3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with a frothy white head that stays forever. Fresh malty aroma with hints of dried fruit and yeast. Quite plain sweet malty flavor with spices, fruit and a touch of sourness. Bitter vinous finish. Lightbodied and well carbonated.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2009 Bottled 33cl. It pours a deep golden beer with a decent head. The nose is of glue, brown sugar and hops. Poor taste. High bitterness. Dry finish. Additional comment: A rather nice belgian ale. Enjoyed it a lot more the second time. Still staying with the initial rating though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted 30/10/2008, 330ml bottle from Regionals. Hazy orange gold, white head. Richer bready malt than I get from most blonds, balanced nicely with a decent little combination of clove and spicy orange-like hop. nice pithy bitterness in the finish. Decent beer that’s a good step above the average blond on the streets of Wellington (I’m thinking Leffe and La Trappe rather than the ladies).

Bottle 0,33l. Golden colored. A bit hazy. An OK fluffy head lasting a few minutes. Pleasant aroma of yeast and some spice. Well rounded flavor of spice with sweet hints. Malty and fruity aftertaste - lasting for a while. Dry bitter finish. KI=2.

The label has a new design, but in my opinion the old design was better... The beer has a hazy amber appearance with a nice head. Aroma of sweet and fruity citruses, a hint of buttery-creamy perfumes. Smooth mouthfeel with a spicy sweet taste, some hop. Nice but i’ve waited more about that beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
<i>Bottle.</i> Pours a hazy, light amber with a big, but diminishing, off-white head. Some lacing. Sweetish aroma with a citrusy sourness. Yeast. Sweet flavour and a nice blend of candy, yeast and citrus. Alcoholic finish (in a nice way) with lots of yeast, and some lingering grassy notes. A bit too much carbonation. A decent beer. <i>24-09-08.</i>

Hefe-weiss-like aroma is a mix of banana and fresh hops. Light and clear color and long lastin white head. Fruity flavor is little buttery and quite special. Spicy and bitter aftertaste.
