Great beer, thought last years was not as hoppy though but had a bigger sour kick than this years, I dont know if it is just me or not. One of my favorites from New Belgium.

Pour is mostly transparent golden amber with lots of off white head. Nose is heavily resinous hop with citrus notes and a bit of candied sugar and light nights of bread crust and grain. Taste has a bit more grain up front, gets resinous, lots of hops, moderate sourness, a bit bitter in back, light acidity, candied sugar mid palate, citrus and some leathery brett notes. Medium body, a bit syrupy, decent carb.

Prying off the cap unleashes fruit, lemon, spice, herb, light short bread aromas.
It pours a hazy peach color under a very meager head but is surprisingly lacy.
The beer has a big lemony tart palate that comes in layers with light fruit and herbal notes.
It has a medium light body with very fine soft carbonation and a crisp, refreshing finish..
