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.

Pretty good drinkable belgian with little hidden flavors. Full of carbonation. Fruity start with a very slight hop finish.I found that if you pour this in a big glass and let the head dissapate it is much better.

Poured this one into my Chimay goblet. Incredibly huge and thick dense head creeps up and it doesn’t dissipate very quickly. The color of pale gold with a TON of bubbles is the best way to describe it. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. You can almost feel the bubbles after you’ve swallowed, nearly like a pop rock sensation. Flavor is yeasty, very crisp, very clean and slightly sweet. This was enjoyable and I’d probably get it again once empty my current stock.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006
Golden colour, a little unclear, white head. Fast collapsing? Malty aroma with notes of yeast (and wheat?). Sweet flavour, malty, a touch of vanilla?, notes of (soapy?/ perfumy?) hops in the finish. Hides the ABV very well.

alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Honey color with a white head. Sweet and cpicy aroma with honey notes. Light malty flavor with spicy bitterness. Reminds me of a saison but a little heavier. Quite good.

Quevillon (2548) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 25, 2006
Une assé bonne belge, facile à boire, pas trop amère. Un petit peu plus de saveur ne fera pas mal.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2006
Bottled. Hazy orange/brownish colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma of citrus, yeast and hops. Flavour is quite strongly hopped, but still very pleasant. Malts and some acidic hints also show up. Short finish and aftertaste. Alcohol warms in the aftertaste, not while drinking. Biting carbonation and a bit oily palate, yet again papery dry afterwards.

Cloudy orange amber ale with a thick white head that lasts awhile and laces the glass. Light citrus aroma. Malty flavor with acidic hints and aftertaste.
