2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
It pours a light golden with a white head with larger than normal bubbles in the head., There is a fair amount of lacing that is produced as the head disappears. The aroma had floral notes mixed with yeast. There are some citrus tones as well. It is a bit watery for the taste with some hops, citrus, and a semi dry finish. It has a bit more carbonation than is needed which takes away from the taste.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. It pours a clear golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is mildly toasted with hints of caramel and lightly herbal, floral hops. The flavor is similarly toasty bread crust, light caramel and very light floral hops. Kind of a watery mouthfeel, but I actually enjoyed this for a simple session ale. Nothing really Belgian about it and not any hint of the Kaffir lime to my palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty tasty summer beer. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Grass and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little malt backbone.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from some generic liquor store with outrageous prices outside of Indianapolis. Pours a light amber/caramel body under an inch of off-white head that retains well. Aroma of soapy yeast and grains. Similar taste as the nose. Maybe some subtle hop note in the finish. Medium carbonation and light/medium body. I usually don't bash a brewery but, once again, I'm not impressed by New Belgium brews. I don't understand why their offerings are everywhere now. I taste no distinction between this and Yuengling.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice rich golden/amber color on this, thin frothy head. Looks is the best part of this beer. Aroma is almost non-existent, taste comes in with some sweetish malt and a touch of hops bitterness. Finish is very abrupt, and a little dry.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 Nose of Belgian yeast, dankness, fruit and suggestions of spice. A clear copper pour with a thin rapidly dissipating white head and no lacing. Crackers, toasted malts, biscuit, florals, cereal with a satisfyng almost dry hoppy finish. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, I enjoy the flavor profile.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not crazy about this one. Thin body with citrus flavor that is lacking any real character. Just doesn’t seem much to this brew other than tasting like a cup of lemonaide or limeaide with a beer mixed into it. While not flat out horrible and I did finish all four in the sampler pack, it is something that I really don’t want more of.

Part of the folly pack ,very light and some hop taste and aroma, a bit of citrus followed by maltyness and a crisp finish. Nothing special in the beer, seems like a summer very session able beer

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - Have they gone back to the name Loft? I know the bottle I had recently was not from all the way back in 2006. Pours as a mild hld with a one finger head. It has a mild aroma with some yeast and citrus. The flavor is mild and sweet. It’s light-bodied and overall rather bland. This is a perfectly drinkable brew that does not impress me.
