Bottle. Poured into a leffe chalice, it forms a beautiful 1" head. Belgian yeast aroma with light hop and spice flavor. Body is light to medium but should be sipped not chugged. I keep coming back to this one.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Clear golden pour, white head that lasted. Citrus and a spicy yeast flavor all the way, with light fruits coming through in the aftertaste, lemon, pear, and some banana with some sweetness. Not bad for a light belgian.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2007 Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a snifter, golden with very little head. Looks very much like a glass of apple juice. This one has a very bready taste with notes of citrus and yeast and a bitter finish. Very light, very drinkable, but lacks that special something to distinguish it from other Belgians.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2007
Wheat, spices and lemon grass notes in the aroma. Golden appearance with a pure white lively head. Slight rich cinnamon taste, with spice notes. Great texture. Fruit in there also. Not a bad beer.

Nephilium (1747) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2007
This pours a clear straw colored beer, with a thin head. The smell is a hint of sweetness. It has a hint of sweetness, and a hint of classic Belgium style. This beer is almost all hints however, with something lacking in it. Not a bad one to introduce people to, and not a bad one to have on hand, but overall, just a hint above average.

doubelknv3 (1085) - Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Had on tap and in bottle many times. I like this better than Chimay, but does not come close to rivaling Kwak or Saxo. Has a mild fruit and med. hoppy flavor.

On tap at the Winking Lizard in Columbus. Served in the proper glass that I got to take home. YAY! Nice golden color, good head, smelled sweet and citrusy. Very easy to drink, some fruit, honey, apples perhaps. Very drinkable! I liked it a lot!

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2008 Draft in Leffe glass - Cambridge UK. Nice bubblegum, fruit aroma balanced with exactly the right spices and hops. Thank God I found this beer on tap amidst the wasteland of bland industrial beer (Green King, etc) pub outlets found in this part of England.

From a slender 11.2 capped bottle with a blurb and best before date on the back label, 09.02.08. Poured a clear reddish orangey golden with a foamy white head that settled into a thin creamy, sudsy lacing, minimal amount of laced sticking. Aromas of bubble gum, yellow pears, a light sweet grainy maltiness and herbal hops. Good carbonation and a crisp, dryish, smooth medium bodied mouthfeel. Tastes of dry, tart fruitiness that meshes with the sweet honey, grainy malts, the alcohol has a stale, sterile flavor, softly warming in the palate, bready yeast, medicinal herbal hops with a biting bitterness towards the end, and a dry malty, herbal finish. Well, Ive seen this on the shelves of liquor stores for years and Ive finally tried, for me, it was a slightly above average Belgian pale ale, passable drinkability, but I wont be returning to this anytime soon.
