2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Fantastic bottle design that had my hopes up for this local brewery that I keep wanting to find something good from. This guy pours a simple golden color with only a touch of haze and a standard half inch foamy head. The nose is hard to find, but I guess thereís a bit of lemon...barely. At first the taste is a decent, watered down Belgian flavor with some bread, sourness, and a bit of bitterness, but then just moments after swallowing...damnit. There goes this one. A very unpleasant sourness bites me in the back of the tongue. I kinda wish I didnít buy a 6-pack of this stuff, but at least it has 2 things going for it...itís fairly mild and is 7% alcohol. This will be my last purchase of this, and although I want to love this brewery, theyíre not doing so well by me so far.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from emacgee. Dry and spicy yeast initially on the nose. Light fruity esters. Mine and cilantro. Fairly straightforward but inoffensive. Pours cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Dry and zesty yeast on the tongue. A touch of coconut and pineapple. Dry, leafy hops. Orange . Nice carbonation. Medium bodied with a lengthy finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle...extremely pale, clear, not cloudy, and light orange in color. Not too sweet either. A lot like Golden Monkey but not as strong or sweet, quite refreshing actually. Flavors of orange and a spice of some sort. Clean, light finish with little aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle via trade with TURDFERGUSON - Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a 1/2 finger thick white head. Aroma is grain, esters, light spice, herbal hops, and light yeast. Flavor is sweet malt, esters, and spice. Light to medium body. Flavor lingers on the palate a bit. A decent beer. Thanks Sam.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice traditional Belgian style aroma thatís definitely the high point of this beer. Slightly fruity and floral and maybe a bit grassy. Notes of lemon or some sort of citrus. A little thin on the palate and finishes with a funky tartness. Not bad, not fantastic, but at least itís pretty cheap.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma was nicely spicy with a bit of pepper and clove and a Belgian yeast complexity. The aroma had a hop note which was earthy and just a bit grassy. The beer poured into the glass crystal clear golden with a very low white head which disappeared in an instant and did not lace the glass. The flavor was nicely spicy with pepper and a bit of clove and with a nice level of bittering which was earthy and a bit spicy and grassy. The flavor had a bit of caramel and an impression of candy. The finish was dry with lasting spice well into the aftertaste and beyond. The body was medium with a fairly low level of carbonation. No appreciable alcohol was notable, but the beer could certainly do with a carbonation boost. 12 ounce bottle. Bottled in D 07.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Sadlack’s near NCSU in Raleigh. I actually mistook this beer for a new version of the Edenton Helles Angel. Orange-yellow, small white head (hard to say what the head would be...plastic cup and all). Aroma was slightly yeasty and a little citrus-orange peel. Flavor was yeasty, with a taste of muscadine grapes and a decent bit of sweetness. Good beer, and I will drink it again... and again ...etc...

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A strange note of hominy that upsets the balance and drives down the ratings of what could be a fair brew.
