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!

341ml bottle. Slightly hazy pale yellow with a copper hue, white head that fades to nothing. Lots of wheat , some coriander, belgian yeast, some spice. Somewhat prickly from the alcohol, starts sweet, becomes slightly bitter and dry, fairly smooth, spice and wheat on the finish. Tasty.

VincentL (264) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2011
Une odeur assez florale avec des agrumes. Belle robe jaune brumeuse avec une belle mousse. Non filtré. Un goût un peu ’terreux’ (levure), , un peu de citron, bonne amertume, un peu acide, aucun sucre. Une bière complexe et très satisfaisante.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Spicy coriander aroma. Hazy pale yellow. Flavor is a match, lots of coriander, in the end this comes off sort of as a big spicy witbier. Nice. Not as good as the original, but nice.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle shared by Kinz at the 16th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 11/5/11. Pours an amber yellow color with a thin white head that fades quickly. Spicy aroma with pale bready malts and caramel. The taste is sweet sugary malts, spice, bread, bubblegum and spicy hops. Medium bodied.

Butters (3685) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Hazy blonde pour with no real head. A little alcohol hot on the nose. Banana and clove. A little yeasty. blah.

tia (849) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. Hazy yellow. Smells like coriander. Very sweet like cotton candy or bubble gum. Light.

gilvanblight (761) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2011
Orange colour. Little head that faded fast. Bitter scent. Citrus and a ton of spice (cinamon and ginger). Gingerbread like. Very spicy taste. Not strong tasting. Spice reminds me of a pumpkin ale. Thick. Slight alcohol taste that grows in the finish.

BLAP (73) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2011
Not as good as her cousin La Chouffe but a good interpretation. Cloudy with a lot of lee flakes. Spicy and fruity aromas. Great sweet taste with a little bitterness.
