look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz. bottle, no apparent bottling information. Poured into a Firestone Walker pint glass.
A - Pours a gigantic four fingers of head, on a fizzing cloudy pale golden colored body. Looks almost lager-like in color, but with an enormous fizzing doughy fluffy head with excellent retention. A little bit of spotty lacing on the sides.
S - Can definitely smell the Cascade hops that went into this. Very fruity. Pineapple smell for sure.
T - Hops are still apparent, but are thrown into the background by the Belgian yeasts and malts. Still very fruity tasting, nonetheless. Carbonated, but not overly so.
M - Dry feel. Slightly sticky with some green apple sugar taste lingering around in the background. Perhaps a tad bit too carbonated for my liking, but not distracting.
Overall, a nicely balanced beer. Simple, yet moderate and highly drinkable with a nice 6.2% abv. Not a personal favorite, but definitely worth trying.

Tasted July 25th 2011 (from notes)
Poured into a la Chouffe tulip
A - golden/brass, two finger off white creamy and some lacing
S - tons of sweet yeast, flowers, a bit sour, nice wheat and tons of fresh fruit
T - exactly the same, not even kidding. The smell was the taste and the taste was the smell. I don't believe I have run into this to many times.
M- Medium plus body, simple balance, simple complexity, medium minus acidity and a lovely easy to drink finish
D/O- Very well rounded, easy to drink, thirst quenching, hell of a beer!
Final thoughts - Easy to drink 6.2% abv, lovely and refreshing
