3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 Bottle. Poured a cloudy golden amber with a very small white head that was fully diminishing and had no lacing to speak of. The aroma was of sweet straw-like malts, floral hops, and earthy yeast with notes on fruit. It tasted sweet and slightly bitter in the beginning and matured into a sweet-sour flavor with hints of dried fruits, that stayed with you for a nice while. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry in texture. Overall a nice refreshing Belgian Ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, 35.5cl) Slightly hazy, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Yeasty, delicately sugary malty aroma with spicy and subtle fruity notes. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation. Slightly biscuity and sugary malty base with yeasty spice, delicately fruity notes and a whiff of caramel; sweet malty and moderately bitter, spicy and slightly alcoholic finish. Not a must. 04.V.15

PranQster? I only just met her! Sorry. Unlike that joke, a pale Belgian-style ale never gets old. This gold-colored beer looks lovely in a tulip glass with its effervescent body and fluffy head. Aroma gives off yeast esters that are fruity, earthy, bread-like, and a bit spicy. The flavor is a balanced mix of banana, crisp clove, and rich malt. Does it taste like something that comes from Belgium? Sure. Is it one of the best Belgian-style brews to be made stateside. I think so, yes. Was the 4-pack a good idea? Definitely. Why the hell am I asking so many rhetorical questions? This has to be better than the -er jokes, right? Damn, that’s another rhetorical question.

Bottle in the Marketplace Ale House, Doncaster. Pours golden with a thin white head. Fruity peach aroma. The taste is lightly spicy booze with a little peach. Caramel, tea and orange peel too. OK.

Draft. It pours a hazy pale yellow/orange color with a white head. The aroma is lightly spicy with some ginger, coriander and orange. The flavor is a bit sweeter with banana, ginger, coriander orange and tangerine. A little peppery spice in the finish, which is a bit on the sweet side. Not bad.

A really really nice golden ale. Best after warming a bit in the glass and opening up a bit. Very smooth, nice citrus notes.
