COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Four generations of the Moortgat family have brought together Pilsner malts, Bohemian hops, and a unique yeast strain to create this intense, aromatic and beguiling ale. This Belgian favourite is best enjoyed chilled (40 - 50 F) with discerning friends or good-looking strangers.

Huge bubbly pure-white head. Beer is yellow/gold. Very carbonated, stream of bubbles rises through center of this lovely Duvel trappist glass that came with the bottle. Strong flavour but not oppresively yeasty. Very drinkable for such high alcohol content. 11.2 oz. bottle.

Hazy yellow color. Big frothy lingering head. Yeasty fruity nose. Tingly carbonation gives way to a malty sweetness. Aftertaste is quite yeasty

Slight citrus lemon aroma. Clear yellow color with a big white head that hung around forever, (bottle conditioned). Very effervesant, tart some phenolic flavors with citrus flavors that had a dry finish. This is a good example of a Belgian Strong Golden Ale. This just isn't one of my favorite styles but I'm rating this based on the style and not on how I like it.

Has a golden color with a good bit of carbonation and big white head. Smell is yeast/spice/fruit. Taste is malted and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall one of the better Belgian beer that I have had...

Yeasty, musty, lemon, apple, banana and a wonderful spiciness in the nose. Cloudy straw colour with big pillowy white head that finally recedes with excellent lacing. Citrus zing with a pleasing bitterness in the finish. Incredible thick mouthfeel. Bottle.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2004
My first ood beer ever...1989, Brussels, Belgium. I wonderif it is the same now as it was then? A classice huge white foamy head, cloudy yellow in color. A musty fruity aroma. Malty with a little tartness. I may even detect a hint of hops in the flavor and aroma. I would say that this is easily a favorite in my book, and a great beer to know that it is available when you nned a good Belgian and no others are around.

What a beer! beautiful golden color with a rocky snow white head that budges for no man. great nose. dry ,light hops and a high abv (rare as I'm led to believe) malty without being to sweet. truly a beer that stands alone

330 ml bottle - Pours a hazy straw golden color with a huge white, creamy, sudsy looking head that lasts, which takes on a craggy mountainous surface appearance after a bit. Spicy smells, sweet fruitiness like banana and nectary pears, a bit of alcohol smell. Kind of sweet tasting, a little malt, definately some bitter hops in the finish, some alcohol flavor, but goes down easily. Lively on the tongue, but not in a bad way. Pretty good feel in the mouth. Nice!
