BBD 8/18/14. Clear amber pour with a nice dark ruby hue. Strong head with very good lacing and retention. The nose has soft orange/lemon notes over a tart pepper-like background. Light medium bodied with a nice smooth texture. Above average carbonation that effervesces quite well on the finish. The flavor profile is laid back, but has a well balanced complexity. It begins with a citrus tartness which progresses to a light caramel sweetness. On the crisp finish, the coriander and pepper are noted along with a touch of spicy hop flavor as it effervesces. A good solid ale that leaves you with a touch of spicy heat at the back of the throat..

I tried the Expressionist Collection: Farmhouse Red. It has hints of Coriander, Hibiscus and White Pepper. When you smell this beer it smells a little like cilantro (coriander), which is why it has that orange/citrusy smell. I loved this beer; the flavors were delicious and it was just an easy beer to drink. It was light and not bitter like an IPA.

I tried but no thanks. I went to my local liquor store and my buddy who owns it offered me a 12pk for $7.99. Just on the price alone I was suspicious but having drinks earlier in the day I figured wat the hell, plus ill save some $. Well that was 3weeks ago and im just on my 4th beer. Cant drink it unless im buzzed because my gag reflex aren't as sensitive.
