Centuries ago the Trappist Monks of Belgium and the Netherlands introduced this flavorful style of beer to the world and they have been brewing it ever since. By incorporating authentic Belgian malts and yeast and adding a subtle touch of coriander and orange peel we have created a malty amber brew true to style that starts smooth with a heavenly finish Ė itís a sin not to try it.

Keg at the brewpub. Hazy copper, thin creamy tan head. Good retention. Aroma of banana, caramel, floral and herbal hops, mild spice. The taste is banana, toasted malt, caramel, spice, yeast. Medium bodied, high carbonation, dry finish, mild booze.

Soft amber copper pour with one finger of sandy tan head. Rich fruity nose with some toasted grain and pear/apple. Hints of alcohol come through. Very light acidity and heat. Medium full body and prickly heat.

TURDFERGUSON (4037) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a medium to thin brown with a small fast fading white spitty head. Nose is spiced apples, raisins, Belgian candi sugar. Flavor is toasted malt, fruity, light spice. Medium to thin palate. Glad I finally caught the funk on tap! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Draught at the brew pub. Served in a small snifter. Clear mahogany color without any head or lacing. Malty, brown sugar nose with a hint of alcohol, bubblegum and yeast. The alcohol comes out again in the flavor. Maybe they bumped up the content becuase you can really feel it creep into your tongue and palate. Brown sugar and dried fruit flavors are also there. Carbonation is a bit greater than your average beer, as expected for this style.

DocLock (9365) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
Pours deep copper/ruby, with aroma of big fruit, hops, malt. Tastes fruity, with finishing hops and malt. Complex taste and finish, with cherry/berry elements. Itís a damn shame that NC beers canít exceed 6%. This one could have been world class with more body and alcohol. It is still excellent.

Nice red color, under a good head. Nothing spectacular. Very spicy in the aftertaste, but malt dominated flavor. Not very sure what king of beer this is trying to be. Definitely worth trying, though.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Dark, rubyish red color... with a lush, beige head that simmers down swiftly, leaving a little lagoon of bubbles around one edge. Aroma is sweetly spicy, loaded with fruit, citrus and cherries, reminds me of something, but I canít think what...an interesting air in this... Nice heat on the tongue, good spiciness, great flavor, and smooth on the way out. Feels like a bit of a witbier, with a bit of abbey dubbel tossed in. Iíd say it was a dunkel weizen, if it wasnít for the extra spiciness, coriander, cinnamon, a hint of ginger, continuto deliver. Medium bodied, with a mild, but tasty, medium finish.
