A bit of astringency and some lite fruits are immediately evident. Pear and apple notes with a bit of grass and mild spice, possibly seeds of paradise. Thin and watery mouthfeel with a bit of hop grass and residual sugar in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice looking, cloudy honey colored brew with a fine-bubbled, off-white head.
A sweet, herbacious, floral scent....the more I sniff, the more this reminds me of a sweet, flowery Hefeweizen.
A bit sweet with an unusual "After Shave" quality with the alcohol and the spicy-floral tastes. Seems to lack the depth of other Belgians, not bad but not quite up to par with many of it’s peers.
I’d try this again, with a "harder" pour to get rid of some of the carbonation.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2013 33cl bottle. Pours a clear golden with a little white head; Nose : Bubblegum fresh caramel malts with a yeasty aromas. Banana. Sip : Full, oil body with nice carbonation. Strawberry, banana and pears sweet notes with following yeast sourness. Ending with a little bitterness. Fresh. Overall : surprisingly exiting beer. Another tripple like rich beer but much more fresh. It reminds me of a lighter version of Tripple Karmeliet.

This beer has a blond body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the a bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is fruity with a light bitter spicy afther tast.

Draught. Clear, pale amber with white head. Yeasty aroma. Light to medium body with lots of carbonation. The taste is complex with a sweet and sour foretaste with banana notes moving via a strong spicey phase to a good bitter finish with banana and ester notes. A lovely beer.
