4.1/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Subtle, fresh lemon aroma with a hint of spice.

Well formed, bright white two-finger head when poured according to bottle instructions (pour 2/3, swirl bottle, pour rest to form head). A light straw-colored brew emerges, enveloped in a whitish cloud, with good head retention but little lacing.

Smooth, orange-lemon citrus tea flavor with yeasty, French bread overtones and piquant spice in the back of the palate after the fizzy carbonation subsides. Solid wheat presence.

Not too intense at all considering the coriander and orange peel, but refreshing and tasty -- a perennial summer favorite with BBQ chicken and melons.
