Bottle. Pours a pale hazy yellow with a big white head with good retention and lacings. The aroma is peppery and somewhat floral hops, tobacco, fruity yeast and biscuity malts. The taste has gentle malty backbone, rather sweet. Peppery and floral hops. Citric notes. Notes of fruit and yeast. The finish is somewhat bitter with notes of grassy hops and a hint of alcohol. Medium body and medium carbonation. Easy to drink.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2009
25.4 oz bottle poured into a flute. Beautiful golden straw with an active meringue head and raucous carb. Craggy remains cling to the sides in clumps. Nose is fresh hay, orange blossom and dough. Smooth medium body with a crisp sparkle. Copious head settles to a yummy whipped cream dollop. Taste is orange peel, dried pineapple, toffee and grass. A wonderful beer experience in every way.

Pale hazy yellow with a big white head. Good retention and lacings. Aromas of eppery and somewhat floral hops, tobacco, fruity yeast and biscuity malts. The flavor has a gentle malty backbone, rather sweet. Peppery and floral hops. Citric notes. Notes of fruit and yeast. The finish is somewhat bitter with notes of grassy hops and a hint of alcohol. Medium body and medium carbonation. Easy to drink. A decent beer, no more. Didn’t live up to the hype. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

deflagro (106) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2009
Bottle. Pale yellow with a very large, white head. Smell is relatively weak, with nice floral notes of hop. Taste is rather sharp and fruity with some acidity and alcohol. A lot of esters and some pear juice. A bit sharp, but a good and interesting beer.

Christian (13678) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Cloudy golden with a big and lasting white head. Spicy and fruity aroma with citrus and pine hops. Alcohol is noticed. Intense sweet and fruity flavours with lots of alcohol, some yeast and a faint oxidation.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2009
A clear golden colored beer, with an enormously thick foamy white head. The aroma of spices with hops and fruits like citrus. The taste is fruity, citrus and orange. There are bitter hops with some spices. The aftertaste is dry with some sweets and it stays bitter for a while.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle sampled on 5/22/08: Pours a transparent bright golden with a full-lacing dense froth of white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale and biscuity malts with a grassy spicy hop nose. Body starts fairly full with a soft carbonation and nice authentic Belgian yeastiness along with smooth sweet biscuity complexity and hop bitterness. Very well balanced and enjoyable.
