[1882-20081205] Tap. Mild fruitiness in the aroma, not much there. Slightly hazy, light orange brown body with no head. Lots of heavy malt and yeast flavour but has a fruity lightness overall. Medium-full body. Nice and fruity.

A very flavorful grand cru. There is quite a mix of flavors here from dark fruits to bitter spices. It is almost over the top and finishes very strong.

Tap at Bar Great Harry. Huge, lovely head on the pour. Some think it may be infected. So be it. The light acidity in this was wonderful, reminiscent of some Jolly Pumpkin efforts. Aroma has sour tangerine, green apple and radish. The flavor is a bit thin, mild wheat and basil, much like a heavy Berliner Weisse. Touches the tongue gently and goes down smooth. They should consider souring this on purpose.

Draft at BGH. Banana orange color with a gigantic head and lasting lace. Aroma is tart with citrus tangerine. Flavor is similar to a creamsickle, with orange and vanilla. I’m not sure this is supposed to be so acidic.

On tap at NABC
Slightly cloudy gold color with a light and thin head. Yeasty and fruity on the nose, with hints of orange and banana. Same fruits in the taste, but there was also a slightly floral component to it. Off-dry for a beer. Very smooth and moderately heavy mouth feel. Overall a good if not amazing BSA.

Tapped into a goblet. A beautiful golden color that was moderately translucent.
Don’t remember much of the aroma however the taste was good. It is a very smooth Belgian style with little of the sourness found in similar styles I’ve tried.
Overall a good beer.

2008-12-06. Murky pastel gold body (Freshly tapped?) with a modest white head. (3+) Sweetish aroma, light yeast and esters over sweet malt. (7+) Sweetish flavour, light alcohol, sweet fruity esters with a touch of banana that may be my imagination. (7+) Smooth average plus palate. Pretty decent. <i>On tap at Coles, Buffalo</i>

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint pour at Mugs. Looks very hazy and thick glowing golden with little clarity. Aroma first starts with spiky esters which are very earthy and herbal lemon-esquw. Maybe its mixing with coriander, or it is coriander or the esters are mimicking coriander, not sure. Though I understand if people interpreted as solvent-like but I enjoyed it. Taste is some banana esters and again some coriander. This is accompanied by a thicker body with a good strong carbonation. I was surprised by this beer, a light yeast doughiness is present throughout. Basically, a tart, twangy, sweet, Belgian mix.
