COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Lemon Peel and infused with Espresso
Giddy Up is a delicious juxtaposition of coffee, sustainably grown in Brazil and espresso-roasted locally, pressed into an ale with the deep color of a copper cowboy kettle. First whiff is full of sweeet caramel, toffee, latte. Then, a hint of lemon scone flavor from the addition of lemon peel. Body is creamy, resonant of espresso, yet the finish is bright, even a bit frisky. An ale to git along with...

Pours a cola brown. Smells of roasted malt and coffee (duh). Taste is pretty much the same...dark roasted malt and coffee. I can barely taste the lemon peel, but its there. Has a hint of that earthy note that most New Belgium offerings tend to have.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose has just a faint quick whiff of some citrus up front, but is dominated by the coffee in there. Taste is also pretty coffee laden, though there is a faint bit of sourness at the end. Actually quite tasty and very drinkable.

Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours coca cola brown with a thin khaki head. Has some solid lacing in the glass. Has a nice roasted coffee thing on the nose with a hint of a lemon cookie thing as well.lots of coffee on the tongue but its not overpowering. Finishes clean. Another solid entry from New Belgium.

12oz bottle. Amber-brown, filtered, garnet body. Steady off-white head. A lemon coffee beer, huh. The medium body is decent enough, but the in yoru face artificial flavors are kind of off putting. Tastes like a pretty good, easy going coffee beer that got spiked by a little lemon flavoring...which of course heavily detracts. Someone should really ban NG from the flavor additives for awhile...this is another beer unfortunately tweaked, but not into oblivion..still enjoyable...grew on me a lot.

12 oz. bottle. It pours a a dark reddish orange color with an off white head. The aroma is decidedly coffee forward with some cocoa and hints of vanilla. The flavor is big with lukewarm coffee, some citrus and a bit on the acidic side with not much else. Nice effort, but not real exciting.

rougeau13 (2723) - Richmond, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Clear brownish amber with a small beige head. Coffee and toasted nuts aroma. Taste is malty with some nutty and coffee flavors; barely sweet and just a little bit more than that bitter. Aftertaste kind of cola-like. Medium bodied and a little dry.

improvjock (328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of fresh coffee grounds, toffee, and roastyness. A little creamy, but kind of thin. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, and slightly acidic. Not bad, really

Hints of espresso in the aroma. Pours a hazy brown/red with an off white head and good lacing. Lots of coffee with a nutty character and a medium body.

Brown ale with the destinct smell of coffee. Looks almost like carbonated coffee too. Taste is mostly coffee with some caramel lurking in there. Never noticed the lemon the bottle said was in there but dont know that I really wanted to have lemon in my coffee so it was all good. Really good breakfast beer (yep drank them after eating my eggs and bacon). Hope to see this one come out in 6 packs so I dont have to keep buying samplers.

On tap @ New Belgium. Brown pour with a white head. Big coffee aroma. Toast, light roast, and sweet sugar. Slight creaminess. Nice creamed coffee flavor. Roast, toast, and brown sugar. Slight nuttiness. Quite nice.
