New Belgium Heavy Melon
appearance: had from a bottle, so N/A (4 pts to be fair). aroma: smells like an amber lager spiked with watermelon juice. taste: caramel, brown toast, light honey, watermelon juice, hint of lime. finish: lingering slightly sour watermelon juice with a bit of crackery caramel malt. notes: Canít tell from the commercial description, but this feels really like an amber lager spiked with watermelon and lime juice--as the aroma indicated. Wasnít terrible. Bottle courtesy of Christian.

New Belgium Mattís Ale
Drinking on Tap at my backyard. Received a keg as a going away present. After god knows how long after brewing and questionable storage practices from TX to OK to MO - still drinking very well. Thanks to Wally for the amazing gift from everyone here, wish you could make it!

Surprisingly refreshing. Not too strong on the melon which is good. I have had several melon beers that are way to strong and this is a good balance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

New Belgium Heavy Melon
Pours clear golden with a thick and frothy, though effervescent, porcelain head. Sweet watermelon dominates the aroma while letting malt and woody hops to peep through. Malt and hops have more say in the flavor, though sweetish watermelon continues to be the lead. Mouthfeel features so-so body and not much fizz. Still, a good one to take the edge off a sweltering day - and damn, itís not yet officially summer, but Atlanta is already hotter than habanero peppers!

New Belgium / Hof Ten Dormaal Lips of Faith - Golden Ale
Bottle - lightly hazy gold with a moderate lace - nose of honey, dandelion, pepper, grass - flavor is medium sweet, with some moderate spicy phenolics and finishing grassy and citric hop bitterness that balance somewhat - sunflower seeds add a bit of earthiness, nuttiness - a little vegetal, maybe - itís decent, but not worth the price.

12fl oz bottle poured into a Rochefort trappist chalice. Dark amber with plenty of bubbles, very little head. Lots of bubblegum in the nose (literally- I dipped my nose in it while sniffing it!), heavy on the candy sugar. Same mass of candy in the flavor, some banana and alcohol. Good but almost too sweet.

330ml served in a pint glass. Pours a clear orange color forming a medium, creamy and medium persistent white head with medium retention and lots of lacings formed and left in the glass. Very flowery and fruity nose. Strong notes of tangerine, mango, pine and flowery hops. Hints of resin. Slightly sweet upfront taste. Again, strong notes of tangerine, mango, pine and flowery hops. Light body. Medium to low carbonation. High drinkability. Classic American IPA.

Pours an opaque blonde like a typical wheat beer. Nose is strong citrus with some bitter hops and wheat. Flavor is a similar profile and more strongly hopped than expected. Finish is wheat heavy with a touch of grapefruit. Not bad even if a little odd.

Pint at Moeís. Pours a really crystalline amber with a tall white head. It smells delightfully hoppy with the right level of tangerine behind it. Papaya and light caramel come through too. The palate is medium with an accessible bitterness. Melon, marmalade, and papaya become very noticeable in the flavor. The use of fruit is very tasteful here. It rounds out the beer rather than becoming the real focal point. Very well executed beer.

Pours a golden copper with no foam head. Aroma is melon, light citrus, and grain. Flavor is heavier on the melon, with barely a touch of citrus, and toasted malt. Has a light, crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. A little on the light side, but much more interesting than not. I like it.

New Belgium Citradelic
Clear golden with some carbonation rising. A lot of lacing left from the almost white foam. Some tangerine in the aroma but not a lot. More citrus fruit. The first sip does bring tangerine along with that fruit. This could use a little more carbonation. Soft pale malts. Almost like a juice drink with all of that fruit. This just isnít that well done.
