Bottle. A gift from a trip to Belgium. Cloudy orange color with a foamy white head. A light fruit, apple, citrus, and bubble gum aroma. A dry and spicy flavor.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2004
Draught

The beer pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow color with a smallish bright white head that is semi-creamy in texture, and the lace a rather thin veil to conceal the glass. Nose is somewhat sweet, orange peel and coriander along with a strong scent of yeast, citrus like crispness, start is sweet and sour, mild malt profile with a rather slender feel to the top. finish is persistent in its a acidity, the hops forthright and the aftertaste somewhat bitter, dry a bleached desert bone, a fair to middling beer, certainly not the best beer I've ever had from Belgium, but then not the worst either.

rauchbier (3665) - 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 (16427) - 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 (1171) - 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.
