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

Serves cloudy golden in Duvel tulip.
One finger head lingers.
Flowery, balanced, sweet wheat-like ale. Belgian yeast shines with a pleasant dominance.
I'm home from the restaurant where I had it and am still savoring the aftertaste.
Tempted to go back for a repeat performance.

Pours medium gold with a foamy white head. Splashy lace.

Tropical fruit, woody vanilla in the nose with some nice yeasty malt.

nice fruit/booze balance, with tropical notes and grain and booze and a little bitterness. Some vanilla and wood on the palate, light boozy bitter and fruity in the finish. Lovely brew. Very smooth.

Medium body, nice carbonation.

Nice version of the style. Highly drinkable and smooth.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served in a snifter (Rince Cochon signature glass).

Appearance: Gold, body is full of bubbles and head is ridiculously over-sized on the first pour that it is scary (thick). Head is white rising to a notch over two fingers length.

Smell: Mild yeast, it is good but nothing to wow over.

Taste: Alright this beer isn't complex like some other BSPA I have had, but it is rather tasty. Lightly sweet and feel of the yeast.

Mouth: Definitely medium to heavy, slightly creamy with a almost a marzen feel to it.

Overall: Not bad beer, I really can't knock on it I wasn't sure what to expect when I first purchased it. You should be able to find this for 10 or less at your local guy. Salud!

Had this on 2012-05-20 in Columbia, PA

A - Mostly clear yellow with a 1/2-finger white head. Mild lacing.

S - Belgian yeast, pear, green apple, light funk.

T - Pretty sweet, candied apple, powdered sugar and bready malt. Not much funk in the taste. Alcohol. Some bitterness comes it at the end to help things along.

M - Light body and heavy carbonation. Very effervescent.

O - It was really too sweet until having some sharp cheese with it. I think this brew is best with tangy food. I wouldn't seek it out as a standalone brew for my tastes.

750ml bottle split into two large snifters

Pours pretty clear straw yellow with a nice looking head and lots of carbonation. Head lasts a long time. Smell is Belgian, light and grassy, a little funk, a little sour.

Taste is creamy, slightly sour, some lemony flavor, little or no bitterness, slightly strawy. Maybe a little tiny bit of banana. Sweet.

Mouthfeel is creamy and airy, fluffy. Overall, nice beer.

Served from tap into a Trappe Door tulip. Poured golden yellow with a two finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, banana, fruit, and floral. The flavor was of sweet malt, banana, cream, fruit, floral, and subtle spices. It had a light feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. This was a quite refreshing and well balanced brew on the flavor. Granted the aroma left a little to be desired as there wasn’t a huge amount going on in it unfortunately. If it would have been a little more complex this could have been a pretty good brew. Even though the aroma wasn’t overly good, it should not stop you from trying it. Trust me, you need to give this one a try.

A pale golden, almost murky straw color. Pretty good head and lacing. A summer looking beer

Lemon zest aroma, some acetone and sweet bread.

The taste is a bit watered down. Up front there some strong flavors of lemon and hints of orange. The middle is lacking but not bad. This beer is a summer blond type of thing.

A good beer with salad or maybe some fruit sherbet.

750mL bottle into a tulip. Pours a clear golden color w/ a bright white fluffy head, sticky chunks of lace, steady carb.

Aroma is slightly grainy pale malt, Belgian yeast, subtle floral hops.

Taste is pale malt w/ a hint of crushed aspirin, some yeasty funk, green apple. Slightly unpleasant lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is a little prickly and sharp up front - lacks the smoothness of most bottle-conditioned beers.

Unfortunately this is a one and done for me.

A 750 ml bottle, corked. The pink pig makes me wonder if it is not made by the delirium bunch.

Poured a very light clear yellow with whipped egg white head. Lots of carbonated bubbles as well.

Nose is slightly fruity with hints of spice and hops.

Taste is fruity and sweet with a good dose of subtle Belgian hops. It could use a little more body, but I hate to discount it because this really is a crisp and refreshing beer. Alcohol is warming but not in your face. I like this beer. Not sure why the ratings are low.
