HeadyDE (478) - Delaware, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Can pour..medium orange color into tulip..small white head sits atop..nose is quite nice solid Belgian character with the yeast..candi sugar....ripe bananas..spice heavy clove..surprisingly light to medium mouthfeel..palate is not identical to nose yet maintains the belgian aromatics with an american angle..very tasty offering that is a good American version of a Belgian strong ale..full lacing all the way around..pretty impressed with NBC and happy to hear they are going to expand to a larger site..kudos for a well made Belgian ale in a can..little to no trace of the abv on sip and finish but this does provide some warmth without being overpowering..well crafted..

Pours foggy golden with a moderate white top. Aroma is belgian yeast with great sweetness from the malt. Taste is a nice balance of chewy mouthfeel and yeast with wheaty malt.

DocLock (7729) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Can shared at Craft Ale. Pours turbid gold with floral, spicy, funky, hoppy, white pepper notes in the olfactory and papillarae senses. Finishes complex, and we pegged it as similar to a Bier de Garde. Tasty and thanks for the share, Brooke.

Draft at the brewery. Pours hazy hold with a thin creamy head. Tastes bready, like wheat, nuts, tobacco, and alcohol. Light body and medium carbonation. Smells musky.

BrianBeerGod (9) - Niagara Falls, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2013 does not count
Poured a nice hazy gold, with a nice foamy head. Didnít have the normal feel associated with a Belgian that Iím used to (which for me was a good thing). But, I will tell you one thing. I drank this on a particularly hot day... and I think I may have found my new summer beer. Summer beers are usually super light (Pilsners/Golden ales) and just lack flavor and complexity. This beer, while not, and would never be labeled a summer beer has all of the flavors and complexities that I love during the hot summer days. Itís refreshing, not too heavy (even for 8.5%), is easy to drink, and has an incredible flavor.

blankboy (5957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2013
Can [12oz]. Pours a hazy gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of light grassy hops, herbs, yeast, light candi sugar and light spices. Sweet, slightly overly so, yeasty flavour along with herbs, grassy hops, bready malt and light spices. Gets slightly less sweet as it warms a bit. Average bodied. I found this just O.K. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
