Reviewed from notes.
Pours out an orangish-amber with a flash head and minimal lacing. There are some medium sized sediment floaters in the glass, as well. Heavier side of medium body and carbonation levels.
Smells and tastes of sweet pineapple and passionfruit with a caramel malt and lemon verbena herbal accents. The flavor has an additional emphasis on green appleskins and musty malts that wasn't apparent from the nose. There is also a significant cooked vegetable off-flavor that I would have expected from a macro, not from New Belgium. It could have been a good brew if not for that off-flavor, and sadly I cannot recommend this one because of it.

Had on tap at Max's (from notes)
A: Copper with light lacing.
S: Lots of yeast and farmhouse scents. Wet blanket.
T: A bit of funk with subtle citrus but mostly farmhouse. Subdued odd earthy flavors/aftertaste.
M: Nice and prickly. Coarse bubbly.
O: I think the earthiness came from the prickly pear.
Serving type: on-tap
