Light golden color with a small white head. The taste is sweet and artificial. Kind of watery.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2004
Sweet malt, butterscotch, pear and grape in the aroma. Orangeish brown color; thin white head. Moderatley sweet, with some oxidized cardboard like flavors, some light fruit as well, dissapointing.

[’04 PIBF] Clear blonde with some head and lacing. Sweet cucumber nose. Very sweet. Too sweet. Not my thing.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2007
What the...? Is this apple cider or a Belgian ale? That’s all I detected in this thick, sugary brew. And the particles suspended in the glass might be interesting but I found it a bit disturbing. Not my bag, baby.

Bottle: This beer pours a cloudy gold color with a white, fizzy, diminishing head. Dominant aroma is alcohol along with scents of sweet spices like cinnamon & nutmeg. Also noticed was a hint of grape. The carbonation is pretty strong making this brew rich and sweet. I didn’t like this one because in all that sweetness I felt like I was drinking liquified dryer sheets soaked in bowling alley wax topped with a dollup of saddle soap all covered by a horse blanket. In my humble opinion, I think the French should stick to making great Bordeaux’s and Côtes du Rhône’s!

eManu (465) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2009
Pours a slighly hazy gold color with a white head. Aroma of malts and spicy fruits. Flavors are malty and bitter sweet, some dry fruits and spices. A little dry finish

BrewDad (5078) - Olympia, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2006
[Bottle] This poured a nice orangish golden color with a very nice head. The aroma right off gave that is was a Belgium then I got a underlying off smell Metal. This was too strong so when I gave the first tatse it was a good belgium ruined wtith a overwhelming metalic taste. The metalic taste was hard to shake. I hope this was just the one batch and the rest are ok. I will try again one day.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2004
Blond beer with a small head. Hop and yeast aroma. sweet malty and spicy taste. The alcohol is not that well masked.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUN 25, 2004
Golden coloured. Fruity aroma. Very sweet and boring flavour. Rather light bodied.
