3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gloassy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy malt and typical belgian yeast. Body is a bit crisp, and a viscous finish. The flavor is an earthy sweetness, somewhat bitter, and has notes of peach and lemon. Not a bad beer, but nothing too special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Subtle in most every way. Light citrus and herbal aromas. Light yellow and clear. Flavors of fruit, flowers, and malt. All very light. Very light palate. I had this beer chilled but I think it would be refreshing cold.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew marked best before 8/10/04 poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind an unnoted lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was transparent and orange in color. Its aroma contained notes of citrus dough mild coriander malt and was nice. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a vinous palate and a malty aftertaste. Its flavor contained citrusy malty hoppy notes and was very tasty.

Bottled, Stockholm Ber Festival.
Overly yeasty nose, too young I suppose. Sugary in flavour, chewy, a little fruity, smooth. Yeasty backbone. Still not that bad.
