starcross (60) - Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Cloudy gold pour with quickly dissipating head. Has definite Belgian yeasty aroma. Get a little fruit, some yeast and really notice the spiciness of this one. Dry finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bluejacket74 (1282) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2014
22 ounce bottle, bottled on date of 04/07/14. Served in a Unibroue tulip, the beer pours a hazy golden/amber color with about an inch off-white head that stays around a little while. There’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and fruity, the brew smells like apricots, apples, candy sugar, cloves, wheat/bready malt, and some orange peel. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some pears, bananas, and sweet and peppery spiciness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it has a good amount of carbonation and it’s easy enough to drink. It’s been quite a few years since the last time I tried this brew, and it’s still as good as I remember it being. $11.99 a bomber.

Pours clear amber orange amber with a whitish head. Aroma is light lemony sweet yeast. Flavor is light bitterness, a bit of lemon curd and not much lingering. It is a few years old.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2014
[Bottle] Cloudy yellow color is accented by a billowing foamy head. Nose is of malts, straw and barnyard funk. Cleaner floral flavors are strong. Little funk in the taste. Chamomile, coriander and lemongrass are all featured in the taste as well. Sweet and malty finish. Tastes much better than it smells.
