COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

Nice golden color with a large frothy white head. Mild geuzue aroma with some apple and lemon. Somewhat sweet and spicy flavor with clove, lemon, and a light bitter hops finish. Medium carbonation, light and tingly.

Had this one after a couple of other types of beer. It still stood out from the crowd, pleasing my slightly tired taste buds nicely. Big creamy head tops a rich deep golden beer. Lots of variety on the nose - fruit for sure but it seemed to change from moment to moment. Complex flavour too with a slight hoppiness to the smooth finish. Solid.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Extremely carbonated. Very light yellow color. Looks a lot like lemon merangue pie!!! Smells like hoppy cologne. Alcohol very present. Smooth, full-bodied feel with a lemony sweet taste followed up with a strong yeast taste. A little false advertising with the PAle Ale label being an abbey tripel. Good brew!

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2005 Re-rate Sampled on draft and surprised by how much I enjoyed it - not common for Belgians to be better on tap.
Poured with an overwhelming head from 750ml bottle. Almost a floral aroma. This leads to an expectation is that it would be sweeter than it is. Regardless, there is a lot of subtlety in this brew. Certainly yeasty, and carbonated like champagne. Dry, thin finish.

Bananna, clove, grapefruit and light wheat aroma. Champagne head, yellow in the glass. Very tart lemon, wheat. Some orange and clove.

Bottle pours a sedimentary golden color with a minor dishwater head.   Aroma is of an overly ripe banana and the usual belgian yeast.   Head has now dissipated.   Carbonation seems non-existant.   Flavor on this one falls somewhat flat.   Bad bottle perhaps?   The flavor isnt all there.   Perhaps some slight citrus tones, but other than that its very bland.   Need to rerate at some point.

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2004
(Bottle) Pours a golden color, slightly hazy, with an amazingly thick white head. Had a nice creamy, soft palate with a flavor of yeast and citrus.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2004
750 mL bottle, snifter. Biscuit, toasted light bread malt (M); flowers, perfume, herb hops (H); white grape, pineapple, white wine, pepper aromas. Huge, creamy, white head is well lasting and sits on a slightly hazy, yellow-amber body with heavy carbonation. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, heavily bitter, lightly acidic finish. A little watery in the aftertaste. Medium body, creamy texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: a real sweet and spicey gem.

radiomgb (2465) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2004
Orange gold in colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon, oranges and some sweetness. Flavour was smooth, soft, yeasty and lots of citrus. Finishes with a mild bitterness.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2004 15 years old: Beautiful clear red and orange colour. Very round and soft. Nice round and flavourful mouthfeel. Rather sweet, but without the prunes and plums. Surprisingly good after all those years! Really worth waiting for. 5 3 5 3 11: Supposed to be sweet. I find it slightly bitter, hoppy and yeasty. Quite high carbonation. Yellow body with a strongly sparkling head. Yeasty middle and finish. Not as much hops as I hoped there would be. Not much fruityness.
