Beerdedone (3366) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a fluffy white head that left minimal lacing. Hoppy earthy floral aroma with pine, fruit and belgian yeast. Flavor was sweet malts, yeast, light pine, citrus, fruit and a bit of caramel with a smooth medium body. Overall a very good brew.

jzzbassman (1588) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottled. Hazy golden pour with a large white head. Aroma of lemon rind, pepper, and baking bread. Very fruit, with melon and citric tartness, carried on lively carbonation.

dumontn (530) - St. Joseph, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Pours light slightly hazy gold with massive 4 finger head and artful lacing. Aroma is grass, hay, lemon peel, citric tartness, and spice. Taste is lemon peel, spice, hay, then a tart/lightly bitter finish. Body is light, oily, highly effervescent, long tangy bitter finish, not a hint of 8.5%abv. Overall, delicious and champagne-like; a great value at $10 a bottle and definetly something I would seek again.

blipp (8879) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Resinous and spicy aroma, with peppery and piney notes. The flavor has resinous piney notes, fruity esters, and peppery notes. Good stuff.

dagimp (993) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2011
From a 750ml bottle into a Victory snifter. Pours with a TON of fluffy white head. Little to no lacing but a tiny bit of foam on the top. Really beautiful golden hue. Just as a Belgian Golden should be. Aromas of alcohol, flowers and Tang. Mouthfeel is very moderate, if a bit over carbonated. Letting it sit for a while really helps out and brings out the flavor. Tastes of alcohol, funk, lemon, flowers, hops and chalk. A really solid beer. I like it and Ill probably buy it again.

Oakes (16949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
On tap at Najas. Hazy blonde. Some light pear esters and spicy hops on the nose. Light spicy palate with some sweet, pineapple/pear accents. Not bad, but not worth passing up a Duvel for or anything like that.

onceblind (8892) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2011
On tap at Vine Street brewpub. Clear brilliant gold. Beautiful aroma of candy sugar, pineapple juice and apricot, with some sweet Belgian yeast. Excellent. Smooth, rich, yeasty and complex. Starts sharp and bitter but quickly mellows into a sweet and malty brew. Vibrant fruity yeastiness as on the nose--apricot and a touch of pineapple. Aint no wrong in this brew!woody,

Nickls (2498) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Tap. Fluffy, foamy white head on a clearer orangeish yellow with lots of tiny rising carbonation bubbles. Earthy hops and lots of yeastiness and light passion fruits in the aroma. Yeasty and a bit of bittersweet sour fruits with a touch of hay-like hop in the finish. Slick medium body with softer carbonation.

brigg (662) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2011
(bottle) Big fluffy white head atop a foggy golden body. Aroma of grain, yeast, banana, pear; mild hops, orange. Light bodied, very carbonaceous. Crips, refreshing citrus orange peel, yeast, grass and pine hops. Crips and light--makes me wish I were drinking this outside on a beautiful, sunny day.

larryLSB (527) - La Selva Beach, California, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Poured from 750, cloudy golden with slight hue of orange, huge white head. Fruity nose, little bready with floral hints. Hoppy for a belgian. Great aroma, taste was smooth, on the sweeter side. Nice lively, medium to full bodied. Thoroughly enjoyable beer.
