look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Serving Type - 25.4 oz bottle

Appearance - Light golden tan with a grape juice like green tint. Foamy 1 inch head and tons of lacing.

Smell - Floral, grapes, cherry, candy sugars, light floral hops, almost saision like pepper notes. Some orange and coriander, lemon and a herbal aroma at the finish.

Taste - At first sip, vey floral with loads of yeasty sugars, spices , oranges, lemon peel, and coriander. A hybrid of a wheat ale, a triple and strong ale. Loads of floral/saison notes. Hops are mild , and tropical, not bitter. Some banana mixed in with some malts comes out moreso near the finish. Alcohol is present but not overly present.

Mouthfeel - Sweet yeasts and spices coat the tongue. Palate gets more yeasts, along with some hops, malts and a little booze. The aftertaste is floral/herbal and orange flavored.

Overall - Really nice beer, lots of flavor and really smooth. This bottle might have a little age on it cause the alcohol is really mild and the hops are very light. Has great balance, easy to drink and enjoy.

750 mL pours a mostly clear, light gold color with an ample white head...somewhat fizzy and does not leave much lace.

Nose is tropical alcohol, fruit cocktail syrup and coriander. Interesting...almost a 'grand cru' type of aroma.

Taste is light and fruity, the yeast does some interesting stuff. Thats a good thing with the neutral malt and modest hops.

Coriander is interesting without the usual accompanying orange peel. ABV is pretty evident and the malt is so light. Yeast, fruit and alcohol driven. It is pretty smooth despite all that though and the grassy hops lend a deft touch of bitterness. Pretty good, gets better as it warms. Id drink this again fo sho.

A-a hazy gold with two fingers worth of white fluffy head

S-pale bready malt, citrus, yeasty, with light spices

T-really nice tasting, pale malt, fruit flavors of peaches and pears, bit of spice, and a light bit of hops at the end. Alcohol is very well hidden.

M-medium body, nice spicy carbonation, sweet finish

Overall this is very easy to drink, I can't believe it's 11%! A really great tasting beer.
