3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very hoppy and somewhat none traditional for what I was expecting in a Belgian ale, so maybe its not really belgian after all. tis brew is very hoppy and tasty, it gives a good uplift of hops from the begining and then lets barley malts finish it off nicely. scrumpious

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear light amber color with small head. Aroma of light citrus and hops. Taste is more of the same, very light in body and taste. Not much in the hoppiness department and at 4% I guess this is supposed to be a girl beer. Not for me.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It has a strong citrus smell and light fresh taste, much like you would expect from a spring style ale. An average golden look and aroma. That said I liked it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden with a spicey citrus smell. Tastes like a spring. A refreshing taste, but not good enough where I would want to drink more than a few. Hoppy with a slight taste of lime.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dishevelled grapefruit zest plagued by prevalent oxidation...Lethargic caramel seeping through the bubble filter...This one was had well before the Sept. 14th, 2004 expiration date, its bottle is brown, so there is no excuse in my book other than prior-to-bottling problems...

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very light amber, clear, almost no head. Aroma presents light hops tending toward grapefruit or minty flavors, plain powder sugar, light cream... Not too interesting. In mouth, big oxidation is revealed although it’s not expired. Mild vegetable hints (celery), poor flavor development, watery thin body.. Disappointing.

At first taste you notice the grains, then the subtle lime flavor. I didn’t notice any outstanding aroma. Tasted much better out of the refrigerator, opened for about 30 minutes.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a white, two-fingered pillowy head, fades soon and leaves a good lace. Medium carbonation. Clear golden amber color. Nose is hoppy, starts and finishes hoppy, the lime leaf is not noticeable; hopheads line up for this one. $1.80 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
thin light color, frothy white head, lightly carbonated, barley malt aroma, crisp and consice flavor, refreshingly simple, light in the mouth, lofty even, I usually stay away from stuff this light, but I would buy this again, good summer session brew.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Needs to warm a bit to taste the suble flavors.
Initially a bit of wheat and corn mixed in the citrusy hops. Somewhat tart yet reasonably soft. The finish is a bit sweet with a small bit of lime flavor.
Not a new favorite.
