3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A clear golden/orange beer with a thick fluffy white head. Not very aromatic, but slight fruity and Belgo-yeasty aroma. Limited flavors; banana, mild spices, candy-suger and yeast. Low hop level. Sweet mouthfeel. Not bad, but not quite so charming as I remember when tasting it the first time in the early nineties. 0,5 points for nostalgia...

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 Great brew. This beer got me into drinking beer. Unique taste of spice and fruity flavors. Tastes very old, which compliments its age nicely. Very drinkable with a slight spicy and bitter kick. I would definitely recommend this beer, one of my favorites.

I enjoyed this beer. Golden color, smooth going down. Recommend drinking on a hot summer day while lounging on the deck. When your planning on having more than one...this is the Belgian Ale for you.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle pours a clear, light orange body with a thick head of micro-bubbles that leaves decent leggy lacing. Very active carbonation. The nose is only a slight but clean lemon, grass and banana combination. The taste is more complex than expected, actually quite all over the map. It’s both sweet and slightly spicy at the same time, with a plum and apricot taste being mostly dominant at the beginning, then fading into a wonderfully smooth "dirtier" earthy taste that leaves no bad aftertaste. The palate is smooth and silky, everything good mouthfeel should contain. This ale is extremely balanced.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2007 33cl bottle. Aroma root beer, spicy. Pours bronze with small white head and strong carbonation, flavours peppery spices, sweet and hard to pin down - really quite good. Warming alcohol tangible, very refreshing and light. Wasn’t disappointed.

In many bars throughout Belgium, there are only two or three beers available and this is the better of them. Because of the corporate omnipresence, it’s easy to forget that this beer--while unremarkable--is solid. Creamy head does last. Aroma is faint vanilla and caramel. Vanilla and spices stronger in flavor, with light malt in the background and low hop presence. Too sweet, but quaffable.
