Pours a bright, crystal clear orange with a quarter inch of white bubbles on top of the brew that leaves some stringy lacing. Citrus peel mixes in with a nice juniper accent. Sweet malt backbone along with herbal undertones.
First sip brings somewhat sweet malts upfront mixing with juniper and citrus flavors that roll across the palate. Spicy and herbal with earth tones as it flows down. Mild bitterness on the end with a lingering juniper flavor.
Mouthfeel is smooth with good carbonation. Goes down easily and ends up being rather refreshing. I personally would've liked the juniper to be a little more forward, however it's still a tasty brew, if a tad on the sweet side. Thanks to Jeff and Debbie for this one!

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.
