UPDATED: APR 21, 2014 Just ok. . Very refreshing and suitable for hot days though :P too commercial for me.

Great beer for the lighter summer varieties. Can get cloying but excellent in moderation or with food.

Absolutbeerginer (27) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Bière blanche (de forment) belge. De fermentation haute, légère en alcool, non filtrée, cette bière développe au nez des notes terreuse (levure), d’agrumes, de citron vert, de biscuit au beurre, d’épices, de basilic frais et autres herbes. Mais pas cet arôme de banane typique dans les blanches allemandes. Très pétillante, au corps fin et léger, elle est plutôt crémeuse et douce. C’est le malt et les levures qui dominent ici. De couleur jaune clair, trouble, et à la mousse très généreuse et persistante, elle est pour moi plus belle à regarder qu’à boire. Mais, à l’apéro, elle reste tout de même très agréable et légère.

Very interesting beer, with a well balanced taste (and content) of yeast. Fruity and a little bit spicy taste.

AndrewGeoff (27) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2005
Cloudy, very pale straw-coloured beer with a good frothy white head. Very nice lacing and doesn’t overdo the carbonation. I was a bit worried to try this one after reading some of the descriptions since I normally don’t like overly spiced beers – (How many of you ratebeerians really go in the kitchen often enough to know what coriander smells like?) – but the citrus and spice isn’t overplayed at all. Very soft mouth feel and nice tangy aftertaste. Overall it certainly refreshes but it does lack enough character to really be one of the greats.

Crisp, refreshing taste, but distinctly alcoholic. Very nice balance of citrus and chocolate tastes. A pleasant beer to be enjoyed on a summer afternoon.

A uniquely satisfying beer. Immediate hints of spice and cloves. Slight citrus flavor that is both refreshing and substantial. Crisp finish with a sweet aftertaste. A beer than needs to be tried multiple times to truly appreciate.

Cerveja muito saborosa. Boa formação de espuma, aromas cítricos. Sabor leve e prolongado.
