3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

(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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
