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.

Nice yeasty, light Belgiann ale. Golden pale color with a diminishing but lasting head. Good taste, soft malts with a nice edge. Longder finish than you'd expect for such a moderately flavored beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very cloudy golden color with generous SLIGHTLY off white head. Aroma is nice, and not overpowering. Flavor is really quite nice as well. Good balance and depth...slightly spicy. A nice saison.
