On tap. a light yet slightly sharp aroma. Typical Belgian taste good enough but not especially unique. Almost a wheat taste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a smallish white head. Yawn. Aroma was stale cheesy farts, some hop and yeast. Not the nicest. Some grassy hop in the flavour, but a nasty metallic twang was evident that blighted this for me. Somewhat lager like in character and very disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at papago... crystal clear gold color with a small white head. not a whole lot going on in the aroma... mostly yeast with grass, earth and some faint spiciness. flavors of yeast, spice, grape-like sweetness with a dry twig-like bitterness on the finish. as it warms a "corked wine" aroma and flavor appear... very odd. medium body with low carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured like apple cider from the tap at Papago -- completely devoid of carbonation or foam. Apple, pear, and faint chardonnay grapes on the nose. Nectar mouthfeel with the sweetness of syruppy pear. Slightly tart finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yellow-brown-orange body with a yellow white head which is medium-large. Spicy champagne nose that includes gasoline or some type of liquid chemical toward the back. which is more pronounced as the beer warms. Flavor has a lot of citrus up front - yeast, bread dough. Finish is a bit sour.

On tap @ the brewery, last year. Golden colour, white head. Aroma of fruits and hops. Flavour is light, somewhere in between a Leffe blond and a Straffe Hendrik. Soft sweetness, a little dry. Metallic. OK.

not a bad beer at all. Shits on most beers thats for sure. Malty with a mettalic aftertaste. Head diminishes pretty quickly though. Had this one on tap and is a nice amber colour. Reccomended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a cloudy blonde color with an off white head. Aroma was subdued and malty with a bit of a sourness to it. Flavor was also a bit sour, but did not get in the way, of the sweet candy sugar and spices that this beer has. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(330 ml bottle (marked 4/09) from Tully’s) Pours somewhat cloudy bronze-ish amber with three fingers of puffy off-white head. Lots of chunks in the bottle. Aroma is kind of light candy-sweet, a touch fruity but not really a whole lot going on. Mouthfeel is quite soft and light but a touch fizzy as well. Fine sheets of lacing. Flavor is a bit yeasty with some candyish malt sweetness and light fruitiness. Has a more bitter finish than normal for a Belgian. Has a bit of a metallic note. Fair.
