Large head on top of a hazy golden pour. The flavor is that of a spiced-up lager. It has a bit of grass, citrus, and spiciness.

on tap @ Sergio’s / Louisville The appearance and the banana malt aroma draw me right in. Cloudy rich gold with a contoured 2" head that finally settles to a thick head cover, star cluster specks of lace. Taste is sweet malt and butter rum with just a touch of spice and banana. Taste becomes richer and fuller through the palate, adding a light bittering and alcohol warmtyh in a lingering malty finish. Satisfying and enjoyable, worth seeking out.

snuif (4) - BELGIUM - JAN 14, 2014 does not count
aroma :bloemen uitzicht:blond bier met mooie witte schuimkraag smaak:tinten van citrus en meloen niet zeer speciaal maar lekker blond bier het is zeker de moeite om de brouwerij te bezoeken in de buurt van dinant. de brouwketels worden nog steeds gestookt met hout,zeer gezellige accommodatie en mogelijkheid om de caracole bieren te proeven

[ASPETTO] color ambra chiaro araciato, leggermente velata, schiuma bianca, compatta, buona presenza e persistenza [OLFATTO] malti in prima linea, miele, biscottato, un leggero fruttale e lieviti. [GUSTO] inizio con una media dolcezza, biscotto, caramello, segue un accenno di frutta matura, ancora lieviti e un finale leggermente alcolico [TEXTURE] corpo medio basso, media carbonazione, sensazione watery [COMMENTO FINALE] ale belga nel complesso piacevole, anche se non brilla; rimane piuttosto spenta e piatta, soprattutto nell’ambito delle note di contorno; un fruttato carente e poco articolato, luppolatura che non da spunti interessanti e leggerina anche di corpo. quindi un ale poco strong : semplice, pulita ma un po’ sottotono.

kevinsenn (1065) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle shared by ycrz - thanks! Light fruity spicy aroma. Taste is fruity and floral, with some hibiscus notes. Quite nice! Plus the label has a snail with a saxophone, and there’s nothing wrong with that!

andrewturba (962) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Pours a fairly clear gold with a quarter inch of rocky white head and decent legs. Aroma is fruity esters(pears and apples), spicy/perfumey alcohol, and floral hops. Flavour is fruity esters(mostly pear), spicy phenols, peppery, alcohol all nicely married together, low-medium bitterness, and high carbonation. Enjoyable brew.
