3.21/5 rDev -5.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
BBD of Aug 18 2013, part of mixed sixer
Pours an effervescent gold & a pinky of pearl colored head. Nice head retention & lacing
S: Pears, jammy notes, grassy & golden delicious apples
T: Follows the nose, plus grassyness, plus a touch of wet cornflakes & faint hints of lime up front. Over-ripe pears, a touch of coriander & white grape juice as this warms, plus a bit of green banana & pineapple. Finishes sweet, dry, grassy & faint grainyness, along with pears & slight kiss of ginger
MF: Light bodied, fairly vigirous carbonation, skews fruitty
Drinks easy, but too sweet & fruitty for my tastes
Serving type: bottle

2.89/5 rDev -14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75
Appearance is very pale and straw colored with cascading bubbles, a slight haze, and minimal head. Nose is uninspiring with a mild corn notes among a touch of wheat and cereal malt character. Taste is fruity with a vague reminiscence of fruity pebbles cereal. This definitely leans towards being sweet considering how light it is, the flavors are not working for me, even for what it is... An easy drinking summer beer. Mouthfeel is light and well carbonated. Overall, not a great addition to the nb lineup, really don't see this one as sticking around as nbs summer seasonal.
Serving type: on-tap

3.71/5 rDev +9.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Very light straw yellow. Ok lacing and not a whole lot of foam. There's almost a pale yellow tint as well.
Smell: Bitter herbs. Extremely medicinal, but very light as well. Some green apple.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Very bitter, herbal, and medicinal. I actually really enjoy the flavors. Perfect thirst-quenching flavor. Mouthfeel, however, is way to watery.
Overall: I would have really liked this with a heavier body and beefed up smells.
