3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter, golden with very little head. Looks very much like a glass of apple juice. This one has a very bready taste with notes of citrus and yeast and a bitter finish. Very light, very drinkable, but lacks that special something to distinguish it from other Belgians.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Wheat, spices and lemon grass notes in the aroma. Golden appearance with a pure white lively head. Slight rich cinnamon taste, with spice notes. Great texture. Fruit in there also. Not a bad beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This pours a clear straw colored beer, with a thin head. The smell is a hint of sweetness. It has a hint of sweetness, and a hint of classic Belgium style. This beer is almost all hints however, with something lacking in it. Not a bad one to introduce people to, and not a bad one to have on hand, but overall, just a hint above average.

Had on tap and in bottle many times. I like this better than Chimay, but does not come close to rivaling Kwak or Saxo. Has a mild fruit and med. hoppy flavor.

On tap at the Winking Lizard in Columbus. Served in the proper glass that I got to take home. YAY! Nice golden color, good head, smelled sweet and citrusy. Very easy to drink, some fruit, honey, apples perhaps. Very drinkable! I liked it a lot!

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 Draft in Leffe glass - Cambridge UK. Nice bubblegum, fruit aroma balanced with exactly the right spices and hops. Thank God I found this beer on tap amidst the wasteland of bland industrial beer &#40;Green King, etc&#41; pub outlets found in this part of England.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a slender 11.2 capped bottle with a blurb and best before date on the back label, 09.02.08.
Poured a clear reddish orangey golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin creamy, sudsy lacing, minimal amount of laced sticking.
Aromas of bubble gum, yellow pears, a light sweet grainy maltiness and herbal hops.
Good carbonation and a crisp, dryish, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel.
Tastes of dry, tart fruitiness that meshes with the sweet honey, grainy malts, the alcohol has a stale, sterile flavor, softly warming in the palate, bready yeast, medicinal herbal hops with a biting bitterness towards the end, and a dry malty, herbal finish.
Well, I’ve seen this on the shelves of liquor stores for years and I’ve finally tried, for me, it was a slightly above average Belgian pale ale, passable drinkability, but I won’t be returning to this anytime soon.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
sweet sugar, hint of cinnamon and nutmeg
slight alcohol aroma coming thru
wheat malt aroma, kind of caramlly also.
only fruit i can detect is a slight apricot/peach aroma but faint. It’s the sweetness that reminds me on tinned apricots.
I would love to call it floral but would love all flowers to smell like this!
clean malty acidic,
