3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that reduced slowly, down to a heavy film with a large collar which possessed some excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a funky barnyard Belgian yeast and a light grain malt with notes of honey, citrus (lemon), toffee, a mild fruitiness and a slight alcohol scent.
The taste was lightly sweet with a malty citrus note in the beginning, and then became very yeasty and a bit sour with a hint of green apple and a slight peppery alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a nice mild fruity funky yeast taste left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and creamy in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall a very good Belgian Ale with a nice fruity citrus presence, that along with a good mix of yeast and alcohol helped make sure that no one flavor was so overpowering that it overshadowed any other. This brew was very tasty and rather refreshing for a beer that has such a high ABV…
From bottle. Nice cloudy liquid. Can’t see through. Color is light orange. It has white cap, the biggest part of it located in corners. Typical Belgium strong ale tradition with its high alcohol percentage and overall taste. It is really fizzy and seems to be overcarbonated. Can’t really feel the aroma, but it is light and not attacking with flower notes. Taste is a bit sour. Oscbert (1304) - Lincoln, California, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Strong malty flowery aroma with honey and floral hops.
Pours a hazy orange color with lasting fluffy white head
Bready biscuity malt, honey, light hop spiciness. Well balanced.
Light fluffy bodied, high frothy co2, quick bready sweet finish.
Enjoyable beer, well balanced and easy to drink. Great mouthfeel.

Rob Brown got me this from Little Rock.
Hazy deep orange colour with enormous slowly shrinking but lasting white head. Aroma: Quite intense candy sugar, leather/funk aromas with a soft floral tone. Taste: Short sweet fruity start with a moderate bitter mouthfeel. The yeasty tone comes in with a soft tarty feel. Medium body with a bit too fizzy carbonation for the style. Short and evading bitter finish.

Cloudy pale gold. Hoppy aroma. Straight up belgian ale with really nice hop character. Like a lighter Hopsinjoor. Really enjoyable. Prickly hops and a dry biscuity side. Cool beer. StueyD (1583) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2017
A bright golden coloured beer with a thick off white coloured head. A light aroma, sour, slightly metallic and a touch vegetal, then a more malty aroma comes through towards the end. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is predominantly sour, zesty citrus fruit, acetic, metallic, then a slightly syrupy, sweetness, brings a touch of balsamic to the end flavour. The finish is tart and fruity.

On draft at Mermaid Tavern in Tampa. The pour is a nice golden orange with a thin ring of white head and a decent lace. The aroma is all Belgian. There is a strong clove and lightly metallic malt it’s got a little banana happening, but it’s just not what I was liking. The flavor is much of the same. Belgian clove and banan with a metallic wheatiness to it that I just don’t like. It’s worse because this was supposed to be a sour. The mouth feel is thicker and softly carbonated with a lingeringly clove and metallic malt finish. This was a disappointment.
