FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a large yellow white head that produced some lacing. The aroma was caramel, strong lemon, yeast and pepper. The flavor was tart, and bitter with lemon, pepper and yeastiness mixing. The finish was long, tart lemon. Medium body. Ok. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Bottled. Poured clear medium orange with a fizzy white head and constant rising carbonation. Aroma picked up spicy yeast and banana bread.. apple skins and apricots.. and a rather hefty sweet candy presence (not unlke Circus Peanuts)... intriguing. Flavor had bunches of light fruity sweetness at the core, well-accented by white pepper and clove spiciness.. perfumey notes increase with warmth. Just about medium-bodied with OK balance to it.. quite a lot of spicage going on. Solid brew. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2010
Draft. Very hazy golden pour with some light head. Aroma is very big, citrus, and wheat notes. Flavor come through well but doesn’t live up to aroma. Decent belgian ale, not too much abv. Strykzone (7356) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Orange pour with a quickly dissipating head and plenty of suspended yeast. Yeast, hop, and spice aroma. There is a little bit of everything in the flavor. Yeast, hop, fruit, spice, malt, and alcohol. The hop[ adds a lot of zestiness that electrifies the tongue at times. Bubblegum showed up after the glass warmed, a result of the yeast. So multi-faceted! New flavors in every other sip. Delicious, too! TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 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.

Pours a hazy orange bronze with a thin, clingy-lacing white head. Aroma has a nice sweet light caramel and honey orange coriander character. Body starts fairly full and wheaty sweet with good honey and coriander flavor toward a crisp, bittersweet finish with a good dose of bready yeast. A nice witbier. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2010
bottle shared with Rudolf & Harry @ Coles. Murky orange pour. Orange juice, some spice, sweet!! aroma. taste was orange/nectarine juice, sweet malts, mild spice. different HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2010
September 10, 2010 - 12oz bottle shared by SwoopJones with me and Rudolf. Pineapple juice -like murky orange-yellow with an average diminishing white head. An interesting aroma mashing up moderate alcohol, sweet candi bubblegum/banana, and lots of grassy bitterness, but if you take a good honking sniff of it, there’s a weird sweaty vintage gym shoe funk to it too, which detracts a bit. Taste is "sweaty" but that’s yeast and pungent hoppiness, and fair bit of alcohol; background fruit-sweet malt - better than the aroma, no pongy footwear detected. Thick mouthfeel, astringent and decently carbonated; the malt fades fast and leaves a pungent back of palate/tongue acidic bitter aftertaste. wlajwl (6806) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Aroma is Belgian yeast, bubblegum and malts. The flavor is lemons, fruit, mild sweetness, malts and a mix of mild alcohol and tangy in the finish. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with virtually no head at all. The nose is really nice: tropical fruits, fresh delicate hops, a subtle coriander note, light yeast, and indeed a touch of bubblegum. The bright hops and coriander grab you right away, yielding a heavy perfume like flavor that while interesting, isn’t especially great. A heavy dose of sweetness and tropical fruits follows, but it does dry out a bit on the back end with the help of the fizzy effervescent carbonation. Rather heavy on the tongue for a Belgian Ale, but the carbonation does help. Overall a pretty interesting beer, perhaps not the greatest, but I did like it.
