3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 As Skinny Dip. Looks and smells okay. An interesting beer, really reminds me more of a kolsch than a belgian ale. Crisp but decent.
As Loft. 8,4,10,4,17. A little high. Springy flavor, somewhat spicy. It sort of lifts up off the tongue. Excellent and exciting.

The scent is of fine english tea roses. Just divine. A sip only enhances this flavor. Just like drink pure rose water. But better. Thumbs up for this beer.

The aroma is hoppy, ans floral. The appearance is a honey like gold with a thin white head. The flavor is hoppy and smooth. The beer is very easy to drink. Overall very nice.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2003 Light and hoppy, quite mild. Only slightly spicy, some weird citrus thing that I can't put my finger on. Not bland, but not exactly flavorful. Some graininess. Small head, good retention. Certainly a hot weather beer, which is quite appropriate for this day in Texas.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and floral. A lighter bodied “Belgian?” ale. Malts are fruity. Hops are spicy. Light and refreshing. There is a lot of stuff going on here, and I find myself having real trouble describing just what. Its dry hopped and very crisp. The low alcohol doesn’t seem to affect the flavors. Interesting beer.. Will need to re-taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is fruity and a touch biter

I thought this was rather amusing: the label suggests this is "in a category all its own" but I brewed a beer VERY similar to this a few months ago - just a basic German wheat that I dry-hopped for some extra character. Not to sound too cocky though - this was a bit better than my batch. Rather light with very modest levels of malt and grain, but the hops here provided a nice little flourish to the otherwise straight-forward recipe. Very nice, crisp and refreshing, although not at the top of my list for individuality (although, I may be a slight bit biased).

Not too much in the way of aroma, but I really like the character the Kaffir leaves add to this brew. Another thumbs up for New Belgium.

Not much to compare this to. Maybe an extra pale. Very refreshing and zesty. Citrus dominates. Very hoppy for a "belgian ale". Very good session beer for the summer.
