PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2016
12oz bottle into a super giant wine glass. Pours a shaded and hazy orange marmalade. Clean white head, loose creamy lacing. Aroma of apples, Belgian spice, coriander, grapefruit. Taste of melon, ripe citrus, orange peel, sour apples, tart and clean hop profile, crisp carbonation, lovely flow going down.

bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Aroma of wheat and coriander. Nearly clear light amber color, persistent fluffy white head curtain of lace. Taste is malt and wheat that adds banana and spice as it moves through a crisply carbonated swallow. Minimal hops are needed to balance this big ale. Alcohol warmth is not here, but I feel the big alcohol push as I drink it. It actually would be better with a lower abv.

Pours a hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty. Flavor is moderately sweet, highly alcoholic, with a nice hop bite to it. I expected more hop action.

jspencer78 (39) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Beautiful amber with a large, slightly off-white long lasting head that leaves lots of lacing. Medium body, lively carbonation. This beer is better than average because of its finish which is spicy, fruity, slightly sweet but wonderfully balanced.

jgb9348 (6191) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Hazy golden coloured body with a large, four centimetre tall off-white head that leaves a decent lace on the glass. Aroma of honey, bread, yeast, alcohol, coriander seed, curacao, hay and some grass - nice and pungent. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hay and grass flavours at first with a lot of yeast and wheat noticeable and a good sweetness from honey and bananas as well along with a dry herbal finish that shows similar to a saison. Aftertaste shows a light sweetness, but this is all about the dry quality and yeast complexities of the finish. Overall, a nice and robust beer that shows more of a belgian than of an American, and that is a good thing, given the complexities and the ’old world’ quality of the beer. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 12-July-2015 for US$2,59 sampled at home in Washington on 17-January-2016.
