Tap at the Bryant Lake Bowl. Blonde in color with an inch high head of white foam. Strong lemon aroma with a lot of peppery spiciness happening, and a bit of sugary bread dough. Tastes of citrus, pineapple, orange rind, and some yeasty funk in the back. Ends with a sourdough flavor. Very nice and pleasant to drink. dwyerpg (6402) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2007
This is one excellent beer. Spicy and biting, it’s both bubbly and tasty. Wonderful, truly as good as advertised. sojifio (11) - madison, Alabama, USA - JAN 3, 2007
nice head and lacing on an opaque golden pour. very sweet and wonerful aroma. great initial taste, though dissapears very quickly after swallow. solid but falls a little short browner (42) - Delafield, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Apearance is quite nice with he contrast of the golden cloudiness and the white foamy head. The flavor will vary from batch to batch but generally a hint of candy,spice and fruit. The depth of the beer falls a bit short with an ending that finishes to fast for a sweet Belgium for me. All in all it is still worth trying and maybe comming back to now and again. ford9719 (371) - Vilseck, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 Bottle. Poured a murkey golden color with a white frothy head. Has the hint of spice, bananas and citrus. Taste like a pineapple.

Sometimes Belgian beers just don’t hit it. This one doesn’t. The pour was a very light yellow/gold with an offendingly large head. The aroma was a spicey sweet mix of fruit and malt. Classic Belgian taste but seems as if it falls short after the swallow. There are better Belgian beers (try saying that 3 times fast) BenDover (230) - Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2006
This is an overrated and overhyped beer. Not what I would call complex. Has a bit of a flat, tinny taste to it. Not bad, but I was underwhelmed given what I had been led to expect. bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2006
Pours a pretty clear light color with a white head. Aroma of belgian sugar and also some Flavor had some sweetness a little burning and a lot of belgian flavor. Not too bad when you dont have to pay for it. beachbum25 (1092) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Bottle-Poured a light golden color w/a huge white head. Classic Belgian aroma w/a little bit of sweetness to it. Light, sweet citrus flavor, w/some dough & spice. Also had some sweetness, like a cotton candy/rock candy. Not overly complex or multi layered like a great Belgain, kind of hit you all at once & that was that. Pleasent malt finish w/a touch of bitterness. I’d drink this one again, solid brew. boojummy (50) - Medford, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 25, 2006
From a 25.4 oz bottle I got for Christmas. I was quite surprised with the white voluminous head that this beer produced upon pouring. Body is brilliantly clear, like a lager. In fact, I almost expected it to taste like one. Aroma, however, is quite different than a lager-- quite estery-- reminiscent of bananas/cloves. Flavor is nothing like a lager, either. Classic Belgian flavor profile. Malt and hop bitterness are in perfect balance, with a long, pleasant hop aftertaste. Complex fruity flavors. Foam lacing like crazy. Great brew. Had an empty stomach, though, so at 8.5% abv, this really kicked my ass.
