3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours into a rich golden colour with a creamy, long head. An extremely good ale, well balanced with a delectable creaminess.

3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled from Trader Joe’s. Pours a nice blond with large off-white head. Nothing special in the smell. Tastes delicious though with rich dough and honey/lemon. Extremely drinkable as well with a full flavor and creamy texture. No bitterness and very smooth. A definite rebuy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth and drinkable. Nice dough/malt/almost honey aroma. Fantastic head, looks like concrete. Slight caramel malt hint, with a very subtle hint of fruit, maybe orange flavor coming from my guess is hops. Very clean, fresh, and crisp finish. Has nice mouthfeel for such a light beer, cudos to the brewery for that!

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.

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.

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.
