This is a light bodied, Belgian golden ale. Has a dry, slightly sweet finish. Very low hopping lets the malt shine through in this unfiltered ale. Very drinkable beer! 6.8% ABV

Not sure this is the right one, they called it the belgian red...oh well...On tap at brewpub. Red-orange with a short-lasting white head. Tastes like caramel and yeast, somewhat woody. Dry, sandy herbal hops in the finish. Medium-to-strong bodied. Good ale.

From the brewpub on New York Ave, this draft pour came a slightly hazy with a white head and good lacing. Nose of ripe fruit. Light body and smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet malts with ripe fruit like the aroma. Easy drinking and quite enjoyable.

I had this beer a while back and from what I can remember I enjoyed it. I’ve had this at the pub/brewery so it was fresh. Nothing special about it is popping into my head at the moment.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2009
at inner harbor location, lightly yeasty aroma, not mcuh spice or banana, color was very pale gold, slightly cloudy, very thin white laced head, smooth and sweet flavor, lots of floral and grass tones, but not overwhelming in any one area. nicely balanced aftertaste, solid amount of body for a lighter style, overall a good session beer

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2010 (Draught, 2008 & 2009; scored the same) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grass, soap, coriander, floral, and light pepper. Flavor of mild hops (grass, orange, light herbal), coriander, and some candi sugar.

eaglefan538 (3032) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 21, 2008
On draft at the Shirlington location. Poured as expected, full golden color with a generous white head. The aroma was bananas and other fruity type esters. The flavor followed the aroma, this beer coming off like an imperial hefeweizen more than anything Belgian, with spicing and hopping elements near to nil. Mouthfeel was moderate within style.

boto (2103) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Draught @ Capitol Hill location: This was served in a chalice. It poured a cloudy, golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white head onit, that left some lacing. The aroma was nice. It had bready, yeasty notes, as well as a slight citrus aroma. The taste was a touch spicy with some coriander. Medium body with a somewhat bready taste also. A slightly tart finish. Not too bad, as I had 2.

JoeinDahlem (1456) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2008
Draft on the Hill. Golden-orange with dissipating white head. Sweetish, yeasty nose with notes of oranges and pineapple, other fruits. Moderately sweet flavor with mild bitterness and lively mouthfeel. Tasty but not really exciting.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Draft @ Downtown location. Hazy peach and wheat colored body with a white head. Semi-tart peach rind flavor, full body, chewy, thick, then peppery and fuzzy as times. Muddy wheat and light peach sweet-and-tart flavors, a little too heavy and chewy, more than it needs to be, but otherwise very drinkable.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - FEB 1, 2008
Beer on tap. Nice cloudy golden with minimal fluffy head. Aroma of fresh citrus with some flower nuance. Palate of bold citrus with wheat, middle palate of grainy-herb flavor with a sweet finish. Drinkable but perhaps preferable in the summertime.
