rajendra82 (952) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2004
The beer came in a 330 ml brown longneck bottle that had a nice art deco label. The serving temperature of 46˚ F on the back label is too low in my opinion. I drank mine at 65 ˚ F to bring out more flavor nuances. The body was slightly hazy golden pale with a medium but constant carbonation. The head was rich and rocky and left a good deal of lace. Aroma was sharp and yeasty with some floral tones. The taste was well attenuated, lemony tart, and quite dry, with a lot of Belgian farmhouse funk. There was also a peppery pungency to the aftertaste. The alcohol was very well hidden and would never have been guessed to be as high as it was (8% ABV). This was one of the first arrivals on July 1st in Georgia, and I picked it up that day. Ironically now we have such abundance of selection here, I am finally getting around to it. Good things come to those who wait I guess.

TChrome (1417) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Typical Belgian blonde in appearance, medium golden with a big white head that is very nicely retained. Aroma is yeasty, but also has some light farmhouse funk also and some light hoppiness. Flavor is sweet, light hops and bone dry. Another enjoyable Belgian Ale.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2004
Big creamy head, with a cloudy, almost wheat beer look. Slightly sweet spiced aroma. Body is a nice balance of spice, citrus notes and sweetness to balance the alcohol. A very enjoyable brew.

Kinz (3279) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Hazy dark yellow, hint of orange, aggressive head. Yeasty aroma with some interesting notes of fruit and spice. Flavor matched, with a good blast of orange and tangerine dominating before a dry, spicy finish. A very nice beer.
