3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold in color with a white bubbly head. A bit fruity and light with a classic belgian taste. Not bad as a session ale in the Belgian style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, soft, smooth and creamy; malts are a little sugary, with dry hops and spices. A nice light Belgian - would be fine for everyday drinking and with food. On tap at The Sharp Edge, Pittsburgh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Golden colour with a large, white head. Lightly fruity aroma, with a grassy and orangey hop element. Light to medium body, moderately carbonated. Not a flavour powerhouse, but notes of fruit, some spice, and a late, dry hoppiness. There are many beers that are better, but many more that are worse. If all beers were mass-produced, this would be pretty good; but they aren’t, and this isn’t. Weak in character and complexity, but not offensive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark gold body topped with a fluffy and quick-fading brew. Fruity (mainly banana and apple) and lightly alcoholized aroma which is confirmed in the mouth. The alcohol is well hidden, carbonation is present without being exagerated, and the final is sweet. Easily available, that beer is an excellent introduction to beer-tasting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice brew indeed. Pours a dark gold body with a very fluffy white head. A slight smokey aroma that gives way to an extremely well hidden fruity boquet of aromas. Taste is similar to a nice wheat, bananas and apples. Full bodied and very smooth.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2004 Re-rate Mouthfeel a little thin the seond time around.<P>
Pale malt and hop aroma, with orange peel. Poured golden blonde color with a foamy, airy head. Taste is breadlike and sweet, almost all up front - abrupt finish. Its soft, oily smoothness in the palate makes this a good session choice for belgiphiles. Next time i'm looking for something refreshing - i'll reach for a leffe not a heffe.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours a medium yellow with a bright white frothy head. Strong yeast scent with almost lemon citrus notes. A little sugar in the background.
First taste was quite yeasty but smooth. Tastes like most Belgian beer does to me.
The finish was very slightly bitter with a sourish citrus favour to it. The palate was doughy yeast till the end.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light copper brown, creamy off-white head. Complex herbal fruity aroma, maybe horse radish. I am not a big fan of Belgian ales, so malty leather taste is not so enjoyable. Taste is also fruity.
