4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one pours a very cloudy gold color with a medium sized, lingering white head. The aroma is fruity, spicy, and yeasty. Medium bodied and very smooth, the flavor is perfectly balanced between the malty sweetness and the yeast spiciness with banana undertones. Medium carbonation. This is a very enjoyable belgian blond ale, well balanced and very tastey.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured a light cloudy gold color and formed a nice foamy head that left circular lace. A small bit of carbonation is present. It had an aroma of malt, clove and citrus. The flavor was of malt, citrus and banana. The finish was a touch tart. Not a bad beer for this style.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very light straw color with a moderate head. Crystal clear. Fruity aroma. Nice banana esters. Some malt in the nose. Quite spicy aroma and flavor, almost wheat-like. Very creamy and slightly sweet with a surprising bitterness in the finish. Strong similarities to a Belgian Strong Golden Ale. Excellent!

Imbibed in October 2002. Fruity, spicy aroma. A clear blonde-gold color with a nice, big, white head. An initial flavor of apricots and sweetness. A light bitter aftertaste follows nicely.

clear golden with a medium firm white head. yeasty and floral aroma. i find the alcohol level of this beer hard to believe becaus it is very easy drinkin. floral and yes i agree with the previous two raters, a little doughy. touch of acid in the end cleans my palate out quite nicely. i served this beer in chimay glasses and the carbonation was fantastic, lots of bubbles straight up the middle of the glass the whole time. finish was somewhat dry.
