Wonderfully complex flavor that doesnít overpower you with alcohol. Billowing clouds of foam that leave a beautiful, uncommon lacing on the side of the glass as you drink. Aroma on mine was somewhat faint. The flavor had a spiciness, or sass, slightly fruity. A well-deserved good reputation.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2005 330 ml bottle. Really light beer. Kinda commercial beer but without preservatives. Missing a bit of taste. I had great expectations from that beer and was a bit disapointed. Itís not a bad beer but just missing a bit of a punch.

No wonder this is a popular beer. Itís extremely easy to drink beīcause the alcohol is so well hidden in the flavor. Itís light and elegant with a flowery aroma. Almost like drinking champagne.

Cascades of white foam. Lots of carbonation. Aroma with spices and notes of citrus. Light golden colour. The 8.5 % alcohol is well hidden. Taste of fruit, herbs and yest. Hoppy finish.
A very tasty beer!

One of the few Belgianís that I like. A good clean tase withour a lot of bitterness. A good amount of carbonation in the end.

An absolutely clear lager-like yellow with a billowing fluff head offers a nose of hay, some citrus, and vague, indefinable spice. The mouthfeel is even and very nice yielding a flavor that is crisp and smooth with a definite accent of a peppery spice character. This is endlessly enjoyable and easy, but it is far from a complex layered brew.

Pale yellow, hazy, huge head with lots of fizzy carbonation. Aromas of hay, fruity-floral hops. Refreshing, alcohol well hidden. Very good.

Pours with a big head and greeny golden color. Smells of honey and citrus. Taste is like champagne at first, quite dry, a little sourness but quickly gives way to a moderately heavy sweetness. Finish is kind of weird, has a grainy flavor that isnít very pleasant.
Easy and drinkable, although not worth the four dollars a bottle.

very de-lish and a classic. pours a nice pale golden color with a head that is like lemon merangue. after waiting for it to subside (it never fully goes away!!). ahhhhhh!!! oranges and slight hints of green apples in the smell and taste. pouring it all in a glass is difficult since I usually get the750ml bottle. so I have to wait for the head to go down a little, or drink it down a little!!!!. very nice brew, definatly worth a pour or five!!! cheers!!

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 Bottle. The head blew up on me about half way through the pour. Some serious bubbles make this a frothy delight. Poured a clouded brownish gold. Sharp and bitter with a hint of citrus. Bubbly as predicted by the massive head. Alcohol was well hidden by the hoppy, citrus palate. Finishes with a lengthy hoppiness. A very nice Belgian Ale.
