COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has a very big head indeed - pour it gently - and a very clean palate, beginning with a dry, lightly citric fruitiness, and finishing with a distinctive and delicate, perfumy, hop character. Very light and fluffy in texture, giving little hint of its strength.

Maybe itís because I was drinking it with Dogwoodís summer brew (which is as subtle as a pipewrench to the head, but beautiful in its own way), the subtleties of this beer really caught my attention. A rich, delicate, and carefully crafted mixture of yeast, honey, soft fruits, gentle hops, and ginger/lemonpepper spices. Did I mention itís beautiful as well? A huge, whipped cream extravaganza of a head over pale gold. The head reminds me of the windswept ice along Lake Michigan in the heart of winter, but this beer has springís flowery soul. You raters who have had light Belgians you like better are lucky folks. Thanks, aracauna!

Smells of malt, yeast and citrus. Golden amber, huge head, lots of carbonation. Hoppy and sweet, almost like a witbier, hint of pineapple. Good tongue tingle (like a triple) A very fine ale.

A great beer to enjoy at any occasion. The hoppy fruitness is smooth with a nice unpretentious finish. This beer certainly lives up to the reputation of the Corsendonk dynasty.

I guess that I would have liked this better on a hot summer day. It has almost a champagne-like fizziness that I just didnít like. I wasnít too impressed. I must say, however, that I couldnít detect the 7.5% ABV

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 Deep yeasty aroma with oranges, pine and hay. Re-rate 3/whole month/02: Foolish jakeb42 left a 4 pack in my fridge. I didnít let the coldness daunt me and slowly warmed them up by going outside, a few hours later to the cellar and then after a day into a tulip glass. I bet any champagne drinker would like this. Worth every penny. Re-rate 3/2/2: 11.2 oz bottle; Huge fruit nose, orange/peach. Make sure you get the yeast evenly through it. Excellent.

Awesome. Not as complex as some other golden ales, but very tasty.

Although Iíve had much better Belgian ale than this it is still quite tasty. Has a very thick head that vanishes quickly, with a floral hint on the palate.
