COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This style originated in Belgium to compete with the pilsners from Czechoslovakia, Germany, and Poland. It is a fruity ale with very strong carbonation, with complex, spicy flavors like cloves.

Sampled at twin peaks, concord, nc slightly cloudy straw colored pour. Minimal head. Kind of sweet and smooth. Good example of the class from a local in the south. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good label; faint mist in a straw gold beer. Dry, yeasty aroma with some sulphur. Light, savory, a little pepper, not fruity. A little citrus in the lightly bitter end. Crisp, summery. Thanks, LuckyDog.

Cloudy orange yellow with white head. Hoppy corriander nose. Sweet hoppy spiced taste. I like it.

12 ounce single bottle from Food Lion in Huntersville, NC. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with no head and minimal white lacing. Aroma is coriander and yeast notes. The Palate is medium-to-full bodied, round, and mouth-filling, but with nice malts. Not bad, but nothing special.

OldGrowth (2649) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pint at Doherty’s Irish pub in Cary. Ok aroma, sweet, yeasty. Light toasted malt, little orange, banana. Clove. Clean golden orange color. Good that faded to a foam top. Spotty lace. Sweet flavor. Lighter body, smooth mouthfeel , sweet finish. It’s fine, not gonna wow, but drinks easy enough.

Murrow (69) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottled. Pours a cloudy pale gold. Mild but sharp floral aroma, with hints of ripe apple. Lots of fruit up front: pear, red apple, grape. Flavor holds as some hop bitterness develops, finishing with tart green apple, slightly dry, little alcohol sensation. Silky mouthfeel, light to medium bodied. Very tasty, fruity little beer without an overwhelming amount of wild yeast. Quite pleased with this one.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Hazy, amber/orange appearance with a small off white head and light lacing. Aroma is yeasty, candied sugar and sweet malts. Despite the sweet, tropical fruit flavors, some spicy hops hit midway through, before reverting to the sweetness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a decent alcohol kick.

I don’t particularly care for the smell on this one, as it reminds me a little of bad cheese. The taste isn’t bad; it’s a little sweet and goes down easily.

Originally reviewed: 7/11/09. Had this on tap at a Brixx Pizza near Lake Norman. Came out a murky gold with a thin white head on top. No lacing at all. Smells of bananas, spices, yeast, and bread. The mouth is crisp and firm. Great feel. Flavor is pretty tame, but I like it. Big Belgian yeast smack that finishes slightly fruity and sour. This is pretty well done. I’m not the best expert on BPAs, but I liked this one.
