It’s hazy golden with a huge, white, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of citrus, yeast, malt and fruit. The flavour is moderate sweet with a light, dry bitterness and notes of candy sugar, citrus, caramel, yeast and the finish is rather long with a dry bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 30, 2011 Nice looking foamy head an golden clear body. Lots of herbs in aroma; earthy and a hint of alcohol. Strong bitterness, but still fresh. Perfect carbonation, oily texture. Delightful beer. Bottle looks good to, so a nice gift as well. (Cost 2,50 EUR)
Re-rate: found it a little astringent this time around. Still nice but a sourness that you’d rather have the beginning of the night than in the end...

Bottle. Thanks to hobbersr for sharing! Pours cloudy yellow with a snow white head, 1-finger thick. Reduces to a very persistent skim, poor/spotty lacing. Nose is bubblegum, pilsner malt, quite mild, perfumed hops. Hops ae much more pronounced in the mouth, plus banana, bubblegum, lemon meringue, yeast, a bit short on the finish. Somewhere between Piraat and Duvel. Good.

Bottle from the Downers Grove, IL, Binny’s Beverage Depot: Nice bottle. The beer has a somewhat hazed golden body with a BIG sudsy/rocky head that evaporates in chunks leaving gobs of lace on the glass. The aroma is a bit too sweet for me - honey & rock candy with bananas & peaches. The flavor’s much nicer, light bready malt, fruity, with a touch of floral/citric bitterness. It finishes on a honeyed note, but then delivers a pippish bitter punch. Not bad, but I think if my schnozz was a bit less stuffed, I’d like it less because of the aroma.

A bottle that made it’s way back in my luggage from Belgium. Purchased at 2Be in Brugges. The bottle was definitely fresh. Pours yellow with a large rocky head. The aroma is sweet, herbal and grassy. The flavor has honey, grapefruit, grass, candi sugar and a nice bitter finish. Quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Swingtop from Dranken Geers. Brilliant gold with a bleached white meringue of head stringing the glass with lace; only a very fine veil of sediment visible even after the bottle has been fully upturned. Strange and pleasant concoction oscillating between honeyed Belgian sweetness and lean piney hop; aroma pure polished tabletop, gingerbread, grass cuttings and marmalade- green, orange, jammy and resinous. Flavour soap and spruce; bittersweet and coniferous with bags of wood sap and a hint of disinfectant. Zero alcohol. Fine, surprising brew that proves a beer doesn’t have to have 140 IBUs and taste like breakfast juice to be hoppy, in a sweetened N.German pils-meets-Tripel kind of way, admittedly. Unusual and slightly beautiful.

Pours a nice, thick light cheddar yellow with a dense, frothy white head. Aroma sweet, raisiny modeling glue with a hint of banana and light clove. Flavor is bready lemon-peach with a hint of vegetable in the finish. Slight alcohol bite in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Not a bad beer; lighter in taste than the ABV indicates.

Drink at Leuven. Nice Golden colour, it came with one big glass and a another shot glass which includes the last part of the beer.
I actually taste them both them and mix them. Well nice herby and fruity aromas with little touch of honey and aromatic herbes.
The taste is hoppy and slightly bitter but a mild finish ...
Very nice beer could be a nice night starter..
