blipp (6174) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Growler at Paul’s tasting. Shared by Dmac. Pours amber brown with an off white head. Nice citric and spicy hop aroma with some lighter belgian yeasty notes. The flavor has citric, almost piney hops, sweeter malts, belgian yeasty notes, and a moderately dry and bitter finish. Solid.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Growler from Dmac- Maple Shade, NJ location. Looks mostly clear medium amber with a nice lingering off white sticky head- good lace. Aroma is balanced between big fruity esters from the belg yeast, and also good big fruity citrusy american hops- simcoe, and centennial like- piny, tropical fruits, grapefruit, etc. Flavor is good caramel malt backbone, - clean light sweetness, some toffee, then Belgian yeasty phenols and esters, raisin mixed with big citrus and pine hops- clean yet somewhat abrasive tacky hoppy bitterness in the end. Pretty good.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Tap. Newark. Pours a clear gold body with a small white head. The nose is very fruity and spicy, smells like there might be some New Zealand hops in here. Clean pale malt and a light yeastiness as well. The flavor is just lightly bitter, the hops are very juicy and fruity and work really well with the pale malt and fruitiness from the Belgian yeast. Clean and crisp finish with some lingering light bitterness. Very nice beer.

TomDecapolis (4501) - Milton, Delaware, USA - NOV 30, 2007
On tap at the North Wales location. Pours a milky orange/brown with a smaller bubbly off white lightly lacing head. Not a good looking beer at all. Aroma of Belgian yeast and spice, mixed citrus notes, some floral and lots of Belgian yeast esters. Flavor was more of the Belgian yeast, almost covers up the hops a bit although I was getting some hop flavor. Mixed citrus and medium hop bitterness.

dmac (4091) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a clear deep sun burnt orange/copper body with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma of hoppy citrus uhm...hops, lemon zest, Belgian yeast and some old flowers. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a short lived aftertaste. Flavors of old flowers, lemons, yeast, citrus hops. Falvor on this one is better then the aroma and this is failry solid.
