Just dropping in to give thanks to blacklab for this recipe. I bottled on 1-4-13 and am enjoying my first pint as we speak. (sneak preview) I'm not one for fruit beer, actually made it for swmbo...but I'm going to be all over this one. I stayed very true to the recipe, used 1 oz sweet + 1 oz bitter dry orange peel, only 1 pack so4, and used a touch more vienna. Hit 6.2%abv. My take on the beer so far...
The soft nose is all cascade with coriander, the initial taste is clean with the orange and cascades blending perfect. First sip I thought the orange peel was a touch overbearing, but it's growing on me. It's not too sweet, I don't like sweet. Hops are dominating, coriander is letting itself be known in the aftertaste, which is nice and bitter, begging for another sip. This beer rocks! Thank you.
