Clear faded orange glow billowy bright white head that fades quickly. Sweet and exotic spice upfront. Corrinder, Ginger snap on the sides of the tongue. Rich feeling in the mouth but light and fluffy. Sweet pears and apples on the tip of the tongue, tangerines, belgian like spice. Tastes vinous like a chardonnay. Finishes clean with a soft underlying bitterness that mellow the flavors out. Spice and ginger linger. A really unique brew. It really does taste like a belgian blonde was brewed with over the tope spices and lagered. Clean complex fun and delicious. I like it. (it actually smells like a Sauvigion Blanc no lie). Faint peppery finish. Unlike anything i've ever had and super unique.

Bottled, no date I could find which may be an issue. I have had the bottle in cool dark for about two months.

Poured hazy golden color, quite a bit of frothy head that dissipated quickly to next to nothing. Aroma didn't give me anything. No spices, maybe a little beer like smell, but nothing much. Taste was similarly disappointing. Little hints of spice, but muddled and not able to identify. Somewhere mid sip, I get a strange flavor that reminds me of potpourri or almost like a lip gloss. Very odd. Not highly carbonated, slight tingle.

Not quite sure what to make of this. Reminds me of a witte but not getting the coriander and citrusy hops. Middle of the road is best I can do on this bottle, might try again to confirm the findings.

Nice-looking and smooth tasting beer. Not a tremendous amount of depth or complexity. Satisfying but light. Could use some more spiciness for the style. More like a witbier to me. Based on others, this seems to be a pretty decent brewery, albeit not necessarily the absolute elite.

bomber into nonic

A: moderately clear, light amber color with a pile of white foam with moderate lacing

S: coriander, biscuit, maybe a hint of cinnamon

T: anise, coriander, white pepper, very dry. it's a laser of flavor. They are fine but they don't really expand across the palate

M. smooth, not overly carbonated but enough to clean up the tongue, drier than expected.

O: meh, it would be good on a hot day and I like the idea of a spiced lager. still, the flavor profile was so narrow that I cannot get excited about this beer.

Appearance: Flat carbonatin, but a lot of foam and lacing. Golden color.

Smell: Lots of fruit and yeast. Definitely some alcohol.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Same as smell. There's lots of coriander as well. Wine-like in the finish and as it warms. Very nice. Mouthfeel, on the other hand, is very watery and flat. Huge disappointment compared to rest of beer.

Overall Drinkability: Would be a very, very good beer, if not for the mouthfeel. Reminds me of a Belgian ale or a wit with more coriander.
