Poured from a bottle [10 / 10 / 108 1744]. Hazy golden orange color, mediumsized white head Tastes citrusy, hoppy, sweet. Lightly carbonated. A very well balanced beer. And very enjoyable. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Bottle. Pour was amber/brown with a thick and creamy off white head. Aroma of fruity Belgian yeast and light spice. Very finely balanced brew with flavors as well as carbonation. Flavors are fruity, yeasty, very light clove and spice, but all were very well blended. I’m impressed. This brew was almost a session type beer. I’d love to drink many of this one.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2009 TAP: at Stub & Herb’s, 2.22.09. Rich amber pour, spicy banana on the nose. Not boozy, but drinks like a higher ABV beer. Great Belgian flavor. Miksu (5053) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2009
12 oz bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. Hazy amber color. Tart, fruity and spicy aroma with mango, apricot and clove. Sweet flavo with fair amount of tropical fruits, clove, pepper and low bitterness. Fairly tasty, a bit too sweet for me. NachlamSie (3523) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2009

On tap at Goose Island O’Hare. Pours a cloudy copper with a nice head. The aroma is yeasty with hints at clove, banana, and an array of spices. All aspects are tastefully balanced. The mouthfeel is medium and works well. The finish is barely bitter with a fair amount of hops, but this is mostly about the esters. I get vinous hints with lots of clove and coriander. This is very drinkable.
on tap at the twisted fork .....very fine head...pin point bubbles...very fruity nose and better on the flavor side......not bad...but a tad sweet for my tastes..... duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2009
Bottle. Meant to resemble Orval (or i think i remember someone saying this to me, could be wrong). This is sweeter, with less noticeable brett characters than you would find in Orval. Still pleasant Belgian-ness, with soem slightly dry bitter hops in the finish. jkwalking05 (4743) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2009

Bottle & Draft. Copper color with white head. Aroma: Fruity with notes banana and yeast. Medium bodied with fruit and hop flavors. stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Pours a nice medium amber. The nose is some spicing, orange citrus, sweet malts, herbal hops, and some yeast. Comes across the palate Initially it tasted slightly sour like many Belgian ales but changed to a complex floral taste and finished like a traditional Belgian, with a lingering finish.
