A touch of coriander and pepper at the finish, but overall a mild and disappointing experience. On tap at the Irish Times pub in Victoria, BC.

Boutip (6026) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of coriander and wheat malt are pretty dominant. Taste is also heavy on the coriander notes with some great wheat malt notes and light residual sugar notes. Body is pretty full with good carbonation. Pretty enjoyable with nice dose of coriander but carbonation could be slightly more pronounced.
