bottle. nose has some apple and cherry esters. pours with almost no head. taste is super sweet candy and reminds me of salt water taffy. a light hop bitterness helps dry it out. a moderate alcohol warming as well. tolerable, but not a beer I would seek out again. seems a little messy and sweet with almost not carbonation for a Belgian style beer.

Fizzy yellow beer comes to mind at first appearance. Spicy yeast aroma and grainy malts. Body is light and peppery with a malt forward finish.

SilentJo (65) - Chocowinity, North Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Aroma of hops, mild citrus. Taste follows that on a lower level. Smooth with mild carbonation and bitterness. Not bad but there’s nothing that makes it stand out.

penguinfinity (90) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy dark yellow, very light orange. Almost no head or lace. Smells vaguely fruity. Taste is a surprise, apricot maybe? It’s got a good flavor. A little too fizzy for my tongue, but tasty. I’d get it again.

Enjoyed this brew. Poured nice with good aroma and appearance to go along with a crisp taste.

MatSmi (1) - San Diego, USA - DEC 29, 2013 does not count
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass at 50 F. Best if drank by date of March 2014. Poured with thick white head that settled into a thin ring at the edge. Very yeasty aroma immediately after pouring with sweet, pilsner grain and little earthy hop notes later on. Lacing diminished quickly. Color was light gold and a bit cloudy (chill haze?). Apparent pils maltiness and sweetness with moderate earthy hop and low spicy flavor. Honey and a bit warm from alcohol on the finish. A little too sweet and yeasty for me but good on the style. Medium high carbonation went away quickly. I will drink another...cheers!

swoopjones (5333) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2013
draft at Blue monk, light blonde yellow pour, lighter bodied. light fruitiness lies underneath a small nonexistent aroma. sweet flavor, wet cardboard, light white wine notes, spree candy tartness. Meh

Westchesterco (790) - mclean, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Poured from s bottle it is a cloudy golden beer with a slight head. The aroma is of apticots and bubblegum. The taste has strong flavors of vanilla that redonates on the palate

Iphonephan (2694) - McLean, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2013
From a 12 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a hazy gold with a thin off white head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Malty backbone with some vanilla and spice flavors. Medium bodied, high carbonation, crisp finish.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Live rate. Bottle from Margaritaville, The Strip, NV, drank at The New Penguin, LE10. Warm orange gold with a fine slim cap. Nose of peppery Belgian esters and parsley hop. Decent enough MOR Belgian flavour with wine gum, white pepper, banana and tomato juice hits. Authentic and pretty tasty.
