Source: On tap at Medici in Normal, IL.

Palate: Medium/full body with softish carbonation and a silky mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Color is clear light amber, with 1 inch frothy head. Aroma is orange peel, spices, and yeasty funk. Taste is some candi sugar and tart fruit, then a hint of sour and some barnyard funk. Mouthfeel is smooth and moderately carbonated. Interesting, not wild about it at first, but it kinda grew on me.

Thanks to cmilward at redlight. Looks alot like orval, but its alot sweeter than orval is. lots more appley and sugary. This one didn’t have the great mouthfeel that orval did either.

mspindler (489) - Alta Loma, California, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle shared by NickTheElder. Pours a hazy yellow with some orange and a big off white head. Aroma is under ripe banana and spicy yeast. Flavor has some of the same with some bread and peppery lemon. Finishes fruity but dry. Palate is moderate with alot of foamy carbonation. Easy going down. A decent Belgian style ale.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours an orangish gold with a nice white head. Aroma is yeast, malts, and citrus. The taste is about the same. The citrus flavor really comes out in the finish. I really like this beer for the style it is. It reminds me of Germany and good times had there. I would recommend this, but not an everyday beer.

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2009
Draft- Cullen’s- Chicago. Hazy yellow/amber served in a 12 oz goblet. Strong aroma of grass and yeast. Taste is funky and off- heavy grass, heavy yeast, sorry if I missed the point of this one- not pleasant. Some dried fruit trying to make its way to the end of this strange brew. Based on the other ratings (and my bias towards Goose Island beers), I may have gotten a bad pour. Who knows. Glad this one is over.
