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.

I never would have described it as Metallic, but Piscator hit it on the head. Man he’s good. I find a lot of Belgian ales taste like that.

hayduke (3776) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2009 Poured a cloury yellow with an average sized head and excellent lacing. Nose was a nutty malts with lots of other aromas of citrus, spices, banana, and flowers. Fairly complex. Mouthfeel was medium and a touch astrigent, with a slight metallic zing. Flavors are of yeasts, spices, lemon, ahd very mild hops. Short finish. Overall I found this to be a very drinkable beer.

probstblueribbon (3324) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2007
330 mL bottle from LCBO. Served cold in a tulip glass. MR 01/07

App.: Cloudy orange-golden, full off-white, foamy head. Aroma: Honey, citrus, sweet and spicy, yeast and bread dough, a little cheesy “stank”. Palate: Medium body, a touch astringent, somewhat effervescent carbonation. Flav.: Spicy, floral, honey, a little sweet, a bit of lemon, a bit of lingering mouth-coating.

Not bad, not mind-blowing.
