look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. The “BEST BY” date printed on the label is “10/31/13.”

Appearance: Poured into a tulip. The color is cloudy, lemonade straw. A finger or so of thickish head left a bubbly skim, ring around the edge, and lacing along the glass.

Smell: Lots of coriander and pepper spice upfront. It has a nice base of bready malts, a little funky yeast that complements the spice, and a spritz of lemon.

Taste: It has a full-bodied mouthfeel and the coriander, pepper spice, and complementing yeast funk dominate. They merge seamlessly so I can barely tell them apart. Bready pale malts and lemonade-like lemon round it out.

Drinkability: A good beer. The flavor and aroma are both strong and enjoyable.

Chainbreaker poured a pale and hazy yellow straw like color with a small lacing head. The aroma was well balanced, with a slightly floral aroma, and lots of citrus. The taste was light with lots of citrus notes, some hop flavors, but rather balanced, some sweet Belgian candies come through too. A bit lighter, but not exactly watery, but still flavorful. Overall a lighter example, but tasty and refreshing.
