Nice stuff. Poured golden with a thin white head. Aroma was fruity and had a touch of butterscotch. Taste was very pleasant. I’ll have to try this again because I have only sampled it so far.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2005
Similar to a belgian blonde but much, much earthier. Lots of yeastiness and a bit of hoppiness. Very full-bodied given its strength.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 1, 2005
Pours a golden amber color, with a nice white head. Aroma is a bit on the weak side, but is fruity - smelling of apples and bananas. Flavor is of sweet apples, pear, and holiday spices. This is a beer that just about anyone can enjoy. Yet another style to love...damn, beer is a wonderful thing.

guzzler67 (1666) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Cloudy amber appearance with a thin head and spotty lacing. Woodsy, malty aroma with a hint of spice. Well carbonated with a mild fruit taste and a medium-bodied mouthfeel. Tart, dry finish. Very enjoyable.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 12, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2005 Slightly dark reddish amber color. Clear and shiny. Generous creamy off-white head. Delicate and light perfume hops with light earthy touches. Overall very light, yet enjoyable flavor. Sweet and creamy taste, with a balanced amount of some kind of mild hops. Earthy, sweet caramel hints, fruity champagne-like hops, Very good subtle complexities. May be worth getting a corked bottle to keep around a few years...

anders37 (23044) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2005
Red orange colour with nice creamy head. Malty aroma with hints of fruits. I can smell apples. Has a sweet fruity and malty taste with a nice bitterness. This is a very good beer.

oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2005
Bottled. Amber coloured with a creamy nice head. Sweet aroma of fruit along with notes of malt and hops. Malty taste with hints of fruit and honey. Finish is a bit bitterish, but overall a nice beer.

highlandlad (1470) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2005 Vive La France. A great biere de garde and one that complements many meals. I’ve found it’s also a beer that non-beer drinkers can enjoy. It pours an earthy tangerine colour with a huge lingering head. The nose is herbal and yeasty. Smooth, medium body, with a deliciously fruity middle and a light dryness in the finish. Tangy orange characters dominate a sweetish body. Fabulous. One of my favourite beers. (Champagne bottle, October 2002)
