Poured from the bottle into a frozen tumbler glass.
A - Pours a cloudy tan-yellow, with about two fingers of thick white head. Leaves some attractive clumpy lacing.
S - Boosh. Pretty heavy on the coriander, but it's the flagship ingredient. Some malts and hops, wheat, citrus.
T - Lots of coriander and wheat, not overly heavy on the citrus. A dab of banana and clove, maybe, but maybe I'm just imagining it due to what's typical for this style of beer. Strike the banana.
M - Pretty light, kind of a soapy feeling (but not taste, that would be bad). Bit of an odd aftertaste, but it's coriander-related, whatever it is.
O - This seems like a love-it-or-hate-it. The spicing is probably too bold for those who prefer more subtle flavorings, but those who like things up close and personal would probably love it. I can appreciate both depending on the beer, but I fall into the love it column on this one.
