dull straw color with a frothy white head. bready and citrusy, slightly nutty. very mild/neutral flavors for a belgian ale--harder to find than something like chimay, and i’m not sure it’s worth the extra effort.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 Large white foamy head on top of a pale dull yellow/amber body. Good clumps of lacing on the glass. Citrus hop notes on the nose as well as warming alcohol. Citrus on the taste, along with a touch of pepper, pear, yeasty cheese and not a lot else.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Compact foam but not excessive long-lasting. Yellow pale much cargo and veiled color. Dense and with a strong and decided body. Perhaps lightly too much alcoholic.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Nice orange cloudy brew with a huge head. Very appetizing aroma with citrus, yeast, and sweetnes (peaches or apples) combined with notes of hop.
The flavor is delicious. Again some citrus or orange sharpness combined with coriander and a distinct well balanced malty bittersweetness. Long robust finish that goes on forever. Enjoy!

Bottled (BB 07/2006)
Deep hazy orange, floating yeast particles. Off-white medium head. Fruity, malty, a bit lemon nose, not very strong. Palate is smooth and very carbonated. Flowery, lemon, yeasty flavor. Like drinking foam! Interesting and excellent blond.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2009 Bottled. A slightly hazy orange/gold coloured beer. The taste and aroma are full of pear drop notes. There is some banana and good peppery flavours as well. It started off very much like a triple with lots of spices but did mellow after a while. Nice stuff.Score 3.5
Subsequent rating scored 3.9. Average becomes 3.7

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Perfumy, fruity aroma. Cloudy, dark gold in color. Looks like a German weiss beer. Nice lace. Wheaty, rich in flavor. Smooth with some caramel notes. Somewhat like Abbaye Des Rocs Grand Crus, although I think I might like that a little better.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
There wasa touch of alcohol on the aroma. Both the taste and aroma reminded me of dried fruits. Plum, raisons, etc. It was malty, a tad astringent, but very good. The mouthfeel was thick, a bit slick.
