On tap at Apex, pours an opaque amber orange with a small white head. Aroma is sharp, with notes of Belgian yeast, earthy notes, and feet - not much in the hop department. Flavour is well-balanced, bringing out Belgian yeast, light candied sugar and floral hops. Decently cohesive, though a bit messy. Decent, but not up to Bear Republic’s usual standard.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy whote head. The aroma is a sweet hop with grapefruit and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter hop bite and nice bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well, a good belgian from Bear Republic. bhensonb (15977) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Draft at Sacramento Brewing Company. Very dark, but clear, brown color with a significant creamy beige head. Aroma seems to be resin hop. Medium plus body with creamy carbonation. Flavor seemed to start grapefruit then turned into fruit and pine. The flavor is smooth and massive. The finish is dry, fruity and wonderful. My mouth probably isn’t good enough for such a good beer.

Draft at Smokehouse in Columbus. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus hop and earthy aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium spicy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Served on draft at Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. 5/14/10. Pours a clear copper color with a medium creamy head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is big bitter hop notes with tropical fruit and a bit of toffee. The taste is very bitter resiny hops with some tropical notes. Any malts are completely overpowered. Decent beer but it could benefit from some more balance.
