Pours a hazy light amber into a Chimay glass. Thick microbubble head. Citrus, bread, dough and yeast aromas. Full and creamy with up front dried fruit (but not strong) and a dry, bitter, lasting finish. PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 Pours a deep orange color, fluffy, creamy white head. Very effervescent. Some dry, Belgian yeast, and a soft hoppiness. Hints of citrus. A classic I haven’t had in a long time. Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle, 750 ml "Cinq Cents" from 2004. Creamy white head, amber colour. Citric & resiny aroma with a hint of peppermint. Flavour is quite bitter, medium body. Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a large white head. Nose is malty and yeasty. Some hops, but mostly yeast and some fruit in the flavor. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2006
On Draft - Tampa Bay Brewing Company. Poured out yellow in color into a goblet with tall bright white foam head. Malt, spice and yeast aroma. Soothing Malt, spice and yeast flavor balanced somewhat by the citrus hops then slight bitter/sour finish. Carbonation was low for a Belgium beer which created the soothing mellow mix of flavors. Very tasty and refreshing. Didn’t sense any alcohol.

Bottle - Bought it for a special treat for stop day. First go at an authentic Trappist. First impressions a sweet almost fruity taste. Final impresions, wow that was well worth the money, and when I get a job will be put into the rotation. patrick767 (4063) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 6, 2006
11.2 oz bottle - Pours a hazy, light amber with a moderate head that soon fades to thin. It has a citrus and yeast aroma. The flavor mixes the sweetness and sour citrus of a Belgian very well. It’s bubbly, medium bodied and smooth. The 8% ABV is well masked and the finish is crisp. A bit more intensity and complexity would have suited me, but this is certainly a high quality ale. dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - MAY 3, 2006

Robe dorée très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse qui s’estompe. Arômes de houblon et de caramel. Saveurs de houblon amérisant, de caramel, de fruits, de sucre candi et de sirop d’érable. alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - MAY 1, 2006
Dirty yellowish amber, with a massive wipped cream head and excellent lacing, and a full body with a nose of cookie dough, dried fruits, pine. Palate is all alcohol! behind the ethonal is a very compex tasting of bread, yeast, wine, dried fruits (apple and apricot) and some melted butter. This tasted subdued by the alcohol comes back with a dry finish. Not my style, allready drunk. Maybe as a cocktail drink it would be great!.
