3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Out of a Chimay glass as the wife broke the Duvel glass last night (oh the humanity). Light golden color with a tall rocky white head with heavy lace. Very light nose. A little malt, a little lemon and a touch of spice. Light oily, yet spritzy feel. A very low key type of brew. Light pale malt mingles with a hint of cloves, light white wine, key lime, mango and a few other little subtleties. Actually the way this is put together they all are little subtleties. Nothing to bold or brash, just well made, balance and light.

Golden hazy color with a nice white head. Aroma is both yeasty and fruity (citrus). Surprisingly light body with a nice balance between acid and sweetness. As most belgians this beer lingers on forever! I like it for its lightness and the nice aroma

nice blond color, malt aroma's and sweet taste. No bitterness at all. Not my kind of beer. No own character, just to please a to sweet taste of young consumers, and ladies?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color, huge off-white rocky head, tiny particles floating around. Aroma is sweet, citrus, some hops, bit sour flowery hint and some yeast. Taste is sweet spicy, some citrus, crispy sourness at the side of the tongue, strange. Bit watery palate. Quite nice blonde beer.

Medium gold, decent head. Ashy aroma. Flavor remarkably similar to La Leffe, but much more restrained, with only a hair of yeast showing through. Not bad, but not great either.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. big 'ole brown Belgian bottle. Corked and caged. Best before date on cork of 09/04. Loud pop shoots the cork out into my hand. Very carbonated and lively beer here. Poured out an extremely pale golden color. Lighter in color then even Budweiser, which I find hard to believe. Thick, meringue like white head went the distance with my glass. Very tiny bubbles make up the bulk of the entertainment in the glass. Champagne like in every respect. Aromas are of fresh cut hay, sweet Timothy, yeasty bread, and slight clove-ishness to it as well. Peppery taste, lively mouthfeel, but a tad thin on the body. Hops are basically non-existent, both in aromas and flavors. Finished peppery, and tangy from the carbonation.

Bottle Conditioned. BBE 04/05 Pale cloudy yellow with soft head. Mild spicy nose. Soft with subtle spice flavour. Pleasant, but doesn't rock my boat.

Golden color with a white head. The taste is watery and yeasty. I find it kind of boring.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Bottle: Very carbonated... opened the bottle and let it sit for 5 minutes only to find that after a few minutes it was all over the table. Bottle pours a hazy yellow color with yeast visible floating througout. Head is a frothy white. Aroma is of the usual belgian yeast. Mouthfeel is very lively. Initially its a bit sour, but it quickly vanishes at the finish leaving a slight artificial sweetner straw taste. Nothing spectacular, but still enjoyable.

Tall white head on a clear pale yellow body. Nose of fruit, hay and yeast. Mild flavor of citrus, hops, hay and something undefined... Bitter and sour aftertaste.
