Aroma of orange and fruity malt. Copper color with a decent white head. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is so Belgian. Citrus/coriander it is. Mild yeast/spice. Noble hop. Yet mild overall. Very fresh. It is well balanced, and the finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Almost crisp. The flavors are consistent from beginning to end. Good stuff. Bubble gum? Yeah.

Pours a relatively dark (compared to the lighter color I had been expecting) golden orange with a reasonable head. Aroma of apricot tea, tannic leaves and a bit of bubblegum, honey and more stale apricot tea. Before tasting I have pretty high hopes, but it ll vanishes with a few sips. Vegetal off-tastes and moldy tea leaves. A bit more columbus hops than one might expect from the style contribute a recognizable house flavor, but I’m unimpressed overall and actually a little surprised at the relatively high ratings this one has garnered. If anything I’m being generous with the 2.9 I’ve given it.
22-oz bottle from 99 Bottles in Federal Way, Wash. Incredible bubble-gum aroma if served in the right glass (e.g., Duvel glass or other style that cups up around the nose). Full, rounded sweetness plus coriander spice and tropical citrus. Light hop bitterness melds with a candied fruitiness. Creamy, luscious. A "must-revisit beer" every spring! carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2008
light orange, clear body with thin white head, apricot and orange on the nose with a candied sugar taste that fades to some nice bitter finish. bb (9697) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle. Rich caramel, dark cream colored head. Estery, bubblegum, yeast, light banana, and fruit aroma. Yeasty, spicy, slight bibblegum, slight mineral flavor. Medium bodied. Spice, light yeast, light breadiness lingers.

On tap. fruity aroma, typical Spring blend. Nice amber colour, no overly strong yeast taste. Mild fruity finish. Better than the average Spring, but still not a spring fan. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2008

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Update: I had a version of this on tap that was a coriander coctail. Poured like brown mud, thick and opaque, nose/favor everything was coriander. Almost tea/health drink like in a way, i’m not sure what was up, but aweful.
Pours aber with a red hue, soft off-white head. Sweet fruity nose, belgian yeast esters, tropical fruits and coriander. Sweet fruity malts up front, dried pineapple flavor, softer in the finish, more coriander comes through. Not as dry as most, but a solid beer.

Deep amber with a quickly dissapating off white head. Aroma is very fruity, pear, apricots, and strong yeast also, reminds me of my car air freshener. Taste is somewhat fruity, not as much as the aroma, bubblegum, yeast, light brown sugar. Pretty good stuff. chokmah33 (118) - San Luis Obispo, California, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Aromas of white pear, finger nail polish remover, and herbal smell, like dry grass. That sweet yeasty Belgian musk, plus the coriander.
Texture is creamy then gets sticky at the end. Palate is crisp, slightly astringent.
Tastes like orange candy and some significant malts. Enough hops to throw some bitter into the mid and finish
You can taste the coriander most in the finish.
A Significantly Spicey Belgian.
