Pours a light gold, with white head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is light and very drinkable. A refreshing citrusy blend. The perfect beer for a warm summer day. Thumbs up!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I do tend to enjoy New Belgiumís lighter beers more than most but this one is not really doing it for me. It is also another point of evidence indicating there has never been a really good beer brewed w/ kaffir lime leaves. Seriously, I donít know what those even are except for something you throw into your shitty beer for no good reason. Skinny Dip is a perfectly clear golden brew that has a foamy and short lived head. Nose and flavor both are pleasantly light and mild but this beer doesnít really offer anything at all to grab your attention. I am getting some Grape Nuts malt character and an almost imperceptible touch of lemon lime flavor which is perhaps just the knowledge of those damn leaves getting the best of my imagination. As it warms, it does open up a bit w/ some more citrus notes coming out as well as some fruity apple yeast character. This is fittingly light bodied and highly carbonated and finishes w/ some earthy bitterness. This is stuff isnít bad to drink but really I think New Belgium offers some way better choices if you are into something light and refreshing. Check out either Snap Shot or Shift for a lighter beer from the same brewery that wonít bore you to death.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light citrus hops, barley and a hint of lime in the aroma and taste. Best beer ever? No, but far from the worst as well.

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.

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.
