Decent looking beer, doesn't taste too bad either. Smell, tast and afterbite all seemed a bit odd but Im chalking that up to it being a Belgian. ravidesai (979) - Bombay, INDIA - FEB 7, 2003
golden color, foamy white head. had a bland unifirm sweetness at first but as the beer warmed up it developed more body and a citic hop taste balanced with sweet herbal notes. Crit (4057) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2002

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2007 Bottle (BB Apr/2011). Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, toasted grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of lemon zest and dried pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A bit on the sweet side, which makes it less drinkable than anticipated. Nice enough aroma though.

Orange/rust color with a cloudy appearance. Initial large white sticky head that settled to the sides of the glass with what looked like a dollup of cream in the center. Aromas of orange and caramel. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with flavors of toffee, coriander and clementine. Love the crockery. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2002
Very golden in color; Head was thick to start, but faded fast- nice lace though; Nose was just like Orval- dry hops. Palate is thin is the first impression. Surprisingly bland. Boring. belgianhomebrew (645) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2002
Very light and mellow belgian ale. Almost a session beer, even though it is 7.2%. joet (2662) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2001
If it weren't $10 a bottle it might be a session ale. It's notably soft with a very thorough melding of yeast, malt and bitter. Some initial dishrag and brett aromas. Very nice presentation. Tart, citric, and some spice on the tongue belies it's strength. Some lemony flavors with a hint of banana are balanced softly by a uric acid, tart and bitterness. Very interesting.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2004 Tasty Belgian 'session' ale (at 7.2%!). Fresh, hoppy flavours, less yeast than a lot of Belgians, and subtle complexity. I love the orangey-amber colour.
