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

Perhaps my favorite brew from the Ommegang crew. I’ve had on many occasions and it never disappoints. Pours a gold color with a nice white head. Smells of spice and citrus. Mild carbonation and a crisp, sweet taste.

Aroma of yeast and citrus, perhaps some grass. A little lemon? Slightly translucent light gold color with a white real ale head that is ferocious (and laces). Starts with lemony citrus, yeast, banana?, and cardamom? Decent frothy mouthfeel. The finish is a bit herbal with spice and light hop bitter. Seems very well balanced. Quite tasty.

Bottle @ Yespr tasting.
[thank you, Yespr]
Pours a lightly hazy pale yellow. Nice stream of small bubbles reach from the centre of my glass towards an incredibly great frothy white head that leaves great blothy lacings on my glass. Aroma is lightly sweet, malty and subdued, but present herbs. Mouthfeel is crisp and light, but never thin. Flavour is initially a bit sweet, bút the herbal and spicy notes hit me well into the aftertaste. Super drinkability, only flaw may be a bit too much sweetness.
