Pours a pale golden with short lived bright white head. Honey like nose with fruits and the distinct Belgian yeast. Pear and apple flavors mixed with floral notes. Not sweet, just like fine dry white wine. The flavors are laid back, making this more delicate. very good.

750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a lasting off white head. Aromas of straw, pine, earthiness, spicy hops, yeast, melon, citrus and light mint. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, yeast, lemon zest and white pepper with a crisp dry bitter lingering white pepper finish.

750ml corked and caged bottle, shared with Katie, Katie, and my sister. Mildly hazy yellow / orange color. Good white head. Some lace. Decent hoppy aroma, light metallic, bit of soap. Light, more crisp belgian-style carbonation. More dry finish. Light bitter, good zestiness. Decent, respectable golden ale. Katies liked it significantly better than the Wittekerke Winter White they were drinking prior to this.

Ernest (6485) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, husks), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with notes of gum/banana, alcohol, cement. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, husky, unclean. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Ugh...really, really husky in both nose and mouth. Not very clean either. Not much going on in the nose, even the hops in this "quadruple hopped" beer are mild. A dumper.

bhensonb (11796) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours brass with a 4 finger creamy/frothy white head. Which proceeded to ring lace decently with time. Aroma has lots of floral, some herb/spice, and banana ester. Amazing, considering all that foam. So floral it brought my childhood bubblebath powder to mind. Med + body. Flavor is floral, yeast/spice, and banana ester, tho not quite so much as the aroma suggested. It pretends to be sweet, but there’s enough hop in it to render it "almost dry" and pleasingly bitter. That floral really kicks in again in the finish. This is a delight to drink.

pivnizub (9153) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle: deep golden, big loose rocky foam, that slowly collapses, fruity-orangey nose with a shy hoppy bitterness underneath; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied; shorter fruity bitter-sweet finish, supported by some lonely hops.O.K., the usual Belgian fizz...

chinchill (2453) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 High carbonation with a light, but not watery, body. Semi-dry finish. Generally very good flavor, if a bit too sour in the aftertaste.
