2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fairly disappointing, all fluffly and light without much aroma or flavor. It’s a slightly hazed gold with a foamy head. It smells of yeast and a very light, pale malt. The flavor has a little citric tartness added to it and it has a dry finish. Whoopty-doo.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tap at the brewery. Golden color with floaters. No haze. Light carbonation. Leafy nose. A slightly skunky flavor. Not one of the better Belgians.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
11.2oz bottle, Notched @ February 2009. Pours a hazy golden with many floaty chunks and a three finger fizzy white head. Aroma of some dusty hops, mild oxidation, doughy yeast, spice, a bit of lemon and banana. Pretty sweet smelling. Up front is an off taste that I can’t describe--kind of overly sweet and past its prime old--with some paper and a dry finish. Highly carbonated, lighter in body. Not too good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home. Orange, skunky taste. Sweet and citrusy. Spicy. Much carb, in the mouthfeel. Fair enough.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - unfiltered. A dry pale ale with spice notes from the yeast. Moderate carbonation. So dry this could be a strong lager. The interest comes from the yeast notes. The malt is too clean to be interesting, and the hops are lager hops and quite dull. Faint citric notes. Less than average beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Never knew this existed until found one at my company party. Boy was I surprized. Looks like any other pale yellow american beer. Aroma of yeast and when you taste it, it’s a bit bitter initially but not terribly. Regular beer flavor, nothing really different that I could pick out. Could be a bit less offensive on the taste buds. Nice tingly carbonation that picks at the back of your tongue. Finish is not real offensive but does linger for a while.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a huge white head. Fresh citrus, orange peel and yeast aroma. Taste is sweet, spicey and fruity with lemon, fresh yeast and a light bitter and dry finish. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Drank on tap at Kafe Belgie, Utrecht. Blond Belgian Ale with a nice colour and average size of head. It tasted a bit like a Belgian white instead of an Ale, due because of the citrus aroma and fresh taste. Will drink this again.
