3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A summer beer I can get behind. The sour citrus is refreshing, yet the beer has enough weight and mouthfeel to render it a fine companion to food or just as an enjoyable afternoon quaff. More importantly, this is a great introduction to sour beers. Not biting or bacterial, the sourness adds to the beer without becoming the beer. Best summer offering from NB in some time.

Aromas of orange peel, perfume, flora, and fresh-cut grass. Clear pale gold with a lasting, white head. Dry, bitter, with round citrus fruit, and subtle dried apricot. Light, crisp, and with a quick, clean, citrusy finish.

10oz on tap. This must be a new offering. Looks like a light pilsener in the glass, medium bright white head, clear. Very light but hoppy taste. Very light body. Floral notes, delicate. Lingers well. Good new beer, different and memorable!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of pale malt, light lemons, a hint of grassy hops and a very light and mild scent. Light to Medium-bodied; Good grassy hop flavour at first with some very pale malt/wheat flavours and a definite lemon and citrus flavour. Aftertaste shows more lemons and wheat than anything else, but a bit of herbal and grassy flavours show a hint of hops at the end. Overall, a nice and light summer beer that shows some good flavours, but nothing complex nor earth-shattering. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia and given to me by a hockey teammate on 17-April-2013.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, Another foray into obscure fruits from these guys. Yet again. Pours a very pale amber color with a medium sized frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of syrupy, tropical fruits with some strawberry, melon and mild earth. The taste is earthy, herbal and peppery with lemon and pale malts. The taste does not match the aroma much at all. Medium bodied, slight lingering bitterness. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consist of moderate grass, floral notes, orange peel, and a touch of fruit. It pours a transparent yellow/gold with a two finger white head that settles to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is a good amount of sticky webbing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate fruit and light citrus/orange. The finish has light orange peel, floral notes, grass, and just a hint of lemon. Itís light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, itís refreshing and drinkable...a solid summer thirst quencher.

I donít know what soursop is but this light and strangely fruitful beer is a nice change of pace and quite tasty on a hot day. It has a light Belgian tang to it as well

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Monkfruit! Soursop! Those arenít exactly adjectives that would draw most people to a beverage purchase. But this beer is definitely not as weird as its ingredients, it is a solid Belgian with a bit of yeasty funk and a nice citrusy smell to it. A little bit of sourness in the aftertaste. Probably wonít be a big enough hit to be offered repeatedly, but Iíd drink it again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw pour with white head. Slight fruit and earthy hop aroma. Slight wheat-like bite mixed with a bit of sourness and grassy hops on the taste. Medium/high carbonation with light body. Clean and crisp finish. A decent all-around beer but it didnít quite click with me.
