Had this at the brewery about a year and a half ago when Skip accidently filled my jug with it (I asked for AleSmith X). It's a clear yellow fizzy beer with a white head. It taste like a pale ale/koelsch with a lemon like tartness. Interesting, but not my favorite AleSmith brew.

Clear yellow, a slight lemony flavor. It certainly doesn't taste like the belgian it claims to be. More like a Koelsch.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 a pretty light and extremely quaffable ale, a little hoppy again while adding an interesting coriander flavor as well as notes of orange peel. Skip described this as a cross between a hoppy west-coast style ale and a blonde Belgian ale. Interestingly this ale, as well as other AleSmith Belgian ales, is fermented with a yeast from a Trappist monastery.
