Tap at Sunset. Muddy light brown pour. Harsh aroma caries over into the taste, very minerally. A total freakin’ mess. A miserable beer. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2007
On tap at Amici’s in Ebensburg. Had a fairly weak aroma, mild hoppiness with a light neutral fruitiness. Mild dusty grains and not a lot of much else. Clear amber golden body with a thin off-white head. Light in texture with medium carbonation. Dull grain flavor with light sweet maltiness. Some carbonic gassy tangyness. Light neutral fruit and mild floral hops. Bitter finish with a dry chalky bitter after. Overall, kind of watery. I like mild Belgian ales, but this one didn’t have much to offer.

Draft at DRE. Clear copper colored with creamy off-white head. Aroma of acrid citrus, bready malt, hops, and earthy sweaty armpit notes. Tastes caramel malty, with brown sugar, very bready malt notes, citrus. The finish gets doughier and more citric, and the whole thing comes off as a bit odd, but not bad.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2007 Tap at Blind Tiger. Deep amber-golden beer, thick white head. Aroma is of pale Belgian malt, a touch of caramel/crystal sweetness on the nose. Soft subtle yeast aroma gives a light subtle spiciness that accents the lean malts. A bit of earthy aroma and a bit of clove. Very faint tartness, a bit of berryish fruitiness as well. The flavour has a bit of minerally and sulphurous character on the front, before a very subtle balance of fruit and lean pale Belgian malt. This is a nice, well-balanced sessionable ale, with much more character than I gave it credit for the first time around.
Tap at the Belgian Room. Clear light amber colour with a thick white head. (Incredibly expensive I might add too, at 8 bucks for about an 8 oz pour). Head fades to leave a lovely Belgian lace. Light fruity aroma, apple, pear, and a bit of peachy stone fruit. Fairly minerally aroma as well with a bit of sulphur. Light pale malts give a touch of sweetness to the peachy fruitiness. Crackery flavour against a hint of pear and apple. Soft tart finish. It’s decent, but it’s not really that great.

Poured a dark copper color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted dough, toffee, citrus, and light spices. Taste was more toasted dough, with a pronounced citrus character, toffee, light nuts, and a bit of caramel.

Had this on draft recently and it poured out an amber color with a small white head.There were aromas of spice,floral and malts.In the taste there was citrus and fruit as well as the spice and malt.This is a pretty good every day beer and at 5%,not too overpowering-not that there is anything wrong with overpowering. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2007
UPDATED: APR 27, 2007 Draft. Clear orange body with thin head. Aroma is lite with some spices and lite citrus being present. Flavor is dry with a lite sweet sugary taste. Malty and slightly bitter. A very boring ale which if I had to classify it I wouldn’t be sure where to put it. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2007
On tap. Poured a medium orange color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of biscuit, fruity, spices and light yeast. Tastes of breadiness, fruits, and light spices. I was also getting a light herbalness in the tastes. Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2007
Draft at Tyler’s Taproom in Durham, NC. Pours a pretty, clear amber color. Thick white head. Apples and peaches in the aroma. Big juicy malty flavor with a bready finish and a pleasant sparkling mouthfeel. Not incredibly complex but tasty and enjoyable.
