3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a medium hazy golden color with a huge head. Aromas and tastes of fruits (bananas) and spices. Alcohol content well hidden (this one will creep up on you if you drink too many and it is easy to drink!).

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 A real nice Belgian ale--not the best but nice. Pours a lovely hazy golden with that big Belgian head we know and love.. Fruity nose with a body loaded with malty goodness. Not overly complex but dangerously drinkable.

I had high expectations for this one, and I was not disappointed. Sloooow pour due to foam overload, but worth the wait. Flavor galore - spice, banana, yeast, hop, wheat, etc. It’s all in there, and it’s done so well. Creamy texture, great drinkability, and nice finish. Drink it carefully ’cause you forget you’re drinking a strong one.

Pale gold in color topped with sticky, white cotton candyish froth. Sweet, hop aroma and Belgian yeasty nose. Carbonation high, tingly, and broad on te palate assists the beer in its smooth, peppery complexity. A classic.

Pour was very carbonated. THick white foamy head. Smell of barley, very strong hoppiness. Had the same feeling as a sparkling wine. Strong hop taste, little bitterness. Lite caramel and roast. Thanks Bück Dich! Happy Birthday!

Pale straw in color, a little hazy. Incorporates a nice wheat flavor in a generally bitter belgian ale. Quite good.

nice golden color.. lots of carbonation, thick white head on pour and lots of it... smelled of a mild fruitiness..
Carried a sweet taste clean going down.. no bitterness at all... it had hints of lots of fruits although I could’nt identify them...

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Almost champagne-like bubbles. Explosive head (not too thick) gone after a few seconds. Very hoppy and spicy, resembling white fruits, tastes clean and strong.
