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.

For me it was not one of the better belgish beers. Well, nice, fruity aroma, but not as complex as expected.

Frank (3046) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2003
Lovely hazy golden-yellow. Foamy white head diminishes quickly to a quarter inch. Cut hay and earth in the aroma. Sort of barnyardy but pleasant. The flavor is much less assertive. Somewhat sour yeast notes. Grainy but clean. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. A solid beer but nothing I'm gonna cream my shorts over.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2003
Poured a cloudy, golden color with a big white head that dimished to nice thin head while there was still beer in the glass. Lots of lacing.
Strong yeast and malt in the nose. Some alcohol too.
Very yeasty first drink with a big hop bite. I really like the balance of the yeast and hops.
Carbonated like champagne and light on the tongue.

3/30/03: bottle.
light orange color accompanied by a thick white head which quickly dissipates leaving some lacing. very active. typical belgium style nose. lots of belgium yeast and some fruitiness to the taste. as this beer warms, there is a pronounced lemon flavor. for the most part i agree with the commercial description… i’m just not a big fan of belgium beers.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2003
First of the three Belgians I had at Bruxelles in New York and the best of the three. Cloudy golden pour with a huge head. Taste of malt, yeast and bread, fruit.

bierkoning (10563) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2003
Cloudy. Citric aroma with honey. Sweetish, hoppy, yeasty, slight ly citric flavor. Milky and creamy. Short, slightly hopbitter, citric finish.

thedm (4972) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 Nice lively pour with a good white head filled with medium to large bubbles. It has that light yellow/orange color with yeast floating in it as is typical of the Abbey Pale Ales I have tried. The head died out and left no lacing before I could even take my first sip. It's aroma mild and fruity. The initial taste was a mild and fruity with a strong carbonation on the tip of my tongue. On subsequent tastes I began to feel the carbonation filling up in my stomach. A nice brew, but the Chimays are better. GF said it was nice and gave it a rating of 3.65, better than the coffee brews LOL!

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2004 Nice dark golden colour with good head. This is a fresh beer. Hoppy and fruity. Some yeasty notes but not overwhelming. I prefer the Pater though.
Aged for 15 years: Darker coloured than the fresh. Very sweet and round. Honeyish notes. Very well balanced and pleasant.

This hazy straw gold beer has a rich white head with great lacing. The aroma is light with citrusy hops, toasted malt and a hint of copper. The palate softens and hints of creamy toasted malts, light fruits and subtle herbaceous hops leading to the malty finish.
