Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle at home, from Glouglouburp, served in my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours cloudy deep orange with a greenish cast. Thick white head that laces well. Nose is green apple, fresh bread, estery with some barnyard and hay. Very gentle in the nose. Flavours are round and creamy - almost brioche-like in texture, and the low hop bitterness is a pleasant surprise. Nice barnyardy fruit, cream, and hay, with a long, creamy, and lightly spicy finish. I could drink this all day!

bierkoning (12276) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Light orange color, hazy. Hoparoma, somewhat dusty with vanilla. Sweetish, very hoppy flavor, almost creamy with vanilla. Great quality beer, not as deep and complex as Contreras Mars, but with a very fine taste. Tap, Café de Engel Oldenzaal. Malty aroma. Malty sweet buttery flavor, with loads of mango and peach. Lemon and vanilla. Hopbitterness comes up and persists in the aftertaste. Lovely!

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2006
Bottled - Evening Star Brighton. A blonde coloured beer with a nice white head and decent lacing. The aroma is hoppy with lemon citrus notes and a little pepper. The taste is smooth and a little creamy. There is more peppery spicy hop and a good yeasty flavour. Good body and tasty.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle conditioned Chelmsford beer festival, 2006. Maeib bought this then realised that he, Kook and Duff had already had it before. Orange coloured with high carbonation. Candy, sugary sweet and a touch of fizzy cough syrup. A touch of pepper. Easy drinking Belgian.
