3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of sour bananas, oranges, lemons and yeast. Bright yellow color with a fluffy and creamy short, wispy white head. Taste is sweet, crisp and creamy. Citric elements, predominantly lemons, join with bananas to give a taste complex like a lemon cream pie. Bitterness, pepper spiciness and residual sugars mask the high ABV well. Solid.

Bottled. Hazy yellow colour with huge bubbly/foamy head. Sweet yeasty and malty/fruitish hints. Strong sweet wheat in flavour with malty hints. Also some notes of alcohol, but they fit the beer good. Sweet wheaty aftertaste. Oily palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 I am not much of a fan of this brewer. I have tried this beer a couple of times but it has never lived up to the hype for me. +++Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh this beer poured a medium golden color with a large white head. The aroma is tangy sour malt with a light fruity undertone. The flavor is sour tang, light malt, a bit of fruit and the usual perfumey rose water flavor that this series of beers always has. Of note is the fact that I have had a 3 year old bootle of this beer and it was very nice: 8/4/8/4/17

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
tastes a bit like duvel, but much sweeter. very much alcohol-taste, not hidden at all. but what offended me the most, was the large quantity of floating objects and the smell of almost rotten oranges! bad bottle? i will rerate this later. finish is bitter and dry (which i like).

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 Much like nocturnum but lighter in color and mouth feel and stronger in alcohol. This is a good beer in the summer--very refreshing and fortifying.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 Nice medium body, reasonably complex belgiun ale. Strong bubblegum aroma and initial taste, chances as u drink it to a fruity hopy mix.
Defo worth a try, also brownie points in the great bottle...

UPDATED: APR 14, 2005 The design of the bottle. The expectations when you hear the name of this beer. Perfect. Superb. But the beer is OK. But I think it is too strong.
