UPDATED: JAN 7, 2006 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a deep gold with a big, white, rocky head. Thick lacing. Lots of floaties. Nose is spicy and a touch yeasty. Lovely thick body, flavors of yeast, sweet malt and orange. A bit sweet. Finish is slightly dry, and the spiciness hangs with you for quite some time. A great holiday-type beer. Good work, you little Belgian gnomes!

Beautiful pale straw in color, with nice lace and head that lingers. Nose of doughy,yeasty, spice and sweetness. Rich and creamy mouthfeel, slightly sweet but nicely balanced with a spicy finish that lingers but is not cloying. A world class brew.

Good - butI’ve had better Belgian Ales. Foamy white head, nice golden, cloudy appearance, fruity aroma and decent taste. However, I had a Weyerbacher Blanche earlier today (which is a similar style) and I liked that a lot more (for a lot less cost).

Bottle at Cafe Bruxelles in Manhattan--strong aroma of yeast, ginger, and orange peel, more in the taste with a rich body and layers/waves of yeast, mild hops and spice rolling into a long fruity finish.

Smell is incredibly strong, very nice. Flavor is like bread crust, very yeasty and sweet toasted malt. Enjoyable, but the taste is a bit stale.

Bottle. Smells alcoholish, vaguely like can sauce(?!), real funky yeast. Pours blond orange with a mountainous root beer float head. Sweet malts, mix of light spice, quite pleasant. Tastes like perfumey pear. Nice hops.

Big bottle at Volo. Nice yeasty aroma. Dark yellow, small white head. Strong lemon citrus, yeast, taste. Alcohol as well, quite well balanced. Light hops in the short finish. Subtle spices abound. Very easy to drink or sip. Nice stuff.
