AWMiller (512) - Mansfield, Texas, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Truly one of the finest offerings one can partake of from Squatters!! This brew poured up a cloudy light-golden colored body with a meringue-like head with awesome retention and lacing effects. Aromas full of pear, cloves, banana, and peppery spices. Flavors are intense and very well-balanced with the addition of lemon-grass and a fruity hint somewhat like starfruit. Medium-bodied, good carbonation, very creamy and a finish that is dry, tart and tangy.

Smells clean and fresh. Easy to drink with smooth frothy head and nice bubbles. Taste of citrus and herbs. Slight tang with crisp finish. Really like this one.

drpimento (2152) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 8, 2011
Let this bottle warm a bit from the fridge. Poured with a large, foamy, frothy, fluffy, slightly thick, off white head that slowly settles and some lace. Color is a clear golden amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, hop, malt, spice, vineous. Flavor is a little on the sweet side with some bitterness and carbonic tang to balance. Body is a little soft, full, and carbonation is very good. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. This beer is virtually indistinguishable from the Belgians and super easy drinking. Itís not that itís so unique in its characteristics as it is in its being so true to style. Great beer!

Belgian yeast, spicy, earthy, sweet, orange peel aroma. Highly carbonated with small white bubbles. Dry spicy flavor with citrus and banana notes. Belgian yeast. Medium body. Very enjoyable.

superspak (2411) - Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2012
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy golden amber color with nice 2-3 finger pillowing white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, banana, herbal, floral, pepper, clove, lemon, bubblegum, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of lemon, pear, banana, bubblegum, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, earth, biscuit, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, banana, pepper, clove, biscuit, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of flavors; no cloying flavors at all. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong golden ale. Great complexity and balance of flavors; very smooth and crisp to sip on. Really enjoyed this one.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Poured into a tulip: a lightly hazy honey/orange with a dense 3 fingers of white foam, which fade into a moderate sized cap. The nose is lemony coupled with dusty-oak and a wild yeastiness. The taste starts with dry apricot and pear followed by spicy malty grains. The end is lemony with notes of straw and wheat. The finish is nice and dry with a lite champagne like carbonation. This beer is very crisp and refreshing. Just so easy going down and incredibly light on the palate. The the 7.75% ABV doesnít have any burn and is well hidden.

Thanks to Superdave!! Bottle pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is fruity with honey, wheat bread, white pepper, and alcohol. Flavor shows the same with some additional lemon, pear, and yeasty goodness. Overall body is moderate, lightly sweet, and finishes dry with some nice warming alcohol. Another pretty solid, tasty brew from squatters.

Wow, Iím the first to rate this excellent beer. It is available in 750 ml bottles at the brewpub, about 1,000 bottles made, so it should be around for awhile. 7.75% alcohol. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a thick foamy white head. The aroma is sweet; lots of yeast, light fruit, apples and some malty zest. The flavor is smooth and nice; lots of yeast, gentle fruit aspects, apple and perhaps peach, a bubbly mouthfeel. Very nice and a great example of the style. Jenny and Squatters keep making excellent beers, thanks!

Black waxed topped 750ml, generously gifted to me by Eric, footbalm himself. Pours a nice cloudy orange with a big white foamy head. Nose is sweet and spicy with a touch of citrus. Taste is sweet, light, with a very nice bubbly mouthfeel. I concur with mikey there is clearly a dry champagne feel to this beer, and I like it. Solid Utah brew!
