12 ounce bottle, best before April 2014. A friend gave me a bottle recently, so I wasn't able to try it when it was fresher. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy gold color with a half inch white head. Heaed retention is decent enough, and there isn't much lacing. The brew smells like orange peel, coriander, wheat/bready malt, and a bit of bubblegum. It tastes like orange peel, wheat/bready malt, coriander, and a sweet spiciness in general. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and has low/moderate carbonation. I think it's an OK brew overall. I wouldn't turn one down, but I wouldn't make a point to seek it out either. With that being said, I would like to try a fresher bottle in the future.
