UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 I’m surprised that this does not rate higher. This beer represents everything I like about Belgian beer and all of those qualities that American brewers cannot seem to replicate when brewing their own versions of classic Belgian styles. My sample was soft and subtle, with orchard fruit flavors, blunt hops and yeasty notes. Some of the flavors that I find in the great abbey beers like Rochefort.
My second sample was no disappointment, but this time I definitely noticed some wild watermelon notes I didn’t get the first time. Great stuff this. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Tap at Capones. Pours a very light mostly clear golden with a nice white head. Aroma is very fruity- belgiean yeasty estery - pear, tropical fruit juice and strawberry- esp as it warmed with a light spciy yeast, and crackery malts. Flavor is malty pils, crackers, toast, hay- grassy hops, and way too much strawberry fruity ester- very bubblegum like overall. A bit too strange and out of control on the fermentation temps.

Cloudy yellow color with a soapy white head. Aroma of banana, wheat, and spice. Flavor of spice, hops, and wheat. Different and very enjoyable. notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2009
33cl bottle - pours a cloudy gold, a substantial, lasting, frothy head - complex, earthy nose, with notes of herbs, wildflowers, spicy hops, lemon zest, white pepper, wheat, light funk and acidity - spicy, hoppy and herbal up front - this is followed by some wheat, tangy citrus, wet grass/hay - some husky character - gains a little bit of sweetness near the finish, which is tempered by warming spices and a light peppery quality - there are better belgian ales out there, but this is quite solid.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid deep gold with 1-finger white head. Nose is hopcit, malt, candy sugar, slight funk. Tastes citric, with orange zest, funk, spic, malt, and a medium heft of palate and complexity. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of floral, herbal, and spicy notes, seemingly all from hops, and complex, light grain notes. Flavor brings in some citrus but again focuses in on wheat, hay, grass, as well as some clove, pepper, and nutty/earthy yeasty notes. Finishes with a spice and apricot kick. Really nice stuff.
