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.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2004
A nice golden color. A delicate light fruity aroma, very inviting. As is the taste, dry complex. Fruity, malt character and spicy hops. Finishes clean and refreshing. Has almost a champagne factor to it, so it fit very well on New Years eve.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2004
Deep golden color with a nice white head. The taste is slight bitter but wellbalanced. Notes of citrus and yeast.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Small bottle. Pale golden, medium quick dissipating head. Sweet yeasty orangepeel nose, pungent pininess in the mouth, full but quick finish. Good, but nothing special.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Not too much hop nose, mostly spice. Dry flavor with more of a belgian spicy taste to it. Nice golden color. Not bad, not great.

Suttree (5548) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 22, 2003
Cloudy yellow, large, sturdy white head. Initial aroma is citrus and some woodsy mustiness, and this is afairly apt description on the flavor as well. Add in some peppery bitterness and slight graininess to the finish. I also think that "donk" is my favorite syllable in a beer name, and If I ever own a donkey, I'm gonna name him "Corsen".

imdownthepub (11398) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2003
Bottle Conditioned. Golden brown with large foamy head. Highly perfumed, piney nose with a grating background peel flavour. Bread notes.

SilkTork (5407) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2003
Bottle. Dirty pale colour with an upside down drizzle and soft foam on top. I can't think of any reason why anyone thinks that it looks attractive. But each to their own. Smells like a wheat beer. I suspect there is wheat in here somewhere, which would account for the big head and long head retention. Initial crispness is quickly over taken by a sweet stickiness then by the alcohol. Some wheat beer spice in the finish. Belgian yeast evident throughout. Despite all my grumbling I enjoyed this brew. Finished it quite quickly as well.

SirTom (89) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2003
I get a very different kind of buzz from this beer. Like getting high? Whatever it does, it's great. Has a great palate and very abnormal but mouth-watering aroma.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Draft - Cloudy yellow beer with great hoppy, sweet aroma. A great tasting beer with perfect carbonation and flavor. An quite enjoyable lunch beer.

Gotta love those Belgian hops and yeast. Nice mild hoppy aroma. Vanilla and floral tastes. Beautiful cloudy golden color.
