UPDATED: SEP 7, 2012 Pours hazy gold with a medium white head. Spicy aroma - coriander, cinnamon, ginger - kind of exotic. The taste is also a bit spiced up front, with a good deal of both malt and hops, and a very nice finish. medium-full bodied and satisfying.

[bottle at DwEEBs meeting] Spicy, phenolic aroma with some banana, peach, and sweet malt. Cloudy dark yellow under a white wisps and a ring. Peppery phenolic flavour that has plenty of banana esters and slightly off-balancing sweetness for the moderate bitterness. Not overly spicy. Medium body, medium carbonation, clean finish.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2012
APPEARANCE: Pours a hazzy amber with a small white none lasting head. AROMA: This a yeast forward beer. The fragrance is very fruity. Sweetish, but not overly so. There is also a note dough present. TASTE: The taste is rather floral combined with hints of bread. The finish is dry.MOUTHFEEL: Light bodied and medium carbonation. OVERALL: An Eexcellant beer. A nice balance of subtle sweetness and dryness. Reminiscent, to me of a Saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Atheist_Peace (977) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
Cloudy yellow/amber pour with lots of nearly white head. Has an almost hefeweizen sort of nose with a little added fruit. The palate is pure here for the most. No bad, but more than a little off style.

Tricker (292) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
Bière blonde forte de 8 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat sucré. Elle est orange-rouge au versement, comme parfois une bière blanche. Elle possède un col mousseux et un goût d’épice du type girofle, thym et/ou coriandre. Elle est bonne en bouche, fortement gazeuse, et possède un petit goût herbal. Correcte !!!

Bouteille 341ml. Arôme d’agrumes. Goût d’agrumes principalement d’orange, de coriandre. Une bonne bière de style belge.

cmc619 (433) - California, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Classic Belgian, through and through. Love the label art on this series. Pours a light orange with a soft haziness. Flavor has strong malt presence. Has some really interesting spices that emerge as you roll it over your palate. Arguably zesty. Alcohol shows itself a bit, but not much for the strength. Pretty soft overall. This is a great one.

Minderbinder (2028) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle 341ml. Pours hazy blond, with low white head, fully diminishing. Aroma is of belgian yeast, spices, and sligth citrus. Taste is of spices, belgian yeast. Some sligth bitterness in the very end. Sweet beer. The body is kind of thin. I would say watery, if the beer was not that tasty. Alchool is well hidden, though it is warming. A good, simple, belgian beer.

HeistAlmighty (1155) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 24, 2012
341ml bottle. Smell is overwhelming coriander, can’t say I’m a fan. Light citrus, yeast and floral sweetness behind that. Poured a cloudy yellow with a moderate foam head that died instantly. Lively carbonation. Taste is again dominated by the coriander, with some lemon, honey sweetness and some floral hops. Body was refreshing. In a word: Coriander. If you like that, then this is for you. Otherwise, not recommended.

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 22, 2012
pours hazy pale yellow with a small white head, little retention. aroma just reminds me of my introduction to "other" beers. tons of coriander, sweet dusty grassy malts. taste is semi-sweet malts with lemon, honey, light vanilla, and spices. light to medium hopping - grassy and citrusy. soft carbonation, medium body. nice herbal-citrusy finish. nicely done, and cheap!
