sneakychi (75) - - DEC 16, 2013
Clear, yellow/orange. White head, constantly reinforced by small bubbles. Aroma is yeast, citrus, sweet malt, cleaning product, ash (?), a little ripe banana. Makes me think of a tripel. Nice! Taste is quite balanced with a small sweetness and bitterness. Heavily carbonated, kind of watery on the palate.

It has a very tasty caracter. The coriander is dominant,but that’s great. It gives a very special feeling. Doesn’t really bitter, either sweet or sour. I would buy it again.

19Oracolo78 (180) - ITALY - MAY 20, 2017
Birra color oro opalescente. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Al naso sentori agrumati con note floreali. Al corpo leggero con richiami lievemente citrici, con note di pesca bianca e nettarine. Nel finale fresca e poco amara. Una buona birra e molto beverina.

theprof (886) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2017
Bottle. Aroma citrus, ginger with a definite zing. Pours pale gold with white foam top. Broken lacing. Taste gas bubble gum yeast and lemon notes. A refreshing beer with the possibility of drinking several which is less feasible with its Trappist brethren. Light body with some soft residue on the palate at the end. Mildly irritating like autocorrect to American English.

Zilverenmaan (153) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 16, 2017
Aroma faint, spicy. Taste spicy again ( coriander ), wheat clearly noticable, some yeast. Nothing spectacular but delicate with a soft, fresh lingering aftertaste of wheat.

Jabic (537) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Ar: Bubblegum, juicy fruit, candied peach, and lemon; very slight hint of banana and earthy mushroom. Ap: Golden and clear; medium-large white head with a rocky structure and moderate retention, leaving chunks of foam as it subsides and an uneven, though fully covering, cap of foam. T: Peach, bubblegum, and minerality up front; juicy fruit and banana notes come in the mid-palate and continue through; very bright and tropical; medium bitterness with an austere fruit and orange-and-spiced-tea flavor to the hops; dry mineral finish. P: Light body with high carbonation; finish is very dry. O: Delicious Belgian table-strength beer; the fermentation profile is wonderful, with copious though balanced flavors of fruit and spice; very dry and quaffable, accented by the firm bitterness and mineral qualities.

wlajwl (6665) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 3, 2017
Aroma is spices and grainy/bready malts/pale malts. The flavor is Belgian yeast, spices, mild funky sweet in the middle and and a slightly warming finish.

Bule (2118) - California, USA - MAY 1, 2017
12oz bottle pours a pale straw color with a lot of white frothy head. Nice spice balance. A little zesty. Refreshing.

malrubius (2836) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 29, 2017
Bottle from CBC Belmont. Hazy gold with dense white head and lace. LIght coriander spice and vanilla grassy aroma. Medium sweet vanilla apricot with light spicy bitterness and light coriander finish. Light crazy soft body with very fine internal carbo that accentuates hops, coriander and sugar sweetness. Very complex for a low abv beer.

Aggiebob (1072) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 28, 2017
Bottle. It poured a hazy gold color with a nice white head. The aroma was floral and fruity with notes of grapes, banana, bread dough yeast, and spices. Taste is sweet.
