Serving: Draft at Roasthouse Pub. It pours an orange color with an off white head. The nose has nice florals with a touch of candy sugar. The flavor has those notes plus some honey and yeast notes. Reminds me of Saison Dupont with some honey. Light to medium body with higher carbonation leading to a short finish. Nice brew.

BelgianBeerGal (3457) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2012
Surprise draft at Thai 9 before Wicked. It was a warm day, with spicy food and this was a nice, lighter bodied thirst quencher. Cloudy amber pour with a big soapy white head. Flavors of grass and mild bitter hops. Fine if not different from "normal " Chouffe beers.

The aroma is fresh, grassy, and spicy. The color is a clear amber and it has a beutiful white head. The flavor is sweet, malty, and spicy. It ends on a dry grassy and hoppy note. The body is somewhat thin - must be because of the low ABV by Belgian standards.

(750ml) Here I sit in my 58 degree house, lacking a working furnace, the temperature 40 degrees outside, with a summer beer in hand. Hazy amber topped by medium beige head -- yeast toward the bottom of the bottle clouds the beer significantly as I continue to pour. Aroma is sweet, floral, peach, pineapple, light caramel. Taste is mild sweet, some lemon, light toffee and caramel, finishing with herbal hops. Light-medium body with some acidity. Quite drinkable -- I went through the entire bottle remarkably quickly.

omhper (21769) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2008
Bottled (1999 vintage) at Man in the Moon, Stockholm Lightly hazy amber, rich head. Surprisingly fresh floral hop aroma. Dry and very light bodied. Very light vanilla- and crackr-like malt, briefly touched by oxidized flavours of mustard and paper. Finishes with some grassy/spicy hop bitterness. Given it’s low gravity it has helf up astoningly well. Would stil be a good summer beer.
