Sampled on tap at Father's Office in Santa Monica. Lighting wasn't great, but this looked to be a faded orange with a long lasting bubbly white head that laced gently down the tulip glass. First and foremost in the aroma is coriander...lots of coriander. Swirling it around a little & trying to get past the coriander (which I like) allowed me to pick up some some additional scents of sweet orange liquor and rock candy. In the mouth, this ale really burst with flavor. More coriander across the top of the flavor profile, but not as dominant as in the nose & complimented gorgeously by more subtle spices, candied sweetness, & deep ripe fruit (banana, lemon, & orange). Some mild earthy hops are present in the background & contribute to this brew's complexity. Subtle, but warming alcohol evident throughout. Medium bodied with a very dry finish. Delicious.
Serving type: on-tap

Rich deep golden color with fantastic clarity. A quarter inch thick white head rests on top with a bit of Brussels lacing. Fantastic aroma of coriander, pears, pale malt, and Belgian Strong Ale yeast greets my nose. The mouth is moderately carbonated and fairly dry. I get pale malt and Belgian Strong Ale yeast on the front of the palate and then an appropriate burst of coriander in the follow through. It's so easy to do overkill on the aroma and flavor of coriander, but they nailed it on this one.
