LowBrau (134) - Tonawanda, New York, USA - APR 3, 2017
Pale colored, like hazy lemonade, with a small white head. Apple and citrus aromas, skunky and piney hops. Sweet, tart, and bitter balanced well against each other, a little too bitter, if anything.

November 22nd, 2014 - New Belgiums tact to winter has always seemed a little different, and a little deviant. Instead of pushing out a slew of heavier beers, winter warms and brown, sweet brews, they go with lighter approaches. Take, for example, the Accumulation, which is a light gold beer with a slight haze and a slight transparency, topped with a centimeter and a half of mottled foam. To all appearances, this could be a pilsener, though the light hops in the aroma gives the style away. This scent is lightly floral but not too intense. The palate is light and refreshing, with a good carbonation that Id sooner expect in a summer style beer. Notes of white grape and dandelion also play to the summer season, with a dankness in the aftertaste. It seems like New Belgium has borrowed some of the flavor of the famous San Diego IPA and plopped it into this beer, creating a miniature and milder version. All of this is quite unexpected, especially when I look out the window and confirm that it is still indeed cold, with lines of snow left on the ground. But it does work well when the house or cabin is warm and the body temperature hits summer highs.

ElCapitan22 (361) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2017 Pours a pale yellow color and has some decent lacing. It has an aroma of lemony hops. It has a juicy, citrusy taste without being too bitter. This is a really smooth beer. Like this a lot!

UPDATED: APR 21, 2017 Light flowery grapefruit smell, lots of floaties, smooth grapefruit taste of the same smell, light complexity...Good for an IPA, but not great...Lightly sweet...At home day before superbowl x2
