jstraw (1951) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Hazy yellow with big, foamy, white head / Dry, hoppy nose of citrus, lemon, banana, and oak? / Medium to full body, somewhat syrupy and thick, but vibrant carbonation, some sweetness but dry, woody, and resinous in the middle, with light bitterness on the finish / Flavors of banana, orange peel, coriander, clove, and straw / Not my taste, these big "hefeweizens", but well done.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2012
This is actually very well done. Nice light fruitiness, a bit deceivingly sticky, had no idea it was 9%, seems quite authentic, which isn’t what I thought the Italians did with their brewing... but this is true Belgian.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012 Thanks Kate! Pours a light hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma is spicy and peppery with a light bready character and some slight citrus. Flavor starts sweet, some honey, maybe a touch of clove and the classic belgian yeast notes, slight gumminess and a strong fruity estery character. Medium body and a soft carbonation.

Hazy blonde with a frothy white head and thin lace. Aroma of citrus and hint of clove. Malt, herb flavour with a subtle spicy finish. Malty finish. Surprisingly sweet when warms up.

JoeMcPhee (9051) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
Pale cloudy pour - some yeasty chunks are floating around in it; shouldn’t have dislodged the yeast cake. The second pour and it looks like a glass of diarrhea. The nose is lightly peppery and a little bit floral. There’s a touch of spice and a little bit of pear/apple character in the beer. A bit of bubble gum and a softly sweet maltiness. There is a little bit of sweatiness to the beer but also some light mintiness. It’s pleasurable enough, but could be drier.
