11.2 ounce bottle in pint glass. Copper reddish with nice head and a little lace. Toffee yeasty aroma. Toffee flavor with very mild melon fruitiness and a brainy bready finish. Medium-light body and medium carbo. Pretty good for a session amber. This is what Fat Tire copies. Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 6, 2009
On tap. Clear light amber color with a super short white head. The aroma had a touch of yeast, sweet caramel malts and some light citrus. The flavor was sweet caramel malt a light touch of yeast and some citrus. Light bodied, went down easy and was actually a decent pairing with my ribs. eManu (544) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2009
Had this on tab in The Grill Roissy village, it pours clear copper color with a thin white head. Taste very light and smooth, with a little bitter sweet after taste and some vegetable notes. Very light carbonation. I find this to be a very light amber beer, and easy to drink. Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2009
Pours a clear brown, reddish, colour with a small size head and loads of carbonation.
Smell is rather wheaty and seems to be rather vague to me, not the typical belgian ale.
Taste isn’t very much to my liking, yeasty bready flavour to it. luttonm (6308) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2009
Tap. Totally strange for a Belgian ... sweet bready ale. Seemed a belgian-yeasted american dark ale.

Shared this with oldrtybastrd as many others have also been drank. This poured yellow and had a spicey aroma and some sweet tastes before the grain. mjg74 (3106) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Bottle from Valley Farm Market. Very light amber color. Has almost a pinkish hue. Aroma is grainy with some breadiness. Flavor is malty with more bread. Fairly bland and watery. Pretty poor excuse for a Belgian. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - DEC 29, 2008
on tap- Poured a mostly clear amber hue with a white head that had minimal retention. Aroma was a mix of fruity notes and some sweet bread notes. Flavor seemed to be light and well balanced between fruity notes and bread notes. Carbonation was minimal and the palate was mild. easy to drink. SeanMacGC (334) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 19, 2008
Bottle, 750ml, in a Trappist glass. Pours deep, very appealing, amber, with initially frothy white head, and residual lacing. Quite fruity on the nose, but unfulfilling on the palate, and weak mouthfeel. Initial promise of bursting flavour on the tongue quickly gives way to an insipidness overall. Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2008
Bottled 33cl. It pours a copper beer with a small tanned head. Dissapointing sweet malty nose with hints of vegetables, raisins, cereals and honey. Metallic. A lot of hay in the taste which is sweet malty. Very low bitterness. Watery and slightly sour. Hints of vegetables, chestnuts and metal showing up. Not much lacework. Unpleasant metallic finish. Very poor.
