Pours a hazy pale straw color with a huge two-finger-plus head and plenty of effervescence. The head dissipates pretty quickly yet some amount retains for a good long time simply because there is so much of it. The nose is soapy. The flavor profile includes wheat upfront and something funny that is hard to place and not terribly pleasant. The finish is dry.

Unimpressive, to say the least.

a bit baseline for cigar city, who obviously makes some of the most outlandish and delicious ales on the market. this is a coriander heavy white ale, loosely belgian, and not as good as i expected it to be, although still quite tasty and certainly refreshing. the nose on it is rather floral from the yeast and the hops, cool complexion. the taste is just dumbed down a bit to me though, lacking the dramatic engagement i usually get from cigar city beers. that said, it is a clean finishing well carbonated very summery white ale, and in hot muggy florida weather, i see it as an excellent choice for refreshment. lost in a crowd of awesome craft beers i think, but a decent example of the style. wishing for more of a belgian yeast profile in the taste, and maybe a little more dryness in the feel, but overall a solid brew.
