Brew Review-New Belgium 2° Below

My second New Belgium beer is the 2° Below, NBB’s winter beer. 

This one surprised me a bit.  Considering it’s their winter beer, I was expecting it to be dark.  However, it pours a clear golden bronze color.

The aroma is sweet and malty with a cinnamon-like spiciness and a slightly grassy scent.  The flavor is spicy with a bit of caramel.  There’s a floral hoppiness in the mix with a slightly bitter, lightly boozy finish.

Definitely not what I would expect from a winter beer, but still a good beer.
