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.

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.

Itís certaintly not amber. More of a cloudy blond. Not very attractive. It smells citrusy, with a hint of hops. The citrus isnít overpowering, which is a good thing. The flavor confirmed the aroma. Citrusy and hoppy. However, there was a slight yeasty aftertaste that wore on me. It wasnít so bad with the first sip, but it got boring and offensive. I canít agree with all of these high 3, low 4 ratings I see here. Other than the cool looking glass, I was thoroughly unimpressed.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 14, 2002
Nice amber color, most generous head, sheets of lace, and the nose is hop floral, with malt under tones. Malt sweet at the front, the top light, finish is pleasantly hopped, dry acidic and moderate carbonation, a quite good beer.

aracauna (3174) - Georgia, USA - APR 13, 2002
Nice blond color. It has heavy carbonation -- steady stream of bubbles -- but the head dissipates quickly. The nose is sweet spiciness that goes into the flavor and is followed by some fruitiness (peach?) The spiciness is almost too strong, but not quite.

The more I drink these Belgian ales, the more I apprecite them. Monstrous head that settles into a thin but constant head. Smells delicous with definite hints of fruit. Quite a nice flavor, beginning with a nice fruity flavor and a nice dry finish almost reminiscent of champagne. Very good.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2002
huge head, stayed almost to the end, good lace from start to finish. spicy tart tangy and only slighty sweet. light hoppiness. Nice golden color. Only slight taste of alcohol. My Bud drinking brother was aprehensive, but did end up liking it - Iíll convert him yet!

The nose is sweet and citric with no pronounced hop aroma. This beer is light-to-medium body, with very little hops flavor. In the mouth, this ale is like Champagne, having lively, acidic qualities. For a beer so high in alcohol, this one tasted exceptionally light. Finish is crisp, short with a slight spiciness that hints at orange peel and fresh ginger. Except for a little diactyl butterness, this ale is very similar in taste and finish to a Brut Methode Champanoise sparkling wine. International Bitterness Units - 30 IBU.
