Sampled at twin peaks, concord, nc slightly cloudy straw colored pour. Minimal head. Kind of sweet and smooth. Good example of the class from a local in the south. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Harris Teeter, Hampstead, North Carolina. Golden with a carbonation. Strong tasting well styled Belgian ale with banana eventually coming to the fore in both aroma and taste.

Bottle. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Aroma is phenolic, banana bread, aside. Flavor is somewhat sweet, lots of fruity esters, some spice, virtually no bitterness. Medium body, lower carbonation. Meh

12 oz bottle courtesy of a friend, thanks Mike! Hazy orange with a little off-white head. Aromas of banana, herbs and cloves, wheat, a touch of alcohol. Tastes of banana, herbs, cloves, malt, some citrus. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

12 oz bottle, marked brewed May 2011 (from 2011 notes), poured into a pint glass. Some of the additional sediment in bottom of bottle added after the first few sips. A - Hazy golden color, darker than a standard American lager, with a 1 finger of-white head. The head has moderate duration and leaves little lacing. Sediment (yeast?) in bottom of glass. Sediment suspended Aroma: Mainly a moderately strong, fruity and yeasty. Hints of coriander. cloves & cinnamon in the nose The 7% ABV is partly apparent in the nose although mostly hidden upon tasting. Taste: this is a surprisingly malty ale with a fine yeasty Belgian bent. a good bit of clove, and some mild tartness. Different from any beer I can remember and with very enjoyable flavor, finish and aftertaste. M - medium-light body; well-chosen carbonation; semi-dry finish; lightly crisp.

Pours a nice but slightly cloudy gold with a thin white head that lingers nicely. sweet fruity aroma. Citrus without the bitterness, smooth and sweet but not excessively. finishes with the crispness of a granny smith apple.

Cloudy orange pour from bottle. Sweet juicy aroma. Sugars, yeast a slight bitterness. Ok.

ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the "World of Beer" in Cary, NC. This beer has a murky golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is of slight hops and some spice. The flavor is a nice blend of citrus and spice with some malt and hops. a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. A really good beer highly recommended.

Bottle pour at Travlr’s Mini Bottle Share gathering, thanks solidfunk! Copper-gold with small white head. Malt, grains, yeast, corn, earthy hops. Zesty. Eh.

solidfunk (9729) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 6, 2015
A little sour for what’s supposed to be a blonde. Only a hint of florals. Pours amber. Tangy finish. Bottle from Charleston beer exchange.
