walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2009
I really like this beer a lot. It is like a lighter version of belgian styles. No bacteria funk like some other beers in this category. Nice subtle hoppiness - good level of sweetness (balancing, not overwhelming). Very carbonated, but it works. Some of that pruney belgian flavor, but less than most. Coats the mouth. I like this stuff, almost as much as the pepsi throwback I had earlier today.

McGarnigle (605) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2009
On sale, but still well ahead of drink by date of 09.28.09. Golden body, fab lacy head. Nice body moderate carbonation. Brewed in France, but I cannot help but think of it as a Belgian. Yeasty, earthy, dry. Really not that fruity to me. Some hop presence. Pretty easy to drink.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
500 ml can at Chancey Smith’s in London, ON- Sparkling gold pour unleashes a frothy bleached white cap. Some lace left behind, with some retention. Nose of honey, grains, lemon, grassy hops. Tastes of sweet grains, honey, floral hops, grass, straw. Quite the sharp hop profile towards the finish, prickly carbonation. Good.

asheft (2895) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2009
[corked bottle] Floral hops aroma along with some tangy butterscotch that is not diacetyl. Clear dark yellow with a foamy white cover that quickly drops. Flavour begins sort of like a belgian blonde ale with woody, floral hops together with spicy phenolics that are subtle, but detectable. A woody bitterness comes in later with a refreshing sour wheat and a touch of ethanol. Overall, very well balanced and tasty. Very quaffable for strength. Medium body, medium carbonation, woody bitter finish.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2009
Orange and lemon citrus with floral and honey-like musty notes in the aroma. Lightly hazy golden blond body is topped by a generous white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lacing. Flavour is quite dry with musty and grassy character. Sweetness emerges and lingers in the aftertaste along with fruity esters. Medium body with strong, pointy carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB 28/04/08) purchased through Bièropholie in Jun-07.

BeerandBlues2 (11725) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange with an average, fizzy, white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, straw, grain), light hops (flowers, grass), heavy yeast (dough, horse blanket, earth) with notes of apple, pear, pepper, and coriander. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

emerica56 (600) - Bristol, Rhode Island, USA - APR 3, 2009
This is a not that great of a brew. It has a nice golden pour with an extremely malty smell and some hints of hops but very faint. There is no aroma nor is there any lacing. The flavor is very bland and could use some more substance. It has good carbonation and nice use of malt but the bitterness could use some work and maybe add some flavor.
