look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle at 41 F poured into a tulip. 015 14 C2 0735 or 012414C17:18 is the bottle code.

Pours cloudy, pale yellow, small white head, dissipates slowly. Lots of fine carbonation. Smell is Belgian fruity with a nice crisp hoppy character. Some banana.

Taste is mild Belgian wit, bananas, citrus, some piney bitterness.

Mouthfeel is effervescent, but not very notable. Overall, pretty good.

Swirled up the dregs in the bottom of the bottle, so the pour into my Sam Adams lager glass was a hazy bright yellow with rocky white head that persisted. Smells of orange, coriander, grapefruit and wheat. Very bright and citrus like. Tastes orange like and citrus forward. Soft hop flavors that scream summertime like citrus, orange, pineapple, melon, etc. light and easy drinking. Soft bitterness that plays nicely with citrus and seemingly acidic fruit notes.

I first tried this in late winter/early spring and did not like it. Now that it's Memorial Day and temps have started hitting the high 80's, I'm really starting to dig this. Refreshing on a hot day, it certainly quenches my thirst. Now I had only wished I had the others left from the 4-way IPA case.

12 ounce bottle -> New Belgium globe glass

A - light gold. slightly cloudy with a big two inch foamy head. Retention is pretty good, and lacing is above average.

S- Lemon is the dominant note with floral and earthy notes as well.

T - Very citrus forward with a sweetness that is fresh oranges and a big lemony presence. The finish is dry with a mild bitterness.

M - average carbonation, not much of an aftertaste

O - easy to drink, fairly tasty.
