On tap at Eiderdown. Pours deep golden with small white head into a snifter. Little lacing, medium body, light carbonation, and spicy citrus aroma. Taste is spicy dry citrus and finishes bitter hops. Wouldn’t seek this again.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2013
Dorée trouble, effervescence moyenne, col blanc fin. Plutôt maltée avec des notes fruitées et une petite amertume houblonnée. Une parmi tant d’autres...

Fred82 (2093) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
12oz bottle from IPB. At home.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with a small foamy white head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Yeast and honey with light herbal and floral hops and light malt. Quite a lot of spices too.
Taste : Yeast, honey and spices with light fruits, light hops and light malt. Finish has lots of yeast and honey and is rather dry. Light floral hops. Very light bitterness and a little bit astringent too. Finish has lots of spices too.
Overall : Nothing really special. Rather light but not really refreshing. It seems to me that this could almost be a triple. Alcohol is a bit too low for that but it still feels rather heavy. Too much spices for me, too much honey too. To heavy to be drinkable and not complex enough to be a sipper. I don’t get it.
