3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear blond with very little head. I can’t put my finger on it, but it has a distinct taste, best when a little warm. Very easy drink, not much after-taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is that of a good wheat beer; very rich in bananas and soft fruitiness. Light, but not crisp. No acidity whatsoever (thumbs up on this count!) Slightly sweet, a tiny bit of bitterness. Very balanced and refined tasting. Not particularly refreshing however; made me quite thirsty. None of the spice or citrus that is present in some of these Belgian ales, and frankly I thought it tasted a lot better without the spice. Definitely one of the better beers of this type that I have tried.

Got this one in a "Best of Belgium" 18-pack. A beautiful beer - clear honey colored with a fine white head. Very nice aroma, like a sweet dough. Actually feels "heavy" on the palate. Drinks extremely easy. A light sweetness balances the crispness. An actual bittersweet aftertaste. A superb beer.

Clear, golden/amber appearance with a large, white head and good lacing. Yeasty aroma; some mild fruitiness. Smooth, sweet taste, slightly spicy with light grain flavors. Short lived finish turned a little bitter.

Found this one for 1.69 in the cooler of the local rip and run. what a deal. Pours a nice gold with a ripe headx that smells of crisp bright spice. Body is malty and awake with a quick strong hop finish. Cant beat this one with a stick.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 Bottle, best before date 12-20-2007 Wow, I found my new favorite everyday beer !!! Beautiful golden color. Creamy texture, very, very, smooth. Carmel, honey bread dough. Very easy to drink. Will be keeping a case of this on hand at all times.

A nice belgian with a fine malt nose, with some honey and bakery. Clean flavor with a right bitter finish. Beatiful brilliant orange appearance. Not bad at all if you can’t get any better.

This is is regular to Holland, lots of places serve this good beer, very smooth, maybe too smooth. Felt like I could drink this forever.

Round and smooth, but with enough Beligan charater to appeal to thos who want to go beyond lager. Rather sweet, some hops, but little sourness. If the choise is limited, this is quite fine. In most countries we’d kill to have a macro brew a beer like this!

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2007 Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass. Tart scent. Pissish-looking, with continued carbonation. Formed little to no head! Tastes just like overripened (rotten) watermelon. Tastes bad. Strong and lasting command of the mouth. I chose not to finish the entire glass.
