Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Cloudy orange with a white head. Spicy citrus and yeast aromas. Good flavors of fruity esters and Belgian yeasts. A little sweetness rounds it out, but it finishes a bit dry and sour.

Price: $1.67 (I think) Purchased: July 26, 2014 Consumed: July 28, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a honey, golden hazy color with 1-to-2 fingers of off-white head that went away quickly. Minimal lacing on the sides of the glass. Minimal retention on the top. Smelled Belgian spices, kiwi, apple, grape, banana, cloves, cinnamon, slight wintry whiff, peppery spices and caramel. Tasted pretty close to the nose with caramel, kiwi, Belgian spices, apple, green grapes, cloves, banana, slight peppery spices, cinnamon and still that wintry mix. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, fruity finish. A pretty good Belgian beer overall.

Ernesto987 (3664) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2014
sample, too much booze in this one, lots of yeast flavors and a ton of malts, no real finesse or drinkablity

On tap at Carolina ale house at RDU. Clear golden with thin white cap. Aroma is fruity, banana, clove and yeast. Similar taste; very sweet, no real bitterness to balance. Slick mouthfeel. Decent Belgian, but sweeter than I prefer.

penguinfinity (103) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear, golden yellow, with no head, just a little lacing. Smells sweet. Taste is sweet, a little sour, like fruit candy. A lot of flavors going on at once, not bitter at all. Will definitely buy again.
