3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Fluffy white head atop a faintly hazed straw colored body. Grassy and citrus-like American hop nose, light gum, some juicy apricot / peach, though still a tad raw like straight up hop cones. Bitter bubble gum, flowers berries and cut grass raw nose, some tropical / pineapple resemblance. Some chalk / vitamin yeast seems to blur and mute the hop and malt aroma. Medium to full body, medium to high sweetness with a lot of chewy malt and saccharin. Yeast and wheat both lend creaminess to the body. A step up in quality for New Belgium IMO.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Mostly clear and bright rich yellow pour with a small spotty white head. Delicate and pleasant citrus and floral nose. Taste is mild floral and citrus, but finishes a little dry and rough. This is just okay - not too bad, not great either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear thin gold body that supports a white head of foam. Just after pouring it the aroma had a peach fruitiness to it. Upon further inspection there’s malt sweetness, slight levels of fruity notes maybe apricot, peach and mango as well as some faint hoppier or tarter citrus like notes. The taste is similar with modest levels of dry apricot and peach fruitiness rolling quickly into some malt sweetness. To midway a bit of malts and a slightly wheat like grainy malt note surface just as it heads into a lemon to lime like bitter hop to tartness. Pretty nice and balanced and easy drinking with plenty of flavor.
