Poured into a Stone flute. Big pop when pulling the cork, but no gushing. Pours a light straw amber with golden notes and a three finger, large bubble head that still had good retention and thick lacing. Aroma of coriander, mild caramel malt, apple juice, saison style yeast. Flavor is coriander, bready malt with a hint of caramel, saison yeast, mild wheat, light orange and lemon citrus; finishes semi-dry with citrus peel, clove and coriander bitterness. Light bodied with peppery, active carbonation, nice mouth feel. A spicy wit that has characteristics of a wit, tripel and saison; wit malt and wheat, tripel intensity of spicing and a dry, saison yeast flavor. I thought it worked quite well; more intense than a typical wit, but with interesting yeast and spicing. Perhaps a bit overspiced for the ABV (a tripel would have had more intensity of other flavors to counter the spicing), but overall reasonably balanced and flavorful. I stumbled on this year old bottle on a trip and don't expect to see it again, but I'd like to try other ales from this brewery. I wouldn't be surprised if I scored a fresh bottle more highly, but even so, this has held up well with no visible age flaws.

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, but consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Moderate aromas of coriander and orange peel are present in the nose.
T: Very much like the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of orange peel and coriander, the latter of which stand out in the finish.
M: It feels just about shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a nice amount of orange peel and coriander. It feels a little too spicy and heavy on the palate to be thirst-quenching.

Note: Batch No. 11, Bottled on 6/5/2013
