She pours a hazy yellow/orange color and leaves the same colored body. She has a white film of a head that quickly dies within several seconds and has no lacing whatsoever. The smell has a very strong orange and citrus up front, lemon zest, coriander. The taste is slightly spicy, slightly sweet through light refreshing sort of taste. It has a sticky sweet aftertaste with a dry finish. The palate is light, sessionable, and has a sharp carbonation but adequate for the style. Overall, well, its good for me - no Belgian yeast, but true Belgian fans might not like this one too much. Still I say its a good one for the good ol back of the porch for summer days.

L: golden/white/lemon color
A: citrus, yeast, spices
T: mildly hoppy, wheat and citrus
F: smooth, almost a light IPA
O: good but I would have preferred more hops, it's a stretch to call it an IPA instead of a regular ale. Goes down very easy, just not as flavorful as I'd hoped.

Poured into tulip from bottle, nice 2 finger white soapy head, nice retention and nice lacing. Pale golden hazy in the glass. Smells of Belgian yeast, coriander & citrus. Taste initially of coriander, clove, slight juicy fruit and finishes up with a touch of citrus and has a somewhat spicy finish. Has a somewhat lingering after taste of herbs. Nice mouth-feel and body. Grabbed this as part of a pick six, but going to put this on my buy list next time the mood hits.
