12oz bottle: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with nice malty sweetness and doughy yeast with a touch of clove before a slightly drier and smooth finish. True to style and enjoyable.

Aroma is yeasty with hints of clove and banana. Pours hazy golden color with a decent head, but it fades quickly. Taste is malty with earthy undertones and also clove and banana flavors with a crisp, dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is fairly strong, fruity and yeasty with floral and malt undertones. It pours a clear solar yellow with a thick white head that dissipates rather quickly. Smooth flavor is malty and mellow with a floral undertone and a nice fruity hint that is mainly pear. Texture is smooth, a little thick, and rather fizzy. Pretty good!

bottle - Pours clear gold with a fast-fading white head. It has a yeasty, fruity aroma. The flavor is sweet with esters and a pleasant fruit character leading into a somewhat dry finish. It’s medium bodied and very enjoyable.

Bottle pour. Pours a light golden color with a nice lemon spice aroma. A little coriander maybe too. Fizzy white head all throughout. Really mild flavored Belgian ale, but really nice refreshing flavor. Nice, easy drinking beer. Finishes with just the right amount of pepper spice. Tasty beer.
