4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Aromas of green grapes, slightly sweet and tart. Itís a gorgeous straw color with a fluffy white head. Sweet, floral flavor thatís tart without being bitter or hoppy. It finishes with a lemony taste that sticks around pleasantly. Iím not sure where the criticism is coming from with this beer. Itís very pleasant and does exactly what itís supposed to do: provide a delicious summer refresher.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at New Belgium Hub at DIA. Clear bright yellow pour with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, grassy hops and a touch of citrus. The finish is sweet with a doughy malt and fruit aftertaste. Slightly above average thirst-quencher overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of belgian yeast and some light citrus. Flavor is a bit light in the Belgian yeast with a tad more bitterness coming through and it has a slightly watery mouthfeel. Overall this is just another middle of the pack offering from NB.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at BTBF. Pours with a crystal clear yellow hued body and a faint white head. Aromas are spicy, phenolic, oddly fruity in a way that I cannot really pinpoint. Crisp, light malt character, medium ester. Flavors are spicy, grainy and fruity with a touch of citrus. Bone dry, maybe some wheat. Dry, a bit thin bodied. Refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a nice white head that sticks around. Subtle fruit in the nose mixed with a touch of straw. Slightly bitter, not much belgian yeast character, a little bitterness in the finish that is more fruit rind than hops (though I might just be imagining it). Easy to drink, not sure what monk fruit or soursop are, or if they are very present in the beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fine summer seasonal by New Belgium. Pours an incredibly light color and very clear, a bit of very white and tight foam. Powdery aroma of grapefruit and light citrus. This is a light bodied and crisp beer with above average carbonation. Thirst quenching by means of carbonation and usage of citrus. Almost reminds me of the soft drink "Squirt". Not bad.
