3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Local "hidden" liquor store had a bunch of dusty bottles selling for $1.99, so I had to grab a couple. I popped the top and poured the entire ale into a Chimay glass. The head leapt up and continued to grow, but it never slid over the side of the glass. I poured the final bit slowly which created a cinnamon swirl ontop of the thick foam. Body is a hazy light brown with strong citrus and yeast aroma. Taste is malty sweet – honey, apple and light citrus.

Bottle. Cloudy golden-straw with very large head (as other caulier beers). Malt, hay, herbs, yeast, quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange-yellow. Big thick long lasting foam. Aroma starts strong out of the bottle but is not quite as big from the glass. Spice and yeast combine in a tasty aroma either way. Medium bodied and spritzy. Very enjoyable. Alcohol is well hidden. Flavour is spice, fruit, a little pine and a touch of alcohol. Sweetness grows through the bottle becoming a trifle strong. Almost like a session Belgian Blonde but the ABV nixes that idea.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2005 (Bottled) Opaque orange-yellow color with a medium, foamy head and lace. Dryish, spicy aroma with lots of red currant and some apple and pear. Fruity and yeasty, slightly alcoholic flavor with berries and a bitter, acidic finish. Medium-bodied, a bit sweet and oily, very foamy-carbonated palate. A decent blonde with a bit too much alcohol and carbonation. Gets quite a bit softer with yeast.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Very hazy, pale golden beer with lots of yeast and a huge head. Quite dry with some warming alcohol. Also quite high in carbonation. More dry than bitter. Not a top-class Blonde ale. actually a bit ordinary. Disappointing considering Caulier’s normal high standards. 030601

Huge white head the aroma is malty and a bit hoppy. Flavor is sweet, lightly bitter. And a not so good bitter aftertaste. The alcohol is noticeable. Not a very good beer. (Bottle 33cl)

Nice golden cloudy tan color, very good head with lacing thoughout the glass. Smells spicy with hints of citrus. Taste is bold and a bit alcoholic through the finish. Nice belly warm afterthoughts.

(swing top bottle) Pale and hazy blond body with a huge rocky white head. Citric nose with peppery spice. Lively carbonated, medium bodied. Slightly sour citrus-fruity taste with a spicy finish. A bit too alcoholic for my taste.
