This brew pouirs with a cloudy orange body topped by a thick head wtih lots of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and slightly bitter with yeasty notes, some banana notes and a touch of spice. The flavor is slighlty sweet and yeasty with some spicy notes, a touch of orange and banana and a slight bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth and slightly warming. obxdude10 (2395) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2004

Opaque apricot color with nice fruity aroma. Citrus, aprictos, darker fruit flavors. Fairly malty, sugary. Pleasant aftertaste -- light hops & spices. My girlfriend & I really enjoyed this one. dolemike1 (1289) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Nice cloudy golden yellow, sweet, fruity, spicy nose, flavor of sweet fruits, peach?, citrus, spicy, nice carbonation, pleasant mouthfeel, finish is spicy, quite a nice job they did on this beer. muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Bottle. Bright peachy orange, smallish head. Delightful, strong fruity aroma: peaches, apricots, a hint of figs & bananas, yeast. Flavor disappointingly pedestrian, though: heavily yeasty and carbonated, with a spicy pepperiness and little fruity sweetness or malt character. Sour and mouth-puckering in the finish .. this seems way off to me, don't know if it's a bad bottle or I just don't like it.

Hazy orange color with small off-white head. Slight spicy-fruity nose. Medium body with fruity tast and watery finish. A little too much carbonation on this taste. bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - MAR 8, 2004

Tap, snifter. Yellow with slight head. Slight fruity/candi sugar aroma. Malty with a big full round flavor. Nothing special, but drinkable. Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Poured a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma was of citrus, fruits, and spices. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Peaches, lemon zest, orange peel, and spice on the tongue. For the style this was a nice beer, although it reminded me of a white beer. Gromit (478) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
WooHooo, finally a chance to use my new Orval glass I got from Liquid Solutions.
Pours a very cloudy amber with a rather disappointing head and no lacing.
Smells spicy and fruity.
Tastes is a very complex mixture of cloves, bananas, apricots, and a few other spices and fruits. Very nice indeed.
Mouthfeel is heavy for a Belgian but plenty of carbonation. Drinkability is good. Great price ($1.70) for a fine Belgian style beer.
