The ideal refreshment because of his lower alcohol content and his fruity taste and flavour.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2008
Bottle. Poured a hazy deep gold with champaign-like white head. Aroma of white grape. Flavor had light fruity sweetness with light malt...finish is dry. Palate feels like champaign as well....I can see why this would be a refreshing beer......not too heavy, tastes nice, nice aroma.....not a bad session beer.....

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2008
11.3 oz bottle. Cloudy orange beer with a white fast-fading head. Aroma is quite fruity. Peach and apricot with some soft black pepper. Spicy yeastiness with a soft Belgian malt base. Cotton candy sweetness and a bit of citrus. Yeasty and lightly herbal flavour. A bit of mint/spiciness on the back. Its not great, but Ive definitely had worse.

johndavidj99 (125) - Dallas, Maine, USA - JAN 23, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Hazy orange with white co2 head. It looks highly carbonated. Sweet acidic aroma. Malty sweet taste but too dry for me. Very light body. The high carbonation in combination with the dryness led to a less than enjoyable experience.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Hazy orange colour. Hoppy, citrusy nose. Fruit tastes, citrus, peach, orange. Some spices, including coriander. Texture quite smooth. But no punch really. Fair enough.

mmmbeer (1409) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2007
11.2 oz bottle poured into a tumbler- poured transparent thin yellow, a decent lacing head. Aroma of very light yeast and fruit. Hits the mouth with a thin body, no real detectable qualities, slight hop/alcohol finish. Ho-hmm.

Stew41 (1967) - Phuket, THAILAND - NOV 30, 2007
Nice looking beer; hazy orange, a touch of glow, and a medium sized fizzy head. Nose shows good (and balanced) fruits and some underlying malts. Maybe some fruity hops as well. Fizzy palate kills any chance of the flavours being able to shine. Some of the fruity character tries to poke through but the fizz drives a dry and slightly bitter / extracted flavour profile. Kinda like a Asahi with a fruity edge.

JoeinDahlem (1479) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2007
33 cL. Pours pale gold with a decent white head. Sweetish, grainy aromatics with some hops and grass. Fairly balanced flavor, lightly sweet with mild bitterness. Maybe a tad warming, considering the relatively low alcohol. Thin. A decent quaffer for washing down dinner, but nothing to write home about.

ilovedarkbeer (2733) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Surprised by this one. Pours a yellow golden color with a small white bubbly head. Smells very sweet and slightly fruity. Tastes is champagne like and is very refreshing. A very different belgian.
