3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Herbal, grassy, mountain river, earthy aromas. Herbal, earthy, cracker, hoppy flavors. A hop forward golden ale, but not too hop forward, still feels very much like a golden. I enjoy the New Belgium throwbacks. Even though this isnít a favorite of mine, this would be a good camping beer. Could easily drink quite a few.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very mild slightly sweet aroma, pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Very interesting flavor, with a touch of sweetness from the wheat, and a hint of spice from the rye. These combine with earthy hop notes to come together quite well. Medium bodied, with a slightly slick mouthfeel from the oats. A very nice change of pace from the Marzens and pumpkin beers that usually come out for Autumn.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
what a nice surprise, especially being a sale beer! aroma is very well balanced light citrus and earthy hops and malt. soft on the palate, and tasty, even though the hops come through a touch more in the aroma than the smell. Very very nice seasonal for just over a buck a bottle. recomended. 10/18/09-had on tap for the first time. even softer on the palate...near perfect body for the style, and still very tasty and aromatic."
