ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2006
Deep amber with a light head; lots of spiced banana in the aroma, some clove, orange and yeast; biscuity and malty with a dry finish; some metallic hops; a little grainy and pretty thin. This actually has quite a bit of flavor, though not alot of complexity, for being so thin (palate) and weak (alcohol); Belgian-style Lite?!

Bottle poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of strae, yeast, pear, light pineapple and light spice. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, light spice and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth dry finish.

Draught at Papago Brewing Co., Scottsdale, AZ
Deep blond color. Its a simple one, with very light aroma, but the flavor has some of the Belgian spiciness, and correct bitterness.

Strykzone (7254) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2007
Pours a nice honey gold color with a big active white head. Plenty of carbonation. Aroma is clove and spice. Flavors go along with the aroma and are much more in line with a hefeweizen. Hops are deep underneath the clove and honey. Nice oily lacing on the glass.

hopscotch (11024) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Bottle (2003 or 2004) ... Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, tissue paper-like, white head. Good retention. Estery, phenolic, yeasty aroma dictates fruitcake, cinnamon, biscuit, clove, apple, pear, coriander and honey notes. Medium-bodied with an extremely drying mouthfeel. Fruity flavor is very low on residual sweetness and, but offers a tempered bitterness. Citric and moderately tart with a grassy note of clover. Tangy, Sahara-dry finish sucks all the moisture from my head. Over attenuated? Strange, interesting brew! Kudos go out to maniac for shipping the bottle my way!

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Rather basic Belgian with, as they say, banana and honey flavors. No new ground broken here, but this one might have a little more depth than the typical American attempt at the style.
