Bottle picked up locally and enjoyed from a horny devil snifter.

Brew pours a murky orange with a thin bubbly head that bubbles away quick. Nose is fairly fruity with big coriander notes and Belgian candied yeast. Not a classic BSPA, but not a huge departure...just a bit heavy on the sweet for the nose. As for the flavor, the sweetness comes through, but e fruitiness is more present and balances things out...although this definitively falls on the sweeter side of the spectrum for the style. Some bubble gum notes and phenolic booze on the finish. Drinks fairly nice and even without a lot of carbonation. Overall, not bad at all. A bit sweet with heavy handed coriander.
