Smells like hops and line, taste is sticky, honey sweet with hop taste but no bitterness. Some spice too, clove. Pleasant stuff.

A below average Belgian style. Pours a slightly golden color, with a lot, maybe too much head. Took 10 minutes before we could drink it. Not much smell, like a Sweeter Coors. Taste is very much the same, although it's thicker and creamier then it looks. Nothing sticks out. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. Pours light gold with a medium head. Aroma is light lemon and candy sugars. Taste is sweet to start with a straw finish. Prickly carbonation.

Tried this on tap at Lucky Pie in Denver, CO. Great Belgian strong ale, Belgian yeast aroma and flavor, nice mouth feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There is some trace of the higher alcohol content here, but it was not distracting or overpowering at all. I think the fact that the flavor was so mellow was a bit of a disappointment...no "WOW" factor. but this was still an enjoyable beer.

Patrickctenchi (5855) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle: (17/11/11) Hazy yellow-gold with a large, foamy, white head....long lasting with a lot of lace. Scent is light pear, yeast. Taste is slightly herbal, with pear, banana.... Some tart-on the verge of sour tones, yet still sweet overall....depends on the way you sip it. Not a great one, but pretty good overall.

Bottle. Has a lot of the sweetness that most belgian style beers have, but it is balanced well to cut the sweetness. Fairly nice.

jbruner (3851) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with a frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma of funky belgian yeast, grassy hops, and slight lemony citrus. Taste is a lot of the grassy qualities with hints of the other smells. Pretty good, but not great.

Light hazy pour with lots of foam if you rush it. However it will lace the glass all the way to the last gulp. A yeasty and hoppy offering with hints of citrus and pear. The hoppiness is countered by crisp alcohol flavor. A good Belgian ale for a lighter taste.
