Aroma is grains, citrus, yeast and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is yeast, malts, a hint of citrus and a long and sugary finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from state line - foams up VERY badly while pouring, so pour slowly. Anyway, one the foam disappears, the beer is cloudy orange. Aroma is quiet purfumey which I find off putting. Overall, it’s solid, but not for me.

Bottle from state line liquors. Pours golden with a thick white head. Very fragrant nose. Smells almost like perfume. Nice and dry on the tongue. Finishes clean. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Semi-hazy golden color with a thin frothy white head. The nose is a lot of funky yeast. Lighter bodied, but complex with some caramel malts, crisp citrus and a nice hoppy finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle in a tulip. Pours golden with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, and a good amount of hops for a Belgian beer. Flavor the same, with a little light fruit and sweetness. Average texture. A pretty good Belgian beer.

Pours hazy gold into a tulip. White head with excellent retention craters leaving sea foam lacing. Sweet caramel, yeast and biscuit aromas. Dry with upfront sweet caramel turning to an very bitter, almost metallic (in a good way) lasting finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(33cl bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liquors on August 10, 2012, for $6.90. Pours a huge, yeasty head and a clouded and highly carbonated body. I was put onto these beers by Alberta’s Hoser and I am glad he did. This beer is a strong reminder of one of my favourite Belgian Ales - SAXO. It is well malted, has an overwhelming yeastiness and fruity effervescence. Its a damn fine beer... only a few shades behind Saxo.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma is dominated by yeast and wheat notes, with some light clove and candied sugar. Flavour mirrors the nose almost exactly, with the yeast dominating, with some notes of candied sugar, wheat and clove. Very high carbonation, though easy drinking nonetheless. Solid light Belgian ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy and light amber colour with an off white head. A bit fruity and moderate sweet nose. Malty background with fruity, light citric and some spicy notes in the flavour. A bit to much alcohol coming through.
