Dayton, OH AleFest:The head was small sized, white, fine sized bubbles that mostly diminished.The body was cloudy and uncarbonated.This beer's hue was pale yellow and the nose was lightly malty, hoppy and also of banana.The flavor in my opinion was sour and sweet.This beer's mouthfeel was smooth, thin, watery and light bodied.There was only a fair amount of lacing on the sides of my glass.

This brew poured a small head of finely sized off-white mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a hazy yellow colored uncarbonated body. It had a floral aroma and a smooth mouthfeel from start to finish. Its flavor contained notes of fruit and coriander.

This Belgian blond ale pours a hazy, bubbly, golden color with a medium sized, lingering, rocky white head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty with hints of orange, pear, apricot, and peach. It has a medium body with lively carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is very fruity and citrusy with lots of orange and yeast hints. The finish is slightly dry but with a nice lingering fruitiness and a touch of malt sweetness. A very refreshing and enjoyable ale.

Best until september '01. Cloudy with only a slight head. Sherry aroma with malt and hazlenuts. Sweetish, rather vinous flavor with grape juice and vanilla. Medium bodied, the texture is staring to get thinner. Nice, fairly complex beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very blond cloudy beer with a medium creamy white head. The aroma is hop, lemon and yest. The yeast is dominating. Rather lively, slightly bitter, yeasty and spicy taste. A bit too yesty for me. Nevertheless it is a good well balanced beer.
