Fruit, grass and mint aroma. Light amber, beige head, good lace. Sweetish, alcoholic, bitter, grassy, ho toffee. Medium body, little sticky. Nice beer but nothing exciting.

Amber colour. Nice white head. Great bitterness in the aftertaste Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours an amber/orange body. The head was big and fluffy for about 20 seconds, then reduced to a pillowy rim of white froth. Big aroma of pine tree and perfume with subtle fruit. The flavors penetrate with leaves, big resin, tangerine, dough, more perfume, pine cone, grapefruit, and other spices. Full body and light/medium carbonation. Quite enjoyable. BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Draft at the Nook. Dark amber in the glass with a creamy off-white head that had some lasting. Aroma of pine and floral. The flavor had pine and caramel with a floral backing. Medium body and medium bitterness. BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Not sure how I like mixing my two favorite styles (belgian ale and IPA) but I decided to try it. Not too bad. It leaned further into the IPA, although it did have some belg. ale qualities. Pours an amber color with excellent clarity. Head was off white and medium in size. Nose was banana, hops, candy, some pine and some vint like notes. Taste has some dark fruits, plum, and a slight bitter with bananas. fair balance of hops even things out and give it a candied like quality. not bad.

Sweet aroma of banana and lemon. Not unlike a classic hefe. Surprised there aren’t more hops detectable in the nose. Just some faint pine. Looks amber in color with a frothy head that ends up sitting very thinly on top of the beer. Tastes like... hmm... I’m not quite sure. Banana from the Belgian yeast, but also some sweet caramel flavor from the malt backbone. Finish is strongly bitter. MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2010
Bouteille de 12 oz. Arômes présentant une touche d’esters fruités et un houblon américain rappelant les agrumes. Robe orangée et limpide, peu de mousse et effervescence moyenne. À la fois bien équilibrée et complexe, le malt montre une très belle texture moelleuse et veloutée, sans être trop sucré. Le houblon fruité est également bien présent et mène à une finale relativement amère, appuyée par une bonne présence d’alcool. Le côté belge de cette bière est discret, mais c’est tout de même très agréable. Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 30, 2010
12oz bottle. Poured a clear copper with a small off-white head - a thin layer lasted until the end of my glass. Aroma was very nice: floral, fruit, citrus, some type of earthy/tartness, hops, spice - all very mixed into a tight web. Taste was good but not as good as the aroma: full but mellow hops (mild citrus & pine), notes of floral, fruit & some earthy flavor (I wish I knew what this was), some spice, big (but mellow) malt backbone. Medium body. Nice enough finish: taste just lingering and a mellow bitterness. Overall a good brew: some depth, good enough balance.... I only wish the taste had matched the aroma.

A clear amber/orange colored beer, with a thick foamy off white head. The aroma of citrus, it’s hoppy. There are fruits. The taste is gentle bitter with several fruity notes and some spices in the back. The aftertaste is bittersweet. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Very floral. Extremely strong hop aromas plus nice belgian yeast spiciness. A very strong beer, that I wish was maybe a tad less alcoholic. Good stuff, nevertheless.
