(Bottle) Purchased at the BC Liquor Store in Fairfield (Victoria) for $2.75. Pours a thin, white head with a golden body. Nose of sweet malt with a fruitiness. Crisp flavour with a floral hops tongue and a slight bitter finish. A good beer to sit in the sun and drink.

brewgirlca (57) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2006
Pours a strking medium amber. Spicy nose backed by sweet malts. Intensely fruity. Sweet maltiness carries through into flavour and palate giving a good balance with the bouqet. Low bitterness, could have used a bit more but not at all unpleasent. Could have used a bit more of that definitve Belgian clovy yeastiness for complexity. But still wonderfully drinkable as the session beer it was meant to be.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Pours dark golden with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of light honey, very mild, some graininess. Taste is hoppy and fresh, quite nice. Also slighty grainy with a neutralizing papery taste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly resinous quality.

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle. Nice amber body with average carbonation and a good off-white bubbly/frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with woody and grassy notes. Taste lacks complexity but is well balanced. Ends with a good bitter finish. Average "everyday ale".

Tastes really bad on tap at the pub near work, yet everyone drinks it. A bit better from the bottle. There are better options.
