Headbanger (3536) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2015
12oz bottle 7/4/15 (Courtesy of TerryR)-40° in Tumbler-Pours orange with a small off white head. Aroma of toffee, dark fruit, and malt. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but was expecting more.

Bif (1693) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2015
On tap. Served a dark copper color with fair head and nominal lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, bit of malt and caramel. Taste of dark fruit, bit of malt sweetness and brown sugar. Decent bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body and a bit sugary. Had hoped for something more robust.

thegreenrooster (3533) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Pour is a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is some dark bread and a bit of toffee. Flavor is kind of bready and dry with a sweet brown sugar toward the end. Not bad but not exciting either.

swillguzzler99 (148) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2015
From a 12 ounce bottle. pours copper with nice carbonation and slight head. Nose is of candied sugar and hops, almost soapy. Muted taste finishing slightly acrid with good mouth feel. This is a beer you would need pepcid with if you drank too many. Slightly disappointing for being labeled a Belgian ale.

Beer #77 of NM 100. Banana and biscuits, in a surprisingly decent combination. Nicely dry.

jandd1983 (3160) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2014
It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of yeast, toffee and brown sugar. The taste was of wheat and malts with a little bread and a light dry spiciness. Ok.

malrubius (2096) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Hazy copper golden with lasting head and a little lace. Bready spicy aroma. Medium fruity sweet peach caramel with mild spicy hop finish and not too much cloy. Medium body. Pretty much what I expect from an unspectacular version of the style. Not bad.

monk191 (1277) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2014
A fine belgian, a bit boring though. Pours a clear orange. Smells and tastes belgian, but not much else. Smooth but Unmemorable. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

jrodooo5 (1236) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Decent brownish pour w/ a thin white head & lacing. The aroma is malty & somewhat sweet. The taste is similar. There’s not exactly a flavor explosion but is clean & smooth. It’s drinkable but not all that special!

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
12oz bottle - Aroma - light peppery spices, orange peels, toasted bread and light caramel Appearance - hazy reddish amber, weird uneven off-white head, kinda lumpy looking really, average retention and no lacing. Mouthfeel - light bodied, medium carbonation, kinda prickly Flavor - cloves, peppery, doughy, light sweetness with a spicy finish. Overall - nice spice level in the aroma and flavors, easy to drink and balanced nicely.
