thewolf (11589) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2006
Pours yellow-orange with thin white head and lots of bubbles. Aroma is sweet with malty tones dominating, but lemon and some oranges spill through. Taste is complex, with fruit and malty tones combining. It even has a slight bitterness in its quite long aftertaste.

Lubiere (11373) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2010
A golden ale with a thin white head. Aroma of red licorice, malt, some orange peels. In mouth, a sweet cloying malt, rather light bodied, some light orange, harsh alcohol. Not very good. 1.89 euro for a 750 mL bottle at Galeries Gourmandes (Auchan) in l’Atrium du Palais des Congrès.

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2009
Grande bouteille (de Quack-Duck!): Golden, a bit unclear, lacy white foamy layer; sweet grainy-bisquity nose, traces of marzipan included; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; light to moderate sweet-bitter finish with marzipan and a little tartness in the finish. Quite O.K., but not really convincing.......

shrubber85 (9287) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Corked bottle. Light malt and musty hay hops. Clear golden color with giant off white head. Very light malt and moderately bitter grass hops flavor. Body on the light side. Like what’s here, just wish there was more of it.

rosenbergh (8864) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
750 ml bottle. From France. Courtesy of Brandman. Clear deep golden colour with small white head. Sweet almondy malty aroma. Flavour is also quite sweet with almond, and malt. Rather unpleasant. No good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
