Bottle. Fatty! Woo. Pours clear golden, good floral nose. Citrusy, i dunno. Just a beer that I drank. Nothing stands out. northropfrye (3515) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 29, 2013

Draft on tap at Dotty’s (Madison, WI). Birthday/VDay Dinner with the missus. Pours a murky hazed amber pour, darker in body with some gentle glow, orange gold, some homemade applesauce. Cakey white head films well, laces ok. Aromas are gentle sweetness, pear and apple, kisses of yeasty and a gentle clove. Mellow honey sweetness, touches of melon, doughy malts. Touches of bubblegum, pear, and gentle doughy grainy malts. Mellow Belgian yeast influence on the nose. Initial shows a lighter end of medium bodied, touches of sweeter bubblegum, dough, and fruit waft into the fold. Touches of coriander, mellow Belgian yeast, touches of citrus dance in. Clove and coriander mix, coriander hitting the palate better as we get further in. Gentle bubblegum, dryness as we move back. Some grassiness, mellow yeast, touches of spice, gentle apple and dry grainy malts. Loses some of that sweetness as we move past the middle, hits with just a touch of heat to let you know this beer is a bit bigger than you may have expected. Overall, not usually a style I relish. This seems well constructed though and certainly hit the spot for me this evening. Solid. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013

bready, and thick, maybe good for a winter beer, glad to be in Wisconsin with beer like this jcnielsen (3403) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with small white head. Rather weak malty, hay aroma. Malty, alcohol, apricot, coriander, and spicy flavors. For a strong belgian, this is a pretty nice sessionable belgian. I could see myself knocking back a few of these. 3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2012

Well you cannot say this beer is the same old same old. I suppose our RateBeer friends have to put this under some category. May I suggest "Offbeat Blends" or "Hopeless Cute Names"? This one starts with an aroma in the ballpark of a Belgian--all spiced and bubblegummish. The hops give it a dry bite and a peppery finish. Fun to try but definitely not sessionable.
