Excellent belgian. right amount of spices and flavors. It started out spicey but not over powering and moved into a mixture of banana and strawberry. As the bottles contents dwindled it took on the characteristics of a honey ale. the final gulp was bitter. For me its perfectly balanced and totally drinkable. Had it with some smoked cheddar while watching ’the three amigos’....yes...i know i suck.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2003 i had to rerate this one. without trying to, i had this a few times in belgium and liked it more each time. i started to choose it over duvel in pubs with a very limited range. looks good, manages to be quite sweet but not too sticky

Easy to drink and very common in Belgium. Not my favorite but I would usually throw into a night of drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks and aroma are similar to previous rating. This time I got a touch more floral nectar sweetness in the aroma and flavour. Alcohol also more evident this time. Pleasant drinking but relatively characterless for a Belgian Ale.
Second Rating: 15 August 2002 3.1 Huge rocky island head over an amber-orange clear colour and some nice lace. Mild fruity hops, malt and cheesy yeast aroma. Medium body, Well balanced light bitter-sweet start, sweeter middle and finish.
First Rated 14/6/2002: Doel Holland, 3.4

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2007 Easy to drink is right. Kind of like a starter Belgian Ale. Rich head. Great golden colour. Very sweet without being overpowering.

Nice clear golden pour, white head which quickly fades to a good lace. Aroma is sweet, maybe cotton candy-like. Initial taste is banana-juice all the way, with a little spice in the end, possible a hint of alcohol. Overall a fantastic brew.

A very pleasant but heavy beer. Lovely golden appearance misleads you into thinking its just another lager-which it isn’t! A rich taste but after a few sips you realise that this is not one to mess with.

A light tasting ale maybe a little too light . Its a smooth clean and refreshing ale.
