UPDATED: JUL 14, 2007 This beer is decent, but itís mainly yeast and hops. This is a beer whose appearance is so distinctive that it gets some extra points. (Yes, there is a massive head, yes itís very cloudy, these are the distinguishing characteristics.)

Nice fresh aroma, light color with incredible thick head and lots of lace. A ton of carbonation but give it a few minutes to settle down before drinking. Perfectly balanced to my tongue. Delicious.

Is there a bad Belgian Ale?? Excellent balance, very smooth, slightly hoppy, with a great finish.

Hazy pale straw colour, pours with big fluffy head. Aroma reminds me of mint leaves. Fruity tatse.

Smells slightly smoky at first and tasted the same at first sip. Had a head like a BMC beer. I liked how it was both light and flavorful.

Looks like a mixture of a wheat beer, champagne, and apple juice. Thin frothy head piled on top. First sip caught me in the back of the throat--this is very spicy indeed. I was disappointed in the mouthfeel; the beer tended to dissipate and froth up in my mouth. This seems too carbonated; so much that it burns, although this does enhance the usual complement of spices one finds in Belgian beers. Finish is sweet, short and melonlike.

Wonderful, thick head. Spicy and sweet at the same time. A devilish delight.

Initial slow pour brings a bright, clear, golden coloured liquid, with rich, frothy head and loads of bubbles. As a bit of the yeast slides through, it clouds to a straw colour. Aroma is tart, fruity and spicy. Flavours of citrus and pepper with a bitter tang to the finish. A really refreshing brew that hides itís 8.5% well. Itís a great companion to a snack of crisp apple and a mild cheese.
