Rolle Bolle

Hot day today! Decided to check out New Belgium's Rolle Bolle, their summer seasonal brewed with soursop and monkfruit. The beer is named after a lawn game played in Belgium, and there is an illustration of it on the label. Best Before 20OCT13. 5.5% Alcohol.

Grassy, lemony aroma, very bright with a touch of sour zing. Similar flavors. Lemony and grassy to start with a little initial bitterness and tartness. A juicy and fruity sweet balance comes next. So far so good. However, there is this persistent earthy, herbal flavor in the background that tastes funny and lingers on the palate afterward. I didn't like that. Thin body but refreshing. OK flavors. Something seemed off. I'd pick something else.
