One of my favorites. Great head of white, fluffy softness. Aroma of yeast and bannanas. Flavor is a combination of the same with a medium body. Appeared to have more than the average carbonation while in the glass, yet this was not reflected in the drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has that typical Belgian fruity ester along with some hay-like earthy notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden color, nice white head. Flavor is malty up front, with some fruitiness coming through in the middle, then it finishes kind of thin with a light hop flavor and moderate tartness. Medium-light in body, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Quite nice. A very drinkable Belgian session ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Giant white head atop a hazy yellow body. Aroma is mild sweet, yeasty, barnyard, sour. Taste is yeasty, lemon, herbal, sour. Somewhat watery, light-medium body with some crispness. I associate the much of the smell and taste I note in this beer with a lambic -- in some ways it feels like a cross between a lambic and a lager. I have no idea what the goal is, but I like what has been achieved. Very drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Initial aroma of smelly feet, mellows out quite nicely to a medicinal earthy aroma. Murky, dark golden pour with a decent head and thin lacing. Flavor has elements of citrus, St. Joseph's aspirin and lemon kool-aid - not flavors typically associated with a beer. Very tangy - reminds me of an alco-pop. Mouthfeel - decent. - Overall - I would not fly to Begium for htis one.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I felt like I had to fight this beer all the way. It has a sort of stinky, rotten fruit, artificial banana and narcissus aroma that I couldn't quite get past. Tart, citric candy flavor was very one-dimensional. Tangy, thin finish. Bleh.

2.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Beer pours (in Chimay glass) a light, cloudy yellow-orange liquid with a small white head that dissipates quickly but leaves a thin, lasting film. Aroma is of sweet citrus. Flavor is a sweet, and bitter citrus with a medium amount of hops which I find unpleasant. Sampled at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hazy, golden appearance with a small head. Yeasty aroma with overtones of citrus fruit. Well-carbonated, tart, sour flavor. Dry, spicy, somewhat bitter finish. Elegantly inexpensive.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity malt aroma, typical of many of the Belgian Abbeys, cloudy orange amber color, fruit malty taste which quickly goes dry. A little lighter than other Belgian ales. A hot summer's day Belgian refresher

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Generous white creamy head, mostly lasting, above a clear light gold body. Aroma had a lot going on and was fairly strong: soapy band-aid, lemon, fresh bread / dough, and some brandy sweetness. Flavor is predominently a sour lemon type of thing with some sweetness to take away the harshness. Slightly watery palate and didn't like the sourness of it.
