3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant aroma of pasionfruit, delicate hops, and sweet malt. Appears a clear ambe color with a small creamy head that mostly dissipates. Flavor is grainy, with some caramel notes, and a not insignificant hoppy bitterness. Palate is medium-light and somewhat slick with good effervescence. Overall, a very tasty and pleasant brew, but much more pale ale than belgian. In fact, I don’t get much belgian character at all. Still, I do like the brew.
From Jun 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle a reddish-gold with a small head of foam that dissipated quickly leaving a small ring around the edge of the glass.
The smell has sour and pungent notes to it, which Inot finding very attractive.
The taste has some sour notes up front with some malt flavour, barely, but wow.... I'm finding this one very hard to drink. It just doesn't hit my palate in a positive way.
Bottom line: There's plenty of flavourful Avery beers out there but, this is not one of them. I don't recommend it. shrubber85 (11570) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle. Yeast, apricot/grape, caramel malt, and grass aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet lightly funky apricot, caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Full bodied. Good. Urbanhermit (21) - Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2015

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a pretty basic fruit and malt aroma, not bad
Appearance- A nice amber color with a small off-white head.
Taste- Okay flavor, not overpowering a basic Belgian Pale Ale
Palate- This is a light bodied beer with mild carbonation. it has a nice dry finish and it is fairly sweet tasting. A solid beer that I wouldn’t turn down.

Bottle 12 fl.oz. Clear medium amber color, small frothy off-white head, recedes quickly, minor lacing; fresh fruity aroma, light sourish, berries, peach, marmalade, citrus, floral hops; taste mild light sweet and bitter; light to medium body, oily to light sticky texture, light carbonation, finish mild bittersweet, light sourish, citrus notes; overall a refreshing and mild beer, a kind of cross-over of a pale ale and a fruit beer.

Pours a clear amber color with off-white head. Slight citrus hop notes on the nose, malt, and a little yeasty bread note; follows onto the palate. Pretty solid. mike5326 (1780) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2014

Cloudy orange pour from 12oz bottle at home pretty bland. Fruity tropical berry hoppy goodness. loco_gallego (217) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Ambrée orangée, limpide. Peu de mousse disparaissant rapidement.
Arômatique fruitée, levure belge. Type bière de garde.
En bouche pareil fruitée, on ressent une certaine acidité avec l’alcool envahissant en fin de bouche, peu agréable. Carbonation moyenne.
Bière déconcertante, étonnante si c’est vraiment une belgian ale.
