3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 A dark gold body with a huge head. The aroma is blue cheese with lemons and some sweat. There is also nutmeg. The taste is sweat and earthy with apples, cherries and tobacco. There is also a hint of nutmeg spice. A nice light body makes this refreshing.

Small white head...smell is yeasty and fruity (apple and nectarine perhaps?). Taste is sweet with a slightly off wet grass flavor...It is however a good springtime beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer poor a farirly benign yellow body with a thin white head. Aroma is nice with noticable yeast and fruity nose. Flavor is spicey, yeasty with a nice initial malt sweetness followed by a bitter bite. All in all not a bad beer but the flavor is a little harsh and unbalanced. Aftertaste is a little chalky as well. Not a bad effort but better exist for sure.

Bottle. Sampled once during the Summer of 03 at the Piazza in Alejandra, IT. Now at the distributor in NJ. Unfortunately, not as tasty as I remember: big foamy head, clear golden ale. Dry and crisp, with a hint of flowers. Okay belgian ale, preferable to Stella, but inferior to Leffe and Affligem.

Rich gold color wwith quickly disappearing head. Mettalic nose with sweet malt and some citrus. Med weight with an overall dry nature. Strong honey and citurs without much more, kinda a boring, but quaffable.

Another basic undistinguished blonde of little character. Oxidized and acidic with a bit of grassy hop and little else.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted 05/03/2005. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits.
Lovely honey gold bright appearance in the glass with a pillowy pure white head that collapses into a thin cover. Beautiful thick lacing.
Nose is slightly skunky saaz at first but disappears as the alcohol comes through.
A pretty good bittersweet balance is delivered in the medium mouthfeel with a peppery hop bitterness just taking over the initial sweetness as you swallow.
Palate is left with a warm alcohol feel.
