I decided to be a dork and save this one for my 668th rating. I love the artwork on this can, it’s pretty funny. Poured a cloudy golden color with a white head. Aroma is sweet fruity malt with some citrus. Bubbly feel in mouth. Caramel malt start with light fruity flavors of dried apricots, golden raisins and citrus. Candy sugar flavors in the middle with some spicy yeast flavors. A very light clove flavor and aroma come out as this one warms up. There Is a nice warming alcohol presence in this one. Crisp citrus and yeast finish.

Can pours an orange yellow with white fizz. The aroma is musty Belgian pils, golden malts sweetness with a Belgian flair. The flavor is similar with tripelish character in a big golden ale. Nice musty green grape and white plum earthiness, slightly grassy hops, really nice malts. The lingering flavors don’t change much but the moderate carbonation makes it slightly creamy with a tingle on the palate making the sweet maltier finish very smooth. Really solid brew.

Can shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy, pale yellow-gold with a small white head. The aroma is very malty - crackers, bread, pale, cereal, sourdough - with straw and pears. Flavor of sweet cereal and bready malts, dried apricot, golden raisins, pear, and vanilla. A hint of pepper. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Good, malty Belgian. Like a tripel.

12oz can... Thanks to Mike L. for this one! Shared with caterwaul and phaleslu. Hazy orange golden color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Some good pear, vanilla flavors. Moderate sweet taste. Very lightly spicy. Some moderate bitterness. Interesting, unusual stuff. Solid, interesting belgian strong! Stange, unusual.. But better than expected. Looking at the can, I see that it’s brewed with some pilsner malts, and I see that now.. Works well. A nice light pepperiness to it.

Poured from a can into a tulip: Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon grass, funk pepper, and slight orange. Taste is Belgian yeast, barnyard, pepper and lemons. Light body, decent carbonation. It’s pretty good for a white.

Slubgob (297) - West Hartford, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Can into tall goblet. Hazy golden yellow, sticky white lacing. Barnyard funk mixed with tropical fruit in the nose. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Mix of yeast and banana note, occasional super note.finishes unexpectedly astringent which did at least course some of the body’s stickiness.
