Bought in Tennessee while in the Smokies! Poured into a pint glass.
I hadn't tried anything New Belgium before, so I bought one of everything they had at the Food City in Pigeon Forge when I was there on vacation. I didn't know how I would like it given the description, but I gave it a shot. The beer is advertised as a summer beer and it did not disappoint. The pour was great, a bright reddish gold with a fluffy white head that stuck around til the end. There wasn't much aroma from the beer, just a generally malty beeriness, but the kaffir lime made its presence known when I picked up the glass up to my mouth. I couldn't really identify any single element that made me like this beer so much, but I like the balance of the malt, hops, citrus, and the carbonation. The beer had good complexity, with the hop bitterness first, then the fullness of the malt, and finishing with the fruit. I liked it all, in my opinion much better than the rest of the brewer's offerings (i.e. Fat Tire). The beer was smooth and light but also very satisfying. I would buy again if it were ever available to me again!
