Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a deep caramel color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of fruits, yeast, spice. Taste is bursting with flavor. Lots of spice, some fruits, yeast, very flavorful. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a top notch beer worth seeking out.

Bottle from O'Reilly's. Orange tinged body with a token head, and a few drops only of lace are later left. Yeast with some fruit and spice aroma. Above average mouthfeel but also aggressively carbonated. Good drinkability, corriander and pepper, and secondary fruit and tanginess. Decent take on the style.

A - Pours clear orange/brown with almost three fingers of off-white head. Head has excellent retention and leaves some nice lacing.

S - Coriander initially dominates the aroma. Once my nose adjusts to all the coriander, some belgian yeast and citrus come through. Nice, but a little heavy on the coriander.

T - The taste is similarly dominated by coriander, at the expense of the other flavors. Eventually some Beligian yeast, banana and juicy citrus come through, with some pepper as well. Finish has a spicy dryness. Again, pretty good, but too much coriander.

M - Medium mouthfeel that finishes quite dry.

O - An interesting Belgian pale ale with heavy witbier spicing. Cutting back on the spicing would help this one out, but it is still pretty enjoyable.

A-Pours a cloudy light amber color with a good amount of white head. The head fades away quickly leaving a slight ring of foam and slight lacing.
S-Aromas of citrus and a hint of pine. I also detect a faint aroma of banana and cloves.
T-I get a distinct citrus flavor, some cloves and alcohol. Just a hint of sweetness in the form of slight banana flavor and the slightest hint of cloves, a fairly complex flavor along the lines of a strong saison.
M-Fairly dry with minimal carbonation. Good body.
Overall, this tastes to me like a strong saison. I know the whole point of this beer is that it really fits no specific category but thats the flavor profile I'd compare this beer to. The spice flavor is dominant, a result of the belgian yeast and extra hops. Not at all a bitter beer though. Lots of different flavors blend together in this beer.

This ale pours fairly clear deep golden color with a sticky white head. The aroma is a burst of fruity esters, a lot of banana, as well as some citrus and hints of clove, inviting. The flavor is dominated by fruity esters, a lot like banana bread, with some cloves, and tropical fruits. These flavors are balanced out by some spicy hop flavor and moderate-low hop bitterness. The beer finishes slightly dry with just a bit of lingering yeast character. The body is medium and carbonation medium-full. Overall a nicely made beer, refreshing, yet still interesting, worth a try.

Is there such a thing as amber licorice?

Lovely hazy amber in the glass. A good head on top and lots of swirling lacing. Excellent mouth feel with rich flavors, creamy carbonation. Totally weird, yet eager to please. Rather bitter long aftertaste with the licorice that just won't quit. Fruitcake in a glass. Yet it tastes of celery with a touch of Kandy Korn.

Totally unique flavor. I don't know if this would get tiresome, but it's a cute new playmate.

The Furthermore website says that they were going for a big Belgian Wit beer. I tried brewing a similar beer recently and feel that it this beer doesn't quite make it just like mine didn't. The big coriander flavor and aroma really doesn't seem to work.

Appearance is cloudy orange.

The smell is very strongly perfume. It reminded me of the strong odor of a detergent. Luckily it faded away with the head.

The taste is okay. For me the coriander is overwhelming. It makes it taste grassy and dull at the same time. I can't really explain it; it's like the wheat and coriander combine in a way that just isn't pleasant to me.

They brew I made needed less coriander, less wheat and more citrus. When I add a squeeze of lemon, it is better. This beer has the detergent like perfume odor and taste too. Just not for me I guess.

This is an American Belgian beer. Pours with average body, clouded appearance related to yeast. Served around 40F so there was a low, rocky white head that fell at an expected rate.

Lots of Belgian aroma. Not as clean as a Belgian but good phenol character.

Sturdy Belgian taste with some yeasty character. Cara taste is abundant with malt notes subdued.

Not great but worthy of a try. Possibly needs to be cold cellared to improve it a bit. It is tough to compare American Belgians against the likes of Westmalle and Chimay.

This beer has a pretty cool name, makes me think of the one line from the Bloodhound Gang song You're Pretty When I'm Drunk but anyway, this beer pours out as a golden yellow color with a fluffy white head. The smell has an average Belgian aroma to it. The taste has a decent bitterness to it. The mouthfeel is a little on the lighter side. The overall on this beer is that it's an average beer but not something I'd rave about.
