She has a beautiful spicy belgian yeasty aroma: Rich and dark like the back of the pantry.
Tastes spicy with hints of floral hops, and definitely sugar cookie dough followed by plain DOT candy. The maltiness is very full and flavorful. The overall mouthfeel ends up clean and crisp. They advertise the use of candi sugar and wildflower honey. The color is of sunshine through a thin slice of lemon. She has a low-key froth, but it lasts and sticks like sweaty lace undies. I like the SKA! labels. This one features 2 blond cartoon girls with huge...smiles leaning on their blue scooters. Cool. I didn't detect any of the off flavors seemingly present in some of the earlier reviews.

A: Golden filtered with little carbonation, and a finger of off white head.

S: Belgian yeasts, slight smokiness, sweet, corn.

T: Belgian yeasts, slight smokiness, light sweetness, corn. Light fruitiness.

M: Medium light, slightly syrupy, medium low soda like carbonation.

O: An okay beer. As good as many Belgian versions I’ve tried. Got it at Earthfare, Asheville for $2.99 which I thought was a great deal for a 650 ml bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of beer, think PBR
Head ridiculously small, ie 1 cm, white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to < 2 mm broken layer
Lacing surprisingly good – nearly complete rings of small bubbles
Body light yellow, clear
Flavor spicy, slight malt; no alcohol, no malt, no diacetyl; as this warms, a spicier underlayer reveals itself
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

Not unpleasant, but very little flavor. Watery, decent carbonation and appearance. Meh.

From a Bomber, $6.49.

A: Far too clear with no head.

S: Yeast and wheat. A little sugar. Smells a little burnt and stale. Still the highlight of the beer.

T: Peanut butter flavored bubblegum. Just horrible.

M: A little thin, but not terrible.

O: Hard to drink. Really disgusting.
