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.

Amber golden color. A lot of floating bodies. Head: few, and quickly falling to just a veil.
Smell of orange, alcohol, yeast. Some spicy (pepper), honey and flower. The alcohol impression, after some while, falls down.
At the taste is vert slipping. Malt and honey in the start, citric and orange. Nothing remarkable.
Not so much body, well carbonated, aftertaste with the same notes, but nothing remarkable, again. Maybe some flowers and hops.

An acceptable Belgium. Yeast and sugar. Sweet syrup sugar at the start, with a long yeasty finish. Dry aftertaste. Hard carbonation on tongue. Yeast and floral aroma, nothing too strong. Medium mouthfeel. Alcohol kicks in, and is masked by the sugar. Smokless Joe's has the dedicated mug . A little more appreciated in bottle had 7 years later.

Best before 24-06-05. Poors in nicly givving a nice head that lasts and leaves nice laces at the glas. Futher an opalizing golden beecolor. Nose is quiet flat( maybe cause of age) having some malts but lots of esters giving it a fruity nose and a hint of hoparome. Overal not 100% fresh though. Taste is quiet dull too having some malttaste, quiet sweet, alcoholic and then going into a moderate but litle hanging bitterness. Lots of carbonisation makes mouthfeel more lively and litle better then taste but one was enough for me. No bad beer though.

Pours a hazy golden into its distinctive frosted glass which makes in a little difficult to rate its appearance. Floral aroma, passion fruit, nice dessert smell. Taste was a lot of piney hops, and some fruit. Mouthfeel was crisp from the hops, yet still quite smooth, quite a duality. I had had a few too many by the time I had this, so I would like to try it again just to make sure my notes are correct.

The beer disembarks the 330ml brown bottle a slightly hazy lemon yellow color with a middling sized semi-creamy bright white head and as it evaporates, the resultant lace forms a thin velum like sheet to surround the glass. Nose is fruity, nice malt, crisp and clean to the senses with the start ambrosial, light malt presence and the top thin. Finish has a benign acidity, the hops delicate upon the palate, dry lingering aftertaste, a nice light way to end the day.

4.06/5  rDev +15.3%
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.
