Thanks for this beer, pintbypint. Poured a bright gold with a gigantic head. Luckily I had a very large tulip for this task. The aroma is glazed donuts with bananas and some cinnamon. There is also some mango. The taste is sweet bananas with some fairly strong spice of cinnamon and black pepper. There is also some fresh potatoes. I woudl liek this with about any food.

(bottle) Pale orange colour with firm rocky head with nice lace. Fruity aroma with orange peels and yeast. Flavour is initially sweet and becomes a bit alcoholic at the end. Sweet malty taste with a rather dry finish. This Belgian Ale is ok, but could be better balanced.

Brad (364) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2005
A slightly darker golden color tinted with a slight orange. Some very fine sediment can be seen floating in the glass, head was near white and diminished at a modest pace. Aromas were definately fruity (bananas, yellow apple, maybe pear) and sweet (brown sugar, honey). Flavor was a balanced between an overall smoothness and a slight alcohol touch. Finished slightly dry and astringent.

Great warm weather beer. Good, simple, straightforward. Very light and crisp, like the flavor that Budweiser goes for. High alcohol content is barely noticeable (except when you get drunk).

Bottle. Malty aroma. Almost clear golden colour. Big stable head. Semi-fruity flavour. Peppery, harsh bitterness.

Schioth (41) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
25 cl. bottle. Aroma a little disappointing. Average appearance. Mediocre flavor with much too short finish. Overall, very average.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2005
This poured a hazy yellow with a decent enough head - if only it stayed a while. It has a very yeasty, fruity aroma with a large dollop of honey. Quite spritzy in the mouth. The flavor is straightforward, sweet malt with alcohol. Not bad, but I probably won’t be repeating this one.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 20, 2005
Very attractive yellow pour with a substantial white frothy head, aroma is fruity, yeasty spicey. Nice collection of fruity malt flavors, perhaps pear/apple, sweet with a nice balance of spice. Well rounded mouthfeel, finish is sweet with spice though clean. Not real complex but very drinkable and refreshing, enjoyed this very much.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 18, 2005
Pours clear yellow with big creamy full lasting white head. Dry yeasty aromas. Smooth rich malty flavor with interesting yeast profile. Slight alcohol warmth. Nice smooth easy drinking abbey. Very mellow and delectable.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
Pleasant medium-gold with touches of burnt orange; minimal head retention. Heavy alcohol on the nose despite the relatively minor 6.8% alc./vol., plus interesting layers of orange and orange zest, banana, bran bread and rain water. Banana leads the way in the flavour department, followed by bitter alcohol and a peculiar trace of sweet potato. The distasteful bitter alcohol persists on an almost indefinite finish, leaving a negative final impression to what was a fairly interesting brew.
