22 oz bomber from Frougles poured into a tulip glass.

A - Orange-amber, fairly cloudy. Thin, half finger head that dissipates fairly quickly.

S - Bread, bananas, candied sugar

T - A sweet sugary start, with bready yeast notes and a clove induced finish.

M - Decent amount of heft, low carbonation

O - A good offering, and highly drinkable Belgian ale.

On tap at World of Beer in Raleigh. Served in a pint glass.

A - faint oranish gold with a thin, dense, white head that has decent retention

S - faint apples, funky, yeasty, fruity

T - spicy, fruity, yeasty, funky, a bit bitter and astringent in the finish

M - medium bodied, smooth, crisp

This is a bit heavy for me as far as the Belgian funkiness goes. It's a bit fruity and spicy, flavorful, but just a bit astringent. Overall, though, a solid offering.

Served from tap into a sampler tumbler. Poured a hazy golden yellow-orange with a half finger slightly off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, clove, banana, wheat, grain, and bubblegum. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, bubblegum, and grain. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. There wasn’t a lot going on in this one, but everything worked really well together. The bubblegum note was a really nice addition to this one as it seriously came out of nowhere. This is probably my favorite brew that I have had from this brewery thus far. Hopefully they keep making stuff like this for the future.
