Golden orange color with a large white head that settles quickly. Aroma of nuts and light spice. Slightly thin body, but decent malt and nutty flavor. Oakes (19409) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2008
Hazy golden, with a very thick head. Very spicy yeast aroma wiht accents of banana, pineapple and coriander. Very sweet, quity spicy but farly well balanced. This is growing on me as I work through it. bhensonb (15967) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2008
750 ml brown bottle at wine frig temperature. Rich aroma of light raisin, like golden sultana. Peach juice color with a fine, fluffy white head. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is an odd combination of fruits and spice. Started with a touch of grapefruit, but that passed on to something like mild spiced peach. Light caramel malt. The finish is a bit bland and dry compared to the start, and has some bitter. Each sip is a spurt of Belgian flavor, and then it goes bland. So keep on sipping. It’s a really good drink.

Bottle from Party Town, KY. Poured clear amber with a moderate fizzy white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeasty citrus fruity aroma. Medium body. Medium complex sweet citrus flavor with a medium tart citrus musty finish of moderate duration. Drinkable soft beer. crossovert (14134) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2011
750ml brown synthetic corked and caged bottle.
It pours an amberish/brownish/red rather than a blonde. It has a thick white head that leaves a lot of lacing.
The smell is fruity, there are some slight herbal hops over that, and a bit of sweetness, it is simple but effective.
The flavor has a hint of vegetal, herbal, earthiness, it isn’t all that good. It is yeasty with some fruit, slight hop flavors, and some caramel.
A supremely average Belgian Pale.

Bottle. [thanks after4ever]hopscotch (11433) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Pours hazy orange with a nice, creamy, off-white head. Good lacings. Aroma has some yeast, light grapefruit, soft pepper. Medium carbonation, fine dry and oily palate. Flavour is dry, some cardboard, oranges, yeast, mild malty, a touch of bitterness with some grapefruit thrown in. Not spectacular (especially the cardboard detracts), but nicely drinkable.
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Good retention. Fruity, yeasty nose with notes of biscuit, apricot and mandarin orange with hints of coriander and pepper. Sweet, biscuity, fruity flavor with tasty, woodsy-aged hops and restrained bitterness provided by the alcohol or yeast. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Sweet, breadsy finish. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Thanks to Matta for this. The pour was turbid gold with a huge frothy head that kept coming back at repours. The aroma was spicy floral, hopcitric, some cloves, apricots, and pear. The taste was pleasantly pale malty and spicy floral up front, with some mid-palate floral hop notes, and some backdoor Bretty barnyardy funk. Very complex and well balanced, this one was great as I sat in a gorgeous 80 degree day, watching my son hammer a baseball while i smoked a CAO EMS-wrapper cigar.
