millysdaddy (67) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 4, 2007
750 ml bottle. Poured golden-orange in color with a substantial, off-white head. The head slowly went down while drinking but lasted for the whole glass. Lots of lacing as well. Yeasty aroma with a bit of hops and some honeysuckle. Starts bitter but spice and light fruit flavors are present. Finishes dry with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

chimaylover (4) - California, USA - DEC 30, 2006 does not count
perfume nose upon first open. Seltzer feel on the tongue; crisp and clean. Definetly has that "belgian ale" taste. Tones down to a citrus smooth, slightly hoppy after taste.

marcus (8903) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 28, 2006
This pale golden ale poured with great clarity and a resultant fluffy off-white head. This is a well-bittered (hopped) tripel-style ale that is heavily carbonated. It is full-bodied with a sweet aroma, but more bitter taste.

Dark yellow colored, big white head. Cloudy appearance. Spices, orange, yeast in sweet and rich aroma. Medium to full bodied. Flavor is richer with nice fruity and yeasty touch, good crispy spices and mild alcohol also there. Some licorice and spiciness in aftertaste. Nice lace in glass.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Bottle. First off, I think the cork dented my ceiling and I have a pain in my neck from jumping so quickly to get out of the way. Strangely enough, no beer came out of the bottle. Clear copper color with a billowy ivory head. Very Belgian-like yeast aroma with a solid hoppiness. Taste is bananas and oranges with malt and lemongrass. Warming with a slight burnt cinnamon note. Very dry.

POD (198) - USA - DEC 19, 2006
This was a pleasant suprise. Poured this from bottle and saw the entire glass fill with foam. Huge white bubbly head. Once I finished the beer, I had foam residue still foating in the cup. This head wouldn’t go away! Aroma was of slight floral hops and malt. Flavor was of drysweet hops and had a crisp slight aftertaste of malt. I drank this ice cold with habanero chicken wings. They meshed very well. I would drink this again.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2006
This was a good Belgian. Very hoppy and dry, which I like. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick white head, the flavor was nice and balanced. Recommended.
