aroma and flavor are dominated by funky yeastieness. no hop presence at all, subdued malt background. this beer is all yeast. joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2008
bottle into tulip glass. pours cloudy candy orange with a fluffy two-finger off-white head. big nose of pear nectar, melon, strawberry, orange/tangerine, ripe mango, nectarine, bubblegum. flavor is very fruity, citrusy, bubblegummy, light spice. aftertaste is heavy on the ripe strawberry but kinda short. very carbonated and bubbly for a belgian style beer. low abv makes it a decent session beer for people who aren’t used to real belgians. easy to enjoy, hard to be offended by it. starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 28, 2006
Clear amber, little yellowed head. Doughy sweet smell, the flavour holds no surprises. Sourdough straight. Feels like water, yet has that unpleasant alcohol taste. PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2007
Pours a clear copper, thick creamy head. Taste is light & crisp. Fruit, pears & grapes, like wine maybe. Some pepper toward the finish. Mild hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Different. demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Pours a nice deep golden color with a nice white head. The nose is nice and fruity. Peaches and bananas with a nice malty undertone. Palate is very light with a definite banana on the front. Finishes crisp. A great quaffer. Not comparable to a true belgian but good in its own right.

poured into a tulip. Pours a nice dark orange color with a small head that disappears rather fast fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2006
nice aromas of orange peels, citrus and some hops. Lacking some depth though
medium bodied with a nice feel. Still lacking depth with some orange peels and hops
a decent beer. Lacking on both the aromas and flavor, but very drinkable with some decent hops along with it
Poured a dark amber with a clear body that leaves a tan head. The nose is caramel, roasted nuts, cooked sugar, hops, and wheat fresh grass. The taste starts tart with a wheat twang that is followed by a heavy malty caramel background that evolves to a slightly toasted nutty feel on the palate and finishes again tart, it also has a little hop bitterness for balance but just enough, and ends a little boozey within that malty background. Quality brew from Avery! bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Poured on tap, this was pale straw colored with a nose of banana and flavors of grocery store white bread. Nothing special here, which makes it a disappointment by Avery’s lofty standards. OldRaspy (292) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Poured from a 12oz bottle amber in color with a decent beige head that disapated quickly. Aroma was malty with some piney hops. Flavor was sweet malts with a slight hop bite in the finish.
