IglooCool (5) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2007 does not count
Big rocky white head that sticks to the side of the glass like melted marshmallows, crystal clear golden body with a stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hidden by the head, but has a little bit of an earthy essence to it with a bit of sweetness. As head drops and beer warms, some yeastiness comes out. No esters. A slight touch of spice for faint bubblegum. Flavor begins with a sugar sweet at the tip of the tongue. As the beer moves back over the tongue, the carbonation picks up to add bitterness to the profile. Finishes fairly dry with that tongue tip sweetness lasting a bit longer than anything else. Hop bitterness becomes more present as it warms, but again accentuated by the carbonation. Speaking of carbonation, it has a definite bite to an otherwise soft beer. Mouth feel is medium and smooth. Although, there is a slight harshness of astringency that lingers.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2007
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a clear, pale straw-colored gold. Head is active at pour, but dissolves to a thin cap quickly. Good lace on this one. Ripe apple aroma, just slightly tinged with spice. Flavor can be called middle-of-the-road Belgian, but its very friendly and approachable. Theres a sharp fruity snap, some alcohol warmth, and the distinctive yeasty touch on the palate. Im not a huge fan of Belgian beer, but am exploring the style again after a number of years. Tastes change over time, so its always good to go back outside your lines once in a while.

Typical belgian, decent for its type. The appearance is pale golden, with fizzy carbonation. The aroam is yeasty and spicy, like a normal belgian. The flavor doesnt disappoint. Its a mix of yeast, fruit and spiciness. The finish is sweetness with a little spicy ring to it. The mouthfeel is thin to medium. Not bad overall.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - DEC 24, 2007
Bottled. This is one of those "turn-to" beers that can always satisfy me when only such larger breweries (e.g. the likes of Chimay) are available in certain locations. Fruity, yeasty aroma of pear and citrus. Light golden color with rocky white head, lots of coriander, pear and raisins in the flavor. All backed up with classic Belgian yeast on the palate, crisp and refreshing.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 22, 2007
Poured clear amber with a huge head. Aroma was yeasty, sweet fruits, and a bit of pepper. Taste was about the same, throwing in some odd sugar and a can of skol tobacco. Finished tangy, alcohol was noticeable even at the low abv.

Perm (151) - Tryon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2007
A "macro" Belgian pale-"abbey style," but in a beer wasteland such as Columbia, SC, I was happy to see it on an otherwise bleak menu. (The Melting Pot) It was served in the wrong glass, but hey -- 1) they had it, and 2) they served it in a glass. Appeareance is a golden pilsner color with a thin head. Nose: Belgian yeast, sugar, vanilla, and pipe tobacco. Flavor: oats, hops, white raisins, mild hominy, and slight coriander. Pleasant. Palate: just fine, really. Overall: quaffable, plenty pleasant enough to enjoy if somewhat blandly industrial. Id have it again.

Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Light copper color with a thick creamy head. Aroma and flavor are strongly similar to an amber with strong corriander notes classic to a Belgian.

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2007
Slightly yeasty aroma of oranges and coriander - quite fresh. The flacour is likewise. Fresh and fruity with some yeasty esters and phenols tickling your tongue. The end is medium dry with some hops and bitternes. Not that bad for an macro ale like this...

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2007
Smell is somewhat sweet and malty with a mild presence from the belgian yeast. Sweet, creamy and smooth flavor of honeyed maltiness. Not cloying or overly dry and bubbly like some belgians can be. Extremely smooth, creamy and drinkable, especially for a style Im not generally fond of. This is definitely worth another try and I was impressed.

billk (353) - Coeur dAlene, Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2007
bottle 11.2 oz. Golden almost clear, white head that fell rather quickly to almost nothing. Nice full Belgian aroma of yeast and spices including clove and coriander. Flavor is well into medium bodied with a bit of peppery spiciness to go along with the aroma descriptions. Not too sweet, with a well balanced, moderate bitterness. This is a decent Belgian for the price. It does seem to be just a bit abrupt and lacking refinement though. Holds its flavor profile up well with food.
