3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Saw ’soursop and monkfruit’ in the ingredients and immediately picked up a 6er, as those are some of my fav tropical fruits and juices when traveling! Looks like a pale ale, drinks like a brilliant sessionable Belgian brew. The fruit notes are blended perfectly with the sweet malts making this potentially my beer for the summer this year! (PLEASE KEEP THIS AVAILABLE ALL SUMMER NB!!)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours golden with a thin off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a medium-bodied light malt, maybe wheat, flavor with a hint of some strange fruit - must be the monk fruit - and a bitter finish. It’s a nice summer fruit beer with flavor.

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. It’s a gorgeous straw color with a fluffy white head. Sweet, floral flavor that’s tart without being bitter or hoppy. It finishes with a lemony taste that sticks around pleasantly. I’m not sure where the criticism is coming from with this beer. It’s very pleasant and does exactly what it’s supposed to do: provide a delicious summer refresher.

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.
