4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a straw yellow with a 3/4" head. Nice lively carbonation rises as the head settles down a bit. Decent sticking. Peach and some citrus with a peppery spice in the nose. Very distinct odor of earthiness. Distinct flavor of straw and dry hop with sharp grainy spice with a mellow/subdued kick of orange rind in the after taste. Not as much fruit as I would have thought. Very light in body, smooth and clean. Very drinkable especially with a low ABV. This beer is refreshing and crisp.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2009 750mL Bottle. Noses in a very cologne heavy sweet cool scent. Dew-like. Hop oriented, but well blended with yeast character. Pours a brassy golden with slight tinge and a head in rocky, well-lacing white. Flavor is rich. A fresh burst of rich, grassy-almost-piney hop character. Fresh and slightly tangy. Then a long sweep into a real quality Pilsener malt character. It’s just so delicate. Great balanced. As the beer warms and breathes, it expresses more malt nuance and some delicate honey-like character that become real palpable in the finish. Delicious. Balanced, refreshing, complex and drinkable. All you can ask for in beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy of fishingnet. Pours clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is crisp and fresh with a grainy maltiness, a citrus lemon bite along with raisins and prune notes. The taste is much the same starting with grainy malt notes and moving quickly toward tart citrus lemon acidity and countered by mild prune and raisin notes in the background. It ends with lingering citrus tartness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dusky gold color with a scant head. Kind of shimmers in the glass, despite the low alcohol. Spicy and malty as you would expect of a Belgian ale on the nose, but flavors are less complex and a little grainy. Clean finish and aggressive hops to its credit.
