Very approachable beer. Higher in alcohol than most beers, but not noticeable at all, which could be either good or bad. Still smooth and very pleasant. Lots of fruit tones to it, good on a warm lazy spring day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, deep gold with yellow highlights and a big, fluffy, large-bubbled (almost like soda), white head. The aroma is mostly pilsner malt with a touch of fruit (green apple). The flavor starts very crisp with a touch of acidity, a good bit of light malts, and a strong note of flowers - both from noble hops and from some yeasty esters. By mid-palate, there is some balancing bitterness and a touch of acidity (lending more green apple flavors). The finish is dry and crisp with some esters, some perfumey hop bitterness, and a light touch of residual sweetness. Throughout is a flavor of doughy yeast and the flavors described are somewhat delicate. The mouthfeel is very dry and very highly carbonated. It almost stings the front of the palate and provides some crispness that accentuates the acidity. Overall, it is very drinkable for 7%, but it isn’t that special - the flavors are too delicate: like a bland yellow lager with subtle hints of interesting Belgian abbey beer...

Bottle. Light sweet and fruity (some coriander), a little bit like champagne (but not so sour). Small white frothy head, fast disappearing; dark orange body. Light acidic start and finish, rather short duration, refreshing taste. Rather light body, dry and light watery texture, lively carbonation. Nice one for the summer.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Poured a murky tan/blonde with little head. Fruity nose of pear and fig. Yes, fig. Pear and fig carries over into taste with definite notes of fresh baked bread as well. Slightly tart but pleasant finish that’s hard to precisely define. An interesting and very enjoyable Belgian Ale.

Bottle: Poured a yellow color with a thick foamy white head. The aroma was that of coriander and wheat. The taste was wheaty with coriander and yeast, a well balanced beer. Overall, a very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a thick foamy head and nice lacing. The aroma is a spicy yeast with tons of fruity esters and a little coriander. The flavor is really refreshing. Lots of apple skin, banana, clove, and toffee. A pretty sweet flavor, but not too sweet. The palate was pretty nice as well. A thin carbonation but it was pretty creamy. Enjoyable, especially for the price I got it.
