FLnative80 (174) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Bottle. 12 fl. oz. A cloudy, golden yellow beer with big, white sudsy head. Aromas of citrus, spice, and yeast. Medium bodied with an oily texture that leaves a film on the inside of your mouth. Flavor is light sweet rounded out with some bitterness, sourness and a dry, yeasty finish.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 11, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 Re-rate 7/12/10: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Dror. Hazy golden with floaties. Sweet aroma of fruits, yeast, sugar and acidic citrus hints. Sweet flavor with some bready pale malt, fruits, honey-ish hints, some yeast and a mildly bitter finish with a bit of citrus. Medium-bodied. Re-rating 3 years later and still getting the same score - then I guess maybe the problem last time wasn’t the tap. 6/3/6/3/13=3.1

Draught. Golden color with a small white head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Malt sweetness flavor with notes of fruits. A light to medium body. Very enjoyable and drinkable, but something is missing there. Considering all the praising reviews here, I might try it again sometime, since maybe the draught wasn’t very fresh.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 10, 2007
Bottle. Golden hazy colour with a nice big bubbly creamy head. Sweet aroma of yeast, malts, hops and fruits. Great smooth flavour of caramel, malts, some spices, some fruitiness and sourness. Great great brew!

sinte (410) - Udine, ITALY - MAY 8, 2007
Bottle 0.33 L. Hazy, golden-orange body with a huge, white head, fully lasting with an excellent lacing. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma (citrus) with spicy (maybe coriander), honey and fruits (pear and apple). Moderate-to-heavy sweet floavour with moderate bitter character (which partially balances the sweetness) and a light acidic note. Medium body with an oily texture; lively carbonation; moderate alcoholic feeling in the finish and light astringency. Maybe not really complex, but very satisfactory.

agl108 (909) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2007
On draft at Zeno’s, Penn State. Poured blond with no head or lacing. Appeared relatively uncarbonated. Flavor was surprisingly good, hints of pear, apple and even raspberry. This beer’s presentation really ruined the experience for me though.

thebeertourist (5102) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 27, 2007
Bottle. Hazy, orange golden colour with a good white head. Sweet, fruity and spicy aroma. Fruity flavours, sweet, but with good bitterness as well, leading towards a drier finish. Candy sugar. Hints of coriander. Fizzy, warming alcohol. Not bad.

gnoff (8746) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2007
(33 cl bottle from Systembolaget) Labeled 6.8% ABV. Clear golden color, big white lasting head. Acidic, almost sour, scent; fruity and also sweet with Belgian ale yeast notes. Sweet sugary, also yeast and alcohol taste, some spices. Spritzy high co2 mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Nothing special and the high co2 makes it tip to the lower end of the scale.

sirpsycho (393) - Murrysville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle. Actually ordered a Leffe Blonde, got this instead. Not much of an aroma, malty and yeasty. Slight fruits in taste, carbonation. Not bad, but then I was expecting one of my favorite session beers (Leffe) so I’m not sure this was a fair rating, will have to order it again to size it up better.

Derek881 (1079) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - APR 16, 2007
Sampled on draft at Max’s Taphouse in a trappist glass. I chose this beer to close out the day, and got more than I had anticipated. It had a good aroma, mostly with fruity malt, with noticeable pear notes, and some yeastiness. The color was a rich gold, that was mostly clear, with an average-sized foamy white head. The flavor was mostly sweet, only slightly bitter and sour. It had a lively mouthfeel, with a good fizzyness and wetness.
