COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This straw colored beer greets with an aroma of noble hops, pears and Belgian esters. The flavor follows nicely with a moderately spicy hop and Belgian yeast effect buoyed by a soft malt body. The finish is crisp and dry. We enjoy this beer with spicy foods, grilled steaks, grilled chicken and mandarin salad. Where you take it is only limited by your imagination.

Light golden hazy pour with a light white head .... aroma of light floral hops and fruity belgian yeast .... taste is light spicy hops, light citrusy tart hop, sweet malts, belgian fruity yeast (think pear/apple) with just a light light hop kick ... an easy drinking and decent bpa with abv hidden well

Nice clear orange/gold/copper. 1 finger head that didn’t linger for long. Intense bubble-gum aroma to it, along with yeast, green apple/pear, and candied pineapple/papaya. Not much hops. Taste followed smell almost exactly, except for the nice crisp hop bitterness on the finish. Very nice surprise when it smells this candied. A bit too much carbonation, I think. Very prickly on the tongue, which actually distracted from the flavor. Medium syrup mouthfeel, but crisp enough to not be sticky.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2011
A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a sweet caramel malt with butterscotch, a bit cloying. In mouth, a sweet chalky malt with light smoked notes, a bit beany and chalky. Bottle at Belgian Beer Fest, Sept 10, 2011.

Bottle. Crystal clear, golden, and still. Thin but resilient head of white foam. The aroma is honey-laden, sweet, but natural. Same for the drink -- soft in every way. Little bit of malt, little bit of honey, little bit of yeast, little bit of pear. Quite subtle and nice. Where’s my cheese plate!? (#4254, 9/11/2011)

bottle poured a bright golden in color with a nice thick off white head that retained well. aroma is mild with some hops, yeast, and wheat. mouth feel is nice for a pale and there is plenty of carbonation. flavor has a nice belgian yeast that is not overdone for a pale, mild hops, some light bitterness, and some sweetness into the finish. it is a nice pale ale and considering the abv comes across as easy drinking. there must be either a lot of batch variation or problems with other bottles because although this is not stellar stuff it drinks fine.

Draft awhile back at either RnH or Capone’s - cant remember but it was around the time I moved from Philly to nyc. Thank christ i only had a 4-5 ounce sample of this sucker because it was a terrible beer. Lightly hazy yellow body with some lacing. Aroma is pretty offensive, its not that this beer is boring in any way, but it’s actually offensive and disgusting.

It was very floral, I wasn’t that big of a fan. Almost tasted like Bruery’s orchard white but less potent.

Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a hazy milky yellow body with a large white head. Aromas are hoppy and grainy, grassy, and peppery. Spicy. Lively and peppery character. Dry, styrofoam, and fennel. Lively, dry. Not infected.

GatheringBrews (45) - Derby, Vermont, USA - FEB 15, 2011
A: Very light, hazy yellow/straw color. Ample, puffy white head with loads of lacing. S: The Belgian yeast gives it a characteristic nose but also a little too close to that skunky smell of Heineken. T: Mild taste with a tiny bit of hops and just a hint of the fruit and spice you’d anticipate with Belgian yeast. M: Very light and a touch thin with a dry finish. D: A good beer, but not necessarily one I’d seek out; nor would I turn it down.
