3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 A nice well flowing low alcohol belgian ale..its nice to know that these can indeed be made. The aroma is a mixture of pure hoppiness, forest smell, grains and wheat, a hint of malt and crispiness. It pours a light orange color with a mild carbonation level and a thin frothy white head which lasted not too long. The flavor is pleasant with merange, hops, syrupy vanilla, lime, and fig leaves dominating. This beer reminded me of sipping on mother earth herself. The carbonation level is well in check, with a dry, semi sweet ending with a touch of bitter in mid taste. Definitely dry hopped, you can taste it right in the aftertaste. A good brew. Thanks to mitch for the brew!!
Rerate at the brewery. What the hell happened here...slight hop and pine nose, heavy carbonation, a tad bit of lemon in the taste, but VERY weak body..slightly earthy with orange peel and citrus, but very weak

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2006 Small headed orange soda body with the enticing smells of orange, honey suckle, and mystique. Light bodied with an intriguing orange blossom taste with mysterious summer orchids in the mix. Flavorful and refreshing. Great to have on a summer keg. Ah, now I see, the mystique must have something to do with the kaffir lime leaves. Interesting...
