Haven't had a Coney Island Beer in quite some time every beer that I ever tried has been retired and not brewed anymore! Picked this up at Carnivores in Oakmont.

A - Good start hazy amber brown color with a 1/2 inch of head that pulls back to a nice lace ring.
S - Coriander similar to a Witbier with some citrus bubblegum yeasts. Maybe ginger?
T - Lemon and Coriander similar to a Witbier but the taste kind of falls flat with a yeasty sugary sweetness. It's drinkable though!
M - Light to medium quite easy to drink for the ABV.

Overall its a interesting mix of flavors but both the carbonation and body make it fall flat. Have to agree just a touch more carbonation may bring a bit of "zip" to this beer

A - Golden honey color with a thin and creamy off white head.

S - Licorice, coriander, yeast, and ginger.

T - Coriander, yeast, ginger, a hint of lemon.

M - Medium body, light carbonation.

O - Don't love it, don't hate it. More carbonation to add some pizazz.

A: The beer is hazy orange yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some fine particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving bits of lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of orange peel are present in the nose along with notes of ginger.
T: The taste has flavors of orange peel and ginger with notes of wheat and hints of fennel seed, the latter of which is perceptible in the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This witbeer seems to be a bit heavier on the palate compared to other beers in the style so this property and the use of ginger seem to make it appropriate for a beer for the holidays.

Quality Belgian Ale. Tastes delicious for a nearly 7% ABV beer. I love my Belgian style ales so I may be partial, but this is one of my favorite beers. Seem to keep comin' back for more.
