Bottle pour. Golden. A lot of lemon aroma with a little spice. A citrus bite with a mellowing, slightly bitter finish. A lot of flavor and spice. Really good.

McNeillR (1098) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Still cloudy golden, bubbly ringed head. Eggy lemon, oily nose. Nice peppery scuttle of more lemon, tinny hop and thin almost witbeir creaminess. Impressive masking of the ABV, tang citrus on the finish and soft carbonation.

A nice American take on a Belgian ale. Medium hop level which blends well with the dry Belgian flavors and adds a new dimension. Strong yet refreshing. Brewers should try this more often.

From a bottle. A nice golden pour. Bottle was over carbonated. Good Belgian flavor, but a bitter and lingering aftertaste. A good but not great beer.

Marheb (1967) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2014
Des arômes de jus de fruits clair, ananas, poire, pomme et au goût j’ai vraiment une impression de brett brux trois....Est-ce que c’était la bonne version indiqué sur le tableau? Mes souvenirs de la version régulière était plus levuré et moins svelte en bouche. Je saurai probablement jamais, quand même solide broue.

Visual: In a quality, thick, hefty bottle. Pours slightly translucent bright golden orange, with a massive lasting ultra-creamy head, sticky lacing, tons and tons of fast activity. Beautiful Visually. Nose: Enticing fruity peach-apple. (lvl-6)-pungency Attack: half creamy/fizzy, incoming dense malts Mid-palate: light tangy, continual tingly/fizzy texture, (lvl-6)-fruity sweetness, (MAIN) malts, honey, apricot, alcohol detection+bitterness Finish: cuts off-dry, light-medium hopped bitterness + dense fruity malt finish. Summary: Clean fruity flavours with excellent textural mouthfeel from start to finish. Recommended, especially chilled.

swesson (183) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2014
On tap at Parry's. Pours a cloudy golden white with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Smells of orange. Tastes like a belgian white ale with a citrus bite. Good lacing on my brandy glass. Well balanced and perfect level of carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
