Can share at Proof courtesy of Masterson. Head!!! Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with about half an inch of head just in a rocks glass. Head lasted extremely well. Great lacing. Thick white collar once the head did fade. Sweet grassy aroma with some clean earthy hops. Taste is similar with a touch of funk. Medium to high carbonation and medium body. Very enjoyable.

Canned: unk Pours a toasted almond meat hazed ale with a ring of soapy whites with some etched surface. Smells like apricot, white grapes, cracker, some nice sweet citrusy juice. Real awesome nose. Flavor follows through with a good fruity character, some more apricot, pineapple, apple juice, some grain, some nice refined and mature belgian yeast with a clay character. Medium on full bodied with moderately hi carb and a nice wet finish. Fucking A. Real delicious, if I could score this in the PNW, Iíd slam it while camping for sure.

Wow...surprised at the ratings on this one. This was shared by TPatuto, waiting in line for GTMW tickets, and it was the star of the show for me, in a lineup of pretty awesome beers. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Nose is skunky and fruity--kind of like Orval--with light herbal hops. Taste is fresh and hoppy, with a nice yeastiness, herbal and light grassiness, light skunk, and a touch of tropical fruit. Really nice mouthfeel on this one--smooth and a bit syrupy. Would love a sixer of this.

Was stoked to find this on the tap list at Plan B burger in Glastonbury, CT. Served in a nice thick Belgian style chalice. Just some notes I jotted down in my phone. A - Decent head that faded to lacing that lasted the entire beer. Fairly cloudy and a nice golden hue. S - Very typical of a Belgian style brew. Bread, yeast, and some light fruit towards the end. Theres also some noticeable alcohol and hops. T - Very bready and yeasty, with some fruits. Some banana, pineapple and apricots. Black pepper, lemon grass, and herbs/spices as well. Bitter and dry finish. Another high ABV beer, with almost no alcohol flavor. Really refreshing and the carbonation/mouth feel worked well. O - NEBCO knocked it out of the park with this one. I wish I could find cans in my area, but fresh on tap with a blue cheese burger made for an awesome lunch.

The beer is golden in color with an off white big head. It smells sweet and lightly spicy like a typical Belgian golden ale. The is almost some sweet vanilla flavor with a very smooth body, the spices arenít there like in the nose but the flavor of the Belgian golden yeast is delicious. Can is pretty cool too.

Thanks to a trade with jrob21! Pours a nice straw blonde with about three fingers of white head. Smell is mellow, yeasty, clove and honey, sweet. Taste is light clove, honey, belgium yeast. Very nice beer.

12oz can shared with mattyb83. Pours nice light, straw colored orange with not much of a head. Aroma of hay, grains, candied sugar (think rock candy!), grass, and some sort of fruit(apricots). A lot going on in the aroma. Really intense. Light and clean for a golden, the only thing lacking in the body is some carbonation. Wish there was a little more. Flavors of honey, apricots, sugar in the raw, and bready yeast with just a hair of grass. A very well made beer!

Can from Gianni! Thanks for these. Trying this side-by-side with the chardonneighbor of the beast. Hazy, golden honey in color with a small white head. Loads of honey, floral notes, apricot, candy sugar. Intense. Love it. Taste is fruity with more apricot and candy sugar, maybe a touch of honey, some pepper and cardamom. Not overly rich, nice full body, delicious. Best belgian style beer that comes from a can that Iíve ever had. Wow! Iím excited to see what the chardonneighbor is like.

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 a hazy golden with a thick eggshell head that settles to a film and a thick ring with substantial hanging fluffy lace. Nose involves sweet bread dough, clove spice, light banana, citrus fruit. Decently sweet, fairly bitter, with some tartness. Full bodied, softer carb, bright with citrus, finishing fairly dry and tart. Nice brew, drinkable yet displaying fair complexity. Perhaps the exact opposite of what youíd expect from a satanic beer.
