On tap. Comes a cloudy amber with a decent white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, caramel, and spice. Taste is yeast, caramel, malt, citrus, dark fruit, and some hops. Nice to sip.

Draft shared by Tmoney99 (late summer 2011). Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, mild fruity notes, apricots, light tart character, mild spices, light yeast with lightly toasted bread. I thought that it became soft mid palate through the finish.

750ml bottle 7/00-Pours a light amber with a small head. Aroma of fruits, hops, and caramel. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2005 Quelle belle bouteille sérigraphié. Bouteille à consommer de préférence avant la fin 2005. Couleur ambrée, faible mousse blanche concassée adhérant partiellement au verre. Semble toujours en bon état à en juger par les arômes qui ne témoignent pas des quelques années d’age du liquide. Fruité et épicé, style cumin, en arôme. En bouche, flaveurs légèrement cartonnées et oxydées témoignent finalement de l’âge de cet échantillon. Le fruité et la verdure des houblons est aussi moins présent comparativement à une version fraîche. Le seigle apporte enfin une touche épicée très intéressante et se mélange très bien au reste des flaveurs. Un réchauffant passage ensoleillé en provenance du passé. Bouteille, Charlie’s Street Liquor, Boston, Juin 2005

Thanks to Goldtwins for this one. Starts off by pouring a huge off white head over a hazy yellow body. Lightly sweet malt aroma, some hops. Some acidic notes also. Very light palate delivers a thin, refreshing beer with very few outstanding flavors.

Ottima blond ale profumata e leggermente fruttata al naso ma anche al gusto. Meno dolce e corposa rispetto alla cugina La chouffe. Note più speziate e erbacee che la rendono forse più beverina. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Dark amber in color with a medium sized, light, fluffy head. The aroma is a strange combination of sweet citrus fruit, spices, floral and citric hops, honey, white grape, pear, bread, and a surprising bit of medicinal alcohol. Sort of short when it comes to flavor. The fruit that was in the nose seems only very light and hardly noticable. Decent malt for a summer beer. Not incredibly full, but with nice oatmeal cookie and honey wheat flavors. The finish has some spicy hops and dries out rather quickly. A refreshing summer beer, but not my favorite.

this is like a light belgian has some of the characteristics that one would expect from a belgian but in a weaker, sissier form. do not waste your time.
