look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a yellowish orange color with short 1/2" head.

Smell: coriander, yeast, and some soft citrus are detectable.

Taste: caramel, Belgian yeast, coriander, lemon zest, mild alcohol tones, and a moderate bitterness makes up a decent Belgian styled ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, a bit less crisp and a touch dry at the finish.

Overall: easy to quaff this beer. Flavors are nice but not overwhelming. Worthy of a try.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz.

Pours a light, slightly hazy lemon gold. Thin white film for a head.

Smells of coriander, lemon zest, grassy malts, and semi-sweet citrus.

Flavor is of light grassy malts, hints of wheat, and tart and sweet citrus fruitiness. A very mild hop bite comes through in the aftertaste.

Body is on the full side with light fizzy carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Pretty decent Belgian-inspired ale, not quite in tune with the style to me, but that aside very enjoyable and refreshing. Has some saison-like elements. Definitely worth a try.
