Bottle. 7%. Pours a golden/copper colour with a fair bit of head. Aroma of crackers with nutmeg. Taste is bread and yeasty with toffee. Finishes with a bit too much raw alcohol and lots of spice. There’s a certain soapiness that builds up by the end of the bottle too.

BeerNinjaUK (51) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours cloudy medium amber with deep bright white head that retains well. The bottle is printed with the age, which in this case is just over six months. Aroma is weak wheat and toast. Taste is much richer - bags of wheat, some acidic tang and thin mouthfeel.

LazyPyro (178) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2015
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy orange colour with a huge frothy white head, good lacing. Aroma is malty, yeast and some spices. Flavour is fruity malts and spices, yeast, some bitterness in the finish and the alcohol is quite evident.

ciocanelu (354) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 5, 2015
Golden color with white head. Aroma has a yeasty banana note and some brown sugar. Taste has also yeast notes like bubblegum, overripe fruits and some sugar sweetness. Body is medium with high carbonation. Overall it’s a well made Belgian ale but nothing really special.

Smithld1 (75) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle cellar release June 2013. Not my type of beer to be honest. I wanted to see if it aged better but it doesn’t. Pretty sour and yeasty. Pretty mellow finish but clovey aftertaste. Good head and lacing.

Cimbasso (491) - - OCT 27, 2015
Golden colour with a frothy white head. Bready, spicy aroma and a taste of banana bread, oranges and cloves. Very full mouthfeel and a powerful alcohol hit at the end. A nice Belgian Blonde.

Holmen1 (3929) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2015
Flaske fra Waitrose, Finchley, delt med Steven: klar gylden med fint skum. Aroma og smak av mandarin, appelsinmarmelade og kandissukker. Varmende munn- og magefølelse, ganske slank for sin voltstyrke. Fint avstemt bitterhet holder sødmen på plass og gir mersmak.

lello4ever (335) - ITALY - OCT 21, 2015
Una buona ale, dorata, aroma di lievito con qualche nota citrica, al palato un leggero amaro, molto pulita.

Bottled@SBWF2015. Yellowish golden colour, mediumsized creamy white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, some slight spiciness as well as some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is quite similar, but also has some mild yeast to it. A bit thin palate, even though it’s got quite much alcohol to it.
Earlier Rating: 9/17/2006 Total Score: 2.7
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is citric fruity and a bit yeast. Flavour is citrus, sweet malts, caramel and alcohol. Unbalanced and too sweet in my opinion. Some slight hints of spices also.
Earlier Rating: 9/3/2006 Total Score: 3.6
