Sampled in a 16oz Pint at the Stumbling Monk Tavern (Seattle, WA)

Hazy orange with a trong white head with a few large big bubbles.

Coriander spicy scent with a sweet orange peel aroma.

Initial body is thick spicy and sweet with a quick drop to a dry spicy and watery finish.

Serving type - Bottle into goblet

A - Pours a transparent, slightly darker golden hue, with minimal head and lacing. Visible yeast.

S - Smell is of pears and belgian candi sugars.

T - Taste is of pears and light belgian candi sugar up front, with just a hint of hops at the end for balance. Not a powerful or assertive flavor profile, just light and refreshing.

M - Light/Medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Pretty basic.

D - The light body and low ABV make it a session-friendly Belgian-style pale.

Overall - This is more of a light, refreshing take on a belgian-style golden ale. Those looking for a big, complex flavor profile like it's bigger brethren are best looking elsewhere. Those looking for a light, sesssionable ale with Belgian-like flavors will enjoy this.

Reminds me of La Find de Monde.

Poured from a standard 12oz bottle in a large wine glass. There wasn't as much head as a was expecting and it left minimal lacing. Nose was nice, fruity like bananas and pears with some esters in the background. Taste is good and the fruity bananas come right through. Mouthfeel is medium but the carbonation is a bit finer than it should be. Overall this is a good beer from Dicks that I would recommend.

cheers

This beer pours a nice golden color with a white head with belgian lace on the side of the glass. Smell is very faint but is spicy with fruity esters. This beer has an odd taste to it, a bit spicy, fruity but a bit sour. Not exactly what I expect from a "Belgian Golden" as the label claims. Mouthfeel is good, with decent carbonation. Not a very drinkable beer and not one of my favorites.

Pours a golden color with good head. Foam resides quickly with no lacing.

Smell a little hoppy, nothing else.

Tastes of cloves with a very mild hop finish.

Above average carbonation with nice silky finish.

This might be good for awhile but I think I would grow tired of the cloves.

I tasted this beer for the first time last night and had to review it quickly as a warning to all to NEVER, EVER DRINK THIS HORRIBLE ABOMINATION OF A LIBATION.
To start with, it smells awful. Well, awful for a beer. If it were bubblegum, it would get high marks.
When I first sipped this beer, I started laughing. I told my friend it tasted like banana cream pie. He tasted and agreed. The third taster went further, hitting the nail on the head - he described it as liquid banana flavored Laffy Taffy.
Truly disappointing because I like Dick's other offerings. They clearly don't know Belgium from bubblegum though. Might make an interesting alternative to Zima.
