Look- solid golden color. I did not get much of a head out of this pour and the lace dissipated pretty quickly until it was gone throughout the rest of the drink.
Smell- fruity, bannana, pear, and alcohol.
Taste- phenolic, alcohol, fruity and spicy.
Feel- dry finish.

A: cloudy; dull gold in color; 2 finger white head that receded to a thin film; nice Belgian lacing;

S: an initial burst of citrus, then coriander mixes in; a little peppery spice;

T: lemon up front; strong coriander by mid-palate - overwhelms everything else; a bit of banana at the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate to high carbonation; dry finish; alcohol is slightly warming;

O: much more coriander that I expected or wanted;

A classic finally reviewed. Here goes:

A: Only mediocre thing about the beer. Pours a small head but with adequate lacing. Also very cloudy and yellow but with good carbonation.

S: Very good. Bready Belgian yeast, candied sugar, coriander, clove, orange peel and lighter spices. Very complex, even if not quite as good as beers from other Belgian beer brewers.

T: Excellent. Bready Belgian yeast, coriander, clove, etc. Follows the nose really well.

F: Thick and bready. Good.

O: Good beer.
