A – Hazy golden orange color with good carbonation

S – cantaloupe, and some tart fruit

T – grapes, cantaloupe, with a pepper finish, some light belgian yeast

M – medium bodied, well carbonated

O - Good belgian style with a twist. Drinkable, but not for everyone. Had it on draft and out of a growler.

Thanks to jtd1969 for bringing this back from recent trip to Asheville

A – cloudy, dark hazy orange with a soft, white head that has little retention

S – funky, fruity

T – cantaloupe, fruity, grapes, a bit tart, some alcohol in the finish

M – warm, medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a unique, decent beer. It’s imperfect, but it has a nice flavor profile. The cantaloupe is forward but doesn’t match the Belgian yeast character. A bit more balance and some toned down yeast would be really make this a solid offering.
