2.83/5  rDev -20.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Draft pour yields a clear, light amber gold brew sporting a two inch head of bone white that fades too quickly, leaving lace that is washed away by the following sips.

Aroma is strange and not very characteristic, strong cooked vegetable, sweet fruits, and nondescript bitterness from the hops.

Flavor is muted fruit tones, tart, rotting green apple, canned corn, and bitter hops that don't display any personality whatsoever.

Body is below medium, with a flat feel from the huge bubbles of rising carbonation. Not noteworthy and not recommended.

I had this on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Charlotte. It poured a hazy gold with a light white fluffy head. Aroma is orange, fresh bread, more citrus on the finish. The taste has grapefruit orange, yeasty bread, caramel. Overall I found this beer a little sour and jumbled. Tight, slick mouth feel. Ok drinkability.

A very pleasing beer from RJ. Brought this to the hotel room in a growler from Terry's in Spartanburg.

After decanting/pouring into a proper pint glass (I always carry one in my travels), a very nice head forms and stays for the whole session. Very creamy, white head. Nice lacing down the glass. A very appealing beer.

Smells of yeast and fruits. Quite crisp. Smells sweet as well. Almost macro-ish but not quite. I cant put a finger on the smell but it is very pleasing. Smells like a banana or a very creamy type fruit; plantanes or sweet melons maybe?

Very nice hop and malt balance. The hops hit at the back with a bite on the back of the tongue. The sweetness stays at the front of the palate. Hops then come back to rule the roost. This is a great beer, especially for the capped SC standards.

The best beer of RJ Rockers repertoire.

4/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a honey colored clear body with a decent head and some lacing

Smell: Has that Belgian smell - bananas and other sweet light fruit

Taste: Lays down a sweet backbone with banana flavors, followed up with a bitter, hoppy finish

Mouthfeel: Meidum bodied with modest carbonation

Drinkability: Good example of a style rarely produced in these parts
