330ml. Hazy light golden yellow with a massive frothy white head. Musty aroma of honey, flowers, light bread, pepper, ginger, lemon and clove. Medium velvety body with lively carbonation. Spicy flavor of pepper, clove, lemon, grass, light bread, hay and honey. Nicely bittersweet and well balanced. Very refreshing. Very good. Thanks to DocLock for sending this one!

Great heavy blond beer with nice appearance,a cristal like brillance and a light golden color.The smell is very expressif with hints off noble hops.The nose is also very fresh with fine yeasty impression. The taste is massif and dry,with a nice bitterness and a lot bite.At its best when served cold.

Love this stuff! You sure this is beer? Champaign maybe? Fruity/citrus aroma. Appears light yellow and a bubbly white head. Unfortunately, the head dissapates rather quickly but never the less....very tasty. Very light on the palate....little after taste. A slight astringent finish. Again, tastes light a descent champaign to me...and i love it.

Nice fresh strong pale beer with foamy white head. A little out of the picture in Holland with the arrival of other Belgian beers among which Leffe.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2004 Big bottle while sitting outside at N3rd. Nice sipping brew with big kick.
Rerated after having 2 small bottles in Saratoga: bigger and better than Belgian Goldens (Leffe and Affligem) and richer and cleaner than Tripels (Golden Monkey, Fin Du Monde)

Another beer from Indra. Big frothy latte’ style head on this belgian. Neverending, billoughy saying take a picture it’ll last longer. Hazy yellow occluded almost particulate looking beverage. Taste very strong very potent. Not what it appears to be. Citrusy, spicy, almost hinting on veggie beer. Too potent to be a veggie. Not very smooth but a very interesting beer style and experience.

Kind of a cross between a European pilsener and a Belgian; Fairly sweet, quite malty, and mildly smoky, with moderate amount of spiciness and an increasing bitterness in the finish; Not much going on in the nose, perhaps a bit of spice; Medium bodied, but does a good job at coating the palate; Pale golden in color and a bit hazy; Huge, rocky, white head is very creamy on top and is maintained for eons by a considerable amount of carbonation bubbles; Christ, the head retention is simply incredible, and the thick blanket of lacing is magnificent, so top scores on appearance

(on bottle)Yeah; this sure is a classic beer for the happy beer-lovers. I give this one top points, because of it´s superb use for any kind of food. The fresh grassy flavour, with tones of heavy banana and hops(?). A sneaky golden, allmost pilsner looking, brew,with the gentle strength of an anaconda, fits dry, salty, spicy, sweet; any dinning perfect. A powerfull taste and a soft ending, makes it a dangerrous compagnion for gardenwork; have it when you have nothing else to do the rest of the day(apart from partying).
