Transparent, pale yellow in color. Frothy, creamy head and nice dissipating lace. Smells like a lager - yeasty with crisp lemons. Sticky and starchy on the palate. Astringent yet crisp. Lemon acidity. Very yeasty backdrop, which distinguishes it from others in the genre. Lemon shortbread aftertaste.

Poured from the tap, this pale yellow sparkling beer had a medium sized foamy head that lasted a few minutes leaving some lacing on the glass. The aroma was light, crisp, and clean with notes of citrus and some of the characteristic skunkiness. The flavor was not particularly complex but easy to consume. There were notes of citrus in a slightly sweet malt base.

Not so bad for a lager...there is some malt sweetness to this which gives it a rounder taste and less skunky than others...a solid thirst quencher.

GuidoMerkens (5) - USA - APR 29, 2005 does not count
Straightforward. A little skunky on the nose, but a good solid flavor and light finish. Not great nuance, but enjoyable all around.

Not your typical Belgian brew, but very good none-the-less. A good go-to beer (if you can afford it).

shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
Faintly hoppy with some citrus notes, not too skunky, tastes fairly fresh. I imagine it would be better on tap, like you see in those cool commercials. Better than your typical American lagers, but it’s really nothing that special.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Aroma is a mix between rising yeast dough and a skunk. Maybe not as bad. Doesn’t look too bad in the glass although the head dissappeared before i got my lips on it. My biggest knock is the flavor. I’m not sure what it is but I certainly know what it’s not....very good. Somewhat light, tingely, on the palate but I’d rather drink champaign or have a Duval. Overall, it’s overpriced and I’m having buyers remorse. I’ve rethought this beer after chilling it down a bit. Still not great, but somewhat refreshing when very cold.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Tap at Saharra’s Cafe in Jacksonville. The club was exquisitely bizarre. The beer was excruciatingly mundane. I was talked into this one by a cute waitress. Not much better than a Budweiser. I wondered if maybe they had poured me a Bud by mistake. Not even in the same league with the Bass Ale I had there. Even a Newcastle would have been better... 11-12-2005 .... rerate from a 33cl bottle. Clear pale golden, no head. Light skunk aroma. Typical euro-lager flavor. Boring.

33ml btl. I really like this beer, even though it’s light. nice aroma with a bit of citrus, hops, and hay. nice small bubbles with a billowing, lasting head. slight lacing. this beer looks a lot better than a crap macro, despite it’s lightness, and it smooth and pleasant going down with a bit of bitterness, and some dry citrus . i think this beer should be rated a bit better.

BeerandBlues2 (11964) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 18, 2005
Pours pale yellow with a small white head and some spotty lacing. Sour malt aroma with a faint hop nose. Pale buttery malt flavor. Smooth and light creamy palate.
