Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is yeasty, vanilla and corriander. Flavor is fruity to start out then comes some herbal tea and a decent hop backbone. Finish has some honey and spice. I quite liked this one. Had all the fruity, yeasty things you look for in a Belgian but with low alcohol.

bhensonb (11064) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy orange gold with a 3 finger collapsing whiteish head. There’s a strong citrus, light stone fruit aroma. Backed by some earthiness and yeast/spice. Full bodie - cause of the carb. Flavor is spice/yeast, banana, light stone fruit, touch of barnyard. This is delicious. Obviously very, very underrated. There is a tendency towards cod liver oil towards the finish, but a sophisicated palate welcomes the new.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Appearance: dirty orange, straw, and hay. Off white head with pith tinges laces the sides of my glass permanently. Swirls with a nice head while a slow stream of bubbles make their way to the surface.
Nose: orange pith, orange rind, green leaves, key lime. Overall gentle earthiness; burlap sacks, dusty blankets. Tree branches with woodiness underneath.
Palate: smooth bready mouthfeel which lingers atop my tongue – sweet breads. Fresh oranges and apricots, juicy then fleshy without the dry inner pith and stringy veins. Very clean and well attenuated; lacks the bubbly effect despite her appearance. Juicy apple flesh. Greenness underneath and along the edges; fruit stems. Must and dusty blankets are a shadow, barely discernable but there for those lucky enough to spot it.
Final Thoughts: thanks to my sister and momster for picking out yet another fabulous beer. A solid Belgian treat, she didn’t blow my tastebuds away but neither were there any complaints either.

drfabulous (3990) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 22, 2011
750 from Wine and Cheese Place. Yeast/banana flavor. Nice orange body. While it may not wow you as a Belgian, a very tasty and drinkable beer. Belgian pale ale driven by yeast. I get that nice yeasty burp that Belgian style needs to deliver.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2011
Darker blond golden coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a small white head. Loevely fresh yeasty hoppy aroma with touches of fruits and flowers. Full almost creamy palate. Finish is bitter yeasty with some fruity hoppy and creamy hints. Very nice brew.
