look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Beautiful. Deep golden color tending slightly towards orange. Strings of bubbles. Foamy, good 2 fingers when pouring, but loses the foam pretty quickly. It's not very thick but airy.

Smell: Sweet, honeylike and malty. Somewhat fruity. Banana and ripe pear.

Taste: Very sweet, honey and fruit like taste, followed by a light bitter and malty flavor. Long lasting taste, from sweet to malt to a light bitter.

Mouthfeel: Tingling fizz gives it a fresh touch. It has a semi thick feel giving it a little more body. But it leaves a bit of a slimy effect in the mouth.

Overall: It's probably not the most exciting beer out there, nor is it my favorite one. But it's a beer i can easily drink any day. It's very easygoing with a full, sweet and maltiness flavor with a light bitter to give it some more depth and balance. It's the sweetness that's leading though. The biggest problem might be it's too full tasting to be a refreshing beer, and lacks depth to make it a really interesting one. But very enjoyable and easy to drink nonetheless.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Been a while since i tried this but i thought why not give it a shot and pours a clear golden sunset hue which leaves a creamy three finger head and lacing all over the place,the smell is spicy cloves,bready yeast,a touch of bananna and fresh peaches,the mouthfeel is light bodied and lighter than i expected but easy enough to knock back and has tastes of bready belgian yeast,cloves,herbal eartrhy hops and finished with that bready belgian yeast that dominates and overall the vieux temps yeast used definately dominates and its abit sweet for me but an easy enough session brew.
