3.75/5 rDev +12.6%
Appearance: Hazy medium golden, with a modest off-white head, merely a scattering of foam on the surface, and thin, scattered lacing.
Aroma: Lightly toasted, fresh wheat bread slathered with tropical fruit jam.
Taste: Opens with prominent tropical fruit, as the taste progresses, the sturdy wheat malt backbone is prominent. Later in the taste, grassy hops dominate. Finishes with a lingering, slightly earthy bitterness.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, with champagne-like carbonation.
Drinkability/notes: An intriguing departure from a classic style.
Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

4.03/5 rDev +21%
A: Pours a hazy straw color with a white head.
S: Orange, citrus peel, pine, passionfruit and papaya in the nose.
T: Taste is similar with orange peel, fresh orange, wheat, passionfruit and papaya. Tropical fruit is not as present as I'd like.
M: Medium bodied and somewhat smooth.
O: As I mentioned, I'd rather there was more tropical fruit flavor, but I'm glad it's there. Recommended, and definitely worth a try.
