2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle pours bright yellow with white fluffy head. The initial aroma is mild Belgian style esters but very mild. The flavor for me taste like hay with stuff thrown into it. Get a very mild citrus on the back end. This is another beer I don’t understand from them.

Pours a clear pale golden with an initially full white head that soon becomes a thin layer with plenty of lace. Aroma is bread dough and mild hop cones. Taste is sweet pale malt, bread dough, grass and mild bitterness. Decent.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear gold pour - lively carbonation that eventually produces a frothy lace - fairly sweet nose of honey, pear, apple, with a slight lemon tartness and mildly floral hops - quite sweet up front, with a syrupy texture - innocuous pale malt sweetness - no Belgian character to speak of - the New Belgium website states this is brewed with Nugget hops and a "hybrid ale yeast" - not sure what that means, but here we have a beer with lightly resinous hops, moderate sweetness, and little yeast character to speak of, tasting more like a clumsy american "craft" lager than a Belgian ale - pretty poor showing.

6r from Walmart n Phoenix. Poured cold mug. Sunny spring like day in January. Lemony as advertised. A little too much lemon for me but not a huge lemon fan here. Maybe a touch of grapefruit. It's no somersault; but, a good blonde. Bit of barley. A little spice. Has the new belgium underly synonymous with all new belgium. That little nutty aftertaste like in fat tire, a bit of that. Very much like a fat tire blonde.
