Discounting the souring taste that New Belgium is starting to get. The Skinny Dip in its first few years was a nice light summer ale with beautiful mineral water taste. It definitely used to make me feel like I was at the river.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden amber with thin white head, disappears rapidly. Aroma of peanuts and caramel. Taste is an odd combination of incompatible spice, not very pleasant.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/30/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, lime, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops, spice, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, lime, orange peel, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light earthy/peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange zest, lime, toast, biscuit, light caramel, herbal, grass, and light pepper on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of citrus hops, spice, and bready malt flavors; with a nice crisp hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Flavors are definitely on the light side, but it does not feel watery. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly dry mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice and pleasant blonde ale. Well balanced citrus hop, spice, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear golden orange. Aromas are slight: citrus, tea. A rather weak flavor profile, light bodied, blandly crisp. You get what you ask for: low on calories, low on taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold in color... Aroma of light malts, lime, citrus hops... Flavor is fairly thin, light malts with notes of lime and hops on finish... Basically, a bud light lime with slightly more body... Boring beer

Bottle on July 8th as Skinny Dip. Lightly sweet, over light body, some lime. Does what it sets out to do I guess.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours golden with a frothy white head. aroma is malt and citrus. taste is that of a light beer(blah!), with slight malt and citrus notes and very light on the hops. medium body with a slight tart finish. A Belgium ale, really? I already have a slight tire growing around my waste from the good Belgium ales I have drank over my life. I see no reason to make a light style of one. Not a fan.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear golden brew with frothy white head. Aroma of hops, citrus. Taste is sweet malt at the start with a decent grass / citric finish. Mild and quaffable all around but more character than the vast majority of light brews (and more than many standard brews.) If I drank light beer I’d switch to this.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty flavorful for a light beer. The whole concept of an 'after workout' beer is great. Pours a clear amber. Mild bitterness but pretty run of the mill.
