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.

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.

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.

Pours golden. Big body for such a beer. Nice light crisp taste. Good malt and hop balance. Good stuff for the style.

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.

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.

53.5 F 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.

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.
