Pours a very light yellow color, lots of carbonation. Sweet straw aroma. The flavor is very crisp and mellow, a bit of cereal and fruit. A nice refreshing summer beer.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was bready and dough. The mild citrus crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Middle of the road beer. Pours an ugly pee yellow. Smell is nice, like breakfast scones. Taste starts of hoppy and very dry. Not any bitter aftertaste, just a little boring. Like a very dry pilsner.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Hotel glass (half pint, half snifter)
From: Wilburís Total Beverage in Fort Collins, Colo.
Price: Part of a variety 6-pack for $9.99
Purchased: May 2, 2013
Consumed: May 4, 2013
Misc.: Best by Aug. 18, 2013
Poured a yellow pale clear color with one finger of off-white head. Very bubbly. Good white foamy uneven lacing on the sides. Good retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled raspberries, blackberries and boysenberries along with floral hops. Seemed to be some Belgian spices in there as well. Also some grassy malts.
Initial taste reminded me of a much lighter version of Fat Tire. Got hay, grains, grass and sourdough bread. Some boysenberries, lemon grass and some bitter Belgian spices.
Light body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Watery abrupt finish. Crisp and good for the summer.
Not a bad beer for the style. Great for the summer. Iíd probably have it again.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It poured a pale amber color with a white head. The aroma was of syrup, some tropical fruits with a hint of strawberry, melon and mild earth. The taste was earthy, herbal and peppery with lemon and some pale malts. Very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the tap a clear amber - not much head from the pour, but the off-white head does leave some good lacing. Aroma is mainly fruity with a yeasty undertone. Crisp, refreshing flavor is a nice introduction to summer - fruity, malty, a little yeasty, subtly sweet. Texture has average fizziness and viscosity. If not New Belgiumís best, certainly a decent one.
