COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop flavors are standing in the foreground of this fermented painting, yet dedicated New Belgium drinkers will certainly notice in the background our signature swirl of fruity, estery aromas generated by an authentic Belgian yeast strain.

Kind of peachy. Banana. Clear and effervescent. Straw. Easy sipping beer. Decent.

Butters (3920) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Clear golden pour with ring of white head. Notes of coriander and lightly fruity. Slight bready yeast character. Refreshing, with a bit of a noble hop or an orange rind bitterness just on the finish. Not bad. Nothing amazing.

jhamp9 (1209) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Clear amber pour with a white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is doughy and spicy Belgian yeast with some herbal notes. Taste is bready, spicy, earthy, and herbal. Soft carbonation.

Luvystypotables (904) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Subdued aroma of hops and malt, pours a clear gold colour with a lasting white well laced head. Light carbonation, dry feel, medium body with a taste of hops and a hint of malt. Slightly dry finish.

bartzluke (40) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Boulevard stemmed glass. Light amber color. Mild carbonation. Small head with great lacing. Very attractive. Rich nose. Maybe malty or cereal? Creamy mouthfeel- much more than I would have expected for the color. Delicious taste. A bit of orange, a little biscuit, and a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. All-in-all an awesome beer. I am pleasantly surprised.

Block (1637) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Sweet, mild, some hops throughout. Pretty straight forward. A little bready.

luttonm (2868) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle in DC. Pale yellow, soft sweet yeast malt body. Wort like, inoffensive. Nothing special, easy drinker.

Caytinator (994) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2015
12oz bottle. Clear beer, decent lacing, strong yella beer. Aroma is strong and definitely has a lot of belgian characteristics, good. Actually a very light palate, but also a long aftertaste. Taste has a lot of aromatic hops, pretty darn good. Recommended.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
jpf (11) - - FEB 6, 2015
Quite bland. Hoppy flavor comes through a bit over top of the full-bodies wheat flavor. There are some nice spicy notes. Way too much going on here.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
12 ounce bottle from a Folly Pack. Pours a clear golden with a large foamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of doughy malt, bread, stone fruit, floral and herbal notes. The taste is floral notes, candied fruits, bready malt. Medium bodied, refreshing.
