3.53/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Another initial review harkening back to a previously-tasted brew, this time one that brought some decent joy in the midst of a Lucky Monk burger on the patio. It pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises ripe banana flesh, light clove, light cinnamon, flowers, and some mildly-bready toffee. The taste brings in more of the same, but it's all o'erpowered by a general fruitiness led by oranges and mild lemons. Part of me wishes the flavors echoed the smell, but it still works, so I'm not gonna spend too much time fretting. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish that borders on crispness. Overall, an enjoyable little taste of relatively-low-ABV Belgian-ness. I could easily see drinking a few of these on porches and patios in the coming warm months.

3.48/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a nice golden yellow with a nice white head. Nice carbonation. The head dissipates so fast that there can only be lacing from the initial pour.

Smell: Yeasty, doughy, bready, hint of lemon and citrus, and coriander as well.

Taste: Same as the smell.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation.

This would make a good session beer and it's different and unique, but the taste is not that good . To be fair, I hate coriander.
