UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Can: Completely opaque golden-amber with a sunburst center. Creamy, off-white head with decent retention on top. Light, spotty lacing. Dense floral aroma, peppery hops, Belgian yeast, clove, peppermint, overripe banana, a touch of tart pear, & some perfume pungency. Flavor is very hoppy, floral, & leafy. A touch of ashy hops with bubblegum & clove spice heavy from the yeast. Notes of coriander, phenols, banana, pears, grapefruit rind, & Candi sugar sneak in & lead into a bitter, earthy, yeast filled finish.

Pours a copper gold with a thin head that clings to my kuhnhenn tulip. Aroma of Belgian yeast and pepper. Taste follows nose with too much sweetness. Nice silky mouthfeel. Not great but nice to try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pineypower (3050) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Much thanks to...o man I forget his name now...o well. Pours out a cloudy straw color with a small off white head. Aroma is of some nice fruity yeast notes, some spices, pear, apple, light bubble gum and some bread crust. Taste is fruity Belgian yeast, apple, some spice notes, bubble gum, pear, some light bitterness in there and some mild notes of the alcohol. Lingering hard candy sweetness to it. Solid beer.

One of the raddest cans I’ve ever seen! Being a huge Maiden fan this was a must. Pours a lightly hazed deep gold with a frothy white head. Nose was dominated by citrus and fresh floral hops. Very Duvel-esk on the palate.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Can thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a cloudy yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of farmhouse, light citrus, faint toast, light wheat. Flavor is slightly different, a bit sweet, some fruit and must, pretty earthy with a light dirty bitter with a clean citrus. Mouthfeel is light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Not bad.
