COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hints of coriander, lemon, and orange suggest sunny days and relaxed times.

agl108 (735) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2008
On draft at the brewpub. Poured hazy golden with slight carbonation. Flavor was complex consisting of sweet malts, citrus, coriander, and a touch of spice. My wife and her girlfriend liked it.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Draft at brewpub. Pours pale golden amber with a dissipating white head. Flavor of pale malts, green apple, and some citrus. This reminded me of a friendís homebrew attempt at Blue Moon. I did not pick up much spice at at all. Something was off on this one, acetaldehyde maybe? Not sure.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2007
Draft @ Gen Laf - Golden color with a medium white-ish head. Aroma was that of a lighter Belgian ale. Taste was a tad spicy, but seemed like a boring Belgian "single". Pretty unremarkable, but I suppose most beers are after a glass of La Tete Fontaine.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Overall this one was a little bland and nothing really stood out for me. I couldnt tell if this was jsut a belgian spiced beer or more of a saison. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is light but mostly spicy, coriander, citrus, lemon zest, lemongrass, orange peel, and some alligator pepper notes. Light brett on the aroma as well, and some of the crisp citrusy notes from the brett carry through to the flavor as well. More citrus, light wheat malts, and some orange peel. Finish is crisp and mostly clean, but a bit light on the body. Ok overall.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Poured dark straw with aroma of hopcit and some Brett. Tastes hopcity, with some finishing candi sugar, Brett, and slight female taint (like a chicks nether region just out of the shower). Another winner from GLI.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2005
On tap at the GLI. Beer board had this listed as íSaison Likeí. Poured a lighter amber color with a very small white head. Aromas and tastes of orange peeland lemons. Had a very lightly sour taste to it as well.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Poured a pale golden color with a small white head. citrus and light yeast aroma. Taste of citrus (orange peel) and alot of yeast with an average mouthfeel. They called this a wit at the brewpub, but iím glad to see it is called a Belgian Ale here, it was not very wit-like.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2004
What happened? Is the General feeling unwell? Almost a skunky aroma, color is not bad, but tasted more like a pilsner to me. Bitter finish, unimpressive. The first bad beer I have ever had from the General :(

obxdude10 (1971) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2002
Very light ale, kept a decent head through the pint, subtle hints of fruitiness, decent Belgian ale

JFGrind (1811) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2002
A light belgium spring ale that makes for a nice session beer. Iíve seen some people added a lemon wedge to the beer when drinking but I believe itís okay on its own.
