Hazy golden colour with large white head. Something slightly unpleasant in the aroma, solventy, also yeast and citrus. Fruity, pears, melon, citrus, slightly bitter taste, again with something unpleasant in there. Not for me.

Fruity citrus aroma, bread and yeast, light chalky hops. A bit sweet, mild alcohol. Cloudy pale amber with big white foamy lacing head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts with mild sweetness, neutral fruit, some pears. Alcohol flavor, light acidity, and mild bitterness. Bitter citrusy flavor throughout, grassy too. After is mild astringent bittersweetness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Very hazy, pale yellow color with a smallish head. Somewhat alcoholic, lemony, grassy and toffeeish aroma. Sweetish, lemony, witbierish flavor with licorice hints. Some yeast, acidity and fruitiness. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated and alcoholic palate. A disappointment compared to Augustijn. Quite easily drinkable, though.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2006 This is a truly marvelous beer. One of my staples at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh. Sampled again on draft this brew pours a straw yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with just a hint of a pleasant sour tang. The flavor is sweet and tangy with a light fruit flavor that yields to a yeastiness on the finish. There is a rather thick mouthfeel. Overall one of my favorite Belgian drafts.

Big, silky foam caressing your lips, great licorice + citrus notes. A very drinkable beer that reminds me quite a bit of Floreffe Blonde. I’d get it again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled: Pale yellow coloured. Clear. White fluffy medium lasting head. Fruits (apple) and alcahol in aroma and flavour. Is light spiced. Pretty one dimensional and boring. Wouldn’t bother to buy it.

Pours straw/amber and hazy. Medium sized small beaded head. Stewed pear and simple syrup, yeast, spice and toast in the aroma. Herbal and pears again in the flavour. Earth and bready malts. I found that the finish was full of limes. Unfortunately it was a little gritty. Nice beer.

Aromas of yeast, lemon, peach and malt. Light amber, pours a huge billowy white head, pretty lace as well. Flavours of malt, lemon, peach and a lovely breadiness.Full bodied, well balanced, such a dry finish. Very fine example!
