Hazy yellow with quickly-dissipating big head. Taste matches aroma -- moderately sweet, orange and spicy (coriander +), some yeast and breadiness. Medium body, quite quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy golden colour with a little hint of orange. A very large bubbled white head which fades fast. Small bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass very often, which makes it look like a fine champagne. A definate yeasty smell, with not much else in the nose. A good medium bodied taste with noticable hoppyness. A good all-around beer, with some malt in the aftertaste. Definately worth a taste if you can get your hands on a bottle. Its a cheap beer up in the Northeast, so definately go for the deal!

Expected more from the nose but it wasn't there! Nice head, very carbonated. Spicey/Malty not a lot of anything but many different tastes. Good Drinking!

Wow this beer is definitely true to the Beligian style. It has a nice fruity pallette, hints of bananna and apple perphaps. Very similar taste to Chimay white and Duvel.

First half a glass wasn't too bad, but it got hard to drink after a while. Alcohol bite to it, with a overly carbonated head and not much body. I'm not really a fan of this one.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2003 Aroma is very nice with some citrus fruit coming out. Merky yellow/orange color with moderate head. Flavor is orange, peach, and apricot. Some alcohol is noticeable but not overpowering. Slight spice and alcohol finish. Good beer.

This seems to be true to the style, medium bodied with lots going on in the flavor dept. The spice presence is not my favorite but is not so strong to totally ruin this for me as in some other brews that use clove.

Bronze bodied with foamish head--this was quite a complex, yeasty brew with the tastes developing and unraveling in waves. First, bubble gum is apparent in the aroma and flavor, later banana--then distinct notes of white grapes. A great, earthy beer for the beach.

This did not impress me much at all. Very similar to Duvel for me, and that is not a beer that I rave over.

A nice dark golden color that poured with a 1 finger, bubbly yet almost frothy, head. The aroma is slighly citrus with a touch of floral notes. The flavor is floral and earthy with some corriander and clove. I can taste the alcohol with great spices.
