Bottle. Tangerine, wheat malt, and orange peel/pine aroma. Pale yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel/pine flavor. Nice blending. Very good. Eberndt (235) - - DEC 6, 2013
Pretty decent overall yet it tasted a little thin. Frothy white head and pale amber in color. jcnielsen (3416) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle. I’m excited to try this New Belgium after being let down by some of their recent releases. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Grapefruit, passion fruit, hoppy, light spicy aromas. Grapefruit, orange, citrus, cracker flavors. I was expecting this to be a belgian white / ipa combo ala Boulevard/Deschutes Collaboration, so I was a little let down that the belgian white part was missing. Still a pretty nice IPA that I could knock back a few of after a day of skiing in Colorado. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Seems like a good candidate to stash away at the end of the season for a little Christmas in July. Bright citrus, florals and pepper. HighlandsBeerGuy (22) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2013
This pours a hazy yellow with a bit of a head. You smell floral and citrus. The taste is grassy with lemon. It also seems to have a fairly dry finish. I think it's crisp and refreshing ... Good taste and light. One of my favorite Christmas beers.

Nice clean tasting IPA with some spice notes. Not sure of this as a winter brew, however. drowland (9057) - Georgia, USA - DEC 3, 2013
11/26/13. On tap at Barley’s, downtown Asheville. Hazy orange pour with a small off-white head. Mild aroma, plenty of hops, citrus and a little dank, hints of spice. Nice mild flavor, citrus combination from the IPA aspect and the witbier aspect, mild spice. Not bad. Kita (2244) - Koper, SLOVENIA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottled, 0.355l. Clear straw color with small frothy white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of grainy malt, heavy piney and citric hops, coriander, spices and tropical fruits. Taste starts with light sweet grainy malt, following by fresh citric acidity, spicy mouthfeel and heavy bitter finish. Full body, syrupy texture and fizzy natural carbonation. This one has got the real winter taste, but I prefer warmer frutier and thicker flavors... hockey9930 (310) - - DEC 2, 2013
Cloudy yellow with minimal head. Strong hop aroma. All I taste is hops. Fairly fizzy with a light palate. I’m not usually an ipa drinker so it’s hard for me to judge. jandd1983 (4604) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 2, 2013
It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of hops, grapefruit, florals and subtle pepper. The taste was light, hoppy, grapefruit along with other citrus fruits that were mingled in. The body was a little thin and the carbonation was medium. Not bad.
