poured from a bomber into my new belgium tulip glass, the color is nice it's orange with a hint of brown and a hint of red thrown in, head is minimal and small amount of carbonation rise through the brew.
The smell initially strikes me as that of a very mellow pale ale with a little dry finish. Upon closer inspection I also get some fruits like pear and apple as I would in a white wine. There is also a hint of spicing in there which this beer alludes to on the bottle.
The flavor is very mellow and for me at least it is difficult to pick out distinct tastes in it. Everything is subtle but on the whole I think it comes together quite well. The malt contribution is a honey biscuit type flavor which works well with the rye which gives it a slightly dry aftertaste. The body of the flavor is a mingling of fruits and spices. The citrus comes through as sweet and slightly sour taste. very well rounded and very well balanced in my opinion
The mouthfeel is great, there's a smooth aspect as well as a spicy one, slightly creamy and a little poppy, excellent.

Served from bottle into a New Belgium globe. Poured red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, BIG wheat, BIG grain, spice, and big sweetness. The flavor was of sweet malt, spices, grain, subtle tea, sugar, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. With this being my first brew from the style I can honestly say that I don’t have a refined palate for this style, however, I was not a massive fan of it. The aroma was very sharp when it came to sweetness/maltiness. The flavor was a little bit better with a bit more balance. That was a very welcomed change as based on the aroma, I was rather concerned once I smelled it. Glad I got the chance to try this one though, but don’t think I will go out of my way to do so again.
