On tap. Pours a cloudy gold with a thin, short lived, white head that fully dissipates. Sweet, spicy aroma of coriander, orange peel, lemon and wheat. Sweet, spicy flavour of wheat malt, orange peel, lemon and yeast with spicy coriander in a dry finish. Light body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation.

Appearance: A slightly cloudy & pale yellow body with an extreme effervescence. A thick & billowy white as snow head rests on top and lasts pretty long. Smell: Very nice aroma of citrus & orange. A nice sharp smell of coriander and maybe cloves. Smells quite zesty. Taste: Not as good as the aroma. Very discreet and flees the scene before i can grasp any taste. Slight mix of spices with a touch of lemon and some orange. Finishes with a whisper of rind bitterness. Better as it warms but was expecting more in the flavor dept. Mouthfeel: Quite smooth with a not as active as you would have though carbonation. Nothing exciting but nothing wrong either. A tiny bit soapy in texture.

Pours a hazy blonde, nice head but not much lace. The taste is of banana, citrus, wheat and bready yeast. Yummy.

Not overly attractive murky yellow colour. Hints of spice and orange. Lightly sour finish. Watery.

PanMarek (452) - 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 (6380) - 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.
