Initially this beer was almost undrinkable (too much bitter coriander), but now after 8 weeks of aging its one of the best batches I've made (coriander has mellowed significantly), and it continues to get better. Coriander initially overpowered everything, but now it has mellowed significantly and tastes wonderful. Beautiful golden color, medium head retention, coriander/citrus flavors present but not overpowering - very easy to drink. Everyone loves it now, saying it tastes better than Hoegaarden. Brewed DME kit with White Labs yeast. Lightly toasted the coriander seeds before pitching (maybe this is why the coriander was so strong initially) but didn't crack them. Didn't filter wort (left coriander/citrus in) when pouring to primary. Fermented in primary for 3.5 weeks (FG of 1.012, 5.1%ABV, hit at 12 days), no secondary. Bottle conditioned half, kegged half. Didn't cool wort fast enough and beer developed pretty bad chill haze (crystal clear at room temp, foggy when refrigerated). With 1+ months of aging I found this to be a really terrific beer. Anyone who likes Blue Moon / Hoegaarden will like this.
