Pours a caramel color. Smell is of fruits, malts. Taste is of spices, fruits, a bit malty. Overall an easy drinking and enjoyable beer.

On tap at the Avery 12th anniversary party. What a pleasant surprise. Copper with a white head, this beer has a hoppy aroma - slightly grapefruity with a hint of mint. Somewhat spicy. Taste is cripsy and mellow. Not much of the hops makes it into the taste. Not that that’s a bad thing for this beer. Very dry feel, rather like champagne. Kinda of a crispy, malty champagne. I liked it.

Poured a dark amber with a clear body that leaves a tan head. The nose is caramel, roasted nuts, cooked sugar, hops, and wheat fresh grass. The taste starts tart with a wheat twang that is followed by a heavy malty caramel background that evolves to a slightly toasted nutty feel on the palate and finishes again tart, it also has a little hop bitterness for balance but just enough, and ends a little boozey within that malty background. Quality brew from Avery!

Not really a belgian beer drinker, however, I enjoyed this one on a hot summer day. Pour was a golden amber hue with a lighter head. Aroma was somewhat sweet with some fruit (couldn’t quite discern specifically). Light on the aftertaste which was quite pleasant. Loved it as did those I shared it with.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Great beer when you can find it. I tend to stock up whenever I see it available. One of the few beers my wife likes as well.

The place that I got this beer from mislabeled it as an IPA. This isn’t an IPA, now that I know it; it’s very drinkable and smooth; a beer that I’ll keep stocked as much as possible!

Simplistic in the way that it was probably intended. Do wish that it had a tad more funk. As is, perhaps all TOO easily quaffable. Took some to my company picnic and the 6pk disappeared between myself and a friend. Mmmmm

12 oz. bottle. Poured the color of an old penny with a large frothy off-white head, mostly diminishing. Excellent lacing. There’s not a lot to the aroma, but what’s there is good. Lightly hoppy, some yeast and fruity stuff, all pretty calm. Flavor is barely sweet, lightly bitter with an average length lightly bitter finish. Light to medium body, smooth mouthfeel, lively carbonation. I must say that it’s nice to see that Avery doesn’t have to go over the top with everything. I found this beer to be truly enjoyable, highly drinkable, and quite refreshing in its simplicity. This is not a complex brew at all, but it’s straight up good without any of the fancies that get ’em rated higher. Rated higher on the "overall" because this beer just feels good without me being able to justify that feeling on the other scores. I’ll certainly drink this again.

This is a very pleasing beer. Pours a clear golden copper with a fluffy off-white head. There is the nice aroma of fruits and yeast, with notes of caramel and spice. There is a little funk in the nose that is nice. The taste is of sweet malts and fruits. There is a little, LITTLE,spice and bitterness in the finish. An easy light body drinker. Overall a nice American take on a Belgian style ale.

Hazy medium amber color with thick foamy beige head and lots of lacing. Yeasty aroma with hints of orange; reminiscent of a Belgian White. Wheat taste is clearly evident with enough hops to balance it out nicely. Creamy mouthfeel with a tang of carbonation. Overall a very nice ale.
