Growler courtesy of BDR. Pours gold with a lasting white head. Smells of pilsner malt, spicy, some close, candie sugar, floral. Tastes of pepper, spice, citrus, dry malt, some bitterness on the finish. bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is malty and yeasty with some spices. Strong flavor with heavy malt and yeast presence yet also sweet with banana notes and more spices with alcohol coming through as well. Medium bodied; medium carbonation. Toward the end, alcohol presence becomes more prominent. Not bad. BVery (11241) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap. Mostly clear bright gold pour with thin clingy white head. Smells like a tripel. Taste is very malty, with yeast and spice tones. Decent.

Draught at the brewpub. A bright gold beer. No head and little carbonation. Mild aroma with light spice and yeast. Flavor is just a little sweet, some coriander, and sweet malt with yeast. A little thin on the palate. cykyc (28) - USA - MAR 10, 2008
@ Barley John’s, on draught:
I don’t know if I got a bottom of the barrel run, but the aroma was almost non-existence and the palate almost tasted flat. The flavor is similar to the other reviews. Distinctive Belgian candi taste and a hit of ethanol on the tail end. Sweet trickle aftertaste. A pleasant drink, but maybe not the right barrel.

Winterfest 2008. Gold color with yeasty aroma and plenty of spice. A little banana in the body that was otherwise sominated by an excellent yeast profile.
