4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2005 Bottle: Nose is very malty and fruity, the taste starts strong on hops then gradually moves to hers and spices and finishes sweet. Very complex in strong yellow colour with a heavy snowy head that stays to the last sip. One beer you´ll always enjoy.

Everyday is like Sunday with this fabulous, aptly named brew. Light, gold, creamy. Sweet though it's nicely hopped, nice dry finish.

Amazed that I hadn't rated this.. CReamy head with great fresh smell, reminiscent of a brewery. Spicy, hoppy, somewhat dry - refreshing. A great beer.

Bright cloudy gold. Lively carbonation. Massive fluffy white head. Fragrant yeasty, spicy, fruity aroma. Soft, spritzy, effervescent feel. Creamy fruity, yeasty flavour reminiscent of pear, orange, & banana. Spicy & peppery in the middle. Finish is lightly dry & warmly alcoholic.

Very fizzy on pouring this is very close to a Trappist ale but a little less biting. The sweetness and wonderful crispness doesn't prepare for the buzz you will get from drinking one of theese. Try some buy some.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear light gold with huge pillow-cloud white head. Very good retention, and great lacing. Medium carbonation. Lovely yeasty aroma, with hints of citrus (lemon rind?) and clove. Tiny hint of weizen-like banana there too. Brilliantly soft and smooth medium mouthfeel. Light weizen initial taste, with a lovely fruity yeasty aftertaste. Hint of citrus present on the tongue afterwoods too. Very quaffable. Cant detect the ABV at all. Rather reasonably priced too. Great stuff.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huge bulbous head like a cumulus cloud, aroma like bottled heaven, maybe it's the duvel glass, but I could sit and sniff this thing all night. yeast and malt and citrus fruits, very cool smells. tastes unbelievably complex, I don't have the palate to pick out many of the flavors but I taste different ones with each sip. very lively feel on the tongue and no hint of alcohol. an awesome beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden, hazy and some small bubbles.
A yeasty, malty aroma with notes of citrus.
A vinous alcohol-feel.
A spicy, rather sweet and bitter flavour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy yellow appearance with a large head. Aroma is of bananas, lemons, and pears. Flavor is slightly bitter but mostly sour with some citrus fruit and too much peppery spice present. An ok Belgian blonde although I don't typically enjoy them as much as many seem to. I'd prefer a La Chouffe over this one. And this is probably my new Most Overrated Beer, I just don't understand the hype. But to each thier own of course.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pale yellow, lager-looking with billowy white head. Yeasty esters are strong in the aroma, some hops also apparent. Wonderful body, rich fruity taste, very complex, very enjoyable. Well hidden 8.5%abv, empty Duvel glass begs for more. You'll always find the devil at my house.
