Bottle. hazy straw colored beer with a large white frothy head. Citrus and spice aromas are transfered through to the taste and a hint of ginger in there. I accept that others rave about this beer and maybe it is an excellent example of itís style but Iím afraid Iím not so struck.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well I have to say that Iím genuinely impressed. I had this beer from a bottle and drank it from something of a chalice. The first sip was decieving and as the beer level in my glass dropped my like for it heightened. You can taste ever so faintly spome wonderful spices that I cannot identify but that give it a marvelous taste. A SPLENDID finish. One of the best Iíve had recently. I can imagine that this beer would go beautifully with a non-spicy simple meal, perhaps a steak and garden salad.

On tap at a local pub. Nice citrusy aroma with some light spice that included coriander and a bit of clove. Color is a pale and cloudy, pastel yellow with an inch tall white head. Nice and simple flavor with some light malt and a nice citrus and spice twist about halfway through a drink. Nice and refreshing, enjoyable with my food.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden straw, with a good amount of particles. A large, frothy white head slowly reduced to a thick, solid white film that left a great lacing. Strong aroma of straw, cooked corn, and a slight mold Ė a dry haystack on a warm summer day. The aroma is clearly one of the foremost aspects of drinking this beer and one gets the feeling you either love it or hate it. Soft yet clearly present carbonation with a slightly oily palate. A very appealing and substantive taste of corn and muted clove, undercooked bread, long lasting wheat finish. Almost no bitterness. An ideal relaxing and refreshing beer for a hot summer day. Overall a very well made beer. Canít go wrong here at all.

Bottle. Hazy pale straw color with creamy white head. Nose of sour citrus, lemon and orange, and some subtle spice. Tart, tangy citrus and yeast flavor, with a nice drying finish, but a little thinner than I had hoped for. Tasty stuff.

Hazy light yellow color with soapy white head. Aroma of coriander and orange is pervasive. Taste is mostly of orange peel with a nice coriander background. This is one of my favorites.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
White beer with a medium head when poured and bottle swirled. Very spicy scent, but a sweet flavour. The scent becomes overbearing toward the end. Not by favorite Belgian, but still a good beer.
