Mildly tart, the first tastes were coriander topped with a little black pepper. Some soft fruits in the sweet malt (peachy?). The finish was strong with some uninvited alcohol. Aroma was not as pleasant as the taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This one has a cloudy, pale yellow color with a big, lingering white head. It has a very nice aroma of yeast and hops with hints of orange and coriander. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy, with a full body and light carbonation. The flavor is lightly fruity and hoppy up front with a mildly malty finish that has hints of spices and yeast. Another excellent Belgian ale, this one is dangerously drinkable and quite exquisite.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Holy S**t! I untwisted the wire cage and the cork almost took my head off! I am exspecting alot of carbonation in this. Oh yes and I am right, pours mostly foam. Beer is very light in color. Huge white head. Aroma of flowers and salty / seaweed. Taste is lightly spiced but rather bland, pretty much the same experience with Leffe Blonde. Light with a dry finish. No award winner, that is for sure.

Hints of esters, some spices and alcohol. Clovey and warm. Clean and crisp and citrucy. lightly hopped finish, smooth and rich initially, bubbly palate cleans up well.
