COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blond like a ray of sunlight, crowned by a thick foam and sustained by a pronounced effervescence, this beer is the delight of all our customers! Its bouquet is the result of a large array of floral and fruity esters which is complemented by a light and delicate fragrance of malts and hops. The first draught reveals a fruity sweetness and a warm touch of alcohol. The hops are only delicately unveiled in the aftertaste.

Tap at Spuyten. Pours a nice slightly hazy golden with a frothy white head and great lace. Aroma has lots of spicy phenolic belgian yeast character- some vanilla phenols and very peppery with some lemon zest hints. Flavors have the spicy phenols really coming on strong, especially with the green pepper aspect- doughy, some cookie dough- earthy and herbal hops and a bit hay-like and some grassy notes. Moderate mouthfeel wth some lingering spice in the back of the throat and moderately bitter.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2008
on tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Hazy golden in color with a medium, long lasting off white head. Aroma is yeasty, with spicy phenolics, light fruity esters-pear mostly, and pale malts. Taste is also yeasty with some must and phenolics, light pepper and fruit-pear and light citrus. body is light to medium with some fresh bready pale malts and honey sweetness, as well as some earthy hops. Finishes with a light to moderate hop bitterness as well some lingering phenolics and yeast. This was a nice, straight forward belgian ale. Well done.

Draft at Spuyten. Blond pour with a little orange tint. Aroma is spices, and a tiny bit of sweet malt. Flavor is clove, spices, floral hops, and overall too spice-driven for me. There just isn’t anything to balance it out, and it ends up tasting medicinal.

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
Draught. At Dieu du Ciel. Pale gold, small white head. Sweet aroma of honey, alcohol and perfume hops. The taste leaned a little more toward the pungent floral hops, not quite as fruity/sweet as the aroma - decent balance here, dangerously easy to drink. Reasonably thick and syrupy mouthfeel, somewhat still, nice grassy/floral linger - a solid offering.

blankboy (6444) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2008
Draught at Dieu du Ciel! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with an average size lasting creamy / fluffy white head. Aroma’s sweet along with light spices, fruit and yeast. Flavour follows the aroma and is like a light, easy-drinking Belgian Ale with a light hoppy finish. Average bodied. Very good, I enjoyed it.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
On tap at DDC. Dark yellow, small white head. Interesting aroma - yeasty, lots of malt, a bit sweet. Really nice taste - Lots of light malt, yeast, and surprising amount of hops. Very flavourful. Great stuff.

GregClow (2957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2008
Draught (6 oz. sample) at Dieu du Ciel! Light golden with a small head. Aroma is fruity (orange & apricot) and yeasty - very Belgian. Flavour is full and sweet, with notes of honey and apricot, and a light, herbal finish. Quite nice.

10 of 13, tasters @ the source. Pours orange with a yellow cloudy bright white thin head. The nose is crisp, herbal and nice. Overall tasted like a nice sweet light sessioning Belgian.

probstblueribbon (3239) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
Pint at brewpub. SE11/07.

App.: Slightly hazy golden, full white head. Aroma: Yeast/dough/bread, lemony, light spice, coriander, soft sweet malts and light funk. Palate: Medium body, very light effervescence and slightly syrupy. Flav.: Plenty of yeast, some warm spices, some honey and floral notes, lightly fruity and funky; a little sweet and a touch bitter.

A touch cloying, but not bad.
