This is an enjoyable Belgian Ale, but there’s little to distinguish it from the other thousands of these here in northern France. It pours a transparent gold, the alcohol is well hidden in the nose and in the taste. It is mostly malty, very carbonated, and a bit watery. Most of these Belgians have a bit of what one could perhaps describe as "saltiness" in the finish.

(bottle) Bottle conditioned? Well, there is almost no trace of sediment; a bit sweetish, has a good spicy character that makes it interesting.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2005
A Mes rate: Not really my thing at all but for what it is I think it’s fairly decent. On the darker side of golden. Melon and banana in the malty aroma. Toffee flavour with a very slight tartness that is a plus point. Nice crisp finish. Not bad.

Deep blond colour, average white head, spicy aroma, some hops and yeast. taste smouth, but a bit metallic. Dry bitter aftertaste.

Golden with white head. Fruits and honey in the aroma. The flavour is dominated by honey but also contain some caramel.

Thanks Matt. However, I could have lived without this one. Huge creamy white head with a hazy straw colored body. Excellent lacing. The aroma is corny, skunky, and sour. Perhaps a bad bottle? Anyway, the flavor almost comes off as stale and yeasty. Light Belgian yeast spiciness. The palate is medium bodied and boring. Swing and a miss...

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Bottle at Addison Oktoberfest. Very foamy head on a honey body. Nose-spicy like a good Belgian, bready, some banana and clove. Taste-metal, sharp, some light banana, yeast. Really nothing about this stands out.

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2005
light golden color w/ a large white head well laced. Smells sour w/ hints of some stale sugars and corn. palate is over carbonated and odd. Flavor is not very good budwieser plus candied sugars... no good. Thanks for sharing I guess Matt.

harrisoni (13570) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2005
50cl bottle from Carrefour. Golden beer with thin white head. Some yeast/citrus/candy sugar/caramel aromas. Not great in mouth with over carbonation. Slightly metallic. Candy sugar dominates then harsh hops. Not a good construction and poor balance

This one is tough because I’ve had different experiences without. However, let get on w it. Golden appearence, average head. Fermented pea-ish aroma with a delicate and semiintertwinedscent of tropical fruits. It goes down easy and leaves quite a nice yeasty feeling in the mouth.
