Draft @ The Belgian Room. Nice looking when poured but poor head retention in a tulip glass. Aroma is fresh peach and apricot sprinkled with some farmhouse flavors. Taste is a bit off and a bit metallic. Dry and slightly sour orange, this misses the mark. DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draft at Capone’s. Medium coppery dark strawish pour with off-white head. The nose has a lot of funky yeast notes, plus spicy floral hops, citrus, peach, and some berry notes. Tastes malty, funky, spicy, with mid-palate hopcitrus and floral spicy notes, and a medium palate. This one tastes pretty Belgian, and is a great example of this style. This one surprised me. adrian910ss (2572) - Doylestown, PA, USA - JUL 23, 2007
On draft at Hop Devil Grill. Pours a cloudy orange amber with a medium white head. Aroma of perfume and apricot fruit. Taste is mildly apricot fruity with a perfume presence and a watery hoppy feel. Not bad. stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2007
On draft at Capone’s. Pours orange/amber with a small fluffy off-white head. Aroma of fruit, spices, yeast, citrus, and hops. The flavor is sweet, fruit, banana, spices, yeast, citrus, and a fair amount of hops are present. MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2007

Draught @ Eulogy: This one pours a slightly hazy, coppery color. It had a small off-white head and left some lacing. The aroma was nice, but somewhat milder. There were some caramel and bready notes, as well as some fruits and yeastiness. The taste is good, but a bit lighter than I expected. Flavors of caramel, some fruits and a bit of breadiness. Nice and refreshing. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2007
Tap at Barcade. Pale aber beern with a slightly sweet, bready/crackery malt aroma. Soft earthiness and light spice with a touch of banana and apricot character. Soft, minerally character. Light earthy/woody hop flavour with a a fair yeasty spice component and some peach and banana fruitiness. Light sulphury character on the back that is fairly interesting in this style. Good beer and surprisingly refreshing for something that is 6.5% ABV. Earthy and spicy with a soft bitterness. Nice beer. puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2007
On tap at Hop Devil. Dry, bready, taco shell aroma. Nice and unique. Flavor starts off similar, fruity, but develops a latent chemical/formaldehyde taste that completely ruins the beer for me. Most others didn’t notice this, although my girlfriend did. Perhaps I am more sensitive to it. Still, it was still quite drinkable, and would have been very nice if not for that. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - JUL 1, 2007
On tap at HDG. Amber and orange in color with a nice fluffy white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Hoppy malty aroma. Orangey and spicey hops. Malty and bready flavor. Citrusy hops and yeasty notes. Nicely balanced beer. Finish is malty and bready. Medium bodied. Nice beer. Very drinkable. kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Draft, at Tria (Phialdelphia, PA) pours orange-amber, with an average sized white head. Malt, yeast, and fresh hop aroma. Flavors shows delicate balance between malt and hops, with notes of bread and citrus. Really drinkable, but still with some good flavor. Long, mild hop finish.
