rutabaga (1) - USA - NOV 22, 2004 does not count
Perfectly balanced hops. Pleasant note of lemon. Not nearly as sweet as other ales of this style. An outstanding offering.

CapFlu (4720) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 (750ml bottle) Pours a lasting, creamy white head and a cloudy Hefe-coloured body. Very sweet and lemony. Flavours of lemon, orange peel and coriander. The finish is dry and mildly tart. This beer should be the style-standard to compare with! I would gladly drink this all night long. Thanks DumDum for the opportunity.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2004
Light flowery notes and citrusy protrusions induce a pleasant bitterness to peacefully rise and remain within restrained levels...Doughy yeast presence is definitely reminiscent of the Unibroue yeast and it too, aptly remains present yet subdued...A wonderfully drinkable while flavorful spring portrait...

beerbuzzmontreal (3488) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2004
Cloudy blonde color with yeast in suspension and a thin white head. Aroma of fruits and spices. Flavor of fruits, spices and yeast, sweet finish. Light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Better than I thought it would be.

tiggmtl (4547) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2004
Sweet cookie dough aroma with notes of lemon. Yeasty. Clear golden, slightly hazy body with fizzy, sparkling white head that recedes to thin cover. Simple straight-forward lemon cookie-dough flavour with light spiciness in the finish. Soft mouth and gently prickling carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and a gang of bierophoux.

Rastacouere (6155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2004
Fully diminishing head, mostly clear golden. From the aroma, it smells full bodied, malty. Very yeasty, a touch of alcohol. Peppercorn like yeast, quite dominating, lots of coriander too. While the taste is not very complex, I enjoyed the lactic/malt/spice(coriander) and citrusy balance. Well-made belgian ale. Lightly biting carbonation. Medium to full body. Pleasant.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2004
Aroma of yeast, citrus and malt, golden amber, pours a large rocky white head, tiny lace. Flavours are yeast, grapefruit, malt backbone and some breadiness. Medium bodied, complex, pleasant mouthfeel, dry. Fine rendition!
