Another solid effort but not quite there yet - it’s a good alternative but still just a reminder beer.
On tap at the pub. Murky golden color with a very foamy off white head that left rings of lacing on the glass. Light orange peel and spice nose. Flavors of the bitter orange peel, corriander, yeast, and noticable alcohol. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Lots of sweet darkish fruits, hints of citrus and yeast. This is ok, I wish it was a bit more complex. NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Hazy yellow/orange with lots of head. Nice lacing. Malty sweet with notes of sugar, orange, and coriander with a bit of cllovey yeast. Candy sweet with bready malt flavors hit you initially. Then the hops kick in along with a touch of alcohol for a dry, herbal, slightly warming finish. Nice, but would have probably been better had it seen a few more weeks in the tank. kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - DEC 25, 2004
On tap and out of a growler: Hazy deep golden w/ a lasting white head. First whiff is of an orange creamsicle. Lots of orange peel and corianer in the nose. Some herbal hop make it in as it warms with grainy, bready, malt. Very subdued peppery/clove yeast aroma. Well balanced thoughout. Bready malt, plum fruitiness in the flavor, some hop bitterness comes into the finish; coriander is very light, as is the citrusy orange peel. Aftertaste lasting and is lightly herbal hop flavored. Higher carbonation, lighter medium body, warming alcohol, and lightly dry m/f. This beer to me seems like a really big Belgian Wit, with a little added plum in the flavor.
