I enjoyed this one. It was golden, opaque in color with little head and some lace. The aroma gave off a little banana with some citrus. The taste was midly fruity upfront, followed by a nice touch of hop and yeast throughout the end. The finish was smooth with no overpowering from any part of the beer. I would definitely have this again.

Aroma is pineapple juice, very perfumed/slightly off and slight sweetness. The flavor is pineapple/pineapple juice, tropical fruit/fruit, pale malts, Belgian yeast and an alcoholic/warming finish.

Good friend brought a growler to the weekly hot dog fest. While I am not a Belgian fan..this was a solid beer and would recommend it. The beer poured a clear golden with thin no head and no lace. The scent carries typical Belgian flare with coriander spice. The taste is also typical of most Belgians but this is very well balanced with decent spice. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall the beer is solid for any Belgian fan.
