COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale is made in the Belgian tradition with Noble hops and our Belgian yeast giving this blonde golden colored ale a wonderfully complex spicy clove like aroma and subtle dried apricot, and biscuit like flavor. This beer is a wonderful entry level Belgian beer for anyone unsure of Belgian styles.

On tap at Dohertys tavern Cary NC. Good aroma. Sweet, bready yeasty. Sweet greasy malts, mild fruit and funk and fruit yeast notes. Tad hazed orangy gold color, good head and lace. Moderate sweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel sweet finish, some lingering yeast spice on finish. Solid American Belgian ale.

Very nice belgian ale. Aroma is faintly spicy, sweet sugar, whisper of wet hay, and bread. Taste is somewhat sweet, some peppery notes, faint bubble gum, sugar...and the right amount of bitting fizz. Really solid.

Golden yellow pour with aroma of fruit, bread, and spice. Fruity flavor upfront with some bread and spice in the background. Pretty nice.

chinchill (4270) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2016
12 oz bottle from NC into a Belgian snifter. A hazy apricot body is topped by a short white head that soon reduces to a thin ring. Minimal spotty lacing. Aroma: bready malts, soft ripe fruits and funky yeast. Flavor: as usual for style, better than the aroma; in this case, much better. Loads of bready malts, especially for style. Feel: medium-light body; medium carbonation; dry finish. Very nice.

Draft at Rustico. Poured a pale yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was very light. Mild, light bubblegum, wheat. Light sweetness. Okay.

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2016
From bottle it’s lightly hazed gold with a fine white head. Aroma is malty in the way of honey and saccharine, hoppy in the way of flowers and herbs, estery in the way of banana and salt water taffy. Medium bodied, sweet, crisp, sharp, lightly bitter and lightly alcoholic. Yeast and malt aren’t the most interesting, but it’s nicely snappy and juicy and the carbonation braces the sugar well, and the fermentation profile is clean.

thornecb (5500) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Pours gold into a tulip. White head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Clove and heather aromas. Sharp with sweet honey and biscuit upfront turning to clove before the lasting bitter earth finish.

bubbleflubber (2159) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Pours into the glass a golden orange, with a short wispy head, translucent with visible active carbonation. The nose is of Belgian yeast, earthy hay, and light hops. The flavor is very much like dried fruits without residual sugars, biscuit and lots of clove, finishing spicy with a hint of complementing hops to round out the pull. The body is light, but is very complex to the palate and substantial in the mouth. And extremely nice summer brew that shows off craftsmanship and art. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
