From 750 mL bottle to Lost Abbey tulip glass

Amber in color, super-frothy head. The nose is sweet, toffee-malts, oak, fresh garden herbs, citrus zest. The added cilantro comes out on the palate, adding zest and harmonizing with the brew's funky undertones. Flavors are nicely reigned-in given the added spices, with malty sweetness at the front of the palate. The finish is relatively short, with lively phenols lingering.

This was a lot better than expected, given the reviews. We've been sitting on this bottle for six months or so, I wonder if it just needs some time.

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of coriander, orange peel and paradise grain is quite sublime with light caramel malt notes and some residual sugars. Taste is also dominated by grain of paradise with some orange peel and some light coriander with light caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer and probably the best I tried from this brewery with great balance between all ingredients.
