Murrow (87) - 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.

Very nice light fruity smell, taste is a little more bitter and bold than a blue moon...more coriander perhaps? Not great and degrades a bit with time ..can?t place it...just a bit funky..think too much corriander...John says finishes with hay...I agree!

Hmm this one smelled really good but went downhill from there. On draft, poured an average slightly hazy yellow. Had a fresh yeasty and tropical fruit aroma, classic fruity Belgian ale characteristics. Taste was clove, sweet candy yeast, some wheat, perhaps some caramel malt, however there was also a prominent boozy finish; the exceptionally high ABV for the style was very obvious. Mouthfeel went from exceedingly carbonated at first to very flat, with a boozy tang throughout. Other than the unpleasant alcohol notes, was an enjoyable sweet Belgian style ale, maybe I'll give this a second chance another day.

12 oz bottle. (Food Lion) Boone, NC.
Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Belgian style yeast, malt, spices and some fruitiness in the aroma. The flavour is yeast, mild fruity hops, malt, spices and some alcohol. Passable.
