Lurking bottle in fridge. Hazy yellow with thick billowing head. sticky sparse lacing remains after settle and a few quaffs. Nose of sugar and yeast on light malt. Upfront mellow yeast opens to hop tingle and then malt. light hop finish over slight butter body. Yum...

Drjohnrock (549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle from mix six pack purchased from Delhi Walgreens. Cloudy gold color, mostly sweet fruity aroma with some piney hops and yeast, interesting bittersweet flavor thatís like a cross between an IPA and a wit or saison. Very interesting brew.

Persistent head is correct, long lasting lace. Nice cloudy appearance from yeast, a bit light in yellow color from expectations. Strong banana yeasty smell. Ok, mild taste stays in mouth. A typical Belgian IPA, but just ok overall for style. Would like a bit more mouthfeel.

Bottle. Found this in the back of the fridge recently. Pretty much exactly what youíd expect. Belgian yeast and spice, light and wheaty and hoppy. Good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5521) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2014 Sampled on draft at Dadís Pub this beer poured a dark golden color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was malty and bready and a bit dry with notes of perfume and floral hops. The flavor was malty and bready with perfume and floral hops. Medium length finish. Not much of a Belgian presence. The alcohol was well contained. Moderately full bodied.

(bottle - 12 oz) Gold pour with a fizzy head. Spicy hop aroma with lots of yeast and peppery floral notes. Spicy hop flavor as well. Belgian yeast isnít too overpowering but enhances the spicy note of the hops.

From a bottle this beer smells slightly sweet. First taste is cutting astringent citrusy sinbad. As session continues it gets more like very green grapefruit rinds. Yes, piercing back of throat thing happens fer a while. Real mouth coating happy BS.
