Chill hazed yellow colored beer with a tall snow white colored head.

Smells of honey and apples with just a touch of coriander. Faint cinnamon scent.

Starts out mildly sweet with a honey flavor with banana and apple. Mild coriander but this is no revved up Belgian IPA. Mild bitterness. Faint cork taste.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a very tasty beer. Highly recommended.

Hazy golden colour, big head that sticks to glass, always a ring on the surface. Smell of ripe fruits, spices, bnanas, maybe coriander. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of fruits, bananas, apples, peaches, some spices, maybe coriander. Palate is more on the sweet side, though ther'e some astringency. Really good.

Nice fluffy head, great grasslike smell with some sweet fruits, taste is very nice with slight citrus and pepper notes.

I am drinking a canned version and upon popping the tab, faint bitter hops support large pitted fruit on the nose. It pours hazy gold under a very pillowy head that persists and leaves thick lace all the way down. The palate starts with fruit balancing a line between peach and apricot with citrus, very faint grapefruit, orange, bread and light grains in the background and traces of caramel. The bitter on the finish suggests earthy grapefruit rind. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium high. While the beer is very creamy, the canned version tastes artificially carbonated opposed the the natural carbonation in the bomber bottles and the dcanned versions carbonation feels a little harsher – not as smooth as the bottle conditioned variety.
