Poured a huge head that just wouldn’t go away. Aroma is full of hops and a touch of alcohol, with the flavour also yielding some citrus and malt. A little bitterness on the finish, but quite pleasant. Very tidy.

75 cl Bottle. Nice dense white head above a Golden Ale. Good aroma of hops. Wonderful balance of flavor between hops, alcohol and malt. It ends up with a good aftertaste. Some bitterness at the end.

Kinda a rauchbier aroma, but less pronounced. Some maltiness. Pale golden in color. The head rioted in my glass. After calling in the authorities it settled down somewhat, but continued to stand around leering at me. malt profile with some tickling alcohol and pear notes. Mild spice, but much less than many Belgian Strong Ales.

Bottled. Drank from glass. Pours very dark golden color with a 1 inch head, that dissapates to about 1/8 of an inch after a minute. Never dissappears. Should drink very cold, mine is semi warm, but not bad at all. Would definitely drink this again. This beer has zippo carbonation going on also which is a plus as well. Got it in Memphis for about 3 bucks for 11.2 oz (330 mL) at Buster’s.

75 cl bottle. Oh! an old friend of mine. I will try to rate this neutrally, even though it brings back a lot of good memories. Hazy, pale yellow beer with the most beautiful head you’ve ever seen! Tight like whipped egg whites. The aroma is full of green apples and hops. On the palate it is very carbonated and rather thin - making it the perfect thirst quencher. The flavor is dry and hoppy with perfect balanced malt-sweetness. This is an easily drinking beer, but with many of the nice aspects from Belgian beers. Good stuff!

Very nice blond beer, strong beer, but very tasty. Like the way it sees in the glasses, the white head and the gold under it.

Beautiful cloudy golden colour with a nice thick meringue-like head. Aroma is very fruity, a little grassy and yeasty. Citrus fruit, prunes and raisin flavours with an alcohol and fairly bitter finish. Too bad I only got to enjoy half of it - My glass got spilled....

Poured a big thick white head, and a had a golden appearance. Aroma was spicey and semi sweet. Flavor was semi sweet but not over powering, and it went nicely with the alcohol. I liked the bitter finish, but was smooth as well. Good brew overall.
