Draught Fully hazy amber-olive; good yellowish head, leaving lace. Nose of diacetyl, flowery, butterscotch. Honey, diacetyl, green beer AND glue. This is one amassment of severe shortcomings. Sticky, but the beer is refreshing - at least one good thing. Whatever did the brewer think of getting this beer out of the tanks already? erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Slightly hazy yellow. Aroma of corriander and some sweet malts. Maybe some anise. Lots of fruity esters of citrus apricots and cloves from a high ferment temp no doubt. Some sourish notes w/ a nice drying hoppy finish. Terminus (3716) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 10, 2005

Clean lemon-yellow body with a sudsy white head. Estery nose of light banana and citrus with a pale malt underbelly and clove-like notes. Very good balance of phenolic spice, nutty malt, and moderate levels of stale Noble hops. Light but noticeable alcohol. A very solid Belgian blonde ale. This would make a great session beer. Light enough to stick with but keeps your interest. Thanks to Stan Hieronymus for sharing this rarity straight from Belgium.
