It has a good taste, but it remerber me like a cider-beer...it has high alcohol level so you have to drink it slowly and enjoying it

Large bottle. Pours a clear golden with a large white head that lasts. Taste is of Coriander, hops, yeast, spice and malt. Similar aroma. Has a decent body with a dry finish. Overall, easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Bijl (96) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
Oude klassieker....al zo vaak gedronken en verveelt nooit! Goudgeel, enorme witte schuimkraag, volle parelende CO2 en glashelder als je hem niet per ongeluk leegkiepert. Aroma is grassig, citrus fruitig (scherp). Het geurt bij opwarming verweg ook naar de bekende Belgische gist.....banaan bubbelgum. Smaak is fris een direct citrus zuurtje met navolgend een beste bitter....deze gaat weer over in zoet. Gevoel is heel fris en zomers.. De alcohol is goed verborgen. Rustig schenken en je hebt een prachtig bier! Een dikke ja voor deze welbekende!

Heidbummer (129) - SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2016
An old friend revisited. Pours slightly hazy gold, thin head. More carbonation than I remembered. Less aroma than you might expect - hints of yeast and orange. Loads of orange on the taste, and a nice lingering warmth from the abv. Nice balance of yeast and fruit. Still great, nearly 30 years after I first tasted it.

Flesje gedronken (tht 12-2015). Heerlijke hoppige geur . Helder goudgeel bier met mooie witte schuidmkraag die lang blijft. Bitter in de mond met een fruitige, volle nasmaak.
