The looks of the beer are quite nice. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer has a nice silky look, because of the nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. Foam retention is quite good.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is a nice Belgian Ale smell. It is spicy, robust and bold. I smell some nice malty aromas at first, giving a nice sweetness. Besides this, there is a lovely fruity aroma. I smell some orange, some zest and touches of koriander and other spices. There is also a floral touch. The floral and coriander touches seem hop derived. I like those hoppy touches. Pairs lovely with the malts.
The taste of the beer is also nice. I taste some nice malty base tones, with some fruity flavours. I also taste nice bitter hops, with some zesty citrus and floral flavours, with a touch of spiciness. All is very well balanced. I like it.
The palate of the beer is nice. Medium body, smooth and a nice medium carbonation. The finish of the beer has a nice fruitiness, together with some bitter hops and a spicy touch. All in all, a lovely beer. Traditionally Belgium, but with more power and kick. It isn’t stuck in tradition, but leaves room for development. I love it. Great work.

330 ml bottle from trade with Papsoe. Pours a cloudy golden color with nice, finger-size fluffy white head. Head lingered throughout the drink. Aroma is sweet, yeasty with some citrus fruit - lemon maybe? Taste sure is Belgian - yeast, citrus, some spice - but not distinct. Kinda weak in the Belgian flavor. Medium-to-thin mouthfeel with some carbonation.

A decent ale in its class. Blond and refreshening, has the potential to become a standard. EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2013
Dorée claire, pétillance moyenne, col fin. Du début malté, on ne passe pas trop vite au houblon à cause d’un côté lavasse. Manque cruellement de nuances! gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle, courtesy Papsoe. Pours a light murky caramel color, with a fizzy half-inch of white head, and drippy wet lacing. Clove aroma, banana, raisin, cream, some oats and grain. Belgian yeast prominent in the flavor, coriander, some zest, hoppy bitterness, and a distinct chalkiness. Body is clean and refreshing overall. Quite drinkable.
