Pours a cloudy, dark golden orange color with a one finger white head that immediately settles into a thin ring. Minimal spots of lace left behind.

Spicy aroma with lots of zesty coriander, bready yeast and crisp, light fruit. Slightly earthy with some grass, peppery coriander, candy sugar, apple and pear.

Medium bodied with sharp, tight carbonation and a prominent coriander spiciness that dominates the flavor, lingering over the grassy, yeast and light fruit notes into a slightly dry, boozy finish. The carbonation and strong spice presence makes this beer a bit harsh and difficult to drink. As it warms and the palate adjusts, the grassy hops, bready yeast and fruit notes become more evident. Hints of apple, pear and candy sugar add sweetness but the spice is too strong for my liking. Finishes with a lot of boozy sweetness and warmth in the chest. ABV not very well masked and a bit one dimensional. A rare miss from AleSmith.
