Not very good. It smelled sort of like the water that runs down a gutter on garbage day, and did not taste all that much better than I would imagine said water to taste like.

Formerly brewed. With beers like this one it is not shocking. Brownish color pour. Candy, yeasty, malts in the nose. Taste is kind of odd, watered down, and not really anything like a BSA should be. I appreciate the attempt at creating one of the better styles of beer to come out of Belgium, but this one was just boozy and unbalanced.

Draft. Medium gold, light head. Weak yeast influence, some coriander, hints of malts and hops; not watery but not full flavored either. Okay.

rayOfBeer (652) - El Cerrito, California, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle: clear very light, pale yellow pour with a large white head. Aroma is light with champagne, cider, wheat and a soft yeast funk. Flavor is somewhat watery sugary syrup with bubblegum, cider, wheat, yeast and alcohol. The flavor are somewhat jumbled and light with a boozy alcohol bite. Not horrible, just not one I would buy again.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Very light, clear, pale gold with a frothy white head. Very little aroma....yeasty. Mild...a slight nutty tone over the yeast.... A hint of white pepper. Light, but still pretty nice.

coreyc1221 (258) - Truckee, California, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Pear! very pear aroma! Little bright bubbly head at first aaannnnd it’s gone! Golden clear body. Tastes floral fruity and kinda bitter after taste. This Belgian is a bit more champagne like than others. Good summer beer. I would love this at the beach with finger foods. It’s a good beginning beer.

krumbum (410) - truckee, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Smells fruity almost like a cider. Appearance light gold very very clear. Strong punch of flavor hints of plastic. Yeast end. Light on the palate leaves slight trace of after taste. Overall not really overly impressed but don’t hate it.

DavidWoodruff (387) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 4, 2013
Appearance: Hazy yellow with a slight orange tinge and a small white head. Aroma: Candy sugar, light malt and alcohol. Flavor: Sweet malt, candy sugar and orange with a perfume-like aftertaste. Palate: Meduim to full bodied. Overall: Fairly well done, but lacks complexity in both aroma and flavor.
