Pours a hazy deep straw producing 2 fingers of white, shortlived, mostly tight head that leaves only a few motes of lace. Aroma has a sour & yet creamy sherbet like sweetness, bready wheat, some coriander with hints lemon & orange, faint pepper & a faint note of sulfur in the background. Taste is spicy & faintly sour, white bread & thin peach pie, strong to coriander, some orange & other citrus with much less of the creamy sweetness of the nose, finishing slightly acidic & peppery & remaining so into the aftertaste where I believe I can still pick up a faint hint of sulfur. Mouthfeel is moderate to heavy bodied, creamy but slightly sick on the tongue with a high carbonation level that delivers a very active bite.

Can manufactured 10/27/15, poured into Belgian ale glass

L: Pale amber, a bit cloudy. Pour results in 2 finger head, poor retention, no lacing or ring.

S: A bit of orange and coriander, light malt up front.

T: Orange, lemon, coriander, wheat malt. Honey sweetness on finish, but not too much. Just as it should be.

F: Light bodied, light to medium carbonation, good balance, slightly dry finish.

Nicely done in a style I am growing to like.

Pale and hazy in color. The beer has a nice nose of orange and coriander. A fantastic drink by the pool or outside. Cigar City did fantastic job with this beer.
