4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample taken from 330ml brown bottle. Pale yellow in colour, cloudy. Huge whipped cream like head which threatens to take over the glass. Constant vigorous stream of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is on the sweet side containing alcohol and wheat and yeast. Alcohol is definatly detectable throughout, finishes bitter with a sour twang.

bottled. poured very aggrassively with mountain of head. not a problem as i like to leave my bottled beers settle for a while to calm the ’fizz’ down. nose was rather fruity but somewhat alcoholic. good hop citrus taste with a hint of good bitternessbut aftertaste was too alcoholic for my taste. My first Belgium bottled ale and not a bad impression.

very surprised! no longer a fan of golden beers until this one passed my lips! ummmm.... a minor taste of citrus and perhaps a slight bubblegum tone to it. another confusing beer actually!
i’d say grab a four pack and enjoy because i think you certainly will enjoy this one...even if NOT a fan of golden brews! try it.

Bottle. Lively, good thick white head, nice golden colour. Fruity aroma. Nice taste, tangy, sour in a good way, slight citrus finish. Highly carbonated, with a medium mouthfeel. Pretty damned good beer and very drinkable.

Good summer Belgium, tastes a little light. Nice straw flavor. Large firm head with good flavor. Worth picking up.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2004 My wife demo’d my goblet so I had to use a wine glass. This bottle was just about 2 years short of best by date.Poured half the bottle in and a tornado of bubbles erupted in the bottom half of the glass. Whilst entranced with the storm in my glass I failed to notice the huge frothy head that went to a full 4 fingers like a soft serve icecream. Yeasty nose,hint of spice. C’mon allready,waiting for the damn head to go down. OK mouthfeel,slightly yeasty,lemon grass,what else? SHIT,where did my beer go?! Did not taste the alcohol one bit. Very mellow and highly quaffable tho unremarkable. Great summer brew especially if on sale.
I’ll see how this ages.

This is a winner. Amber/gold body underneath a small white head. Aroma is yeasty and spicy, with notes of banana and straw. Same goes for the flavor, also some bubblegum in there as well. Alcohol not apparent at all. Quite drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled conditioned 330ml brown bottle in Duvel tulip, one of a four-pack with the above glass free.Poured a hazy straw body with white foamy head, light carbonation & some lacing.Yeasty wheat nose with banana coming through. Yeasty wheat fruity flavour & alcohol. Neutral mouthfeel. dry finish. Like Lumpy I can’t see why this ale is rated so highly.Its OK, a bit like Hoegaarden(check spelling) with strong alcohol notes. The glass is brilliant though.
