05/14/14 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Loads of orange and coriander up front, with a nice crisp citrusy - lemony finish. Here is a good example of an front to back differentiation of tastes. This could be a good long session beer if that's what you're looking for. Bring on the BBQs.

Clear golden body; lots of visible carbonation.

Feel: very crisp, lively carbonation. Medium body is surprisingly ful for style.

Spicy aroma.

Flavorful with a bit too much coriander; Some lime peel flavor; spicy; mildly bitter; fanitly tart.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Cloudy, chill-hazed gold in color, with a bright white head of foam.
Aroma-Faint lime note, spices
Taste-Faint coriander,wheat, spices. Lime peel in the finish provides a nice little bite. Pleasant and refreshing on a warm afternoon.
