Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot), with light notes of gum and butter.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Well...it looks pretty good...lasting head and bottle conditioned. But it smells almost nothing like a Belgian beer...diacetyl, fruity hops, caramelly malt...smells like a British bitter, quite frankly. In the mouth, it’s on the sweet side (not much bitterness to speak of), with plenty of that buttery character lingering in the retronasal aroma. Pretty blah. JawVer (39) - - MAY 8, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy copper into a tulip glass. Has an odd unappealing sweetness to it

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear copper with small frothy off white head. The aroma is a bready malt and skunk. Thin mouthfeel with a bitter malt and metallic finish. Not much going on with this one. PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle at the Sharp Edge Brassiere tasting on 4/23/12. A solid Belgian ale, but nothing special. A good everyday drinker for Belgian ale fans. Bready scent kind of like the crust of a pie, clear bronze pour, a nutty fronted taste over the lightly crisp palate, and a bready presence in the middle taste, finishing on a bitter note.

This poured a medium amber color with a white head. Aroma was spices, yeast, some prunes, and candy sugar. Flavor was much the same, the sweetness was kept to a low, but somewhat bland and uninviting.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish, dusty, musty and had some faint dry spices though a bit dirty and off. The flavor was dry, musty, dusty and a bit dirty with faint dry spices, pepper and was almost boozy despite the low alcohol content. The finish was medium length dry dust and dirt. Medium body. Disappointing. pineypower (3350) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2012
Bottle from Canal’s. Pours out a moderate copper color with a well carbonated, small white head. Aroma is of fruity Belgian yeast, spices, and some apple. Taste is apple, doughy bread, spice and some Belgian yeast. Not overly complex, but very easy drinking. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2012
Poured at the Big Texas Beer Festival. Light pour with a small white head. Aroma is fruit, grapes, and a little metal. Taste is not much, vinous, and awkward. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2012
Pours a clear copper color with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma is Belgium yeast with notes of honey. The taste, like the aroma, is Belgian yeast and honey. The mouthfeel is medium with some effervescence present. While enjoyable probably won't buy again.

Pours.a slightly hazy copper with a thin cream colored head. Aroma is banana peel, coriander, and yeast. Taste is very similar. Not bad.
