3.38/5 rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Hazy orangey peach color with a lot of yeasties that I conciously tried to keep out and a nice big creamy white head that fades to a thick film with some nice lacing. Very bready malt aromas without much of the expected spicy, zesty citrus aromas that I love in the style. Quick hit of spicy pepperyness with a bit of lemon before the overiding bready malt takes over and brings the beer to its somewhat cloyingly malty finish. Very disappointing for the style and brewery. Refreshingly crisp and medium light in the start the brew seems to grow fuller and more cloying the longer it sits on my tongue. Overall a decent brew but slightly disappointing having sampled several other brews from New Belgium.

Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!
A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.
S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.
T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.
M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.
I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
