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.

Pungent, spicy nose. Pours slightly cloudy gold with a firm, beaten egg head. Flavour is sweet and dry in balance, with some coriander and fresh tangy fruit (maybe a berry or lychee?). Finish is toffee popcorn and other sweet malt characters that last and last. A little bit of acidity detracts, but not by much, and over all this is a good un.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Pours a light golden hue, very thick, long lasting head. Very gasy, and yeasty. Nice crisp palate with hints of citrus and a yeasty touch. Long, smooth pleasant after taste. Recommended for fans of Belgian Ales.

whiffs of lemon spice, something floral in nose. as it settles into pillows of white plumes its gold sparkling color invites another sip. flavour begins sweet like rock candy, then rolls into its pilsner malt backbone, silky smooth with a not so subtle corriander bite that balances the sweetness. hides the alcohol notes well but you know after a couple of these you’ll feel no pain. Overall this is a consistant pleasure to drink, full yet quenching with its earth tones and luminous beauty.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2006
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Light amber colour with a great white head. Lovely aroma of spices sort as vanilla and coriander, yeast and a sweet dryness too. Also flavour of spices, yeast and ends up quite bitter, not as good as it smells.

thegreenrooster (3341) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Pour is a golden with a big white head. Aroma is small but there are some yeast and vanilla. Flavor is very nice lots of clove, vanilla and banana. Everything you would want in a Belgian is in this beer and is is a bit on the cheap side for a import.

vyvvy (4178) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Pours clear blonde with a with a white frothy head. Aroma is fairly light - what is there is some banana and cloves, lightly roasted malt and a bit of earthiness. Medium body with a bit of a slick feel with frothy carbonation. Taste is grainy with some cloves. Finish is spritzy and sour. A good beer

sanmiguel (118) - Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottled. No skunky scent which afflicts most imported beers. It had a little too much carbonation, in my opinion; but had a crisp, citrus, malty and hoppy taste. Excellent after-taste. Recommended.

Beerdedone (2785) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours clear golden with a decent sized white head, aroma of citrus, belgian spices, sweet malts. Flavor is carbonated, orange peel citrusy flavor, some bitter hops are present, doesn’t mask the alcohol well, how ever good body, and still a good brew

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 9, 2006
On tap at the Toronado. Rich gold in color with a thing white head. Awesome lacing. This is similar to a sweet fruity cider. Apples, pears, orange. It’s all here. Sweet, but not overly. Clean finish. Drying at the end. The typical medicinal belgian yeast byproduct flavor is quite muted. This was a hit with the colleague beside me at the bar who probably drinks 2 beers a year. I liked it also, but for completely different taste reasons. He thought I was insane when I proclaimed "bubblegum!"
