radio_nowhere (1145) - Maryland, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle into Trappist glass, slight hazy golden color with white head. Aroma of candy sweet malt and spicy fruity Belgian yeast. Taste adds notes of pepper, coriander, clove, some fruit (melon, green apple) and slight alcohol. Light body, moderate carbonation, dry, crisp with a spicy finish. Decent Belgian, easy drinking.

Aurelius (4657) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Good label; faint mist in a straw gold beer. Dry, yeasty aroma with some sulphur. Light, savory, a little pepper, not fruity. A little citrus in the lightly bitter end. Crisp, summery. Thanks, LuckyDog.
