This smells like a watered-down version of a watered-down, nondescript Belgian ale. It doesn’t taste bad, but that’s because it hardly has any taste at all. On the exhale there’s a little hint of something, like maybe I had a Belgian ale several hours ago and noticed something on my own breath when I burped. I will never drink this again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle; Pour is fairly clear, light / medium gold with a frothy fine bubbled white head into this glass. It retains fairly well here, with sticky lacing presence. The nose is caramel malt and nutty notes, moving to pie crust and and feint spicing. The flavor profile is bittering initial, moving to mineral water, more crust and nuttiness - its almost obnoxious (the malt presence) ,with more of the lime (I guess) - It falls flat for me - the opposite of uplifting - but this wasnt exactly something made for me

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours golden to amber color with a frothy head. the aroma is malt, citrus. the flavor is malty, with some caramel, and lime and grass. very light kinda boring. overall very nice for a light beer for a hot summer but not worth picking up on its own

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, enjoyed at robotopera’s lakehouse in MI (why aren’t they sending this to OH yet? NB launch is so stingy). Date on the bottle reads 30/nov/14. Clear orange color. Finger and a half of off white head. Leaves good, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Good light spice, citrus, light herbal aromas. Moderate sweet taste, light spicy, light bitterness. Not a bad belgian session ale.

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.
