750ml bottle from hopdog, thanks Steve, this was another big hit at my tasting. Rating #53. Orangish pour, kind of glowed, with a pretty good white head to it. Had that distinct belgian yeast aroma to it. Kind of hoppy, and very spicy with a little heat in the end, Jersey Joe sure loved it and so did I. ꀡ)

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2010 Orange citrus nose with a stong American hop presence. Pours hazy golden orange hue with light white head...nice lacing. Light orange taste blending to an orange peel hop bite with a hoppy balance and slight belgian yeast finish. Very refreshing.

As soon as I saw this, I had an urge to do some drunk driving, so, y’know, MADD was sure right about this one...Orange, thin ring of foam. Nice spicy aroma. Flavor has touches of melon. Nice beer, but lacks a real "wow’ factor. Sampled at lithy’s Septemberfest.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled at Lithy’s Septemberfest Tasting. Clear golden pour with quick fading near white head. Nose is slightly funky, like a sweaty tshirt, and candi sugar. Flavor is also funky, and sweet but with a bitter wheaty quality. Obvious yeasty finish. Don’t really care for this at all.

Bottle. Pours murky golden with a powerful head. Aroma is of citrus and small hints of spice. Flavor is mild, yet satisfying, with a medium body and a sturdy finish. A hometown legend’s tribute to the greatness of New Jersey and beer.

Bottle Pours a hazy golden with a big white head. The head is frothy and last well. The lacing is lacking for such a nice head. Has a nice sweet aroma of citrus, coriander and fruits. Has a decent carbonation. The flavor is on the lighter side but good. Good blending. Decent spicies and a good sweetness. Has a light to medium body. The texture is good and not to dry. A solid finish with a good aftertaste.
