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.

Old rating. Yellow Amber colored. Belgian yeast, spice, cereal grain, out of balance and a little medicinal. Pass.

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.

sample, too much booze in this one, lots of yeast flavors and a ton of malts, no real finesse or drinkablity
