2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (June 2008) served not much above fridge temperate (hey, it’s hot here!) from a Duvel glass. Luminous, bright and just a touch hazy golden body surmounted by a massive smooth fine-bubbled and very slow to fade headthat leaves zero lacing.....aroma offers a bit of nice bready malt, hints of citrus and coriander, but is severely disfigured by an underlying vegetal edge....body is lightly sweet at the front, firmly malty-doughy in the middle, somewhat dry and mineralic at the finish; no real earthy qualities, heck not really much character at all; it’s a mediocre, drinkable golden ale with really no BDG style notes at all. Oh well, I didn’t really expect much more from this brewery...

Sĺ kom jeg til en fransk landřl, ja en amerikansk version. Den belgisk/franske řl er meget sřdlig og frugtagtig, den smager af hvad jeg tror der er gćren, rigtig god!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very hazy, golden. Not much of a hop aroma ...or flavor for that matter. Sweet but not overpowering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 4-28-2009 (Bottle) When poured, this beer presents a small head with good retention, transparent yellow body, visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is malty, spice notes, crisp, hops, sweet, and fruity. The Taste echoes the Aroma along with tasting somewhat dry. The Palate is fizzy and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is relatively easy to drink and is refreshing in its own way. This is a beer that did not have that WOW factor for me and therefore not a beer I will drink again.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little out of season but here goes... Pours a clear (unless you select to include the slight amount of yeast sediment available) golden yellow, effervescent, and a substantial, cream colored head which subsides but doesn’t disappear. Aroma is faint, bread/yeast, earthy with a hint of grapefruit/citrus. Flavor is mostly malty, with a nod towards sweet and and edge of dry hops. Medium to light body, nice lingering flavors. Overall, this beer fits my general tendancies towards a maltier brew. I could easily make this a regular.

Refreshing with a long, slightly warming finish. Good choice for warm weather.
