3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Best before: 09/08/13. Pours an extremely pale gold color with a big and fluffy off-white head that leaves rings of lacing behind. The aroma is light and wheaty with some lemons, zesty citrus rinds, grass, a subtle spiciness, and a touch of cereal grains. Goes down thin and fairly watery. The taste starts with plenty of wheat, a subtle breadiness, and semi-sweet cereal grains. Lemons, zesty citrus rinds, and a slight yeasty tang finish things off. Dry and bitter at the end. A dusting of spice. There is a unique fruity aftertaste that lingers a bit. Definitely drinkable, but ultimately rather forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light golden color and leaves the same color body with a half finger semi-white head that concaves gently into the body leaving a soapy looking bubbly lacing, smell is faint grainy grass, a little wheat, lemon, and other citrus - is that what monkfruit smells like - alright, but no yeast - ok - so what I guess - I dunno, the taste is slightly bitter yet sour but also slightly sweet through the wheat and citrus fruits, dry citrus aftertaste and finish, once again no yeast anywhere, pretty easy on the palatte, nothing bad, and nothing special, overall - hmm.... interesting take on a Belgian Pale Ale as no yeast is found anywhere throughout the entire six pack, quiet disclaimer to true Belgian fans, IMO, I don’t think you’ll like this, as it doesn’t seem yeasty enough

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle from Raley’s. It pours a very light yellow color with a small but lasting white head. The aroma is strong with mild sulfur and spice. Lager like… some hints of pineapple and bread as it warms. The flavor is clean and dry with light maltiness and spice, bread and hints of tropical fruit in the finish. Decent bitterness in the finish. I really kind of liked this one. One of my favorite new NB seasonals. Underrated.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a murky pale yellow with a thick foamy white head that lingers. Yeasty, spiced aroma, with malt, lemon zest, grass, and a hint of juicy fruits. Taste is clean and a little watery, of grass, malt, light fruit juice, and ends with a bit of a spicier bite. Lingering watery yeast. Light, but tasty.
