A: Pale gold, clear with small head but very pretty lacing. Poured into Leffe chalice.

S: Caramelized malt

T: Strong caramel, balanced hops provide good balance. Opulent dark notesevoke tasted birch and caramelized candi sugar.

M: Low attenuation, low carbonation provides a slow sipping experience.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a very pale, very clear light golden color. Fairly low carbonation. About 1/4" white head forms, which has low retention and lacing.

Smell: A bit of pale malt peeks through, with Belgian yeast, citrus, and spice.

Taste: Pale malts, Belgian yeast, with some citrus and spice. Some light florals on back end as well.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied with low carbonation; a bit prickly. Overall, drinkable as hell and pretty tasty. Goes well with Greek food.

Drank from my Duvel tulip

A - Poured a nice golden colour with frothy white two fingered head and good lacing

S - Banana, apples with clove and spice

T - Quite spicey initially but with the banana and bready malts which balance nicely with the slightly hoppy finish

M - Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation

O - A very nice beer which although lacks a little in flavour intensity up front, I very much like the balanced finish. An easy drinking beer that goes down well.

Crystal clear golden colored with a massive sticky white head, excellent retention. Herbal aroma. Smells like one of those health food stores that sales all of the herbs and stuff. Sweet flavored, almost too much so. Hint of bananna and some herbal flavors. Medicinal finish. Thick sticky mouthfeel. Overall good beer just not one of the top beers of the style. Good to have when there's nothing else better.

Felt like a Beligan beer and the local corner store has it in stock.

A: uh oh. Where's the yeast? Looks like this beer has been filtered. Looks like a lager

smell: weak banans, hint of figs

taste: just not as good as it should be. I dunno, malts?

mouthfeel: just way to weak. Almost a Stella like harshness

overall: frankly this beer is poop. I won't get this again.
