4.05/5  rDev +15.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A: About a finger of white bubbly head dissipates rapidly into a body that is swampy and murky. It's a very pale orangish-yellow that to me is not that appealing, though it may be appropriate for the style.

S: I really enjoy the aroma of this beer a lot. It reminds me of a grassy or piney Tripel, though the smell is perhaps, unfortunately simple. Strong but light hops blend well with earthy tones along with some citrus (mostly orange). The coriander is overwhelming, but it is pleasing in a very unsubtle way.

T: The taste pretty much follows the nose. The orange peel comes through a little more, but the coriander is still very strong. Still, this doesn't make the beer taste poorly. It doesn't quite have the charm of simplicity, it's just unsubtle.

M: Appropriately thin and bubbly. It leaves the mouth feeling a little dry when you're done.

D: This isn't a great beer by any means, it's a little too unrefined and too heavy on the coriander. However, the beer tastes good, and is very easy and a great pleasure to drink. Despite its shortcomings, this seasonal will probably become an annual purchase for me.
