johno (185) - Galveston, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Pale gold.. funky aroma, hint of vinegar, barnyard, spice, citrus.. mildly sour, lacks flavor; just not a lot going on at all, disappointing.

Medium straw, cloudy. Assertiveeasty nose. Medium body, moderate flavor, refreshing mouthfeel, good length. Moderate bitterness and sweetness, adequate acidity. Coriander stands out, tangerine, blood orange. Very pleasant, grows on you. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rjplumer (1018) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Bready coriander spice aroma. The body is a hazy yellow with a hint of amber. Thin covering of white foam blankets the top. Bread malt taste with a touch of coriander and spice. . Smooth silk feeling. Warms the palate. Pleasant and drinkable.

Light yellow in color no head. Notes of grass, Apple, malts, spicy hops. A nice strong ale for the price

PorterPounder (7544) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky medium golden, little to no head. Aroma of bubble gum and sugar water, Flavor is decidedly sweet with some Belgian candii sugar notes, some cotton candy, a touch of bubble gum. Mouthfeel has a decent stickiness to it. Passable.

Aurelius (5129) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Misty patch-amber, standard 12 oz longneck, OK label. Sourish, slightly plasticky, plummy, yeasty aroma. On the front end, I thought it would do better. Woody saison thing. Mossy, a little diacetyl, yeasty, mineral, sour fruit. Has interesting flairs here and there, but also blows the shift at times, too. New Leaf Market.

"i realized when pouring this ive never had a light Grand Cru before...til now. cloudy straw yellow, aroma of grassy hops, herbs and spices, belgian yeast. pretty basic, but light and refreshing. not enough going on to go back for more, though."

KyotoLefty (9535) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle. From old notes. With herbs and spices, by the original maker of Hoegaarden. Very similar to Hoegaarden Grand Cru, but not quite as good. Not as rich and malty, the flavor just is not up to the other, although it is a pretty pleasant beer.

J_man (947) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 30, 2014
This seems to taste like a strong version of Celis white! Bright, light golden color with a thin white head. Fresh vegetal/celery aroma and taste with coriander notes and some black pepper. Smooth, creamy malt background with a slight nuttiness. Good alcohol bite that I think seems stronger due to the spice herbaceousness. Spices last long after the sip. Another great Celis beer that Ill be hoping makes a comeback soon!

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAR 12, 2014
Formerly brewed. With beers like this one it is not shocking. Brownish color pour. Candy, yeasty, malts in the nose. Taste is kind of odd, watered down, and not really anything like a BSA should be. I appreciate the attempt at creating one of the better styles of beer to come out of Belgium, but this one was just boozy and unbalanced.

Draft. Medium gold, light head. Weak yeast influence, some coriander, hints of malts and hops; not watery but not full flavored either. Okay.
