Pours a hazy golden color with a tight, white head that leaves a nice layer of lacing.
Smells of bright citrus notes.
Tastes of mild orange notes and some underlying sweetness. Orange is more subdued than I expected, but what is there is nice. Some of the honey sweetness comes through to complement the orange along with some floral notes. There is some coriander, but it is very subtle.
Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a light, fruity beer that while I find nothing offensive about it, it just doesn't strike my fancy.

This beer was poured into a standard pint glass from a 22 recently purchased from Alpine. I am confident this brew is fairly fresh.
A - The head appears standard white, with medium bubble density and thickness. The body is clear and golden in color. The appearance is nice and clean.
S - The smell is light, citrusy, and sweet.
T - The taste is also light, citrusy, and bright. There is sweetness throughout and tanginess at the backend.
M - The mouthfeel is easy, airy, and clean.
O - This is a nice summer beer for those hot, sunny days, when you need something that will not hold you down. This beer is nicely spiced and easy to drink. My wife and her girlfriend really enjoyed this brew during the afternoon. Simple drinking here...
