Poured a very pale cloudy orange with a frothy head. A fruity aroma with bubble gum and spices. The flavor is a touch spicy, clove with bubble gum/banana flavors and a touch of citrus. There is a nice warmth from the alcohol. A good carbonation and some bitterness with a drying finish.

very aromatic, floral, and overall spicey smelling. Color is more of a clowded golden with considerable white foam the subsides nicely. Taste is marked by the final hint of alcohol. Otherwise clove is the most notable pleasentry from this beer. There is of course the rather standard feel from a belgian, but this strays from the path rather nicely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2003 24/4: Very wit like in appearance, cloudy white-yellow with huge foamy white head. Very fruity wheatbeer like aroma, hints of vanilla and bubblegum in there. Lovely sweet wheaty taste with clove/pepper like spiceyness to it. Great mouthfeel, lovely and creamy. ABV masked very well. Re-rate: Same as before, extra point onto apperance this time though. Brilliant head retention.
