COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.

Nice aroma, foamy head, sharp and sweet at the same time.Light citrus flavor with the alcohol taste at the end. Good but not excellent

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 28, 2002
Iíve heard a lot of good things about this beer, however I just couldnít seem to figure out why. The Aroma was ok, and the flavor just didnít seem right. The spice in this beer just didnít seem to fit right.

Perhaps the most effervescent beer Iíve ever tried. A good sharp taste and a most pleasant finish.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2004 Deceivingly light golden colour, big white head. Nice and complex aroma that is hoppy, fruity and yeasty at the same time. Pleasant fruity flavour (citrus) that makes it alarmingly easy to drink. Excellent hop bitter finish. All in all a very nice Belgian strong ale, that can also serv as a good intro to other Belgian ales.

pivo (2542) - GERMANY - JUL 20, 2002
Great stuff. Wonderful aperitif. A sweet and sugary aroma is perhaps not expected given the light, cloudy-blond color. A sweet taste is slightly fruity (grapefruit?) and balanced nicely with a peppery hop finish. Slight dry at the very end in the corners of the mouth. Medium bodied. The alcohol boosts the flavor profile and lets the taste just evaporate right into the palette. Smooth, sophisticated and extremely well balanced – fantastic!

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2002
Nice citrus, grass, sweet alcohol aroma. Light lemon-yellow color with a fluffy head. Sweet hoppy with plum and alcohol taste. Light alcohol finish. Complex and very interesting but well balanced
