Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. Ordinary aroma and flavor of coriander, citrus and yeast, feels a lot like a boring tripel. The palate is light and creamy and the carbonation is lively. It’s not very entertaining.

JayBaxter (407) - Greater Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2006
Very pale hazey yellow with a sweet fruity (mango not citrus) aroma. Flavour is maltier than its colour would have you believe and alcohol is there in the finish.

jonas (6099) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2006
Light golden amber, fine pearling carbonation, big fluffy lacing head. Tropical fruit and mineralic yeast aroma. Harsh phenolic entry, fermented fruit, chocolaty notes , earthy mineralic, spicy. Strikes me as unharmonic. Velvety mouthfeel, light pearling. Old fruit aftertaste. Now this was disappointing.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2005
33 cl bottle. Yeast in bottom. Golden colour with a fizzy lance head. Aroma of alcohol, spice and some yeast. Flavour of spice and malt that ends in a warm alcoholic finish.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2005
Another from my escipades in belgium(2002). Aroma is apricots and some sort of sweetish funkiness, though not that bad. Taste is orange peel with spices and a sweetish finish, with alcohol having a wee say all though the beer. Not bad maybe needs more aging or needs to be drunk fresh, but have nothing to compare with.

thebeertourist (5094) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 Yellow colour emerging from below the huge white Duvel-like head. Delicious spicy and green apples aroma. Also yeasty. Flavour starts with soft malty sweetness, gradually drying up to a finish with yeasty notes.Very fizzy. It looks like a Duvel, but it tastes more like a confused blond,. The alcoholic warmth reveals its strength, though.
