Poured a very average slightly cloudy yellow with a thick head. Really, really average beer all said. No spice at all.

cmonster (979) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottled. Pours watery orange with a large white head of tight bubbles. Easy 4 on appearance. Good retention and lace. Nose is feathery yeast, and noteably dry. Light sweet flavor of dried grass. Tastes just like the aroma. Light body, prickly carbonation, and a dry finish. Minimal sweetness throughout. Good but lacking complexity and the yeast isn’t that compelling.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle from Jennifer Gottlieb, the cutest woman on the planet. Pours a dense, thick cheddar orange with a freakin’ huge head of white. Aroma is field hay, barn must, and light flower bread. Flavor is buttery hay and berry wth subtle straw and musty grass notes. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Better than average, yes, but not spectacular.

Gold with a white head. Nose is sweet dried fruits, musk, clove, and other spices. Smooth on the palate, great dried fruits, belgian yeast, candied sugar, and a spiced finish.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle:   Hazy straw, lively carbonation, large sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Pale bready nose, slightly yeasty, some pale fruit, perhaps a little tropical as well.   Fruity on the tongue, not too sweet, rather spritzy.   Fairly yeasty and bready on the tongue as well.   Not too heavy, yet thick enough to provide a mouthfeel thats above average.   A little alcohol is noticeable on the exit.   Doesn’t seem to have that fruitiy or musty aspect that most Belgians have, instead its your distict Americanized bready/yeasty style of Belgian.   It is fairly clean tho.   Nothing to write home about, but still enjoyable for what it is.   Thanks Dallas for the bottle!
