The first time I drank this beer I laughed so much I thought it might be laced. This beer is great if you want to have a good time. Very fruity, wheat taste with good carbonation and delicious after taste.

I love most Belgians, but this one missed the mark for me.

This aromatic golden-colored Belgian is among my all-time favorite beers. Wondrously fruity, fantastic and full of fine yeast. Goes down the drain with ridiculously ease. Well worth the above-average price you'll likely find it for.

Enjoyed on tap at Craft Beer Market. This was, to me, the champagne of beer. Effervescent and bright, it smelled of clove and Pink Popcorn. I found the taste to be full of the fruit flavor one would expect from Belgian yeast. DT has a lively mouthfeel - this is a unique beer, indeed!

Split a bottle with the wife, both into tulip glasses. My pour gave me a good inches of fluffy, cloud-like snow colored head. My wife prefers almost no head (sad trombone) so I take it slow with her pour, not leaving the angle till I'm done. Still produced a finger or two of head. Foam settles to a one finger thick cap.
Pours a bright gold with tinges of orange. Some carbonation, and lots of little yeasty floaties. Eh, it's good for you.
Aroma is Belgian, through and through. Sweet sugar, banana, clove. Some crusty bread.
Taste is fantastic, and follows the nose, with some sweet citrus. Nothing bitter in this pale ale, all smooth and sweet.
Damn, I love Belgians.

Great ale, only thing I can say is to warn someone new to the style that yeast "snow" while unattractive, isn't going to hurt you. Drink up!

Very fruity (Grapefruit, Citrus and Orange). Great mouth feel with a medium/dry finish. A taste that keeps you wanting more.
