Pint at Doherty’s Irish pub in Cary. Ok aroma, sweet, yeasty. Light toasted malt, little orange, banana. Clove. Clean golden orange color. Good that faded to a foam top. Spotty lace. Sweet flavor. Lighter body, smooth mouthfeel , sweet finish. It’s fine, not gonna wow, but drinks easy enough.
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. nickd717 (4822) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 20, 2017

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. lobosaintori (89) - - NOV 25, 2015
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.

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.
