3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber with a medium head, decent lacing left behind. Aroma of bitter orange, yeast, banana, bubble gum. Light bodied, yeasty flavor profile, crisp finish, refreshing, packed with Belgian flavor, considering it’s a light bodied 4.5% session ale. Well done. Could easily have a few of these for breakfast (on a Saturday, of course).
From Sept 2008
I got this bottle in a trade with jwc215. Thanks Joe!
It pours a cloudy orange with a 1 finger head of foam. Decent head retention and there's some lacing.
The smell has notes of peach, yeast, wheat, a touch of banana.
The taste is yeasty, has some peach, light banana, slightly spicy, a bit of citrus and some earthiness. Sounds interesting but the flavours don't work all that well together.
Light bodied with a medium level of carbonation, it finishes earthy and then goes all watery. Not bad but not something I would drink again. jflopsu (1862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Pours a lightly hazy gold-orange with white head. A strong belgian aroma of citrus, wheat and yeast. A sweet citrus and wheaty taste with pine, malts, and yeast. A refreshing and medium body beer with a lingering citrus and wheat aftertaste. samsmith33 (772) - - JUL 25, 2015
A bit strong for summer and breakfast. Wheaty , fruity, .
Aroma is sour fruit, lemon,pine.

Not awful, but not matching expectation of beer type.

In no way a Belgian ale--ABV is too low and it’s far, far too hoppy in its aroma, foretaste, and finish--but it has enough malt and other notes to keep things at least somewhat interesting if not quite enjoyable raymow (1865) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2015
bottled - color is pale golden/orangey. Flavor is malt and hops. Ok but nothing special.

Poured from bottle. Faint aroma of wet malt and citrus. Decent lookin gold amber with a bit of head. Tasting roasted malt, citrus hops, coriander, pepper, maybe a trace of melon. A pleasant surprise as I was expecting something much lighter. johnnnniee (4457) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle from jcwattsrugger, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a hazy deep golden color with a decent sized but quickly fading bubbly white head, Sweet bready malt aroma mixed with a fair amount of light fruit and hints of spice. The flavor is sweet bready malt with a bit more yeasty flavors than the aroma suggested. Light citric tartness and fruit round us out nicely. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. A bit fuller in body than I normally associate with a summer brew, but honestly I’d rather drink this! Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma was light & fruity with citrus, yeast and lemon. Flavor of citrus, yeast, fruit, wheat and had a touch of spice. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2014
tap. deep golden with one finger head. mild flavor with light belgian spice. a bit sweet. eh. kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold to copper body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is pale malt, some light perfumy hops, Belgian yeast, and a slight sweetness. The flavor is pretty light and delicate with some light bitterness, and a touch of alcohol. There’s a little Belgian character and residual sweetness on the finish. Lighter bodied with fizzy lively carbonation and some light alcohol. Not the most interesting and complex Belgian ale, but it’s pretty interesting.
