Bottle shared thanks to xnoxhatex at Andrews Bachelor Party. Pours a cloudy yellow with a tall white head. Yeasty banana aroma with hints of clove and spice. Banana citrus and yeast flavors that are sweet and creamy. Decent beer but certainly not exceptional.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
To echo other reviews, nothing special here, straightforward Belgian style attempt. The bottle I had seemed to have oxidation problems.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fairly straightforward Belgian style by a US brewer. With some sugar. Yeast, quite secondary spice. Strong carbonation. Drinkable although nothing extraordinary.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml in Duvel glass. Pale hazy yellow with quickly disappearing white head, leaving lasting ring with large bubbles. Lemon pastry aroma. Complex flavors of confectioners sugar and tart citrus fruitiness, finishing with a spicy dryness. Excellent flavors. Medium-heavy body, and medium carbonation. An excellent tasting beer that could use a slightly livelier, lighter body. Overall, though, first class.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a hazy gold with a medium foamy white head.
Initial green apple and soft fruit blossom aroma. Very nice flavour, soft fruity with a touch of corriander. A touch of soft bitterness and a smooth sweet body that hides the 9% alc. well.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a lasting thin white head. There is a very faint aroma of green grape and yeast. The taste is fantastic - wonderful fruity sweet malt taste, light tart hops, and a wonderful warm aftertaste. Notes of grape, citrus (orange, grapefruit) and licorice and coriander. Body is chewy, carbonation excellent. An excellent, fresh tasting Belgian!
