beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle. Pours a frothy, hazy straw color. Nice rocky head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of tangerine, coriander, herbal spice, pear and light caramel candiness. The taste is refreshing and complex. Primary flavors are citrus, pepper and mild apple/pear. The finish is balanced with fruitness and some clean bitterness. A nice beer that I’ll have to revisit in the warm weather.
