Bottle. Pale orange/golden with big white head. Little hazy. Excellent head retention. Very good lacing. Fruity and nice, quite intense yeasty (mainly apricot) aroma. Taste is spicy - some ginger, pepper, malty, light bitterness, which is the most intense in the end of degustation. Light bodied, smooth texture, high carbonation, rather semi-dry, very refreshing.

Served in a Sloeber tulip glass.

I do so enjoy my Beer of the Month Club. This offering pours a hazy, rosy amber topped by a healthy helping of white foam. The nose comprises yeast, banana, flower petals, a vague spiciness, and what I can only describe as soapy carbon dioxide. It's hard to explain, really. The taste holds notes of ginger, flowers, banana, and a light hoppy bitterness. The body is light, with moderate carbonation and a refreshingly light feel. Overall, a good Belgian brew, but nothing Earth-shattering.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with some good retention and some nice lacing feature. Aroma consists of spicy yeast with some nice yeast ester also noticeable. Taste consists of some spices, some fruity ester and a nice dry Saaz hoppy finish. Body is about average with some good carbonation. I really enjoyed the hoppy finish and the refreshing aspect of this beer.

Best before jan-2006. Pours in wonderfull and creates a beautifull& huge white head in my tulip glass. Beercolor is pale gold and almost clear.
Fruit is the first you notice while bringing your nose to the glas. Apricot from yeast but also some hops in the bouqet together wit a moderate koreandersmell. Litle malts but overal fresh and fruity nose.
Taste is litle malty, dry and finishes litle bitter. Mouthfeel is light, only the quiet high carbonation make it litle fuller. Drinkability is more then ok and could easily do 3-4 in a row. Good beer.

Straw coloured, some turbidity, a lot of foam, thin, compact, creamy. Quite persistent.
At the smell: white flowers, honey, sweet (a little too much sweet), light caramel, even buttery.
At the taste the same: sweet-buttery notes, a touch of hop, not bittering, but something dried up.
The bitter is more present in the aftertaste.
A modest beer.
