Picked up a can from the brewery in Baltimore, poured into a Delirium Tremens tulip.

A - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a light fluffy white head with a great retention. The beer is clear enough that I can read text through my glass. The head leaves a soapy retention down to the bottom of the glass.

S - Very floral and yeasty aroma with a light hop bitterness. The aroma is perfectly balanced, you get a nose-ful when you take a deep whiff, but not overwhelming.

T - The taste offers very little of the smell that got me excited about this beer. The taste is just a light bitter mess that tastes like an old pale ale. I bought a fresh six pack from the brewery, so I doubt it's aged. The aftertaste is just flat bitterness, similar to very bitter chocolate. I'll drink it but am certainly not impressed.

M - Mouthfeel is flat, bland and watery. There is a slight bubbly bite at the end, but not much going.

Overall, this beer isn't a winner. The aroma and appearance thought this would be an out of the park home run, but the taste and mouthfeel left me disappointed. Brewer's Art makes much better stuff.

Yet another big thanks owed to mikereaser from the Under 100 Bif. I think I have just one more treat after this. Helluva haul that was.

Big 750ml. Pours an apricot colored semi-opaque fluid under an absolute abomination of a snow white head. There's three inches of beer and four inches of head, she said. Mushmellow. I wonder if it will ever die or it it is immortal. The beer contains a full onslaught of bubbles racing to the top. Damn head might still be growing. Looks like alka seltzer. IT'S ALIVE!

I smell citrus and spice through the foam. Tastes like lemon. With spices. Not bad.

Carbonation is over the top rude as hell. I'm talking unnecessarily rude. Mouthfeel and drinkability suffer as a result.

Overall: served its purpose

I thought that it was going to be like duvel since the description said it was their answer to it. Didn't have much of a smell. served in a chimay like goblet glass. Touch of apple on the nose, some alcohol, and malt. half-one finger head. For me it didn't feel like a belgian strong ale. It tasted more of a saison with a boozy bite to it. That didn't mean the beer was bad but it was not described properly. Would I get it again? Probably not.

12 oz can into tulip. cant make out the canned on or best before date printed on the side of the can.

A: pours with virtually no head. hazed orange body. theres some brown stuff on the bottom of my glass. it looks like wood splinters. limited lacing.

S: soft fruit. pears. no hop aroma. sweet unfermented sugar.

T: very similar to the nose. a lot of fruit. very sweet. pears. a little bit of yeasty, earthy bitterness. chalky for a moment. finish has a lingering sweetness.

M: moderate carb on a medium body.

D: not bad, not great. finding this very middle of the road. wish I knew what this crap was sitting at the bottom of my glass. working past that, this thing still doesn't have anything that really grabs me.

From the tap at the Grey Lodge, this beer poured a clean and clear gold color. A thinning white head topped off this brew. Low carbonation. From this beer emits a strange egg like aroma, or it can maybe be described as a Sanford felt tip marker. The taste is light fruity and has a spicy, almost peppery hop bite. Lemon cough drop notes come out. Medium malt bodied beer and finishes sharp and clean with a light and peppery dryness and a dry spicy hop sting. This is an enjoyable beer that has a distinctiveness about it.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Glad to see this on tap, as a full bottle would be a little much for me. Golden colored pour, pristine clarity, topped with a small, rocky, white head; low retention and just a bit of lacing at first. Quite Belgian in the nose, bready yeast, light spice, herbal hop notes. Taste of toasted cereal grains, Belgian yeast with fruit ester undertones, grassy, peppery spice. Light body, pretty easily drinkable, but nothing amazing. Not really sure what this beer has to do with Ozzy, unless it's a "prince of darkness" reference or something.

Apperance - A very hazy darkish orange with no sort of foam/head

Smell - A light smell that gives you some wheat

Taste - A very very strong wheat beer taste. Those who do not enjoy wheat beer will not like this

Mouthfeel- Excellent mouthfeel that seems to almost gain carbonation at the end

Overall - Good warm weather beer for people who like wheat beers. Blue moon fans meet your king!
