Hazy golden beer with a big, rocky, white head. Quite a bit of lacing ended up on the glass. Light fruit and spice in the nose, quite sweet with some alcohol. Flavour is sweet up front with some pear. Light bitterness that leads into a medium dry finish that has some pepperiness and alcohol warmth at the end. Texture is a bit creamy, medium body, carbonation on the lower side.

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: light golden hue, good clarity, poor head development from this sample

Aroma: sweetly malty, lemon zest, clove, wheat, grain, strawberry fruitiness, touch of light caramel, Belgian hops

Flavor: a grainy flavor surrounding a light maltiness, slightly spicey from the yeast character, finish is slightly dry with a clean aftertaste, a touch of hop flavor and bitterness

Mouthfeel: medium-light body, some alcohol warmth, terse carbonation

Overall Impression: Tasted this beer at the '03 Belgian Beer Weekend and I liked it quite a bit. However, this sampling wasn't as good as I remembered it. And I seem to remember a nice layer of head on the first one. Even so, a nice little beer.

I had a 750ml bottle of this at home, first day off for the holidays. It poured a cloudy amber color into a chimay glass. Not a lot of head, but yeast immediately seen floating around.

A strong fruity taste, really enjoyed the sensation on the tongue. Fairly strong hops for a Belgian beer, and they come through really well.

Felt good in the mouth, not too light, with just the right carbonation. I really enjoyed this one.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: silvery-gold hue with a light haze and a very active effervescence. Head poured three fingers of frothy white foam which dissipates somewhat rapidly.

Smell: nice light, sweet malt with hints of orchard fruitiness which are whimsical and refreshing. Just what I like in a BSPA or tripel.

Taste: sweet malt with a lightness and more of the subtle orchard fruit flavors from the aroma. I find it highly satisfying, refreshing and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and bodacious creaminess. Very near perfect; this is exactly what I want out of a beer like this.

Overall: a very tasty and extremely enjoyable beer. This sort of thing is precisely to my taste. I love it.
