3.28/5 rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Hazy golden yellow, with lots of fat, slow rising bubbles and some modest suspended sediment. The head is small, white, and rather dense, and retains well. The lacing is thick and glass-coating.
Aroma: Wheat, citrus, and coriander dominate the aroma, with coriander winning out over the citric notes. There is a mildly sweet character as well.
Taste: Opens with a fairly strong flavor of bread-like wheat malt, and a little earthy bitterness. Citrus rind and coriander soon increase in prominence. A slight clove presence appears as well. Finishes with wheat malt, and a moderate earthy bitterness.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, with just a hint of carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: A very decent example of the style.
Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle
