This is a nice little surprise. Aroma is of vanilla, spice, and citrus fruit. Appearance is cloudy yellow. To me this is very similar to a German pilsner in many ways. Flavor is slightly sour. Tastes of oranges, lemons and pears with a creamy mouthfeel. It was only $1 a bottle, so I will be back to pick up more! BrianO (138) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Lite golden color with tiny white head. Appearance is very clear with few lines of bubbles rising from the depths of the glass. Aroma is spices, yeasty, with a tinge of alcohol and lemon.
Mouthfeel is foamy/bubbly.
Slightly dry finish with hints of spices - maybe paradise or correander? Nice easy drinking Belgian Ale. Hopistotle420 (1177) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2003
Peachy yeast nose. Frothy white nose. Very effervescent. Hazy straw/peach hue. Very wit like. Very citric, light to medium velvety body. Seductive mouthfeel. Yeast, lemon, herbal, very drinkable. Refreshing, complex and very well balanced. A superb beer in my humble opinion. JPDIPSO (6286) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Lightly hazed straw color with a full white foamy head. Citric peach, with only a hint of herbal spice aroma. Dry malt start with a true lambic finish. In between there are light fruits and farm yeasts. More yeast qualities in this than some other wits. Light sweetness with malt, followed by a bite of hops and yeast acidity. Really nice amlt backbone. goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Pours a lightly cloudy golden orange, with a huge rocky white head that is sturdy and lasting, lacing nicely. Aroma is yeasty, apple, peach, slightly spicy, and some grassiness. Flavor is apple, some sourness, lemon zest, tart, acidic, and quite dry. Medium body, fairly bubbly carbonation.

light yellow color with a white head; aroma of yeast and hops; sour taste with a bit of lemon - the aftertaste isn't bad, but the initial taste isi too bitter and sour egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2003
Poured a cloudy, lemon yellow color with a large firm white head and nice lacing. Aroma of yeast, spice, and even some hops in there as well. Slightly sour lemon taste as well as other citrus flavors. Very smooth, crisp finish. ericnixon (745) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2003
What's up with the lonely monk drinking on the bottle? Looks kinda surley on second look. anyways, there are big chunks on the bottom with tiny fine bubbles, much like a champagne. oh yeah. Huge mouth presence. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Fruity aroma with presence of Belgian yeast,spicy/bready. Fine bubbles,incredible mouthfeel.Tart,acidic with nortes of lemon and citrus. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Good looking label. Big caramel with light flowers in the nose lead you to believe the taste will be much sweeter than it is. Flavor is light caramel up front with flowery hops coming in and then sourness finishing it off. I love the restraint of the sweetness, but would prefer more of the great hop flavor than the sourness. I know I'm probably supposed to appreciate the latter more, but I don't. Unlike the others I do not think the sourness is very interesting--just sour.
