Thanks to a77cj7 for sending me a couple of bottles of this. The beer pours a light yellow color with a white head. The beer is fairly hazy. The aroma is full of wheat and biscuit malt, with some nice orange citrus notes as well as some Belgian yeast notes. The flavor is also very nice. Up front I get a lot of juicy orange citrus notes. The flavor is fairly sweet, with some nice biscuit malt and Belgian yeast also mixed in. The alcohol is well hidden and the beer is easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2011 22 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Saw this new version was being retired so I had to grab one. Pours a bright, somewhat hazed gold with a finger of white head. Aroma of pale and sweet malts, crackers, herbs, straw, and sugar. Flavor of sweet malts, cereal, spice, dry bread, and herbs. Light-medium bodied with medium carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Solid but not on par with the other Belgians from Goose Island. Guess that is why it is retired.

Just picked up a 22 oz. bottle at my local grocery store, after I heard Goose Island had retired this beer. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. What little head there is sticks around, Aroma is not that bizarre: mostly malty. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Medium body and slightly oily texture. I’m glad to say I tried it but will keep looking for better Belgian style ales.

Fine Belgian inspired ale with good hops. Slightly pungent beer with little too much acid.

Countbeer (4303) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle @ ZZT’11 #2: Thanks to Joes: Small quick disappearing white head on top of a light cloudy yellow colored beer. Smell malts, barleys, fruit, abricot, raisin and rose hip. Taste malts, barleys, corn hint of fruit. Bit like a barley wine. Nice malty barley, barley wine ish aftertaste. Low carbo, full body, soft mouthfeel and a creamy texture.

75cl bottle thanks to Joes at ‘Zieke Zuiden Tasting II’. Hazy yellow color, no head. Smell too much malts, nothing more actually. Tastes flat, slightly sweet, light hops, light fruityness. Decent carbo, medium body.

Bottle. Golden with white head and lots of suspended sediment. Spicy and not over-empowering Belgian yeast nose. Familiar Belgian flavour. Not as bold as actual Belgian equivalent but nice anyway.
