4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This brew poured up a clear, dark copper colored body with a creamy off-white colored head with good retention and amazing lazing. Aromas of peppery spices, dark fruits (plums, raisins), and bread dough. Flavors of caramel, toasted malts, and a light hint of citrusy hops. Medium-bodied with a crisp, refreshing finish with a nice caramel flavor lingering about.

Great easy drinking beer, particularly for the summer. Nice full body and lots of sweet flavor sort of like a cider. I doubt I would drink this year round, but its perfect on a hot day. My girlfriend loves this beer as well, probably because its so fruity.

On tap, this comes out a lovely honey-golden color with a nice head. Aroma has fruity hints. Excellent flavor provides undertones of fruitiness, and is hoppy but not bitter though it has a bit of a nip. This ale is very smooth and a pleasure to drink.

From a 12 ounce bottle purchased at "Keller’s IGA" - smelled like fermenting gim-shi, tastes wonderful (but not a lot of deepth). A damn good beer.

Copper color, small head and medium flow of bubbles. Honey infuzed aroma mixed with cherry, ending in a bready wheat. Medium mouthfeel leaning towards the heavy side for this style but definitely refreshing. A buttery flavor that favors the lightly toasted malt. Just enought hops to balance. A satisfying change from the world of overly bitters and watery pales.

Great tasting beer. Does not remind me of a Belgian. Reminds me of an APA. It is a good idea to drink this beer. It is satisfying.

Nice clear golden brown color. Two finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.
Spicy citrus notes are all but overpowered by bubblegum scents. A tiny bit of malt pokes through.
A small bit of spice notes right up front give way to the bubblegum/citrus flavor combo and are then followed by a light hoppy bite at the end.
Nice and creamy with a great carbonation level.
Could be a good session beer. I would have a problem with the hoppy bite it has, but could probably get around it, as it is minimal.

This beer deserves a much higher rating than it currently has. 12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Still very fresh though. Poured out a hazy orangish copper color, with a thick, sticky tan colored head. Aromas are of a classic Belgian pale ale. Fruity, dense, aromatic. Mouthfeel is thick & rich. Flavors are of fruity bubblegum, slight hops bite mix well with the malts. A more than decent take on the Belgian style.

Truly good beer for good people. Amber with a light head. Sweet bread and caramel on the nose. Medium bodied candied malt flavor with caramel and lightly hopped for balance. I love this with a three cheese tomato pizza.
