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 (4545) - 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 (6164) - 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!

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Orange Haze. Astringent nose, almost sour, with notes of vanilla, pear, banana, tropical fruits and herbs. Sweet, astringent and fruity with notes of apples, pine, orange and honey. Dry, alcoholic and quite yeasty. Not very good.

FtWorthBrew (105) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2004
Nice frothy head. Tasted of lemon and citrus. lots of gas in this one. suprisingly little alcohol flavor for 8%. Lighter than Nostrodamus on complexity and alcohol flavor. still very good overall.

gabbledbabble (60) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Liquid caramel. It looks like itís ready to dip apples. Milk white head. Initial pour went to my wife in a tulip at 45 F. Looks like itís climbing out the glass, purty. I smell naturally fermented apple cider vinegar. Pine resin. Sweet and sour. Light with carbonation. Uurgghh. I like, but itís a bit flat tasting. Kinda like a pale ale on a green pine plank. Itíd go nicely with a cured salmon, or a salmon grilled on plank with a cream sauce. Itís okay outta the bottle, but I bet itís mucho better fresh from a pitcher in a pub within the home region. GAB

A bright belgian ale, pours citrusy with a large frothy white head. Body is a hazy pear color. Taste is of honey, lemon, lime, and something else. It is quite good.
