Pours a clear golden color with thick rocky offwhite colored head, sheet of thin lace halfway down the glass. Smell: grape, apricot and floral notes, pale malt sweetness and lots of coriander. Taste: sugary malt character, mildly fruity... pear/apple/grape juice blend, again coriander overload, lightly spicy hopping, some peach skin in the finish. Along with spiced sugar cookie this is the lasting impression. Doesn't have the depth of flavor of some others and I could do with a lot less coriander, but this is pretty nice at this abv and price.

New Belgium
Trippel: Ale Brewed with Coriander

A:
Thin head that doesn't dissipate very quickly with a very bright gold color.
Good amount of carbonation. A little cloudy. Looks good.

S:
Smells little sweet and herbal. Maybe a little hint of citrus.

T:
Tastes a lot like it smells. Kind of a sweetness and then a bit of a sour aftertaste.
Doesn't have that bitter part of beer that I don't like. Definitely a more grainy that hoppy taste.

M:
Carbonation is strong. A little on the heavy side but not so heavy I couldn't have another.
Has a thick but not quite chewy feel in the mouth and still goes down smooth.

O:
It fills the mouth but isn't so heavy that it's hard to finish. It takes both my favorite sides I like of a lighter or heavier beer. I also enjoy the sweet herbal/citrus taste. At the end and like the sour aftertaste.
