Pours out cloudy pale straw and sits cloudy gold in the glass with a good sized soapy white head, fading to a good skim on the surface with some minor lacings around the glass.
Astringently overpowering aromas of corriander and orange peel, picking up some blueberry-esque notes along the way, most likely a coincidence between the two. This would be like sticking you nose into a bowl of Quaker instant oatmeal, oranges & cream flavored, if such a flavor existed.
Tastes soft and wheaty up front with immediate pilings of orange peel and corriander on the tongue, the rest...fades away. Finishes with mild bitterness and a smooth yeasty pallatte.
Very soft in the mouth, big loose carbonation, mild to moderate, and a light-medium body.
This is not half bad, in fact it's not bad at all. I can't help but note that the orange and corriander portions are rediculous and cloud over almost everything else in the beer. This will go over well.
