Pours hazy orange, small head with nice lacing. Aromas of belgian malt, orange peel, coriander pretty strong, with a backbone of nice breadiness and citric fruitiness. Taste is somewhat sweet, a hint of acid, with a clean, spicy finish. Quite good grand cru.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cool beer pour - hazy amber sits above crystal clear gold with a giant frothy head. Lacing is thick and copious. Big coriander and black pepper nose atop dried apricots. Very sweet and lightly sour flavor (reminds me of those light-orange/pink packets of sweet and sour sauce you get with Chinese take-out) with a dry, pepper and vanilla cookie finish. Finish picks up in husky graininess the longer you sit. Frothy, full mouthfeel with mild-to-moderate, fine carbonation. Actually very satisfying. Iím pleased with this random pick off of the shelves.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy bronze body with an off white head thatís mildly explosive probably shouldnít have used a pint for this. Has that lush tart and sweet grainy grand cru yeast tones that is reminiscent of the abbey des rocs, very nice with mild sour apples and and bread y spiced cinnamon tones. Sweet with apple and then quickly drying with spices and a mild warming. More bread and spicy yeast tones, and a mild lingering sweetness that almost has a menthol like aeration. Nice ale.

Had a bottle at Vintage in Philly. Pours a hazy amber with a very large white head. Head is rocky and long lasting, nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus and yeast, taste is tart. Medium body that has a nice sweet finish. Taste was consistent throughout the warmup.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange coloured beer with a nice, fluffy white head. Waw, very complex, fresh aroma. Taste is a bit disappointing, very thin body. A bit acidic, yeasty, sweet, ... but not even one flavour stands out. But nevertheless quite drinkable.Thereís a lot of contrast between the great aroma and the disappointing flavour. (Bottle 33cl)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ultra lively golden straw yellow with a sudsy large moderately dissipating white head. Aroma of toasted malt, apple, fruit and light yeast. Taste of fruit, alcohol, malt and mild spicy yeast. Palate is lively and itís a bit sticky. Not a huge fan of Belgian blondes as they tend to be a bit ho-hum and not as complex as every other Belgian style.
