I love this seasonal from New Belgium. It goes down almost like a wheat beer, but itís got a lot more complexity and the citrus is strong. Iím surprised this is a "winter" beer. Itís what Iíd want on a hot summer day. (Thankfully, I live in Florida, so itís not even close to being winter yet). Hooray for New Belgium coming to the Sunshine State!

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a couldy yellow with a bright white head. Aroma is subtle lemongrass grassy floral and doesnít change much as the beer elevates in temp. Flavors are really nice fruirty citrus with a medium carbonation and a nice little bitter finish. It drinks like a 4% abv beer making this a tasty session beer for the new season. Will be buying this again!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Momos. Cloudy piss yellow pour with no head. Fairly hoppy nose, citrus, pine with light grainy malts and yeast. Light zesty body with flavors of pine, spruce, grass and as it warms yeastiness starts to become more noticeable. Snappy bitter end. Not bad.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Pours a clear golden on tap with thin lacy head that sticks lightly. Aroma of peppery yeast esters, pine and floral hops. Taste follows, nice hop presence hides the esters. Pretty nice, bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light golden with a soft snow white head that leaves a light bit of lacing. Aroma is sweet and succulent with some light notes of spruce, some juicy passion fruit. Full bodied flavor with some light bitter citrus notes, some mango fruitiness, a touch of maple syrup sweetness. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Excellent.
