WoodersonMB (26) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - NOV 18, 2012
Spice and citrus dominate the nose. Pours a hazy orange with a quickly dissipating 1/2 inch creamy head. Some really nice alcoholic warmth happening with the spice and citrus flavors coming through. Loving the carbonation too - very active. I think it’s wrong that I don’t buy this on a regular basis. Great beer!

shaynsawchuk (651) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
330 mL bottle. Pours clear golden with a two finger cap of white head. Apple, white pepper and honey on the nose, some apricot and vanilla, sweet cereal malt. Balanced malty sweet with subtle spicy hopping on the finish. Full bodied and full carbonation with a sticky finale. Very nice, but doesn’t shake a stick at their Dobbelen IPA.

Pours deep orange with a fluffy white head. Aromas of apricot and honey, with some yeast. Taste is overwhelmingly sweetish and with a dry end. Fine carbonation. Nice.

Fantastic!!! I love it soooooo much. Bottle is cute. It leveaves you with a sweetness that lingers on your tongue and lips. Um...the taste is like cream!?:) Anyway, it has a very nice palate!

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
Smells great, lees, belgian spices, coriander, light malt. Hazy golden with lingering white head. Fairly neutral and simple flavors, but well balanced. Coriander and belgian spices upfront, a light malt sweetness to finish. Medium bodied and average carbonation. A well balanced, if not overly complex beer.

Sabor levemente amargo e um pouco frutado. Aparência dourada e aroma discretamente agradável.

vikingguy (916) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Hazy amber-gold. Banana and clove aroma. Taste- rich malt, sweet and fruity notes. More banana and clove on top of a wheaty malt base. Fizzy mouthfeel. Slight alcohol burn. Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sudomorph (893) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2015 330ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a one and a half finger, white head that thins to a finger but lingers the entire glass and leaves modest lacing. Carbonation streaming from the middle of the glass. Aroma is classic Belgian. Bubblegum, candy sugar, spice, yeast, and a nice bit of farmhouse funk. Taste is balanced. Starts with candy sugar, touch of bubblegum, slight peppery spice, and a drawnout ending. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a near effervescent carbonation and a dry finish. Overall a classic. Everything is there and I want more.

Achel (141) - GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
Hazy golden with a nice frothy head. Fresher, finer - almost fruity - than the McChouffe. Some citrusy notes to keep things dry. And again only a discreet bitternes, yet enough for balance

Canmoore (327) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
Pours a hazy orange, with a thin white head. Aroma has notes of citrus, coriander, and spices. Tasting notes include citrus, yeast, spice, and a slight hoppy finish!
