New Belgium has reached MI, found at meijers for 2.85 for a 22oz bottle.

paired with peanut m&m's

A&S: Very lively looking straw colored transparent beer. with a white fuzzy head that dies quickly to a constant state of covering the top. faint banana and coriander scents not a whole lot going on, a little disappointed. hints of yeast and bubblegum.

T&M: Not very desrcript. Not super powerful as far a alcohol contain goes. Buttery, bananas, not very spicy. Medium body medium to high carbonation.

Overall: Although my rating of this beer doesn't particularly reflect what im about to say I do have to say it was a good beer for the price and taste just not a good representation of the style overall. I would recommend this beer as something to just drink and enjoy for a good price.

A: Half a finger of head, lots of carbonation with a clear golden yellow colour. The head is diminishing quite quickly. There is an off-white rim collecting around the edge of the glass.

S: It has a fresh grass smell, dirt, cinnamon and apples, cider and some floral notes.

T: It doesn't taste at all the way it smells. The alcohol isn't overpowering and I can barely taste it, which is interesting considering that it's a 7.8% beer. It has a spicy flavour and tastes of orange peel as well. I'm not sure if it's coriander that I'm tasting but there is definitely a lot of spice to this beer.

M: It passes over the front of your tongue and sits in the back of your mouth. Lots of carbonation and light to medium bodied. It's a little strange because it feels very sticky in your mouth after you swallow it, which I'm not a fan of... my tongue keeps sticking to the roof of my mouth afterwards so it is a little unpleasant.

O: Personally, I don't know if I like the spiciness of this beer or the sticky feeling it leaves in your mouth following drinking it.. but I can see others liking it. It definitely has a complex mouthfeel to it though. Interesting to note is that it leaves no lacing whatsoever.
