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.

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.

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.

PorterPounder (6529) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
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.

Aurelius (4773) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2004
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.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
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.

guzzler67 (1597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2004
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.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2004
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

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2004
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.
