Great Lakes Holy Moses White Ale

This 5.4% ABV white ale is from the Great Lakes Brewing Company of Cleveland, Ohio. It was part of their spring sampler pack. It is brewed with coriander, orange peel and chamomile.

The beer pours a hazed golden yellow with nearly champagne like carbonation streaming up the glass. There is an inch of thick, white, whipped egg-white foamy head. The aroma is floral and spices, with a touch of honey sweetness. The taste follows the aromas, with the floral, spices and honey-touched grain in sweet harmony, with just a bit of citrus tang bouncing of the herbs and spice. The finish is dry with a light floral bitterness. The beer drinks smooth, yet nicely carbonated. This is a really fine white ale.
