On draught during ABR ’08 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a semi-hazy golden amber brew with thin off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of sweet candi sugar, golden grain malt, some light cloves and white pepper. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of golden grain malt with plenty of yeast, some cloves, banana esters, candi sugar and some mild spices. Finish has a light and mild bitterness that slowly disappears to a light yeast aftertaste. badgerben (5282) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Dark orange with a large head. Aroma of dry grain, light floral hops and a touch of spice. Thick and chewy malt flavor. Very light spice and a decent helping of yeasty flavors. Seems pretty strong for a Table Beer, but a solid tasting brew anyway. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2008
(Cask) Pours a hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of florals, citrus, clove, apple, pepper, and other spices. Flavor of yeast, light citric hops, and herbs with a mildly bitter finish. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 25, 2008
GTMW ’08. Cask. Poured a slightly hazy golden color with a white head. Smelled of corn flakes, clove, and distinct banana candy (ala Runts). Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet. Tasted of honey-touched cereal grain and subdued clove. vyvvy (6639) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2008
GTMW 08 on cask - Pours golden orange with a large bubbly head. The aroma has gentle belgium malt, some Belgium sugar along with some earthniess. Medium rich body with only a little bit of carbonation. The flavor starts overly sweet for the style and is cloying with lots of Belgium malt. The finish continues with the same. I prefer my singles drier than this.

on tap at GTMW ’08. pours copper with small head. spicy, estery, light body, refreshing table beer. i wouldnt mind more of this. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Copper, muted head. Nose yeasty, bit fruity, mild spice. Flavor similar, not a whole lot going on here. I guess this is the Belgian equivalent of a lawnmower beer? It’s nothing bad, just basically an easy drinker with a Belgian yeast character. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 6, 2006
I’m a bit surprised that there’s no section here for a Belgian single, which this is, so I tossed the dart at this stylistic designation. And there we go...
Lovely looking in the glass, a hazy, golden orange, under a considerable head, looking nice...
Aroma was very lovely, a mix of citrus, spice, yeast and more, very uplifting and aromatic.
Taste is this again and then some, zesty, citric, spicy, tasty, very flavorful, mucho deliciouso...for a style little attempted by any American breweries, this is a revelation. I’ve had a few "real" versions, and this one "hit it"!
I had two servings and would’ve had more, if it weren’t closing time. I urge one and all to march up (or down) to NB and try some of this!

Growler ala SoG. Dark golden color with a small lid of off-white bubbles. Pale malt aromas with a touch of floral hops. Pure pale malt flavors with a light rose and hint of white grape. Simple, but that is what it is supposed to be. It is what it is. undsioux7 (876) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Not something I would ask for again, but a nice change to the huge trippel belgian ales. Its like a trippel, but way toned down. Not bad.
