Bit more fruit and yeast in the aroma and flavour than I had caught the first time. Not sure where I got the coriander from.
Oct 2000 - Not much body. Coriandery? and spices. Didn't enjoy it very much I prefer the Leffe Brune.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nicely golden with good carbonation. Nice creamy head. Smell of herbs, spices, banan and yeast. Lies smooth in mouth with it's creamyness and drinkability. Herbs, yeast, banana with a slightly bready ending. A good start beer for beginners who is interested in Belgo's. It's too simple for my tastebuds, though

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2010 Bright yellow golden, diminishing head, no lace. Estery nose--mostly banana with hints of earth and cloves. Appropriately (slightly) sticky mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Very slightly tart. Definitely sweet flavor--like the aroma, mostly banana and clove. Nice.

very smooth and creamy beer, popular in France. A bit too much spice overpowers the natural flavors, but otherwise a good belgian ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled: Golden coloured. White medium lasting head. Aroma is yeasty, malty and light spiced. Flavour is yeasty and has some spices present. Alcahol is surprisingly notable. Has a clean and dry finish. This might be good as a introduction to belgian ales.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2004 Relatively bland for a Belgian, but still not bad. Seemed to be missing that "bigness" that I've come to enjoy in a Belgian as far as flavor and body are concerned.

From tap, golden yellow color. A bit of malt and hops in aroma, sweet candy sugar and a little spicy flavor. Medium to full body for a blond, I found this pretty enjoyable.
