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.

Pailhead (6385) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 31, 2005
Bottle: Nice sweet aroma of yeast, bananas and citrus. Pours a pale yellow with a big white head that has good retention. Flavor is actually a little light. Light yeastiness and banana up front followed with a light citrus finish with slight acidity. A light metallic flavor lingers in the background.

gsteph (323) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2005
This stuff is beautiful, a very vibrant gold with a huge, pillowy white head and some particles. It has a very "energetic" aroma. Yeasty, floral and citrus but light on the nose. Crisp and cool flavor palate and very lively. Slight fruitiness, citrus, very slight nuances of cloves, and malt with a dry finish. There is a slight hop bite but very mild. Flavor is great from beginning to end. The whole package is great.

Sammy (11069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2005
like a blond. Yeasty smell, a nice yeasty head for a few minutes after the pour. Creamy smooth in the drink but with metallic in the finish and real metal and dry aftertaste. Coriander

pivo (2660) - GERMANY - MAR 10, 2005
Yeasty nose, gold color, tall fluffy head. Creamy malt with a hints of vanilla and citrus. Reminds me of Leffe a little. No so special, but a quality brew by all means.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazy blond color with a quickly dissipating white head. Nose is estery, spicy and laced with floral hops. Taste is light malts, light fruits, fresh and acidic, medium-bodied, slightly sweet with a light bitterness, lot of carbonation, followed up with a dry perfumy finish. I like this one.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2005 Tasted 07/03/2005. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington. Pours a light bright gold with a thick white billowing head. As the head dies a very strong clingy lacing is revealed. The nose is a soft bouquet of old style boiled sweets and very light citrus notes. Flavour is candy sweet up front, but balanced exceptionally well with a touch of spice and some bitter grassiness from the hops. Palate is left remarkably clean for such a strong ale. Very good - a little more subtle than some belgians.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Had this one head to head with Cdonk brown, both were delicious. Pours very light yellow color. Enormous head, and I poured carefully too. Had a metal band holding the cork in place to hold back the high carbonation. Head was everlasting. Very dry aroma. A bit musty and some orange peel. Light airy head. Flavor is mostly yeasty with some citrus. Very smooth and soft character, especially considering the high carbonation. Well done. Wisps of bubbly lace.
