closey22 (1119) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Hazy orange amber no head; very sweet aroma hinting of caramel ; flavor is rich malt blended with Belgian sugars, yeastiness, hoppy dryness ; feels medium with nice foamy fizz; finishes dry yet sweet.

Jado (634) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2015
From 355 ml can. Pours a clear bronze colour with a small, creamy white head. Aromas of biscuits, apple pie, citrus, flowers and nutmeg. Taste starts out with sweet malt before a fairly gentle pine and lemon bitterness washes in. Some alcohol present as well. Banana, apple, cinnamon and pepper emerge at the end. Lightly fruity aftertaste. Enjoyed this.

Can... Poured clear amber with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of grassy hops with some yeast esters and spicing. Some bitterness with esrthy, resinous hops mixed with fruity underlay sod the Belgian-esq yeast notes. Easy drinking and balanced.

On tap at Taproom on 19th. Pours a clear orange copper with medium creamy beige head that lasts. The aroma is yeast and fruity malt. Medium mouth, light bitterness, bready malt, yeast, good.

Resin, caramel, swamp I smell. Flavors leads with resin, that fresh hop green-ness, alcohol. Quick, clingy off white head on yellow orange clear. Itís that funk of aroma and flavor combining, hops matching with Belgian yeast.

can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, one-finger white head, bands of lace. Doesnít look at all like a Belgian, but, none-the-less, it does look good. Taste is malt with light Belgian Ale spice. It moves neatly through the palate to a mildly hopped finish that turns to unsweetened tea at the end. An interesting brew that somehow works.

johnnnniee (2730) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Tall slim can from Bertís Deep amber color with a good sized white head with moderate staying power. The aroma hits me as spicy floral yeasty a bit hoppy and hints of cardboard. The flavor is sweet bready honey like maltiness with a solid hit of raisiny dark fruits and some amped up resiny hop flavor and bitterness. Hints of cardboard again in flavor. Its kind of a weird beer, not traditional Belgian in any sense but has hints of the inspiration in there. I thought some of the flavors clashed a little, and I could have done without the oxidation.

cheap (4480) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2015
My can says 8%, go figger. From the start this has a sweet aroma that transfers to a near cloying sweet taste. Volatile to the olfactory. Doesnít look bad but it is somewhat viscous on the palate. Does not hide alky well. No way is this a Belgian, heheh. Its really a strong Belgian if it is beldgy at all. Most of the sixpoint beers Iíve had have an in yer face attitude, and this does as well.

TheHopster (899) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2015
(can) One of the weaker offerings from this brewer. Neither traditionally Belgian in flavor nor a session ale (at 8% ABV).

First if all: "session ale" my ass, this is 8%. Carrot orange color, with the consistency of honey. Finger of thick head. The aroma is perfumey flower petals. There is some hay. There is an unusual metallic component that doesnít detract but doesnít really add either. The flavor is sugarplums and prickly spice. There is a touch of citrus, but it is slight. Mostly when it warms up a touch of Belgian yeast kicks in, but just a touch. There is more Gritty, sandpapery palate. Itís a very solid, earthy beer. The sugars are more of an accent than a core flavor.

deyholla (7712) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2015
Can. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice light sweet grain note with a hint of flora and some Belgian yeast. Flavor has a good amount of light sweet grain with a bit of citrus, some flora and a light Belgian yeast note.
