Aroma green bananas. White pepper. Tastes nutty grassy super authentic. Head and shoulders above the usual american Belgian fare. Ultra dry palate is spot on. beastiefan2k (4033) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2015
375mL capped bottle shared by Pruf. Slightly cloudy dull golden color. Small but tight head. Non estery, slightly lemon rind yeastiness, plenty of dough from the yeast. Gummy doughy too. Light effervescence. Flavor is thick, not sweet but a bright dough, light lemon rind fruit finish. Slightly stingy mouthfeel helps break through all the dough. Light hop bite at the very end. This is what an American Belgian should taste like. BuckeyeBoy (8204) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2017

From bottle. Clear light golden color with plenty of bubbles. Aroma is light yeast, floral hops, light pitted fruit notes. Taste is plum, honey, floral hops, and lightly tart yeast. Finishes with a hint of white wine grapes and light bitterness. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - JAN 20, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2015 375 ml bottle brought to me by a friend. ABV listed as 8.0% on this particular bottle. Pours cloudy golden-orange with small, fine-bubbled white head. Aroma brings orange zest and pepper on first approach. In the mouth aromas of bubble gum (but well-integrated instead of being over-the-top), mineral, and fruit come in as well. Taste is moderately sweet with a short, pleasant, moderately bitter finish. Palate: soft and gentle; medium- body, average carbonation. Overall: I like this better than most locally produced Belgian ales. Would drink again.

Tap at the brewery. Really excited to see this one come back around!
A: Cloudy straw with a thin white head. Lacing.
N: Straw, esters, peppercorn, coriander, funk, lemon zest, grapefruit, cracker, hazy, and green apple.
T: Very bitter and funky. Lightly sweet.
M: Light body, no alcohol, very dry, spritzy carbonation.
O: This is really nice still. I feel like it corresponds well to Orval; would really like to get this in bottles to do a comparison. neepsntatties (2019) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Justin at Beaumont Market. Colour...light golden straw with a frothy white head. Nose...lightly fruity and estery with some spices. Palate...delicately frothy with a delightful blend of yeasty fruity notes, candi sugar and sweet spices. This is quite dandy and if it truly becomes a year round offering, that will be good thing!

Bottle courtesy of BrainLair. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with thin white head. Yeasty, bready aroma with notes of apple cider. Very dry and fruity. Citrus and grapefruit. Hoppy, bitter finish. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2013
375, capped. Thanks j! Pours a cloudy medium gold with bright edges. Huge forward nose--floral, lightly tart (lemony), some white pepper, maybe some pink peppercorn. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Candied lemon, pink peppercorn, floral notes on the mid palate. Crisp refreshing finish. drfabulous (8269) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 31, 2013
375 ml bottle thanks to Garry. Orange like pour. Light perfume and fruit. Light body. Not a heavy yeasty presence. Maybe some plum or grape. Different.
