COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our favorite beer to drink. We like to call it our "LIGHT BEER" because it is so drinkable for its size; weighing in at 10.54% ABV (Alcohol by volume). This is a Belgian Blonde Ale, brewed with a CrAzY amount of malt and little Belgian candi syrup to give it that rich Belgian flavor. Hopped with just enough earthy Sterling hops to leave a little sweet rich malt flavor, which makes this beer go down so smooth. We work hard to get our yeast to attenuate, keeping the body down, so it seems much lighter than it really is.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty orangish straw, fine sediment about, thin frothy off-white head, little lacing.   Semi-sweet doughy and bready aroma.   Faint floral and fruity notes.   Seems more citrusy, doughy, with some dank barnish notes on the tongue.   Not heavy in the bready sense, which so many American brewers do.   This was a bit of a surprise to me.   Backside is a bit musty, faint floral and citrusy, doughy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Th 10.5% ABV is very well hidden.   Better than expected.   Thanks Bill!

the newest texas brewery, lets see .. Pours a deep caramel orange .. low foam, even on the pour- light spots of lacing .. . soft mouth, and amazingly smooth, quite remarkable in that sense .. . lots of dough, light grain, touch of golden raisin bread, natural honey, and a touch of buttery caramel booziness .. . easy finish, quite slippery in the mouth .. . i think it needs to be firmer and more defined, and maybe cleaned up a bit but quite good for the first release from this very young brewery, and also very ambitious to do such a high gravity brew, so props for that! but lower the price a bit, almost 12 bucks is way to much for a bomber, i know i will never go near this again at that price, you’re local- don;t forget that.. . .

Mora2000 (5755) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2012
The beer pours a golden-orange color with a small white head. The aroma is not good. I get a lot of alcohol, but I also get some circus peanut quality as well as something that resembles apple cider vinegar. The flavor is not any better. The apple cider vinegar notes are back with a vengeance, as is some sugar, biscuit, toffee and grass. The alcohol is also present. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not good.

travita (4053) - Frisco, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2014
Bottle. The look is cloudy, not blonde, copper colored, and has a big foamy beige head. The smell is sweet, fruits, styrofoam, sugary, and star fruit. The taste is about the same, alcohol, and malt.
