Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #53 (June 2011):

From the crack of the cap is a thick, mildly soapy spiciness, which makes it hard to pick much else out of the aroma other than some vague yeast and grain. Completely clouded over, with a tight white lacing. Thin-ish body and a quick kiss of crispness. Coriander is prevalent, almost dominant, but soon drops down to let some citric peel, yeast and grain through. Hops are there but set way back. At first, there was some worry about the nearly soapy aroma and flavor, but there is some balance here. Lands in the middle of the pack for the style.

Serving type: bottle

12 oz bottle with no freshness date.

A- Cloudy due to the sediment being stirred up and poured into the glass, good pale orangey glow. Thick two fingered head takes forever to dissipate.

S- Sweet coriander with faint spices and orange peel. Clean aroma.

T- Light coarseness from the spices, soft coriander though. Sweet malt blends with the spices well.

M- Ample crispness, light to moderate body.

D- Better than the so called original. Not soapy like many of the rest, very easy to drink.
