Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Nice hazy clear golden cover with a nice foamy white head that doesn’t last. Aroma is nice and sweet with additional notes for orange and banana and maybe a little bit of pepper. Flavor is sweet and kind of clean with a few ester need totes. The finish has a nice alcohol flavor. Mouthfeel is kind of thin carbonation is average. Overall this is a decent beer.

lukin (576) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016
bottle. Cloudy golden colour with fizzy head. Fruity, honey, spices, and of course the unique unibroue yeast flavour. Bubbly. Nice beer.

Rubin77 (1033) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 13, 2016
F: not big, white, quick gone. C: deep gold, hazy. A: malty, yeasty, banana, candy sugar, peach, wheat. T: very malty, pear, candy, yeast, dusty, spicy, wheat, medium body, more than normal carbonation, quite interesting interpretation of BSA, why there is wheat? Good but not the best, 341ml bottle from Eat Brussels 2016 festival.

ChadPoole (284) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head and noticeable carbination. Aroma is yeast, grain and fruits. It has a sweet taste with a medium body. Good beer, but it lacks something I just can’t put my finger on.

Lore (2170) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 18, 2016
extremely hazy golden colour, moderate sized off-white head; aroma of wheat, coriander, fruits like peach, grains, earthy and some floral notes;taste is the same with peppery notes in the aftertaste; good, though I’m not amazed somehow...

rjplumer (1003) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2016
Zesty fruit aroma. Hazy burnt yellow body topped with bright white head. Bold crisp coriander taste. Even with it’s bold character it has clean finish.

Adamsville (213) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
Sans trop vouloir me répéter, je trouve que la levure très typée d’Unibroue s’agence mieux avec leurs bières blondes que celles brunes. Ici, la Don de Dieu ne fait pas exception. Les épices de la levure ainsi que ses fruits (agrumes, poire, peut-être même pomme) vont de pair avec le malt quelque peu sucré, voire mielleux de la bière. Un peu trop effervescente?

portwood (169) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2016
Smell: vanilla, honey, dried fruits, clove. Palate: sweet, malty, well carbonated. Finish: banana bread, fruit cake, baking spices, bubblegum, cotton candy. (bottle)

tightslice (962) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light Belgian spicy-ness, light fruits, wheat-y esters. Taste is lighty ripe peach (without any of the tartness), some hay / wheat. Palate is very memorable...creamy, juicy but not cloying or sticky. Has a "standard" Belgian quality but I really enjoyed this one.

sulawang (1031) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2016
Visual: Pours translucent marmalade orange with a decent sized micro-fine bubbly 1cm head w/ retention, clusters of active streams. Nose: banana wheat malt-honey-chamomile (lvl-5)-pungency Attack: crisp-micro bubbly, Mid-palate: citrus tangy (lvl-5-sweetness), banana wheat malt, pineapple, chamomile-honey, alcohol zingy Finish: wheat malt dry-rough, banana exhale. Summary: Full on banana wheat malt and alcoholic. A bit astringent in the mids and finish but overall solid and enjoyable.
