2.54/5  rDev -29.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.5

5.6% ABV confirmed. Best by May 19 2013. Acquired yesterday at a local SoCal beer store. 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a New Belgium stem-goblet in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average; I like a select few New Belgium beers (La Folie, Abbey, Trippel) but this doesn't seem like a solid one.

Served straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a three finger beige colour head of slight cream, decent thickness, and pretty good (~3.5 minute) retention for the modest ABV. Body colour is a dull pale copper. Transparent. Translucent. No yeast particles are visibile. No bubble show. Very thin weak lacing as the head recedes.

Sm: Lemon grass, lemon zest, pear, artificial lime, mango, and over-ripe fruit peel. Smells like a really crappy saison. Stale lemon. Off-putting. A fairly strong aroma.

T: Stale lemon, artifical lime, and pale malts. Some juicy pear is the only notable aspect. Simple and weak. Boring and bland. Lemon zest is dominant. Poorly balanced and built. Lacks complexity and subtlety. There's not much to say about it. I don't get any yeast character or alcohol. Quite underwhelming.

Mf: Soft (the highlight of the beer), smooth, and wet. Carbonation is adequate. Poor palate presence.

Dr: Drinkable but lackluster. A poorly executed pale ale that I definitely wouldn't get again. A failure from New Belgium. Why brew this? Very underwhelming.

Low C-
