This is one of the better white beers I’ve had. Even though I’m not a fan of this style of beer I can tell this was made with quality. Has a citrus aroma with wood like hints like it says in the description (something different), and malts. Nice light fruity flavor. Not too much of a bitter aftertaste in the end. Not too bad of a brew for a white beer. Good job.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - NOV 26, 2008
First beer at the Great Decatur Beer Tasting Festival in Georgia on 10/18/08. This one is a winner. Golden in color and a yeasty nose. The flavor was dominated by yeast and light fruit, apple, pear and citrus. Dry finish. Listed here as a Biere de Garde, but reminded me of a Saison.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 21, 2008
750 ml bottle from Beverage Warehouse in Winooski, VT (November 2008), served at cellar temperature in a Duvel glass. Big fluffy lasting head laces generously when it fails atop the translucent amber-gold body....grassy, initially pil-like fresh aroma on more exploration offers some funkiness, but also a touch of skunk-like unpleasantness....the body is moderately sweet to start, some tart notes coming in midpalate, with a lightly sour, milky character towards the finish, a bit of vegetal character....I get the feeling that the wheat and especially the rice did not favor this beer; on the whole, so-so.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2008
(750ml bottle, BB 03/28/09) Pours a clear golden body with a medium-sized off-white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma of apple, caramel, hay, alcohol, metallic, black pepper, and mustiness. Flavor of alcohol, yeast, caramel, and apple.

TwoDudes (77) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Nice beer. Pours a brite light orage amber color. Head is fluffy and lingers. Not sure why this beer wasn’t bottle conditioned. Not as much carbonation as I’d expect from a BdG. Nice hop spiciness. Tart fruit and a slight funkiness. Overall, a good beer.

jaghana (3808) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle 33. This is a typical Belgian style beer. Good triple blond beer very sweet, quite similar to a Duvel but more fruity.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. US bottle at 8.0% ABV. Clear golden body with a tight white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of hay, caramel, pepper and apple. Taste is a little light struck or skunky, with dry fruits, caramel and kind of sugary. Lively carbonation.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma of apple. Flavor was actually kinda boring, very faint apple and signs of caramel. Mouth feel is light body, high carbonation. Overall, I thought this was kinda boring in flavor....kinda bland.

Bottle@Home. Malty, apple, some veggies and a hint of citrus aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace. Very sweet, light bitter, very malty, apple, just a hint of citrus in the finish. Full and smooth. Flavorful, well balanced, filling.
