picknbrew (196) - Mechanicsville, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2010 750ml bottle at a BJCP study session. Pours a golden color with some haze. Some candy like malty sweetnes in the aroma. A little grainy with some sweetness on the front end of the taste. Finishes dry with a nice spicy hop bitterness. Pretty clean finish for a belgian. Great malt character.

WVHouseofBeer (1042) - West Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Poured a dark, hazy golden color with a small white head that disappeared quickly. Sweet candy aromas of yeast, honey and butterscotch. Earthy sweet flavors of honey, spices and fruit. Finish is very dry with lively carbonation. A very well made beer from one of my favorite styles.

AskForJenny (1076) - Ontario, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2010
0.75l - Straw clorored liquid under thick white head. Woody, vegtable nose. No real flavor, watery and refreshing. Nutty flavor entered as it warmed. A solid example of the style.

CanIHave4Beers (4153) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Pours a hazy blonde color with a good head and good retention. The aroma is honey with a nice light spiciness and baguette just tons of fresh baked baguette. The flavor is very bready with some good yeastiness, generally dry but has a nice sweet honey flavor that kind of lingers. Really tasty stuff.
