This was a very pleasing Belgian ale. The nose was sorta funky and the taste was buttery smooth. As with all these Goose Island ales, it’s a little steep for a 4-pack, but I’m not at ratebeerprices.com, so it doesn’t matter. I’d drink this again. Delicious.

Decent ale. Aroma is mostly fruity, banana stands out. Taste is quite dry, and similar to the nose. Palate a bit spicy and head could be more frothy.

Light amber, generous head. Exhuberant nose. Medium body and flavor intensity, refreshing mouthfeel, good length. Dry, slightly bitter, crisp. Yeasty, malty. Has its charms but too dry for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pours dark golden with 1" cream head. Smell and taste of cloves but not too much, some bitterness but not to much. Just how I like it, nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours orange. Can taste cloves with flavors of spices, can’t tell which ones. Not bad but still like Sofie better.

Swaroga (1758) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2015
Butelka75cl. OCZY : piwo jest przejrzyste o kolorze miedzianym i białej, drobno-pęcherzykowej pianie. NOS : na pierwszy niuch idą nuty melanoidynalne i przyprawowe. Przede wszystkim pieprz. Następnie estry w postaci moreli, winogron i delikatniej banana. Biały ser, siano, skórka cytryny i delikatne fenole. USTA : średnio nasycone o kremowej konsystencji. W smaku pol-wytrawne winne o mocno podkreślonej przyprawowości. Wręcz soczyste nuty słodów z lekko przypieczoną skórką ciasta drożdżowego. Piwo ma delikatna gorycz. W posmaku pieprz i klejące usta. ODCZUCIA : pierwszy raz pije tak belgijskiego blonda warzonego poza Belgią. Równowaga w każdym detalu. Pijalne ale za to kremowe. Przyjemne piwo. Świetny blonde.

Luvystypotables (1063) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Aroma is a little funky but has notes of Belgian yeasts, cloves. Pours a great caramel color with and a lasting white head. Tadte of banana and cloves with a full body and a pleasant banana finish.

Lacho (25) - USA - JUL 19, 2015
Pours with very thin foam, which disappeared almost immediately. Reminiscent of an abbey ale, very faint licorice, banana, phenols, and caramel. Alcohol does not make an appearance. Good beer.

Smells like bitter beer. Taste is sort of mediocre if not slightly below average. Like a mildly malty ale with hops. Medium carbonation with some foam.
