3.8/5  rDev +11.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

For a light beer this is incredibly good. Compared with other blonde ale's it might not be as good but considering its something like 110 calories its pretty damn good.

It's very crisp and refreshing while also having some body and complexity to it. Great for a hot summer day, good session beer, could easily go through a 6 pack of this and not be too full.

All in all a great summer beer for outdoor activities like softball, BBQ's or working in the yard. One of my favorites from new belgium and certainly the best light beer I've ever had.

3.24/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: Clear, semi dark gold. Medium carb. Sticky dotted white lacing with low retention.

S: Wheat barley and a touch of tangy rye. Slightly sweet doughnut like bread.

T: Slightly sweet with a tangy rye bread. A little warm nutmeg taste through the middle. Finishes carbonic and watery. Quite clean with slight sour tang finish.

M: Mildly dry and good reasonably clean finish. Fairly thin.

T: Better than a macro light beer, but only by a slim margin. It sits in limbo between styles for me: If I want water I'll have water, if I want beer I'll drink something bigger.
