12oz - Hazed dark orange, creamy white head. Soft candied pear and fuzzy fruits ride light waves of banana yeast and spice. Candi sugar caramel and banana flavors ride a spicy earthed orange hop tone. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A nice find while at the OBX...

nearbeer (5419) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 28, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2009 12 oz, bottled May 08. Foggy, darkish copper with a small head that lasts. Aroma is spicy fruit, caramel and corn. Flavors of grilled corn, spiced peaches, slight bubblegum, waxy apples and grapes, resin and light citrus. The peaty-fishy undertone throughout is interesting. Light-medium body finishes dry and smoked troutish.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
12oz bottle, notched on May (bottled on, 2008) thanks to TURDFERGUSON, thank you! Lightly hazy orange caramel with a ring of white head. Pears, apricots, and a bit of apples. Fruity. Cotton candy and spicy yeasty esters are also present. Flavor actually got a bit more fruity, but seemed a bit off somehow. Peach pits show up in the flavor, and it’s a big friggin’ fruit cocktail. Semi-dry finish with bitterness peaking around a 1 to 2. Pretty low carbonation with a medium body. Too much sweet and overripened fruit is going on here, though it wasn’t bad, by any means.

The aroma is very nice typical of the style. Something in the flavor didn’t seem right. It had a bit of sweetness and some sourness as well but there was something else almost fishy. Since I’m drinking it on the beach, I am discounting the fishiness. Still it’s not bad.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Hazy yellow in color with big fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast,belgian canbdy, and light sourness. The taste was the same with various spices dancing around. Firm on the palate with some dryness in the finish.

3.2

bottle thanks to turdferguson. cloudy, deep gold pour with a thin cream head. slight sour scent along with that lovely belgian yeast and dried fruits. nice thickness and a very spicy aftertaste. a mild fruit flavor with clove stands out as well.
