Much thanks to...o man I forget his name now...o well. Pours out a cloudy straw color with a small off white head. Aroma is of some nice fruity yeast notes, some spices, pear, apple, light bubble gum and some bread crust. Taste is fruity Belgian yeast, apple, some spice notes, bubble gum, pear, some light bitterness in there and some mild notes of the alcohol. Lingering hard candy sweetness to it. Solid beer.

Wow...surprised at the ratings on this one. This was shared by TPatuto, waiting in line for GTMW tickets, and it was the star of the show for me, in a lineup of pretty awesome beers. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Nose is skunky and fruity--kind of like Orval--with light herbal hops. Taste is fresh and hoppy, with a nice yeastiness, herbal and light grassiness, light skunk, and a touch of tropical fruit. Really nice mouthfeel on this one--smooth and a bit syrupy. Would love a sixer of this.

16oz Can, shared at a party. Nice aroma, of solid, subtle fruits and classic stylistic twang. Fresh. Flavors were crisp and clean. I enjoyed this as an American interpretation of the more classic examples of the style, as it wasn’t too bubblegummy, sweet, nor sticky. It had a pleasant dryness to the heft and a fun range of character. Solid work.

The beer is golden in color with an off white big head. It smells sweet and lightly spicy like a typical Belgian golden ale. The is almost some sweet vanilla flavor with a very smooth body, the spices aren’t there like in the nose but the flavor of the Belgian golden yeast is delicious. Can is pretty cool too.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Can: Completely opaque golden-amber with a sunburst center. Creamy, off-white head with decent retention on top. Light, spotty lacing. Dense floral aroma, peppery hops, Belgian yeast, clove, peppermint, overripe banana, a touch of tart pear, & some perfume pungency. Flavor is very hoppy, floral, & leafy. A touch of ashy hops with bubblegum & clove spice heavy from the yeast. Notes of coriander, phenols, banana, pears, grapefruit rind, & Candi sugar sneak in & lead into a bitter, earthy, yeast filled finish.

One of the raddest cans I’ve ever seen! Being a huge Maiden fan this was a must. Pours a lightly hazed deep gold with a frothy white head. Nose was dominated by citrus and fresh floral hops. Very Duvel-esk on the palate.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Can thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a cloudy yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of farmhouse, light citrus, faint toast, light wheat. Flavor is slightly different, a bit sweet, some fruit and must, pretty earthy with a light dirty bitter with a clean citrus. Mouthfeel is light-medium body with fizzy carbonation. Not bad.
