COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with 100% Organic ingredients, this golden elixir has a strikingly fruity and honeyed aroma. The palette is spicier than the aroma shows yet the fruitiness won't be outdone. This beer finishes long and dry with a wonderfully complex character. This beer is served very cold, we recommend letting it warm slightly to bring out its complexity!

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 Had a small sample of this one from JW77 at the CCB BA Bolita release party. Pours a hazy straw yellow to light golden color with thin white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of ripe fresh fruit, yeast, some light candy sugar, light caramel, some hints of spice. Flavor is sweet and floral with notes of candy sugar, light banana and floral hops, honey, light caramel, and hints of bread. Generally medium body with a pleasing floral finish.

markwise (4425) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2009 Thanks to JW77 for opening a bottle at the CCB Bolita Release. Pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Nose is vinegar, sugary sweetness, yeast, pepper, and some light fruit. Flavor is enjoyable Belgian-style pale: some tartness, hops, yeast, pepper, and a balanced fermented honeyed flavor. Enjoyable beer overall.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 22, 2009
On tap, at brewery. Pours a hazy dark gold body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is very fruity with lots of pale maltiness, light perfumy hops. Nice yeasty and bready malt flavor with some light perfumy hops. Noticable but not overpowering alcohol. Lingering spicy and yeasty finish. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with gentle light carbonation. Overall a pretty nice beer, very solid.

On draft at Capones. Pours a cloudy light caramel with a medium frosty off white head. Aroma of light fruit, honey, yeast and dry hops. Light fruity taste with hints of honey, spice, yeast and dry hops.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. My first Bullfrog, and it’s a treat! Lovely pour, like cider but with a frothy carbonation. The nose is sweet and yeasty, like a Belgian blonde with some candied malts. Body is pretty hefty, and dangerously drinkable. Tropical fruits come in as you get further into the brew, with some straw and yeast in the dry-ish finish. Very nice.

Beerdedone (2584) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange/amber with a big fizzy off-white head. Aroma was fruity with citrus, yeast, light caramel, and some spicyness. Flavor is similar to aroma with a light to medium body and is heavily carbonated with a funky tartness.

auerbrau (3152) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 4, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Crispy apple-crust and cracker aroma, heavy with a spritz of lemon zest and some air freshener. The yeast may be coming on a little heavy. Clear, tall-white-headed golden pour. Flavor is okay, but washes out and gets a little tannic and biting. This is served overly warm. I want more chewy malt and more juicy yeast character, but it gets a little minerally and metallic too soon. Lots of pilsener malt character, but not enough balance. Alcohol gets a touch bristly. Otherwise, this is a fine golden, but it might behave better at 60% the gravity. Needs softness.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 3, 2009
On Draft at the BF Brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow body with small white head. The aroma is very pleasing - some fruit, malt, spice, and sugar. The taste is a treat. Great Belgian ale.
