COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
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.

riversideAK (6079) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Light yeasty aroma with some skunkiness. Pours a hazy gold with a big bubbly head and lots of visible carbonation. The flavor tasted like a mix of generic Belgian Ale and Heineken. Was very carbonated and easy to drink, but was too skunky and somewhat metallic to be very enjoyable.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
Bottle poured into Tulip glass. Pours with a huge head. Cloudy & golden. Indeterminate fruity aroma. Flavor less pronounced at first: slightly grapey, moderately sweet, with a slightly dry & hoppy ending. Prickly carbonation, & rather thick in the mouth. Good drinking, but not magical.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle & Tap. Whatís to say about this beer? Itís a nice light, easy drinking Belgian ale. At about $7 a six pack, itís a go to session beer that I often pick up. Not a mind blowing ale by any means, but itís simple and tasty.

FatPhil (13313) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2007
330ml bottle (Poirotti, Helsinki) Orange, small head. Heavy dense savoury aroma at first (though after sitting a while), but also some light notes too. Taste is both very light and also pleasantly hoppy. Grapey aroma, white grapes, in the taste too. When warmed and CO2 shaken out with a bit of swirling, the mouthfeel is smooth and tempting - a perfect example of Belgian excellence.

glennmastrange (2623) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Tap. Malt smells of light cereal, hops of moderate lemon, yeast has notes of light earth and mustiness, and there was white wine and pear in the background. Head is very small, wispy, white, with good lacind and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear amber. Flavor starts very lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, watery, and has a lively carbonation. It finished fairly dry. I liked the digestif qualities of the beer.

demitriustown (1184) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2007
12 oz bottle: Aroma is yeast, cloves, orange, almost hefewiezen like in the aroma category. Pours a clear golden color with a huge , but not all foam white head that doe not move from the top of the glass. Taste is got some definite banana notes, wheat, yeast still, and the clove intermingles quite well. palate is tingling on the tongue and a rather lightly sweet aftertaste. Overall, Itís a decent brew. Itís nothing to go out and get right away, but a solid belgian all around.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 3, 2007
Tap at Brasserie du Marche, Espalion, France: Clear gold with a classic fluffy white head. Pleasant spicy fake bananas in the nose, and a good whack of wheaty bite followed by a late banana hit on the palate. A nice bit of bite to the finish too. Very refreshing.
