rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2004
Bottle conditioned. Gold, moderate rocky white head, and good condition. Good honey aromas mixed with Pilsen like hops. More honey sweetness in the mouth, delicate hop flavour and a good yeastiness. Dry and pleasantly hop bitter in the finish, slight soapiness developing towards the end.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2003
Hazy golden color; creamy head. Nice malty aroma; mature. Quite smooth, malty; dryer at the end, well balanced by the bitterness, but a light metallic note.

OKBeer (1170) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 12, 2003
Pale gold colour with a rocky and frothy white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, similar but not as enticing as Fin du Monde. Medium bodied to go with a citrus fruity and yeasty flavour.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
Straw color with loosely forming head, low carbonation levels for a belgian. Head retention is average. Similar to straffe Hendrik blonde but not as dry. Good solid little blond belgian ale with some subdued belgian fruitiness and a slight residual sweetness.

Good beer, although in my opinion there are better beers. Surely try this once when you compare i t to Barbar.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2003
Blond beer with a big white head. Fruit, wood, yeast and hop aroma. The taste is yeast, wood and maybe a tiny bit of citrus. Dry, slightly bitter finish.

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2003
I thought this was babar the king of the elephants. A mixture of alot of stuff that combines to taste like something i needent have again. This was a beer yeast infection, with a few citrus spots that do little to salvage. Unimpressive compared to all of the other brews I had at lucky baldwins.

I couldn't really rate the appearance because the beer was in a pot. Aroma of citrus. Taste is a little hoppy, some citrus, a little spicy.
