Pours a murky yellow. Big head in a Belgian glass. Aromas of straw, yeast, slight citrus and a little bit of lemon zest. Initial taste is of yeast, floral, herbal and smooth. Mouthfeel is tangy but easy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a swirl of bread dough, biscuit, plum and faint clove. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor is a bittersweet medley of fruitcake and cookie dough. Finishes crisp and bready with mild, lingering bitterness.

It is a long story about how i ended up with this beer and i blame felton for bogarting a much more rare beer and sticking this one in my bag. Pours a clear yellow with a big frothy white head. Nice fruit and spice and hops and sweetness. This is a pretty well balanced beer. Banana flavors followed up with some grassy hops and a bit of sweet malt tying it all together. Had low expectations but am pleasantly surprised.

Location/Date:Draft at Mussel Bar, 11/22/2011.
Appearance: Pours a nice yellow haze.
Taste: Mild hop, some citrus to it, maybe a hint of sour.
Palate:Medium light body, slight after, a little bit more boozy than expected..
Summary: I enjoyed this Belgian ale, it’s not as sweet as others and a little bit more alcohol forward on the end, but altogether nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge, fluffy, whipped-eggwhitelike, yellowish head, leaving lacerings over bright, if veiled orange beer. Herbal, garden herbs and malty nose, fresh-smelling. Light-bitterish citrus, very yeasty flavours, estery; finish is herbal-bitterish. Slight, near-hidden restsweetness with flavours of mandarine- or curaçaopeel. Medium bodied, quite slick, and head texture present throughout. Quite good beer... Txs to K.! 27 Unitedstaters and 1 Québecois, would appear I really got hold of a rare one! The Ursel Connection...

25.4 oz bottle. Foggy gold with a slowly receding fluffy white head. Lacy rings remain. An extra point for the cool label. Nose is banana, toffee and marshmallow with hints of citrus. Bubbly medium body, a tad oily. Taste is lemon, bubblegum and grass. Nice bitter finish with some grapefruit. Very quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Moderate malt and hop aromas of grain, straw and lemon, light to moderate dough for the yeast, with a big dose of ripe pear and hints of white wine, coriander and other light spices in the background. Head is large, frothy, white with fair lacinf and is mostly diminishing. Color is murky amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a carbonation between lively and fizzy. Nice aromas, light on flavor, but overall this is a pretty good Belgian Ale.
