Pours with a clear golden yellow hue with a small white head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is of spices, alcohol, wheat, oats and other grains - some hops but not much Flavor is spicy all the way through -tastes quite good actually. Lightish-medium mouthfeel, with light carbonation.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden yellow color, with a fairly frothy white head. Aroma is of yeasty dough, slighty amount of spice, grassy hops and sweet malts. Flavor is quite yeasty, with notes of dough, a faint touch of spice like coriander and clove, some grassy and citrussy hops and fairly sweet malts. It is also fairly fruity with some banana notes. The body is medium and slightly watery, and a slightly dry mouthfeel. Overall a solid belgian ale, that would work great as a session beer!

MrBeerFanatic (1059) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Light amber high carbonation thick retention for a frothy cloud white head that wont subside anytime today. Aromas of hops, grain, medium caramel, light fruit, touch of wet wood, light spice. Spicy, zesty, tad bit earthy, little grassy. Many of these minor but subsequently mixed complicated strains of aroma flow through in there own way to the mouth. Light wood, slight earthy tone, caramel that swiftly complements the light undertone of the light hop zests, and quick light noted of grain and grass. A blonde not for the blond, as to say in a sense, the blind.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours a clear deep golden color with a foamy white head. Faint malty aroma with some fruits and cheap ale. Slightly bitter and average sweetness in the flavor. Nothing really interesting here.

Yellow with a touch of gold in color. Transparent as well. Banana and some sour fruit. Coriander and spice also. Creamy, smooth mouth feel. Vanilla but yummy.
