Copper color, small head and medium flow of bubbles. Honey infuzed aroma mixed with cherry, ending in a bready wheat. Medium mouthfeel leaning towards the heavy side for this style but definitely refreshing. A buttery flavor that favors the lightly toasted malt. Just enought hops to balance. A satisfying change from the world of overly bitters and watery pales. JohnnyZ (90) - Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Great tasting beer. Does not remind me of a Belgian. Reminds me of an APA. It is a good idea to drink this beer. It is satisfying. coldmeat23 (232) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 11, 2009
Nice clear golden brown color. Two finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing.
Spicy citrus notes are all but overpowered by bubblegum scents. A tiny bit of malt pokes through.
A small bit of spice notes right up front give way to the bubblegum/citrus flavor combo and are then followed by a light hoppy bite at the end.
Nice and creamy with a great carbonation level.
Could be a good session beer. I would have a problem with the hoppy bite it has, but could probably get around it, as it is minimal.

This beer deserves a much higher rating than it currently has. 12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Still very fresh though. Poured out a hazy orangish copper color, with a thick, sticky tan colored head. Aromas are of a classic Belgian pale ale. Fruity, dense, aromatic. Mouthfeel is thick & rich. Flavors are of fruity bubblegum, slight hops bite mix well with the malts. A more than decent take on the Belgian style. Buddahchild (28) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Truly good beer for good people. Amber with a light head. Sweet bread and caramel on the nose. Medium bodied candied malt flavor with caramel and lightly hopped for balance. I love this with a three cheese tomato pizza.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a medium sized soapy yellow-white head that faded quickly. The aroma was sweet, sugary,musty, yeasty and lightly fruity - quite complex. The flavor was dryish, must and had a nice citrus undercurrent with a lightly tart finish. Very nice. williamherbert (1544) - Syracuse, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2009
The look is cloudy and hazy, but also bright. Lava lamp orange with tons of carbonation. Big head is puffy dishsoap; unstable. Leaves a film and a minor lacing.
Very nice dry malt smell. Biscuty with a cookie sweetness. Sweetness is like a pastry, not fruit. Quite nice. Fruit comes out as it warms.
Nice slightly pale flavor. Very mild and dry. A mild tartness, hints of lemon and grape. Some honey and just a smidge of spice. Really layered and balanced.
Feels creamy and thick. Slightly bubbly, but smooth overall. It’s highly drinkable, mild and dry. A nice sweet ale. Honey and red grape are the signature flavors. fitwitchik (433) - Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass glass golden with a white head that dissipated really quick.
Aroma is subtle fruit- pears faint scent of Belgium yeast.
Flavor is sweet pears some bitterness definite slight funk. Reminds of a sweet/sour candy. Quite refreshing.
Not overly carbonated medium body to the palate. Smooth.
Trying to figure out why this brew has gotten a bad rap here in ratings. It’s definitely not an imported Belgium pale but its holds it weight well. Glad I snagged the last 6 pack at my usual ale takeout store.
Will definitely look forward to this brew next year.
