UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 This beer is gross. It has some weird flavor going on. Either bad yeast or bad hops. Tastes like some type of nasty potpourri. DrnkMcDermott (3096) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2010 Bottled. U.S. Beer #19 of 31 for American Beer Month! Bottle is at least four years old, so let’s see how it holds up: Pours a bright yellow beneath a frothy/spongy head. Odor of juicy fruit pervades shortly after I open the bottle. Taste is thin and just a little bit dry.There is a pretty notable alcohol component that’s expected of an older beer. Well, I held on to it for quite a while, thinking it would age nicely, but it may have not been the proper beer for cellaring. Slightly stale hop taste that might be okay for the style. My rating is a little bit kinder because of its age. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Clear, pale gold appearance with a tiny head and light lacing. Yeasty, soft fruit, sweet aroma. Bittersweet taste that turns a little more spicy toward the finish. Well carbonated, medium-bodied mouthfeel with a long, slightly dry, finish. BennyTicklez (621) - USA - MAY 16, 2005
Pours golden. Big body for such a beer. Nice light crisp taste. Good malt and hop balance. Good stuff for the style. raymow (1602) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2005
Excellent - one of the best beers that I’ve tried in a while. It reminded me a little of a Belgian brew which was unexpected. Highly recommended.

Glowing golden, slightly hazy with wee bit ’o head. Mild nose with a twitching sensation of Belgian spice-osity. A prickly cusion of carbonation lends much needed crispness along with a healthy dose of bitterness in the finish. Flavor is very mild almost to the point of being watery. Still, this is a highly quaffable belgian--not a common thing. movolsfan (11) - Parkville, Missouri, USA - JAN 5, 2005
My biggest complaint about this beer was how much head there was. When I popped the bottle, foam came roaring out of the top of the bottle. At first I thought it was a fluke, but that happened with all 6. Pouring this was next to impossible, this beer produced a lot of foam. Added to that, the taste was average at best.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2005 This is a pretty sweet drink in both aroma and taste. It pours a clear golden color with a whispy white head that parts soon after its into. The taste is lightly sweet malted with gobs of yeasty fruitiness. The finish is a bit sweet and syrupy. I was surprized to see that this was supposed to be a "Belgian ale" style.gabbledbabble (60) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 11, 2004

Lustrous golden -- the color of cooked butternut squash, or maybe golden roasted chicken skin. Bawk, bawk, big yeast floaters.
Exploding head, large bubbles, 2 fingers. HOlds its heighth for awhile.
Aroma of detergent with orange zest. Opens bright like an open window on a crisp day. Pale malt. Fresh yeast starter made with a starchy flour like semolina, or whole wheat pastry flour.
Layer of crisp citrus; orange and lime. Chewy grains flash roasted. A great gulper -- I finished that bottle in 30 seconds, or so. Quaf, quaf, it would go great with duck, or goose and roasted roots and tubers, and green beans and almonds. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Orange. Well orchestated aroma of butter toffee, burnt corn, peaches, spicy and grassy hops along with some grainy and cereal like malts. This tastes like a prairie. Dry, grainy, husky malts put forth notes of caramel, medicine and light fruit. The hops shine through the most here. They are herbal, grassy, quite spicy and not a pleasing combo, for me anyway. Not offensive.
