I had this beer at the brewpub, review is from notes:

Has a transparent light golden color to it. No head when it arrived, a few bubbles rise to the top. Lacing is minimal. Aroma is of sweet bready yeast and honey. Flavor has more spices to it with coriander, clove, and Belgian candi sugars. Lots of honey taste in there as well. Almost like what I would think a light mead would taste like. Belgian yeast is evident but doesn't counteract the sweetness enough. This beer has Belgian elements in it, but its simply too sweet to enjoy much of it. There needs to be something to offset the sweetness. Decent at best.

Pours a murky golden-hoeny color. No head to speak of but carbonation evident.
Aroma is very light and vacant. Light yeast, coriander, light spice and bread crust were all that was detected.
Flavor is sweet pale malt, candy sugar, Juicy Fruit gum with no apparent bitterness. Very pleasant taste.
Mouthfeel is not quite as lively or effervescent as I expect from a Belgian style.
Drinkability was somewhat hampered by the fact that the beer was served way too cold for style.
Good beer not great.
