Appearance: Looks like a pilsener with its clear yellow body & white frothy head.
Aroma: None, but I don't have a good sense of smell.
Flavor: Slightly velvety on the tongue w/ a bit of a tangy finish.
This is a good beer for a hot day.

First had this beer at a beer festival last year in August. Loved it back then, and still do. I think it's a beer you love or hate. Very different with a peppery taste. Wonderful aroma. A wheaty but ale aftertaste. Just a joy to quaff on a hot day.

What an unusual and delightful beer. Not much in the nose, and a deeper than just 'light yellow' color. Very dry for the most part. There is a big hole in the flavor but this is part of why it's interesting. It is a sharp, perfumy, hoppy, and odd beer. If you want something middle of the road look elsewhere, if you want something strangely different... here it is.

Reddish,golden color,small white head.Malty,mildly sweet aroma with some definate hops and hints of citrus.Malty taste,slight sweetness to it there is a mellow hop taste that comes out,the finish is a little weak mild hops with a some what watery feel.Not a bad brew but i think maybe just a little alcohol bump up would help it out with a few other tweeks to get it there,but over all it is still a very refreshing brew.

Golden color and very clear nd crisp. A slight head that has a very fine carbonation to it. The intitial lemon and citrus notes give way to a slightly bitter hop/herbal finish. A very drinkable offering from New Belgium.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2006 Dark lemon tint. Sticky tiny bubbles. Zippy lemon and grapefruit aroma. Hints of flowers, mineral, herbs, cantaloupe, iron, and. Very airy. Gently prickly, fluffy carbonation. Leafy hop flavors trailed by a subtle acidic twang, sweet, bready malts, carrot cake, spruce, nuts, and soft spices. Faint dry herbal bitterness, lemon cake, and faint mustiness at the finish with lots of balancing malt flavors. Accompanying soft citric hop belches. Belgian Ale? It doesn’t seem to contain any Belgian yeast strains, isn’t bottle conditioned, is excessively filtered, is rawly yeasty, grainy, etc.

Light golden amber, with a head that lasts. Nice lite floral hoppy nose. Refreshing dominant hop taste, with extended dry finish. Full and cleansing to the palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Floral scents that soon gives way to a strong hoppy nose. Golden in color with a fully diminishing white frothy head. Light to medium body, dry with a fizzy carbonated feel that only builds upon itself. Finishing with a long slightly acidic aftertaste.

This tastes so much like my first homebrew, which really says something. Pretty mild in all respects. Nothing really stands out. A good beer to convert Bud drinkers to the world of micro.
