3.44/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into my Duvel snifter

A - A very pale amber, almost a clear, translucent apple juice type color. Has a good sized head that leaves good amount of lacing around the edge of my glass.

S - Very pleasant smell. Balanced "hoppy" pine smell with a some orange and lime undertones. Has a bit of herbal smell. Kind of like a spicy mint, I'm assuming that's related to the mosaic hops used.

T - Not bad, not great. A little less hops taste than expected. Very smooth but a bit of a unpleasant aftertaste. Definitively a minty taste in here. Also incorporates some lime flavor.

M - For a "winter" beer feels incredibly light and airy in the mouth. If that's a good thing, I'm not really sure.

O - Ehhh, not the best offering from New Belgium by any stretch of the imagination. I much prefer the Imperial IPA or even Ranger. Pretty forgettable beer. Not bad but there are a wealth of better options out there.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy pale golden in color, resembling a Wit beer, with a massive, coarse white head, which retains very well. Abundant fine-beaded carbonation races to the surface, the lacing is thick and glass-coating.

Aroma: Spicy and peppery hop notes dominate the aroma, grassy notes hay, and a slight pine note are also present. There are also moderate orange and grapefruit hop aromas.

Taste: Opens with somewhat aggressive herbal hops, which seem quite fresh. Throughout the taste, the hops dominate, although the pale malt manages to offer an occasional flourish. The slightly higher ABV (6.2%) remains incognito. Finishes with a lingering spicy and grassy hop presence.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and quite full, pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A really nice example that is worthy of being served at Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's dinners.

Presentation: Packaged on a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager sensory glass.

Serving type: bottle
