Draft at Benelux. Pretty hefty with the hops for a belgian pale, with the belgian yeast in the finish for a nice balance.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Yellow coloured body. very yeasty taste, that’s it and uninteresting, getting no fruit. Lighter than average mouthfeel. Carbonation is right there. Yeasty aroma. A little spice would be nice.Best thing I can say is that its drinkable and not too sweet.

SlovakSniper (2811) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
Une robe orangée et passablement troublée. Un col mousseux mince qui laisse des traces derrière son passage. Un nez bien Belge avec des fruits à chair jaune et une fine couche d’épices. Une base maltée qui rappelle le sucre candi. Des saveurs plus ou moins intéressantes, pour le moins douces et très peu remuées par les houblons. Une levure peu expressive, quelque peu étrange. Un aspect fortement poussiéreux. Un corps plutôt mince, un pétillement normal et une texture à la limite crémeuse. Une finale amère et cendrée : étrange. À revisiter.

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Hazy blonde pour. The aroma is little bit sweet and slightly estery. Light fruit and some banana. Rich sweet Belgian malt with a little bit of graininess showing. Light spice - decent if by the numbers.

douglas88 (5556) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a copper color with a large white head. A sweet spicy nose, some earthy notes. The flavor is a smooth earthy spicy brew, some dusty leaves, caramel, yeasty. Nice.

JulienHuxley (2515) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Peach colored pour with nice white head. Good explosive aroma of belgian yeast, peaches and peppery hops. Taste is quite sweet and fruity, nice belgian ale yeasty flavors. Palate is well carbonated but quite smooth and easy drinking. Fine BA

rodenbach99 (2968) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2010
Un verre sur place. Bière ambrée, belle translucidité peu de mousse. Au nez plusieurs arômes se dégagent avec des effluves de pêches et un peu de levure. En bouche la bière est agréable. passablement légère avec de petite note d’épices. Peu de gaz carbonique en bouche ce qui la rend un peu plat. Somme toute une belle bière. 6/10

Amber color, with a white head, yeasty, fruity nose with some apricot, peach, tangerines esters, with a mild sweet biscuity, toasted malt note, and faint floral hop spicy citrusy accent in the aroma follows through on a belgian yeasty, fruity, earthy pale, toasted, caramel malt character, with a light flowery hop citrusy, leafiness, leading towards a lingering hop leafy dryness finish.
