Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2003
Nice fruity mix with a good combo of yeasty flavours. Glad to find some maltiness to it and no offensive banana flavours (not a fan of their Blonde). Had a background bitterness that took me a bit by suprise. If I was hosting another beer tasting I would definately have this available.

3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 Murky soft yellow with a big coriander and lemon nose, a good witbier aroma. Flavor is less sweet than the aroma, with some musty lemon and wheat characteristics. Slightly metallic though, in the nose, and musty as well. Grityy textured, somewhat sharp. Tastes of dark/old fruit.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2004
Hazy golden colour with a slightly spicy aroma. Warm spicy wheaty flavour with hints of coriander. Slightly disappointing - not as drinkable as 'normal' Hoegaarden

3.5
Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Spices, fruits and a bit of yeast in the aroma. Cloudy golden color, with a fast disappearing white head. Warm spicy taste, with hints of yeast and some orange. Warm alcohol feel. This is a fine belgian blond ale.

3.5
Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Dark cloudy yellow body, white foamy head. Fruit, wheat, banana and citrus aroma. Sweet and sour fruity flavor. Hides the high ABV very well!

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - APR 23, 2004
A very light and fruity beer. It's just doesn't have the overall quality I was expecting. Very good, but nothing great.

3.5
Boutip (6374) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 5, 2004
Bottle: Poured a golden colored beer with a huge thick head with great retention. Aroma is quite spicy with what seems to be some wheat. I was quite surprise by the taste which includes a fair share of spices, some sweet malt and again something similar to wheat. I thought the taste was closer to a tripel then a regular Belgian ale. The alcohol was well hidden which make this beer even more enjoyable. God, I wish American macros would taste like this sometimes.

3.5
joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2004
Cloudy amber w/ fluffy white head. Yeasty, spicy aroma of banana, peach, & orange. Soft, creamy feel. Yeasty, fruity & very spicy flavour of banana, peach, orange, orange peel, & coriander. Warm, peppery finish. Moderately complex beer.

3.5
tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Light brown/orange color, thick bubbly head. Sweet candy on the nose. Fruity flavor that has notes of candy, gum and some spices. Very smooth and quaffable.
