This was tolerable I guess. It really didnt show much Belgian character, surprise. Poured clearer than I was expecting. Moderately earthy and hoppy in the nose and flavor. Some sweetness. Just not much going on.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
POURS A COPPER COLOR. IT IS A BIT TO HOPPY FOR A PALE ALE. A LITTLE DISAPPOINTING AND IT SHOULD NOT HAVE BELGIUM IN ITS NAME BECAUSE BELGIUM IT DEFINITELY IS NOT. OK IF FOR FREE BUT I WOULD NEVER BUY IT.

Bottle shared by lithy. Poured orange with a thin off-white head. Decent hop aroma with some spices, butter, and corn backing. Sweet malt flavor with some light spices. Light body. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper color. Good dose of cascade in the nose. Flavor is decent, but after taste is awful. Close to being good, but not there.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours copper brown very little head dissipates right away Smells overly malty no real hop aroma Taste is overly carbonated lots of malt some grain Not very yeasty Drinkable yet too carbonated Fair effort but Id rather have a different brand Belgian if I had the choice
I apologize for the lack of punctuation but rate beer is being a pain in the ass lately so I really have no choice Apparently commas and periods are too much for the website to process at this point

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light amber with average head. Aroma is soapy, with some light malt and grain. Flavor stronger with hop, malt, and yeast, also some citrus notes. Decent brew, quite drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Nose is soap-heavy laundry detergent anise and candied/perfumed floral notes. Body is light, effervescent, refreshing, moderately smooth. Flavor is lightly sweet cane sugar and floral notes up front but quickly turns to sour, offensive fusel/stewed celery on the back. As expected. Belgian ale rating #100.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very predictable hoppy flavor with consistent results. This is a good offering to get people interested in craft beers. Fairly spicy for a mass-produced offering. Overall pretty pleasant.
