3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. Poured a clear golden color. Head was thin, white, and left a little lace behind. Aroma was of clove and alcohol. Slightly sweet on the tongue with subdued clove and alcohol flavors. Mouth feel was a bit thin. There was some pleasant fresh malty cereal grain at the end.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
WBF. Golden with no haze. The head is med /thick and white. The aroma is sour, has some must, sweet aroma. The flavor is exactly the same. Definitely Belgian but remains fairly one dimensional. Some GOP would "spice" this up.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2011 Draft. Golden color similar to a light ale with large, visible bubbles. Almost no head, just a paper-thin white layer on top. Citrus fruits, bread, and alcohol make up the nose. Quite an interesting blend of peppery spice and sourness in the flavor with plenty of alcoholic heat following it down. The soda bubbles add to the peppery mouthfeel and make for a very sharp palate. I’m thrilled to see a new brewery in Durham, and one that focuses on Belgians is perfect. They’ve yet to blow me away with their regular offerings, but I have found their beers are getting better the more I try them.
(rerate) I hate to pan local brewery I want to love, but the more I’ve had this beer, on tap and in cans, the less happy I am with it. My last 6-pack was extremely sour to the point it was difficult to drink. Please come out with something new, or clean up your current offers, cause I really want to be a fan of you guys.

Pours a golden color with very little head. Fruity aroma hints at peach, pineapple, and pear. This one is a bit bready at the start before giving way to tropical fruitiness. The carbonation is a little soft for the style and the alcohol is very well hidden. A good start for this new brewery.
