I liked drinking this. I enjoy that musty, damp smell that these sometimes produce. It was a good musky, hoppy aroma, mild but still pleasing. Kind of bland in the taste, definitely not a belgian to me, more like an apa, but something is missing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Musky slight hop aroma, nothing else. Clear gold color with almost no head and no lacing. Almost like an American pale ale that's underhopped, this wasn't that good at all, very disappointed. Palate is like water, nothing great. Overall I was bummed on this one, not even close to a Belgian ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A really interesting beer and not at all what I had expected when I bought the pack. It has a nice hop bite to it but also I am picking up "cumin" notes? perhaps the saaz coming through? clean finish with a definite wheat note. nice on a hot summer day, but nothing that I would write home about...

What a complex beer. Citrus, spice, esters, refreshing, crisp spicy hops of some sort maybe Saaz. All of these flavors but this is a very light beer a beer one could drink in place of cold water on a hot day. Outstanding

Golden hue, with a rapidly disappearing head and medium carbonation. Has a mild hoppy aroma and something else that eludes me. Some malt and citrus flavor, but mostly it is kind of seltzerish with some bitterness from the lime leaves. The finish is dry. I like this brewer, but this one just doesn't do much for me.

This is from New Belgium Brewery? I was shocked and disappointed by this offering. Who knows what style this, even the label doesn't say. Got a lot of unique scents and tastes, like wheat, lemon/lime, cereal, salt, and spice. A hybrid that just doesn't work for me.

This tastes like a warm windy day. I can't explain this. Hoppy but lifted flavor.

I really didn't know what to make of this, not quite a wheat beer,not quite a true Belgian,not quite pale...lemongrassy and light on the palete a nice summer beer, but I think after one I may move back to a stout.

Light, but inviting aroma. Hops and an imperceptible otherness, which is figured out immediately upon tasting the beer as being lime. The wheat malt lends a nice crispness and the beer is subtley, but nicely hopped. A very nice summer beer.

An amazing but mild aroma, green grassy, light citric, even some Saazy badness. Clean across the tongue, refreshing, lightly salty, the zestyness is there, so are the hops. Nice head retention. Very nice!
