Poured from a bottle. Pours yellow with a slight tint of orange. Its light head dissolves rapidly. Sweet aroma, light taste that lacks a body.

PorterPounder (5360) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Augusta, Ga - Toast Wine & Beverage - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, tight snow white head that sticks around a while. Pleasant, sweet aroma with some light bubble gum, a hint of yeast, some cotton candy. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some Belgian Candi sugar notes, some yeasty notes, a touch of bubble gum. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of spritz.. Pretty solid.

Bottle. Lightly hazy blonde, estery yeasty aroma, a little sweaty. Rustic yeast guides the palate, sweet pale grains, a little marzipan. Not bad.

Great aroma, fruity and yeasty. A bit overpowering in its sweetness but tart like a grapefruit ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a nice foamy white head. Aromas of clove, Belgian yeast, metallic, banana, and malt sweetness. Tastes of banana, yeast, sweet malts, a little clove and maybe a hint of pear. This was alright and has some nice flavors but seemed to be lacking something. Maybe not enough body for the abv.

hfmejias (671) - Dover, Delaware, USA - APR 12, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear golden, thin white head lots of bubble and very decent lacing. Aroma is mostly fruity, some yeast and some clove. Taste is also fruity some spices, malty notes; but it is a bit weak definitely is the Belgian style but tamed. It is drinkable and with a crisp finish, refreshing.

I liked this because I’m not a big fan of the Belgian beers. It’s palate was weak but still had the underlying Belgian character. Easy to drink and a nice mild flavor. If you like strong Belgian ales skip this one.

Clear and bubbly like champagne. Taste resembles a slightly bitter wine. Tastes almost like a a cider.
