COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balanced and refreshing (6.8%)

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 brigh, refreshing finish. the final note on swirling has stronger notes of banana, yeasty spice and a hoppy aroma.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Poured a strongly effervescent golden with a large fluffy white head. Strong aroma of grassy noble hops, pear juice, orangey citrus and some alcohol dryness. Flavor is light and refreshing toffee, lemony acidity, some light grassiness. Flavor becomes a bit more muddled on successive tastes. Finishes vinous and slightly dry. Body is light and lively. Sort of a toned down version of a generic Belgian Strong ale. Very drinkable and refreshing, while retaining enough complexity to remain interesting.

Stefano (1891) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2006
Golden with white head. Flavour is light to moderately bitter with light acidity. A good amount of alcohol is present in the long finish which balances the sweetness. Dry bitter aftertaste.

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2006
Small offwhite head over hazy light orange body. Aroma is spicy, grassy hops, sweetish yeast with a strange, egg-like character, wood, and a whiff of licorice and terpentine, and some alcohol. Taste is quite sharp, bitter hops, somewhat acidic, spicy wood and grainy malts. Aroma is clearly better than the taste. Somewhat disappointing mouthfeel, a bit thin and lacking in body. (0.33l bottle.)

LagerHogger (12) - USA - AUG 15, 2006
From the bottle, poured into a 20oz Tulip pint glass. Pours a sort of cloudy blonde, with a nice thick head leaving a beautiful lace. The brew gives a very aromatic blend of fruit and spice. Though the taste dissipates rather quickly the flavor is rather pleasant and hoppy with hints of fruit and spice, afterwards leaving a bit of a sour and malty finish. Overall, at 6.8% a worthy brew for beer lovers the world over or anyone adventurous enough to try!

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 13, 2006
Poured from keg, a clear light amber with a thin white bubbly head. Subtle sweet fruit aroma. Good level of carbonation, with subtle fruit flavours and a dryish finish.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
330ml Bottle: Pours blond as promised with a big thick head, which quickly fell into a thin lacing across the top. Aroma of hops, grain, yeast, citrus, and something sweet I canít put my finger on. Taste is quite strong on alcohol and very hoppy, albeit not at all bitter. Definite spice, but it makes way into a somewhat unpleasant aftertaste. Not bad by any means, but not to the level Iíve come to expect from Belgium.

bluevegie (3063) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2006
23/05/06 Almost golden body, almost compact head but fairly lasting. Nothing really stands out, sweet with some spice, easy to drink though.
