Sits in the pint glass light and golden. A bubbly head.
Smells of clean floral hops.
Tastes hoppy for a golden ale, but it works for me. Light sweet malts come through before the bitters wash down. Some modest spices present themselves that go unnoticed in the nose. Pretty tasty.
Feels particularly light given the hop profile. Its seems balanced, however. Maybe a bit overcarbonated. Had this from the bottle a few weeks back and don't recall having the same feeling.
Overall this is a very drinkable beer. I kind of wish this was New Belgium's summer seasonal instead of the fall.
Serving type: on-tap
