Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass.
A 1" white head drops quickly with some lacing left behind. Color is golden yellow with tons of streaming carbonation. Aroma of brett yeast, white bread and citrus. Mouthfeel is light & frothy with an extremely dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, brett yeast, and lemony citrus. Very nice ale.

Poured from a bomber, hazy with a huge head. AC Golden is capable of brewing excellent beer, but this one is mediocre in my opinion. "Colorado Native", as far as quality, so what?

First off I'm excited to try a beer that is only made of colorado ingredients. Even poured carefully it gives a ton of dense white bubbly head. I can smell wheat and Belgian yeast. The color is cloudy and yellow. The taste is light and refreshing with a hint of Belgian yeast and a little sweetness from it. Pretty good beer especially considering I don't care for Belgian yeast or wheat beer.

wow! i am so surprised how good this is, i cant believe it. its easily the best beer in the native series, not even close, even beats the double ipl. never expected it to be so nice, on tap at buffalo rose in golden, a real nice slice of culture there. its a pale hazy beer with a short white head on it, but plenty of vigorous carbonation and a great nose. a mix of french saison yeast and something a little more belgian i smell right away, white grape, white pepper, even lemongrass in there, clean and attractive. the taste is just as good, a very light white wheat malt base has some flavor but minimal body, and the beer is remarkably well hopped. european grassy flavors meet american citrus and bitterness in the finish, with the yeasts drying it right down close to zero. the evolution and depth here are fantastic. i could session these all day at this low abv too, i think a perfect late summer addition to this lineup. its great to know coors is capable of something like this, sometimes we forget these guys were brewers once, and potentially still have it in them. this is frankly way too good to have come from them, really great craft saison, relevant and delicious. cant wait to see what others think.
