3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice golden color with a floral rose aroma. Some honey notes in both the taste and the aroma. Again another sweet malt beer, but better tasting than some of the others I have tried.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Active gold color with some shiny orange and a big white head that produces nice lacing. The aroma is a tad sour with light malt and a hint of yeast. Also some nice fruit in the clean aroma. Velvete smooth feel, sweet malts and a sizeable yeast feel and flavor. Good clean sweet finish.

My favorite of the not-so-strong beers if freshly tapped. Very smooth, accessible taste, a bit sweet.

Now available as a regular in Wetherspoons. Great ale. Warm and spicy with an attractive glow. Very refreshing. And quite heady. This will catch up on you. Not a session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale color, light head, moderate carbonation and no lacing. Nose of pale malt, citrusy yeast and crisp hopping. The flavor is watery and crisp with bitterness & tangy yeast. A bit too clean for the style with sharp alcohol and yeast notes. Finishes creamy and acidic but nicely balanced for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold with a white foamy head and sheets of lace. Lots of yeast and sourdough with lemon citrus. Grassy hops and musky malts. Some notes of spice. Lemon citrus again with tons of coriander and yeast. Some banana esters. Sourdough again with a touch of pilsener malts. Fruity and spicy tail.

Had on draft at local pub. Clear golden yellow with a small head. Aroma was a bit of banana some light maltiness and yeastiness. Flavor was light maltiness with a belgian yeastiness. Medium bodied with a slight yeast aftertaste. This is a very refreshing belgian ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Bottle Pours a light brown, golden color with a large fluffy white head. Blocky lacing adhears to the sides. Classic belgian, light spice notes. Some yeasty, slightly musty aromas as well. Flavors are about what I expected, light malts and easy on the hops. Light fruit flavors, maybe a little banana and bubble-gum. Quite lively carbonation and a fairly bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle, BB 25APR05. Pours a very fizzy yellow...smells of banana, maybe a touch of orange...drinks with some light malt, a dose of yeasty fruitiness, and a dry, slightly bitter finish. Pretty decent beer...sorta like a really good paint by the numbers "artist" nothing special or original by any means, but drinkable and enjoyable to some degree.
