The aromas and impressions are floral above all. Floral with a hunch of grass. It has a nice smell of apricots. Goes with almost everything that is steaked or grilled.

Pours golden with a thin mostly receding off-white head. Notes of sweet pale malt, honey, biscuit malt, bubble gum esters and soapy, herbal hops. Medium to full bodied with lively carbonation.

wheresthepath (2104) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2010
[750ml bottle at 7.2% from Beers of Europe that Dad shared with me - cheers!] Gold with copper hints, a large white head and a pleasant tingle of carbonation. It’s sweet and very spicy from the start, with Belgian yeast flavours also much in evidence and absinthe-like herbs in the background. Soft enticing mouthfeel despite the carbonation. A very enjoyable beer indeed.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Presentation: It was poured from a 750ml brown bottle into a tulip glass. The bottle has a bottle date of 09-28-09. Appearance: Its body has a deep orange amber color with a good cloudy appearance and a tall off white head. The head quickly fades down to a thin cap which then holds on well making spotty slick lacing on the glass. Smell: The aroma is very wheaty and bready. Underneath that are some light citrusy notes of hops. Taste: There are dry wheat, light grain and light bready malty notes throughout. Towards the finish a light touch of citrus hops moves in and adds some bitterness for balance. The finish is quick, snappy and dry. The palate has a medium well carbonated feel. Notes: Overall it is a very nice Biere de Garde with loads of tasty wheat maltiness. Everything else is right on par for the style.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottled. Mildly skunked aroma, German hop, slight cauliflower, yam. Mild yeasty notes. Mostly dry. Big fluffy head. Oxidized, metallic notes sits atop what is otherwise a very pleasing flavor, bready, doughy, light and crisp and mellow. Despite the flawed aroma, this turns out to be a very nice drink.

ghawener (1565) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JAN 11, 2011
Bottle: First rating for this brewery, a great soft, subtle beer with nice blending of malts and spices. A great session beer but with care @ 7.8% ABV. Food Pairing: Cheese platter.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Bottle 330ml from la Grande Epicerie, Paris. Tasty beer. Aromas of caramel, hay, and straw. Taste is sweet and sour, with good length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body. Yellow, with a thin head.

Aurelius (5032) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Straightforward, Belgian PA aroma -- tannic, sweetish, a little caramel, slightly floral, a little vanilla, slight banana and female sweat. Good 750ml bottle, handwork label. Candied, sweet, pear/pomaceous flavors, a little astringent, tannic. Slick, medium to slightly dense body, effervescent. This was not terribly complex. but really hit a sweet spot that I have for bitters and belgian PAs. On top of that, I got this at a clearance price of $1.99/750ml -- $1.99/750 ml is not a terrible price for malt liquor, much less a beer of this sophistication. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.
