COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
Bright, yellow-golden with a firm, dense head. Natural carbonation and a carefully balanced aroma of fresh bread, banana spice, citrus and hints of vanilla.
A smooth taste. Malty, nutty softness followed by the roundess of tropical fruit and then a dry, light bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth, round mouth-feel. A bright, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

Pours a clear bright orange color with a huge amount of froathy offwhite head. Aroma is flowers, dough, cloves, and a bit of lemon/banana mix. Flavor is a bit dry and tart. Much more bitter and acidic than most belgians. Some spiced banana doughiness too. Overall, pretty good.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Peppery clove doughy nose. Deep yellow-gold with a hint of orange, had a frothy sea foam head that lasted forever. Honey sweet, some sour notes and noticeable hop bitterness. Lighter bodied, huge bubbles, but the finish is smooth and lasted forever. Really nice beer.

mjs (6395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2008
(Bottle at Poirotti on 2008-04-25) Light amber and clear. Big white head. Fruity nose with some yeast. Medium palate with some acidiness. Hop bitterness is the first thing in taste. Then quite a bit yeast and a little bit sweetness. Perhaps too yeasty.

Nice sweetened yellow, fluffy head. The sweetnes is balanced through some longing flower taste.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Hazy golden pour. The first impression is a very fruity yeasty nose...promising enough. The flavors are fruity/yeasty, citrus(lemon), rich sweet (honey, candi sugar?) maltiness, and a following herbal hop bite in the finish. This is a really fun beer. A lot going on, but not at all intimidating or overly complex.

andyblaz (7) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2008 does not count
Eh, what can I say. Poured 2 fingers of foam in a tulip. Smells a little like wet dog but mostly bready with some fruit. Has the classic Belgian ’hot’ yeasty flavor. A little bit sour which made it interesting. Doesn’t quite do it for me though, I’m not a fan of the perfume/soapy flavors. My buddy really likes lychee/bubblegum type yeast (which is what this reminds me of) but I’m more of a fan of the citrus/ fruit type... Still a very good beer overall.

Pours a cloudy blond with quickly dissipating head. Mild aroma. Mine had a slightly metallic tinge in taste. Typical Belgian flavours, not too bitter, a bit sweet. Decent but nothing outstanding compared to many of it’s counterparts.
