Bottle from the brewery, 12oz into a tulip.

Reddish orange, with a thin white head. Almost no retention, and the same case with lacing. Heavy Belgian yeast, fruity, slightly grainy and doughy and sweet malt character. Slight spice from the hops. Palate ha sweet doughy malt, spicy hops and a bittersweet finish. Full feel, alcohol is only partially disguised and the carbonation pops quite a bit on this one, even though it's not apparent on the pour. A nice Belgian golden strong, although this is tough to put back at when the spice and alcohol comes across too strong.

Single finger head with excellent lacing on a hazy to cloudy golden ad amber body. Aroma is sadly understated for the style with some Belgian yeast funk and banana citrus, little else. Flavors of banana, pear and pineapple citrus, Belgian yeast, herbal hops with the right amount of citrus and sweetness. Nice degree of Belgian character. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This is a nice one. Good Belgian style, doesn't wow you but still a nice brew.

Considered a Belgian golden ale; the beer is absolutely a nice golden hue; the lacing is solid, with a minor head; the beer smells fruity but still very strong and boozy; it's easy to taste the sugars in this beer; at 9.3%, it's serious business when it comes to consumption, and I think our waiter at the time (while totally overwhelmed w/ other patrons on a very busy Saturday) mistakenly poured me a pint of this when I had asked for a 4 ozer...no worries! This is a VERY strong offering in both flavor and alcohol.

Pours languidly into a tumbler glass, hard to generate much of a head, but there was about an eighth of an inch there momentarily. Foam quickly subsides, leaving a thin ring around the edges, no lacing. Tawny amber orange color, somewhat hazy.

Bubblegum and clove aromas, kind of a stereotypical "Belgian" aroma.

Spicy flavors, big on the phenolics, lasting clove in the aftertaste, low level pepper bitterness. Viscous body, low carbonation. Not a fan of the mouthfeel, a bit slick and coating, needs more carbonation. Overall not a total waste, it's not deeply flawed, just not appealing to personal taste. However i'm not sure about finishing it.

Thanks for this one Eric!

On tap at The Mark in South Bend on 8/10/12, served in a tulip.

Pour: Mostly clear golden, with two fingers white head. Slight lacing.

Smell: Light Belgian yeast. A hefty amount caramel malt.

Taste: Caramel malt, and light bready Belgian characteristics, but this beer is seriously lacking. When my gf tasted it, and she is no be slouch. her comment was "this tastes like regular beer" I unfortunately agreed.

Mouthfeel: A sipper, which is disappointing given its poor taste.

Overall: Not that good.
