Peachy-orange colour, rocky head and slow, mellow carbonation makes for an impressive lead-in. The aroma shows at first white pepper, then moves on to mango, banana and sweet malt. It’s a little bit firm with white peppery alcohol notes, but this is just a foil against a lot of sweet malts. Dusty yeast notes add accent, as do light apricotty esters.

bhensonb (13862) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 25, 2006
Almost perfumy aroma of light fruits and a bit of yeast. (This one may be several years old) Nice golden color (with chunks!) and a vigorous white head that laces a bit. Starts with a light fruity flavor, develops a bit of malt, some spicey mix - light clove & cardomon? The finish is sweetish with an underlying hint of bitter. In the end the mouth is left with a very mild bitter. I’d say this light ale ages very well (in the cool dark).

mcberko (13523) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2009
Pours a golden yellow with a small off-white head. Aroma of yeast and fruit. Flavour matches, with a creamy body and medium acidity. Nothing special, but a nice Belgian.

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.

Tmoney99 (13259) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Bottle. Clear amber color with a huge frothy white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Average citrus and pine aroma. Medium body. Moderate spicy bitter flavor with medium finish. Very refreshing.
