Hazed golden/touch of orange on the pour into a pint glass from standard pry off bottle. Half an inch of white foam settles out to a thin film and drops light lace.
Aroma is rather subtle on this one, with a bit of citru and coriander spice. No real yeast presence though perhaps a bit of sour wheat twange at times. More spice with warming.
Flavor is sweet up front with a smack of citrus followed by a lengthy orange and coriander finish. Bit sweet and one sided at first but does garner a bit more depth with some warming, expressing more spice as it does so.
Feel is a bit rich for the style and excarbated by the under represented carbonation level in the pour. Easy drinking nonetheless in a sense as the light carbonation and lack of stops on the bus route of flavor allow for a quick trip to your destination, that being the bottom of the glass.
