AP: very pale straw color. Almost looks like lemon juice in a glass with barely any head.

SM: strong hints of its Belgian birth place. Some spicy notes.

M: very light but flavorful.

TA: The coriander & orange peel produce an almost clove-like spicy/bitterness. In my tasting notes I contrasted the bitterness that stays behind with the orange peel produced bitterness against a hop-produced bitterness. Orange peel bitterness is a great pairing with the coriander spiciness and it doesn't stick to your tongue like a hop bitterness does.

I must say I am a tried and true hop-head loving hop-noxious bitterness. I've even stated that I don't like wheat beers. Still-this is good stuff and I recommend it for sure.
