This style originated in Belgium to compete with the pilsners from Czechoslovakia, Germany, and Poland. It is a fruity ale with very strong carbonation, with complex, spicy flavors like cloves.

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 (4919) - 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.

12 ounce single bottle from Food Lion in Huntersville, NC. Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with no head and minimal white lacing. Aroma is coriander and yeast notes. The Palate is medium-to-full bodied, round, and mouth-filling, but with nice malts. Not bad, but nothing special.

Pint at Doherty’s Irish pub in Cary. Ok aroma, sweet, yeasty. Light toasted malt, little orange, banana. Clove. Clean golden orange color. Good that faded to a foam top. Spotty lace. Sweet flavor. Lighter body, smooth mouthfeel , sweet finish. It’s fine, not gonna wow, but drinks easy enough.
