3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Very hazy, yellow ale with a large, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Great lacing.
There's a lot going on in the aroma and flavor. Tons of spice, banana, zest of orange, etc. Full-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Lengthy, crisp, dry finish. Complex brew... to say the least! Thanks to bierkonig for the bottle.

As light as an unfiltered wheat. As light as a snowflake. Yeasty nose and citrus flavor. My opinion the lightest of all of the Trappest ales. Refreshing.

This beer came across light looking, but within a first taste and deep smell of yummy citrus. Very bubbly freshening crisp going across the tongue. I enjoyed this beer.

Bottle pours a hazy yellow amber with a minimal head but good lace. The aroma is yeasty and clovey. The flavor is yeasty, citrus, clovey, sweet, and well balanced with hop. The palate is sort of slick in the mouth but also carbonated. Overall, this is fine.

Milky yellow and mostly opaque. Big and lemony-yeasty nose. Smooth, biscuity malts with a sweet nature. Quenchy hops with a nice bitterness level. Nicely balanced beer. Aromatic lemon overtones; some nice yeasty notes, too. Refreshing and flavorful.
