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.

23/05/06 Almost golden body, almost compact head but fairly lasting. Nothing really stands out, sweet with some spice, easy to drink though.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 25cl bottle, 6.7%, courtesy of ozujsko (thanks!)
This poured a lovely, clear deep golden colour, with a medium sized white fluffy head that went away at a medium pace. The nose is very hefeweizenish, yeasty, kinda fruity, yet dry, with distinct notes of banana, bubblegum and cloves. Nice. The taste is a bit of a letdown, yeasty/spicey, sweet, cloves, banana and bubblegum again, some metallic hints with a low key, but persistent hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite interesting, good even, better than Leffe Blonde, but not flashy. I could swear this has wheat in it... The bottle looked different than the picture here, so i guess it’s the french "version"....

Bottle. A cloudy amber coloured pour with a large head. A musty, hoppy aroma with hints of banana. The taste has more hops and banana with some sweet malts in the finish. High carbonation. Nice.

Bottle. Like most people I found it to be pretty average. Pretty good hop dryness and clean malt taste, but has an unpleasing aftertaste.

A slightly above average Belgian brew. Blended fruit aromas and minimal head. Decent.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2007 Bottle. Cloudy blond colour. Tastes of fruit, spice, yeast. Nice sour bite in the after taste. Good Brew! I had to re-rate, I must have had a bad bottle the last time I tried it .

yngwie (14762) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2006
Bottled. Slightly hazy, golden beer with an off-white head. Malt, cellar and fruits in the aroma. Some metal too. The flavor starts with some alcohol, then spices, malt and hops. Medium body and a dry finish. Ok, it’s better than the regular Norwegian pilsner, but when compared to other Belgians, it doesn’t stand out from the crowd. (060623)
