Poured from a can into a tapered mug, it billowed up quite a bit with plenty of drippy lacing. Hazy orange with the yeast poured in, not opaque though.

Initial aroma of citrusy orange, but it fades to coriander and a faint soapiness after awhile.

Slightly astringent and lightly tart, vaguely wheaty with plenty of coriander. Not much distinctive citrus outside of the tartness. Carbonation is a little high, but it's drinkable. Not sure how old this was, it was on the singles rack and I hadn't seen it before.

reviewed from notes taken on 6/21/12.

poured into pint glass server by bartender.

Appearance: bright and clear yellow bodied beer with a solid finger of white head.

Smell: light wheat and grainy malts. Citrusy and peppery like spice.

Taste: Oranges, lemons, coriander adds a lite spiciness. Malts profile is just a tad over powered by citrus and spice taste of faint wheat and saltine crackers. The beer has decent balance.

Mouthfeel: light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. easy drinking summer beer for a hot day. refreshing pint of beer.

Overall: Solid wit beer. Nothing crazy, but definately better than your average beer in this style.
